It is autumn, the breeding season is over. Most breeders are making their plans for next year this winter. But how do they do that? On what basis do they make a selection ?
Do they choose a young stallion ? One who still has to prove himself in the sport ?
Or do they choose for the commerce and thereby choose an already proven stallion ?
The first is necessary to create new bloodlines and is of course cheaper. You are breeding on pedigree and hope...
The second one gives you a little more certainty about your foal.
You know if the foal will sell good on auctions or has the talent to be a top sport horse.
Do you choose for your hobby and breed with what you think will work, or do you choose for the commerce and the sales ? Or can the first only exist combined with the second ?
"A good foal from a young stallion from an interesting mother is the most interesting
to purchase" Paul Hendrix
"Young stallions must be given opportunities so we can discover the new talents" Johan Knaap
