Our Floristan daughter,Florentina is getting ready to have her fourth foal. She was bred as a three year old and has had a foal each of the past three years and is expecting her fourth by Sir Oldenburg. Sir Oldenburg is a stunning black Sion/Contender who has been trained as a dressage horse but has a lot of jumping blood in his breeding. "Flo" has always had a short gestation length, usually ten and a half months.

Her first foal was by Sandreo he is now three and just started under saddlle

Her second foal was a filly also by Sandreo. Caprice was sold to Pine Grove Stables in Nova Scotia.

The third foal was a colt by Johnson called Demarko

With these three great foals we now have to decide on which stallion to use on Flo this year. With two Sandreo foals we are thinking of using Johnson again but we will want to see the Sir Oldenburg foal before making a final descision.

In the mean time Flo is "Waxed" and is showing signs of soon adding to her list of great foals.
