For the coming season, De Wiemselbach in Oud Ootmarsum has a new acquisition available for breeding. Last month the four-years-old Balou du Rouet offspring Lord of Farming HS was approved for the Dutch KWPN studbook and he will strengthen the interesting stallion collection at the Horn family’s company.
Last August, Lord of Farming HS (Balou du Rouet x Clinton) jumped into the spotlight under the name Ladykiller during the Dutch championships for four-year-olds. Ridden by Zoï Snels, the impressive stallion owned by Jan Schuttert, received the highest marks in the semifinals and finished fourth as the best stallion in the final.
Jumping and riding ability
The promising stallion was bred by Gebroeders Bosch from Luttenberg and earned an invitation to participate in the stallion performance test of the KWPN studbook. “Lord of Farming HS already showed his great qualities during the championship and made an impression in the performance test last month. Besides a lot of jumping talent, he also has very good conformation, a good way of moving and he originates from a proven damline, from which several international showjumpers have already been bred”, says Daan Horn, who is pleased to offer Lord of Farming HS to the breeders next year.
In the performance test Lord of Farming HS not only scored well as a showjumper but he also received high marks for his excellent attitude and rideability. In total he scored 81.5 points. “These qualities are incredibly valuable for a good breeding stallion. Lord of Farming HS is very eager to work, shows a lot of talent and jumps with a lot of scope. This means that expectations are high for both sport and breeding”, concludes Daan Horn. Jan Schuttert’s stallion will become part of an interesting string of promising young stallions at De Wiemselbach, such as Kensington (s.Cornet Obolensky), Can't Touch This (s.Casall), Innovation (s.Van Gogh) and Donthargos (s.Don Diarado).
