Blog Hop: Let's Make a Baby

Another great blog hop from Viva Carlos! The question this week is about who you would breed your mare (or gelding turned mare) to and why.  The issues of backyard breeding are to be pushed to the side.  I would never want to breed Ypke, but this is a fun blog hop :)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have always liked GVF Sjokolade of Green Valley Farm Fjords.  Nice conformation.  Drafty.  Handsome.  Great pedigree.  Versatile.  Proven in the show ring.  He is one of the top 5 highest NFHR evaluated stallions and Breyer even made a model of him!

Norwegian Fjord Horse Registration evaluation comparison (10 is the highest possible for each category):

Sjokolade: 
Head: 8.0      Neck: 8.75      Forelegs: 8.0      Hind legs: 8.25      Walk: 8     Trot: 8.25
GVF SJOKOLADE
Sjokolade


Ypke: 
Head: 7.5      Neck: 7.25      Forelegs: 7.75      Hind legs: 8.25    Walk: 7.75   Trot: 8.5
Ypke

I think that it would actually probably be a pretty well balanced baby.   I would hope that it would get Sjokolade's neck and Ypke's trot... not sure how temperament would end up though.
