I have a nice, older style Oldenburg mare I am interested in breeding to an arabian stallion. Can anyone make any recommendations of where to start looking?
Stallion must be elastic in his movement, with a good, pushing hindleg. No trailing hocks, please. Prefer strong coupled with an excellent loin connection.
She is pictured in her teens, after having several foals, hence her dropped topline.
She a lovely mare. There are a couple of extremely nice Arabian stallions that if this mare was mine I would seriously look into, Magic Aulrab, Aul Turbo Charged & Golden Essence. Magic Aulrab is about as good as it gets when you want to improve the loin and shoulder on any mare, he is well proven to do just that. He also has 3 lovely gaits, including a real canter. I LOVE my MA colt from this year! Huge walk, trot and canter, plus he has a super disposition. The Aulrab line is very well known for correctness and overall trainability. Aul Turbo Charged is another very lovely representative on this sire line. Both stallions have solid pedigrees that are jammed packed with athletes. Golden Essence is another one to look at, different pedigree with El Shaklan & russian breeding. He's very beautiful, big and correct! I really loved this horse when I saw him at SHN. Very very nice boy!
Good luck in your search!
