Three generations of mares at the Herwart von der Decken Schau
Stutteri G consists of nine broodmares. This year two are having a year “off”. Four of the seven pregnant mares are in foal with stallions from Blue Hors, Filomena being one of two who are in foal with Monte Carlo. Besides Filomena, bronzemedal-mare De Vie G. b. Blue Hors Don Olymbrio/Blue Hors Don Schufro is also in foal with Monte Carlo. Just like Shanti G. b. Sezuan/Salomon/Don Schufro is in foal with the stallion-favourite; Farrell. A fourth mare who is expecting an offspring by a Blue Hors stallion at Stutteri G is De Vie’s mother; silver medal-mare; Duffy b. Don Schufro. Duffy was bought at Blue Hors by Stutteri G back in 2016, and is now happily in foal with Blue Hors Zack b. Rousseau/Jazz – a match that the stud expects a lot from! Besides being a stallion match, that has proven itself as extremely strong with horses like Sezuan, Straight Horse Ascenzione, Skovens Tzarina and more, it is also a match of genes which showed itself as being extremely fruitful as Duffy was successfully inseminated with only one insemination in her foal heat at Stutteri G.
If you dive a little bit deeper down in the bloodlines of the Stutteri G-mares, you will sense a tendency in the use of the golden mix of the loose shoulders from the electric KWPN-blood with the powerful hind legs and strong mechanicsfrom the German stallions. Something you see in Filomena’s mother; Wynona G., who is a mix based on the Dutch Jazz-son; Wynton and the German Belissimo M. Two bloodlines which gives you the best of two worlds when combined, allowing a strengthening of the next generation of offspring. This focus on mindful breeding shows its worth especially with Filomena participating in the Hewart van der Decken Schau.
”Filomena’s invitation to Verden is a pattern that she mimics from her mother Wynona G. as well as her damsdam Bella Donna. Both Filomena’s dam and damsdam were invited and participated in the prestigious Herwart von der Decken Schau. We were there for both Filomena and her mother Wynona, who are both bred at our stud, but it was the speaker during the presentation of Filomena, who made us aware of the fact that also Wynonas dam, Bella Donna, had participated at the same show. This making Filomena the third mare in her family tree to be invited to the Herwart von der Decken Schau”
- Helene Geervliet
This means that whenever Helene, her rider and niece, Michelle Geervliet and trainer Carsten Vesterskov plans out what stallions has made enough of an impression on them at the inspections, try-outs and open house-events to be matched up with one of their mares during the breeding season, it is always with the bloodlines of their mares in mind. These are bloodlines that excites the stud every day, while also proving themselves to be successful, especially now when it is time to take a breather with the riding horses doing well, the mares being integrated and pregnant, the foals socialising with each other in the fields and the weather still treating everyone nicely.
The future does seem bright at Stutteri G with promising foals and exciting riding horses.
