At first glance, I really like Spill the Beans.

Little overboard on the baby oil for Ivanhowe.

Not in love with most of the new French stallions. Maybe it just bugs my esthetic sense, but there seem to be a few with ewe necks, or necks set awkwardly on not-fabulous shoulders. :?
If I imagine Silvery Moon as a bay, IMHO he is built very nicely. I wonder if the German Olympic show jumping team will have a batch of flashy paints in their stable in a decade or so? :D

Castle du Berlais is quite nice - note his bone and strong hind end. His neck does tie in a bit low but that's not the part you ride ;) .

De Treville and Shaiban are both conformational trainwrecks though. I don't know why they even let that photo of De Treville be used for advertising.

No love for Recorder? I thought he was easily the best-looking of the bunch.

Some more new stallions in the US that haven't been posted here yet

Gentlemen's Bet (Journeyman Stud, Florida)

Texas Ryano (Ballena Vista Farm, California)
Image

Market Rally (Irish Hill Century Farm, New York)
Image

Arpista (Horsepower Farm, Ontario)
Image

Unfettered (Xanthus Farm, Pennsylvania), one of several Xanthus Farm stallions that would make very nice geldings. Xixixi, Andiron, Victory Isle, Southern Success, In The Woods, the two white studs that haven't done anything in their lives except breed, none of them need their testicles.

Xanthus Farms also breeds sporthorses though so that is what some of those sires are being used for.

If they were serious about sporthorse breeding they'd actually train and show their stallions in that realm. None of them have pedigrees that are particularly notable for sporthorse breeding either. Just because you can call a mediocre racehorse or a horse of a rare color a "sporthorse stallion" doesn't make it so.

Good looking horse. You can see both the War Front and the Tiznow. (Might be a cross to explore in the future.)
