New Colt (2013, Casall/Quinar/Cassini I) in Holstein! Spectacular!
2nd part of this video is Liz's 2-year old, Canturo/Acorado/Landgraf
mare who will be prepped to go to her mare performance test this
coming summer, and will also be bred this spring. She is a premium
filly out of Traviata, a 52 Bonit mare. She is from stamm 776 - one
of the most successful mare lines in the world, and was bred by the
breeders of the renowned stallion Ramiro.
Also of note: her
3/4 brother was champion foal in Holstein for 2011(the same year she
was born). We look forward to her progress, and to her progeny being
every bit as spectacular as she is!
year’s Siegerhengst (champion stallion) in Holstein by Casall.
A half-brother to my colt in Holstein (Casall/Quinar/Cassini
I). Casall sons have
been Siegerhengst or reserve Siegerhengst for the last three years,
commanding between 400,000 to 600,000 euro at the auction held
immediately following the Keuring.
They now limit Casall's breeding to only approved Holsteiner
mares breeding in Holstein, and only 300 mares.
been a very successful breeding season with three lovely, healthy
foals on the ground - two here at Waters Edge and one in Germany!
delivered a healthy colt! Bristol was a maiden, and everything
progressed smoothly, with me and my staff doing the delivery
ourselves! Kudos to everyone who helped out! He is a very leggy dark
brown foal with a black dorsal stripe - may end up being a grey. He
is already showing a fabulous effortless canter around his stall -
flying changes and all! He
should mature to at least 16.3h. Stay tuned for pictures and video!
her foal on 4/14. She's
a beautiful black filly (will be grey) named Fallon (Dakota
VDL-Saluut II-Merano E). She is by Dakota VDL (Hyperion Stud) and is a member of his
first foal crop here! Both
mom and baby are doing great. She
is athletic and quick...zooming around in true Holsteiner fashion -
leaping and bucking!
Liz's 8 yo
mare in Holstein, Germany, Vinara (Quinar-Cassini I-Latino) just
gave birth to a beautiful colt (Casall-Quinar-Cassini I) on 4/19. He
is a leggy bay with three socks and a narrow blaze like his phenom
jumper sire, Casall la Silla (2nd worldwide in jumpers). It's
very exciting because no one has this combination and, given
Quinar's passing last year, he is of particular significance.
Holstein, Germany: Liz's 2 yo mare (Canturo-Acorado-Landgraf) will
be prepared for her mare performance test (MPT) next spring. This
filly is from a very successful mare line, Stamm 776 (Ramiro). She
is the first foal out of a 52 bonit mare. Liz
has high hopes for her and believes she will achieve states premium
status. She is an
incredible mover, very elastic and suspended in her trot, and super
balanced in canter ... she will have a HUGE jump in her! (Watch for
eagerly await Bristol's foal who is due on May 23rd. Bristol
(Campesino-Caracas-Merano E) is a maiden. She is turning 4 this
spring and Liz will be breaking her in the fall once the foal is
weaned, and she will be out competing in 2014!
