Much appreciated!

Don Ramiro is now standing at Revelwood Warmblood Stud on the Central Coast. Further information can be found at www.revelwood.com.au by clicking on stallions link.

Goron Toron Stud in Biddaddaba have Don Ramiro foals give them a call.
Goron Toron does have good blood lined mares guess it really comes back to your mare.
There seems to be the odd Don Ramiro youngster advertised in the HD seems no one is keeping them until riding age, could be a good investment.

I think everyone needs to remember also that a stallion can pass on terrible traits and conformation. Having good blood lined mares does not prove that they have good conformation, paces and respectively good traits.
You need also to think about, these horses can be so highly trained that they indeed can cover up faults. Its like when you do halter classes with any breed of horse, that you get it to stand up in a way that it hides its cow hocks or its pigeon toes. There is a lot of corrective work done to horses so that they indeed look well conformed.

We must also think when a horse is up for sale that these are being sold for a reason. Maybe these Don Ramiro youngsters are for sale due to some fault.
Therefore we should not choose a breeding stallion or a breeding mare solely on name or bloodlines!

Couldn't be more pleased with our Jive Magic colt (yearling) - good looks and stunning movement, he will be a super competition horse with a proficient rider, but he is very lively and reactive - maybe not what I would select as a future 'riding club' horse for an 'average' rider - depends on the mare, the purpose you are breeding for, etc. (keep in mind that I don't know if his liveliness comes from his sire or his dam!)

I actually have a Jive baby out of a Medallion mare and a Don Ramiro mare that is up to its third Medallion baby for Byalee. The Don Ramiro mare was originally sent to Guy Wallace for training as a green baby, and he loved it so much that by the time it reached prelim/novice he bought it and put it in foal!

The Jive baby is 15.2hh at 16 months ... and that's out of a 15.2hh mare! The Don Ramiro mare is 16hh adult height.

The two stallions are likely to give you vastly different foals. We've had a few Don Ramiros sold in the Lochinvar area, since he used to stand at stud quite close, and they don't need to be ridden by professionals. The Jive babies are only just now beginning to be broken in.
