Sorry I neglected this site for so long after posting my query. I am trying to apprise myself of all of the information posted in response to my initial request.
But, to clarify...
I am not necessarily looking for Pure Polish, or even Polish for that matter. I am looking for size, substance, and athleticism. I simply initiated my search via a few Polish postings when my search started late in the Fall.
I am interested in a tall prospect who has the height and substance to campaign in Sporthorse, (perhaps Dressage), and hopefully Endurance. I have a few Polish/Russian mares who are already sizeable, (15.1-15.2+), and who I think, if crossed wisely, will start my Heavyweight Endurance line. I am hopeful to unearth a 16 hand powerhouse.
It is a crazy time to begin a search for the elusive heavyweight colt/stallion, because the market is flooding with horses who need to find immediate placement. I am not in a hurry to scoop up a close facsimile to my pre-requisite, perfect.
Hopefully those who are looking to place a pretty, exotic, and typey colt will consider whether the young guy has the heart, lung, bone, and disposition for the athletic disciplines, before contacting me with an imminent timeline to move him.
I appreciate beauty, but it won't necessarily hold up to the rigors of higher level Dressage movements, never mind the taxing demands of Endurance.
I am offering a home. I have a full-time turnout situation on 20 acres of rolling pasture. I like the horses I work with, and campaign, to live life like horses, and enjoy the journey as much as I do.
I am a small farm, hoping to improve on the athletics of movement, in an efficient and natural way.
If you have a colt/stallion, who has size, an athletes' pedigree, and ground covering movement, chat back with pictures and particulars.
Hoping my Herdsire is among you.
