Borculo Online Foal Auction: two jumping foals in the spotlight

Last week, we reported about the Borculo Online Foal Auction’s first selected dressage foals. This week we gladly lift a corner of the veil in regard to two very interestingly bred jumping foals. Both of them a filly, and ideal to every breeder for setting up a striking dam line. With their strong models, movement and background these foals will unmistakably have talent for the sport.

‘Very beautiful type’

The first filly (photo) is out of a famous Dutch damline. Her sire is the Holstein top progenitor Colman. He stands at the basis ofa series of striking jumpers, such as L.B. Convall (Philipp Weishaupt), CatwalkIV (Robert Whitaker) and Emir R (Rolf-Göran Bengtsson). The dam is by Calido I,producer of famous broodmares. In 2018, she already brought a KWPN approvedstallion. The granddam produced a former Dutch champion in jumping and the greatgranddam also produced a famous Grand Prix horse. Selector Pieter-Jan Berkers: ‘Thisfilly has a very beautiful type and a light-footed canter.’

Popular KWPN stallion

The second filly is by Apardi, a 2016 Olympic Games participant with Daniel Bluman and a full brother to Bacardi VDL (Janika Sprunger/Edwina Tops-Alexander). She is her dam’s first foal, who is by the impressive breeding stallion Thunder van de Zuuthoeve. The granddam produced a very popular KWPN stallion. He is a young international jumper and has already several approved sons. Selector Floris van Leuken: ‘This filly has an appealing model, with a beautiful head. She moves very nicely!’
