Celebrate North American Stallions!

WarmbloodStallionsNA.com has introduced a new series of direct emails: Celebrate North American Stallions! If you are receiving this email, you have probably also received the first ones in this weekly series. Every week we will be featuring a North American breeding farm and the stallions they stand.

North America boasts breeders/stallion owners who have been working to produce top-quality sport horses for several decades - some of them have been gaining expertise longer than many of the current European breeders. We are selecting our featured breeders from among the VIP breeding farms on WarmbloodStalionsNA.com.

Meet Orbetello, Internationally Successful Showjumper Stallion!
Orbetello has an easy and uncomplicated temperament and beautiful gaits that he consistently passes on to his offspring.

“Orbetello is the most intelligent horse I have ever met. He enjoys his work, and he has fans everywhere he goes!” – Cynthia Hampton, Hampton Farms LLC, Owner/AA Rider

Orbetello’s strong pedigree endowed him with the inherent qualities necessary to perform at the top level of the sport of showjumping. 

Orbetello is a German-approved Oldenburg stallion who took the highest score in history for free jumping at his approval test in Germany. He was bred by one of Germany’s best breeders, Georg Clausen.

Foundation Fridays

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.

Sea Lion: Offspring in the Ribbons

The versatile Sea Lion xx is siring versatile offspring - and they’re now old enough to start proving it! Shown is Northern Quest Blue Sea, the eldest, who has been on the USEA Top Ten leaderboard in eventing. We're featuring five of Sea Lion's offspring in this article. Sea Lion is approved by most major warmblood registries.

Knowledge Base
Failure of Passive Transfer
Foals need that first milk, the colostrum, to have passive transfer of immunity from the immunity of their mothers. When that doesn't happen, it's called failure of passive transfer and a foal with FPT is "at risk for developing serious medical conditions." According to a recent article on theHorse.com, approximately 5-20% of newborn foals are diagnosed with FPT. They have posted a quick guide to what it is, how to know if your foal has received enough antibodies, and how to prevent FPT.

theHorse: Predicting and Preparing for Foaling
There's a recent article on theHorse.com of special interest to breeders expecting foals. This is a great overview of what to expect from your mare, and how you can tell when she is close to foaling.

In Memoriam: Judgement ISF

Judgement ISF, Crown, was the horse of a lifetime. From the moment he was born, throughout his incredible international show jumping career, as a breeding stallion producing Grand Prix winners, and as a retired celebrity, Judgement ISF was special. Last week, just three weeks shy of his thirtieth birthday, Judgement ISF, Crown, was laid to rest at his birthplace at Iron Spring Farm in Pennsylvania. He was an American original!

Horse&Hound: Loss of a Stallion
Horse & Hound's recent online issue had an article about a much-loved Thoroughbred stallion's recent death, with comments from the owner that everyone can relate to who has ever lost a horse, and especially a stallion.
