Two of the Sandreo team.

We have bought or bred five foals by Sandreo (Sandro Hit/Flemmingh). Sandreo puts his stamp on them starting with a very attractive head and neck. All of the Sandreo offspring which we have worked with have been very easy to train showing a great willingness to work. He also makes his offspring with good length in the front leg and quite able to pick them selves up in the front. Two of our 3 year old Sandreo offspring are, in front, Crispin (Sandreo/Jet Set) and Calypso (Sandreo/Jazz) were walking in the pasture when we caught this photo. In spite of the reputation of Jazz bringing some difficult horses we find Calypso one of the most willing and calm horses we have worked with.

The yet unnamed colt is a brother for Bastion (Sandreo), Caprice (Sandreo), Demarko (Johnson) and Espertina (Sir Oldenburg). Only Bastion remains on our farm. Bastion is in training and will be shown at the June PEI Dressage show. We will get some more pictures up soon.
