Breeding Advice

Ferdeaux is a prepotent stallion whose good qualities are strongly inherited.  In particular his canter, which was rated a 9 by the inspectors, comes through to his offspring.  Ferdeaux can be expected to add blood, good temperament, movement technique and good use of the hind leg.  He is ideally paired with long-lined mares.

Ferdeaux is a handsome dark bay, and he is homozygous for black, which means he can produce no chestnut foals.
