What type of foal are we looking for
in this match
Show presense, movement. As could
be guessed with both Thomas and Tsjerk
blood in her, Dahlia has some of
the best natural movement we have
ever seen. Though easy to train and
handle, when working she has the
unmistakable spark and flair
of a dynamic showhorse. Wander adds
a light, airy touch to the movement
and a regal stature to the conformation.
Best bloodlines you can find.
Dahlia is a star mare and her lineage
is amazing. In the past 4 generations
alone she has two model mares and
two preferent ancestors on the dam
side. Her papers are unbroken all
the way back to 1948. Wander
is equally impressive. He is fully
approved on offspring and has an
approved son - Doaitsen 420. In addition,
the Wander bloodline is one of the
most desired lines to cross with
today. His son Doaitsen, residing
in the Netherlands, was one of the
top 3 most popular breeding stallions
in 2005. Folks are looking for that
Improved height, longer lines, more
Dahlia is a baroque mare,
small in size and
build. We are looking
to Wander to add height, airy
movement and some
of that magnificent hair of his.
Low inbreeding coeffcient.
The inbreeding for this pair is amazingly
low - less than 2%
What are we expecting with this foal?
Of course, one never knows
exactly how a foal will turn out, but
here is what we expect. The foal should
be an impressive mover with lots of spirit,
intellect, independence and pizazz. From
a performance perspective, the foal should
grow into a top class show horse in carriage
driving or saddleseat. S/he will have
a good nature and a fine intellect
for dressage. S/he will therefore easy
to train, but will probably bloom with
an experienced equestrian/trainer (likely
someone used to dealing with dressage
stallions, for example). If the foal
is a female she will have the genes to
be one of the best breeding mares in
the US and an A+ addition to any breeding
This is what we are breeding for.
But of course, ya never know.
