This horse belongs to my friend and client Danielle, www.cornbreadandchickens.com and since I know a lot of horsey folks are friends of mine on Facebook and Twitter, as well as here on WordPress I decided to post her blog entry here. This is a horse I trim and she’s a doll. Very well mannered, etc. Gains weight on air!
Rheinland Pfalz-saar x Westfalen broodmare for sale
May 19, 2010 by Danielle
8 year old dark bay Rheinland Pfalz-saar x Westfalen broodmare for sale in Concord, VA. Not registered, but her breeding certificate is included if you want to have her inspected for the Rheinland Pfalz-saar studbook.
Sired by Volter Win (reg. Rheinland Pfalz-saar), a Wintry Oak son (Denny Emerson’s former Advanced event horse) out of Volterra by Volturno (one of Europe’s leading Oldenburg 3-day event sires in the late 1980s). Volterra was short listed for the 1996 US Olympic Event Team.
Out of a Westfalen mare, Grand Finale, who was out of a mare sired by Renoir, a half brother to Rembrandt (Nicole Uphoff’s former dressage horse). Grand Finale was sired by Galaxy, by Guarantor a Hanoverian stud.
“pH” was injured during turnout as a 5 year old, and never fully broke to ride. 90% sound, some lingering lameness from injury – becomes apparent when exercised consistently.
Excellent temperament, very sweet and expressive. Great conformation. Powerful, expressive gaits.
VERY easy keeper. Low maintenance. Barefoot. Current on vaccines and Coggins.
Offered for sale as broodmare or companion horse. Price negotiable to the right home.
This mare is very special to me as I’ve known her since she was a weanling. I got her to breed to for a sport horse. “pH” is offered for sale because I have decided to focus on endurance and not on sport horse events.
