I've had a few Dutch Warmbloods on my ranch for maybe a couple GYs, but I haven't really done anything with them.

But yesterday, I decided to expand my ranch, and buy two custom imports, one performance and one color:

The color custom filly turned out perfect for my color goals! I plan on breeding dark colored chestnuts, flaxen or not, with sabino, and black sabinos. Mainly at least.

I also plan on focusing on breeding high movement and conformation in my herd.

That filly is just absolutely breathtaking! You couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. Congrats!

I finally decided to do it.

I bought a breeding license and a phantom mount so that I can offer semen to other breeders. I just put up a few straws from my two older boys Smile

Well, I recently went out and bought two more color customs, in order to have more foundations for sabino in my herd to avoid inbreeding. Got one colt and one filly!

In my experiences, color customs never show well, so I decided not to waste the money putting them in training, and will just use them for breeding.

I also have to brag on some of my babies for a sec Very Happy

The last born from last season, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is a beautiful colt with a good temperament, and he showed movement at 3 months of age! Faster than all my others so I am excited about him.

I am also loving my girl [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], full sister to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. She is shaping up well.

And then my boy [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. I completely missed him being prl/prl, so I am not sure what color he really is, but he surprised me with his very good movement and presence! His movement may not even be maxed yet... we'll see. But he is looking very nice for a stud prospect.


Oh, and the other day I found a FS Dutch Warmblood colt for sale from Hagglin Harry! I love collecting FS. Don't know why. But look at his temperament! I was super excited to see sabino sireline! But sadly he does not have sabino! Drat! Crying or Very sad

Lately I have been breeding 7-8 mares a season, something I did not intend to do originally. But I am changing up my strategy a little. Usually I keep most of my colts, and then use them all as studs, some just more than others, to keep more diverse bloodlines. I've decided to try things differently with my DHHs, so I am in the process of switching over, and trying to breed up a few stallions. I am now going to select heavily from all of my colts each season, and I will try to only keep 1 or 2 at the max from each season, if I get several.
I'm sure a lot of you saw I used to have a bunch of studs, but now I have narrowed it down to my top 5 stallions, and I will soon be finding new homes for my other males.

Hopefully, this season and the next will be my last 2 big foal crops for a while.

On another note, 2 of my stallions, Chemicus and Noval Thought, earned their BChs and are doing fairly well in intermediate classes. I think they might actually have a chance at being accepted into the registry when they turn ten. Smile

Life has been so busy lately, and I have only minimally maintained my DW ranch. Today though, I am going to sit down and sort through my herd and try to figure out my next moves.

At this point, I am not super impressed with my herd. Color wise I am, but temperaments and fitness overall in my herd are so low! I want to cull, but I know at this point in my program my horses aren't going to be too impressive, so I am trying to force myself to breed up.

I've got a lot of sorting and planning to do Neutral
