Stallions were chosen for conformation, performance, pedigree and quality of their existing offspring.  We have not been disappointed!  Photos of stallions below.
 
Feuertanzer
 
Both Anglo-Trakehners foaled at BDF are by the Trakehner stallion  Feuertanzer (Martini).  Feuertanzer was an obvious choice due to his incredible scores when presented to ATA for breeding license, although an injury prevented Feuertanzer from finishing his performance requirements.  His wonderful nature, ease of trainability and topline are amazing and we knew he'd cross well with a TB.  The goal (if we got fillies, which we did!) was to breed them back to Connemaras for outstanding WB/Connemara crosses.  Success!
 
*Gunsmoke
 
The first Connemara stallion we used for our half-bred breeding program was *Gunsmoke.  An outstanding sire and competitor, *Gunsmoke was shown in eventing and unfortunately ended up back in Ireland!  He did provide us with Black Dog's Fiona (out of Lexy), who is an excellent example of the TB/Conn cross. Black Dog's Fiona (formerly Black Dog's Smokin' Kate) won her 4 year old USEA test in Texas in May 2008.  She received 8's on her gaits.  When he was exported, we turned to his stallion son, WH Top Gun.
 
WH Topgun
 
Approved Connemara stallion son of *Gunsmoke, Topgun has been used in our breeding program for both purebred (bred to Loughin's Leighseach) and halfbred foals (bred to Fiorella).  All of these offspring are exceptional (Mia, Connor, Dylan and Annie) and we will continue to use Topgun in our breeding program!  WH Topgun is currently competing in eventing at Training, looking to move up to Prelim fall of 2014.  Another foal (out of Ella) is expected in the spring of 2015.
 
Artrageous
 
A TB stallion who has competed lightly at USEA events (novice) but through preliminary at schooling shows, we bred Ocoee to Art in 2011 to see what kind of half-bred baby Ocoee would produce.  Art is a wonderfully uphill TB stallion with excellent conformation and temperment.  He moves like a WB and has been a wonderful sire of half-bred connemaras for us.  We are expecting a half-bred by Art in 2015 out of Loughin's Leighseach.
 
Seven Hill's Grey Ghost
 
An approved ACPS stallion, Mosby has sired many proven performers for Donna Duckworth and other ACPS breeders.  Mosby produced an excellent colt (now gelding), Toby, when bred to Swift Ocoee River.  Their first son, Nicholas Mosse, is a young stallion in Arizona.  Mosby is now gelded.
