Foundation Fridays
Recent Foundation Sires Featured on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com
We've been posting Foundation Fridays on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com since 2018. Every other Friday we feature a foundation sire - one who has been influential in the development of warmblood breeds. We're pulling from the incredible archive of The Horse Magazine, published by Chris Hector of Australia. Thank you, Chris, for permission to draw on your expertise!

In each of these articles, we introduce a Foundation Sire, and we also include links to stallions with his bloodlines who are on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com.

Introducing Four Offspring by Diamo Blue
This is PF's DaVinci W, a 2017 gelding sired by Diamo Blue, one of four owned by Ryan Pedigo Sport Horses that are featured in a new article on WarmbloodBreeding.com.

All four are showing promise, and are a testimony to Diamo Blue as a sire, and his fantastic bloodlines (Diamant de Semilly on the top and Chacco Blue on the dam's side).

Learn more about these youngsters, including videos - click here.
Interview with Joris Brabander
One of the goals of WarmbloodBreeding.com is to bring awareness of writings around the internet that are relevant to North American breeders.

One recent article that we found interesting was an interview on WorldOfShowjumping.com with jumper breeder Joris de Brabander. His world-famous Stal de Muze has proven itself many times over. Find our synopsis and links on the Articles page of WarmbloodBreeding.com.

Knowledge Base
theHorse: Housing Stallions With Other Horses
theHorse.com discusses best practices for housing stallions, and new research addressing the question. "Housing stallions has, traditionally, not been very welfare-friendly." Research might help stallion owners make better decisions.

theHorse: Best Practices for Weaning
Once again this fall our youngsters were weaned and started on their independent lives and careers. theHorse.com posted a new article to help breeders make the transition process as smooth as possible.
