Bagatelle at her first show.

We had the thrill of showing Bagatelle (Donnatelli/Jazz/Zeoliet) at her first dressage show. It was Walk Trot at a Discovery show but she scored 8's for gaits and preformad like a seasoned show horse. She is three so Megan has not asked her to come on to the bit. Also, Bagatelle is our first "home bred" which we have had an opportuity to show at dressage.

Breedings for 2010

We have finished breeding for this year with five of our seven mares in foal.

Veganieta (Jazz/Zeoliet) is in foal to Contango. This is a new stallion for us and we used him because we have seen some great Jazz/Contango offspring. We also watched the super Contango son Ravel last year and decided we should have a Contango. Veganieta is 17 hands and is long legged so we think it should be a good cross.

Florientena (Floristan/Pilot) is again in foal to Sir Oldenburg. Florientena has given us four good foals, two by Sandreo and one each by Johnson and this year by Sir Oldenburg. We like them all but a repeat of Espertina would be great for next year.

Waltzlina (Jet Set/Haarem) is again in foal to Johnson. We like her this year filly by Johnson. We think Johnson improved on her conformation with good movement also. We again would be pleased with a repeat.

Vuzarma (Hamlet/Purioso) is in foal to Verdi. This will be her second Verdi following a Concorde this year and Concord two years ago. We liked the Verdi of last year, Desarma very much and decided we wanted another. Verdi has been very sucessful as a young jumper and carries great bloodlines.

Verginia (Welt Hit II/Zeoliet) is in foal to Sandreo after two Donnatelli foals. Both the Donnatelli foals looked good to us but we like the Sandreo offspring we are working with and wanted another one.

Virtual Rose and Zaniantha are not in foal this year.
