Horse families in festive atmosphere...
We have had a great breeders' Advent with more than 500 guests Saturday evening. In our Christmassy indoor arena the new stallions, known sires and mares were shown. Jan Ahlers cared for a good atmosphere with Christmas songs for everyone to sing along.
The young stallions and the proven dam line of Heida were featured this year. Furthermore, family pictures with the mares Lady Heida I and Lady Heida II (both by Landor S) drew attention to the founder of the Station.
Seven new stallions have been presented in Lemwerder. For Dance by For Romance - Rubiloh, premium stallion of the Hanoverian licensing, and Devonport by Dancier - Ravallo, also licensed in Hanover, were shown for the first time. The first family picture around Lady Heida I has shown her and her three daughters: Lady Lordana (by Lordanos), who has been placed in advanced showjumpings (1.50 m), Lady's Core (by Corlensky G), Lady Pleasure (by For Pleasure) and her son Diamant de Plaisir (by Diamant de Semilly), who completed the picture.
The attendees of the 30-day-test showed how fit they were after returning the day before. Adoro by Ampère - Donnerschwee was presented for the first time to the breeders. Beniro (by Bretton Woods) and Honoré du Soir (by Easy Game) were presented under saddle as well. The Florencio-son Florenz convinced not only with his performance, but also with moved pictures of his first foals.
Also directly back from the 30-day-test was the youngster Ogano by Ogano Sitte - Diarado, who convinced with his rideability. He will be available for breeding in 2016.
Another, young family picture began with Casino Berlin (by Caspar), followed by his son Casino Grande, who recently has gotten very good grades for his canter and jumping techniques at the 30-day-test, and his son, an eight-day-old foal out of Hollywood (by Corlensky G).
A new stallion showed his jumping potential: Livester by Lordanos - Carthago, bred by Janne and Hendrik. He is already four yeras old and was approved after a successful show season.Livester is the product of Janne's and Hendrik's schoolmasters from 1.00 m to 1.40 m, Lordanos and Capriati.
The last and biggest family picture of the evening was displayed all around Lady Heida II. Her daughters Cadora, successful in Grand Prix, and Lady Cadora, winning mare of OS 2014, entered before their brother Cador, VTV-stallion of the year, the indoor arena (all by Catoki). Lady Heida II's son from 2013 was approved in Vechta this year: Diamand de Landor by Diamant de Semilly will also be available for our breeders in 2016.
Not only the young stallions have been presented: Casiro (by Cassini I) and his son Casirus (halfbrother of Casino Berlin) showed themselves off as well as Clintissimo Z (by Clinton I) and Casalido (by Casall).
The musician Jan Ahlers cared for the special atmosphere between the presentation of the horses. He animated the guests with his accordion to sing along and impressed with solo performances.
