Filly Etoulon VDL x Indoctro x Corrado I born at Eickenrode
Eline H (Indoctro x Corrado I) has given birth to a beautiful filly by Etoulon VDL on April the 6th. This chestnut foal was given the name Nausikaa Eickenrode, named after an important figure in the Homer's Odyssey. After being shipwrecked he is discovered by Nausikaä, a daughter of the king and she ensures a warm reception. The passage where Odysseus expresses his wonderment about her beauty, is one of the best known parts in the Odyssey.
Our mare Heartbeat Z (Heartbreaker x Acord II) gave birth to a foal by Kannan. A beautiful, big and lively chestnut mare. She received the name Nobilita Eickenrode, the imperative of the verb nobilitare which means to make famous, improve or ennoble. It finds its basis in the word 'Nobilitas', a political elite class in the Roman republic and an honorary title for families whose ancestors fulfilled high positions. A suitable name given the renown sire and grandsire of this foal.
Imnotafraid Fortuna (s.Dallas VDL) is the eldest offspring of our mare Debutante Fortuna (s.Vingino). This dam line had produced numerous (inter)national sports horses and this colt seems to possess all the qualities to follow in their footsteps. Jennifer Kuehnle and the 4-year-old Imnotafraid Fortuna were crowned the Irish Breeders Classic Champion at Barnadown Showjumping on Sunday afternoon. The stallion jumped three clear rounds during the show and in Sunday's judged section he was awarded the top position by the judges Greg Broderick and Marion Hughes. Congratulations to the team!

Wij proberen met behulp van kwaliteitsvolle merries uit sterke moederlijnen, qua sportprestaties en exterieur en door gebruik te maken van de juiste hengsten, een bovengemiddeld springpaard te fokken. Hierbij vinden wij naast de potentie voor de hogere springsport ook het behoud van een goed exterieur, een goed karakter en de rijdbaarheid zeer belangrijk. Het fokken en opfokken van veulens is een hobby waar wij als familie veel plezier aan beleven .
Ieder jaar verkopen wij veulens met interessante bloedlijnen en fokken daarnaast soms enkele veulens op om later als toekomstig sportpaard te verkopen.
Wij wonen in de Gelderse Vallei in Kootwijkerbroek gelegen tussen Amersfoort en Apeldoorn nabij Voorthuizen en Barneveld op een kwartier rijden van het KWPN en KNHS centrum te Ermelo.
