A rational cross-breeding
CHER EPOUX although being born from an original cross is not the result of chance. We had managed her mother’s breeding career for our clients who had put her in pension on our breeding farm. It had previously been crossed with show jumping stallions and its products seemed promising (3 of them are performing well in CSI2* and CSI3*). We were looking for a mare with big strength points to cross with steeple chase thoroughbreds whose qualities we knew – balance, solidity, quality of tissue and very good mind – for having already used them on our AQPS mares. Epouse du Taillan SF met our criteria: we then acquired it.
The first two fillies by Sabrehill xx and the AQPS Balou du Camp both won the local foals contest and climbed to the podium of the interregional of Cluny (Burgundy, France). We were well aware of the production of Network xx for having used it on sports mares from its arrival and then regularly for the AQPS production. Unfortunately the covering of 2009 and 2010 did not result in live foals and in 2011 Network had only 3 authorised cards for the sport, the others being reserved for racing mares. Epouse du Taillan SF was one of the three elected and gave birth in 2012 to CHER EPOUX. .
