I wanted to bump this thread up as we are coming into 2013 and the first *Pogrom foal crop and I'm hoping Liz and others that might be expecting will post photos here.
I waddled back and forth and finally pulled the trigger today and bought a breeding to *Pogrom. I really wanted to breed to a Gazal sire line stallion (I previously bred to the performance multi res. national champion *TA Monet+/ and had a MM colt until last week)... but there are a lot of options out there and it took nearly a year of "thinking" before I settled on a sire to breed to.
I am unbelievably excited and am still on the fence as to which of my mares I will take him to- I think he looks promising with both my Russian/Psyche mare and my Pure Polish girl.
Here are some photos I took of him last year at Scottsdale (I realize these are almost a year old now- but thought I would share):
Barzan, also mentioned on this thread, is coming available as a sire in 2013 and I am on the wait list, although with my recent purchase and his $4500 introductory stud fee I will likely pass on the opportunity unless something big happens before my place in line is called. I did hear a rumor that he was bred to a couple of Al Shahania's mares last year later in the Spring, so it will be interesting to see what comes from him this year, if any foals
Is anyone else on the waitlist?
