Deusi and Dior


Deusi has been adopted by Dior. Dior will be a great mom some day. I put Ripley out in the field with these two, and Dior promptly kicked him and ran him around to tell him to be nice to her adopted daughter.

Deusi is one year old. She is simply gorgeous and so sweet.

Coat quality, oh my!


This is Bonnie Bedelia, age three.

Look at the quality of her coat. I've been told she has the "sooty factor."

Just hay and her Dynamite supplement. That's all.

(I'm a rep if anyone wants to try it for their horses. You can order through me.)

Waiting around at the show


Trisha took Zip to a HJ show down the street to school inbetween the classes.

He went around the course 3 times.

We were really impressed with his composure and willingness.

I have a Flip video of the rides, but the show photographer didn't take any photos of them jumping because they were schooling, not competing. Grrrrrr.

Words from a German re Rohdiamant as the best Rubenstein son

certainly rohdiamant.
the statistics speak a clear language:
40 licensed sons
510 registered mares
73 of them stpr
251 registered sport horses in 2007and even more valuable:45 of his get competing in S-level.can't beat that number.
i googled the net out of fun these days for foals by rohdiamant: you can't find any for sale.

We have 2 Rohdiamont grandsons for sale, Zippy and Ripley.

Why shop for your horse in the USA? (copied from a forum)

At today’s exchange rate:
$50,000 US = 32,338 Euros
$75,000 US = 48,407 Euros

If you are looking at paying 32,000 Euros for the horse, it is probably priced BY ITS OWNER at 15,000E – 25,000E, with commissions accounting for the rest. If you are lucky and have very good contacts and a good agent, you could probably find a “decent” 7-8 year old in that price range.

If you are willing to pay 50,000E for the horse, it is probably priced BY ITS OWNER at 25,000E – 35,000E. That would get you something a bit fancier, or something with a solid M show record, or something not as experienced but with an AA temperament and still enough talent to make FEI.

... Just remember that importation to NY plus USDA quarantine is running about $7000 now.
