So a few years ago, I went out to Wisconsin (in February --- NOT recommended AT ALL) and saw a couple of stallions that are from outside our breeding program. The big man at the barn was Nancy Maloney's Ironman - a proven jumper and hunter breeding sire, nice guy, tons of fun to ride and just a gem.
The younger stallion was an import from Germany. His name is Barleone and he is a love...just sweet as can be, relaxed & good natured and very kind. Now that all being said, his sire Barnaul is quite famous over in Germany even though he has passed away. So here is Barleone's website - http://www.performancewarmbloods.com/horses/barleone and this is his sire's - http://www.hengststation-voelz.de/hengste09/nuruebertgsamen/barnaulxx/index.html There is an English version...I just have to find it and add the link. In the meantime, have a peak at the photos! Such pretty boys!!!
In any case, there is a local breeder here in PA, who bred their Galoubet mare to Barleone. This is Big Ayr LSF (aka Britt)...
She is quite a mover and a very special filly! If you have some time, check out her website - http://www.laststopfarm.com/forsale/bigayrlsf.html
