Please welcome GATSBY !

So fancy with his white stockings, here is GATSBY. He is by JAZZ out of DREAM RUBINA (Dream of Glory - Rubinstein)

Rubina has become my cornerstone mare since her dam Reina H died last summer. Dream Rubina has already produced the licensed son QREDIT by Quaterback, and looks like she has another stallion coming along in Australia - W.ELLINGTON by Wynton. (see post below)
This Jazz colt is larger than I expected, but has his dam's wonderful legs and a delightful friendly personality that shines already. GATSBY is shown here at 2 1/2 days of age.

Does anyone recognize THIS horse??

This is my homebred 2 year old colt. W. ELLINGTON by WYNTON out of DREAM RUBINA (Dream of Glory - Rubinstein) in his home in Australia!

Hasn't he grown nicely?

His dam is also dam of the licensed stallion QREDIT by Quaterback.
?Maybe she will have another licensed son?

All things must pass.......

The grand old stallion FOR PLEASURE has passed away peacefully in his field this morning in Germany.
He was turned out as usual, was having a good roll, but never got up.
The world of show jumping will never forget this strong stallion who has left his mark , not only through his own accomplishments, but also through the success of his offspring.
Another great one passes over the Rainbow Bridge.

Visiting with ROYAL CLASSIC

He is just stunningly beautiful.

Even these photos do not do him the justice he deserves. In person, he is so full of kind personality, fluid movement, solid, gentle energy. I am a huge admirer of this young stallion as well as of his venerable pedigree:
His sire, Royal Highness is by Regazzoni out of a Dream of Glory - Weltmeyer dam
His dam, First Lady is Florestan - Landadel - Calypso II

Here is a link to his homepage, with good information and updated regularly with new foal photos!
