Zijde Roos Jumping

Megan and the 4 year old Zijde Roos(Burggraaf/Hofnar) went to Gingerwood Stables for a few jumping lessons. The mare shows nice form over fences, and has a lot of fun doing it!

Crispin in the snow

Crispin , a Sandreo/ Jet Set colt was out enjoying a romp in the fresh snow. Crispin will be two next year and shows the typical attractive Sandreo head and neck.

Weanlings at play

Zandman Trains in Virginia

Zandman (Quattro B/Cavalier/Le Mexico) is currently in training with Martha in Charlottesville Virginia. The four year old gelding, like his sire Quattro B, shows great ability as both a jumper and a dressage horse. At this stage of training we are working on his fitness and introducing him to a variety of experiences including flat work, some small jumps and some cross country work

Wiseman wins the IBOP and DG Bar cup classes at Iron Spring Farm.

Wiseman, a five year old Lord Sinclair/Lancet/Rubenstine gelding won the IBOP and the DG Bar cup classes at the KWPN keuring at Iron Spring Farms. These two classes are designed to test the suitability of young horses for dressage. Martha rode Wiseman to scores of 77 and 77.5 in these classes. Wiseman recieved 8 for walk, 7.5 for trot and 8 for canter. The classes were very competitive with horses such as Iron Spring’s Watch Me and Sporting Chance Farm’s Wildcard in the classes. A win at the legendary Iron Spring Farm’s beautiful setting was particularly satisfying.
These classes are offered at all ten KWPN keurings and the scores are ranked for all North American keurings . We will see how these scores rank at the end of September.

Foal photos

As the summer goes on the foals become more independant and will spend more time away from their dams and with the other foals. Here Dezarma (Verdi/Hamlet) and Demarko (Johnston/Floristan) graze together.

Daniosa (Lord Sinclair/Tango) is looking elegant as she loses her foal coat.

Diva Rose (Viva Voltare/Idocus), although younger, is shedding out to her bright bay color. She has now joined the other three foals in the big pasture.

Breeding Update

We have finished breeding mares for this season. We normally ultrasound at 14 days post breeding and again about 24 days. After 24 days we can see a heart beat and this is a good indication that the pregnancy will go on to produce a foal.

We ultra sounded the two later bred mares for the second time this week. Everything is progressing normal on both these pregnancies. This gives us seven pregnant mares to foal next year. We are very pleased with our success breeding this year as we have seven pregnant to first service with frozen semen. Some good management and a lot of good luck !

Pregnancies for next year are:
Florentina is in foal to Sir Oldenburg
Veganieta is in foal to Brentano II
Waltzalina is in foal to Johnson
Zinosa is in foal to Lord Sinclair
Vuzarma is in foal to Concorde.
Virtual Rose is in foal to Sir Oldenburg
Virgina is in foal to Donnatelli.

The first five will foal in late April and the last two will be June foals. These should give us some interesting foals. Bretano II and sir Oldenburg are new sires for us and we have had foals from the other four sires. We have sold two of this years foals, Verdi/Hamlet and the Lord Sinclair/Tango.

Wingar at Gingerwood

It always is a great thrill to see a horse which we have sold do well at a show. This week we saw five year old Wingar (Orame/Flemmingh) at his first big jumper show, held at Gingerwood Stables in PEI. Wingar is now owned by Carolyn Dohoo and she has done a great job of developing him. He placed well in the one meter classes and won the pre green hunter class. I am also adding a photo of Wingar in front of one of the great Maritime landmarks, Cape Blomidon.

It is exciting to see their mature colors. Diva Rose NPF (Viva Voltare/Idocus) is younger and has not yet joined the older foals in the big pasture.
