Finding the perfect match

I'm sure most everyone has read a romantic story or watched a comedy which has a lovely story about 2 partners finding one another. One of those tale of how they get along like a house on fire and just flat out revel in being around the other person...well, every so often a horse sale goes just that smoothly and the horse adores their person from the first interaction! (and what fun it is to be a part of the process of matchmaking!)

So without any more fuss or flowery language, let's all congratulate Doug of Dark Horse Stables in PA on the purchase of Avebury WF!!! "Dillon" and Doug are building a big trust bond at the moment but the summer and fall will involve some jumper competitions and then there is a trek to Wellington, FL for the winter circuit!

Best of luck to the dynamic duo!!!!

What is a ______ (fill in Dutch, German, Swiss, American) Warmblood?

If you've ever wondered what kind of horse is actually a ___warmblood, this website is a handy dandy tool to be able to accurately look up their bloodlines*.

So if you've ever wondered how to look up a pedigree to see who is who, bloodlines and what percentage of Thoroughbred blood our wonderful Waldaire carried - HERE is his pedigree.

You'll see he carries just 25.78% blood (listed as xx/ox or TB/Anglo Arab) - which is part of why he crosses so well on mares that are more "blooded" or full TB or Arabian.

I can not explain how valuable a website like this one is, really. For one, it is secure - which means only members can login and enter data (no monkey business or fibbing). Secondly, it does the mathematical calculations and can be used to go back multiple generations. Third, it is secure. If I had a nickel for every time I've had to login to Allbreedpedigree and remove a Gotland Pony from Waldaire's 6th bank balance would be healthier. ;)

So check out the names and pedigrees of famous horses! Find out more of who's who in their genetics!

* - only caveat - this is a database that is based out of Holland and Germany. Many North American bred horses are not listed, so pedigrees will appear incomplete.
