Dam: Simone by Sandro Hit
2016 Black Oldenburg GOV Colt
Oldenburg Foal of Distinction & Stallion Prospect
Born April 29, 2016 via embryo transfer
This stellar colt will get you noticed! He is uphill, already sits very well and has an awesome walk and canter. He has tremendous elevation through the front, and flexes his hocks and sits with every stride at trot and canter. His overstep is incredible, more than half a stride over the front hoof prints with every step. He is very expressive, already showing reach and freedom in the front. With his natural talent and presence he has FEI and international quality. He is black or possibly dark brown, and should mature 16.1-16.2.
His pedigree is impeccable. He is by Franklin (Ampere/Ferro) out of our mare Simone (Sandro Hit/Florestan/Donnerhall), and is one of the best foals we have produced to date. Born April 29, 2016 via embryo transfer, and shown with his surrogate mare.
Franklin is an extremely interesting champion stallion by the popular and internationally recognized Ampère. Franklin won both the 2013 KWPN licensing and 50 Day 2013 KWPN performance test. In the performance test, he scored 9.5's for his canter and self carriage, and 9.0's for suppleness, rideability and dressage potential.
He then went on to win the 5 yr. old championship at the 2015 KWPN national stallion show in s'Hertogenbosch under Spanish rider Severo Jurardo Lopez. He was rewarded a 9.5 for his trot, 8.0 for walk, and 8.5's for canter, rideability and general impression.
Ampère had a resounding eight approved sons in 2014 in Holland, Westfalen and Holstein. Ampère was champion stallion at the 2008 KWPN licensing and later won his stallion test with scores of 8.0 for walk, 9.0 for trot, 9.5 for canter and 9.0 for rideability.
Ampère's sire, Rousseau, won silver at the 2003 world championships for young horses in Verden and has been able to present the champion stallion in Holland three times in a row.
Franklin's dam line includes two of Holland's major breeding magnates, Ferro and Flemmingh.
Dam Simone is a magnificent mare with correct and expressive gaits and excellent conformation. She descends from three generations of States Premium Mares on her dam’s side.
She was the Champion Filly of the 2011 North American Oldenburg GOV Inspection Tour, 2013 USDF All Breeds Champion 2 YO Filly, 2012 USDF All Breeds Reserve Champion Yearling Filly, 2012 USDF West Coast Breeders Reserve Champion Filly, and twice in the top ten USDF HOY Fillies, and twice CDS Champion Mare/Filly, receiving scores up to 85%.
Her dam, Floradonna is an Elite mare by Florestan out of a Donnerhall mare.
