If it feels like the right thing then you do it, us horsey types aren't exactly known for head ruling heart decisions :lol: can't wait to see him with your guys!

Aww he's cute Jennie, whats his other breeding? I've met Smooth Operator a couple times (several years ago now mind you) he was a very nice stallion :-)
What are your plans for him?

Hi Claire I've never seen Smooth Operator in the flesh as he is now based over in the east of France somewhere, have heard that he could be rather a handful but is a stunning horse ....

Darwin's dad is a Swedish Warmblood Quasym d'Edenique - http://www.webpedigrees.com/pedigree.php?nid=612215

Mum is Riva de Muzon - http://www.webpedigrees.com/pedigree.php?nid=318512

so a 1/4 Smooth Operator, bit of pony blood and the rest Swedish WB.... dad is 172 cm and mum is about 150 so shouldnt be too big and with a good bit of bone but not too heavy - here's a photo from the other day of him now ...

His dad looks nice :thumbup:
Saw Smooth Operator quite a few times when he was at Hennebont for a few years was going to put Cleo to him but put her to Murphy instead, it worked out well anyway as Trelawney is a huge 17hh beautiful boy.
