Black Friday shopping

I almost resisted shopping on Black Friday, though I was sorely tempted by many, many excellent deals.

There was one deal I couldn’t resist, though…

mannhattan

I bought a breeding to the Oldenburg stallion Mannhattan. It was a deal too good to pass up, and I think he’ll be a nice match for Gina.

Mannhattan’s offspring have done well in a variety of disciplines- several are competing at the FEI levels of dressage, some are doing well in the hunter ring, and a handful are eventing. (I even met one foxhunting a few weeks ago!) His offspring are well conformed, athletic, and have pleasant temperaments.

Gina is already entered in the Main Mare Book of ISR/Oldenburg NA, and the foal will be eligible for registration as an Oldenburg. I plan to keep the foal and use it for the same thing I use Moe and Gina for: dressage, eventing, and hunting.

There are several steps between buying a breeding and having a foal on the ground, but I’m very excited that we’re on our way!

I hope Gina has another mini-Gina.
