Baby "Jura" 3 weeks old

(Furst Heinrich - Rubinstein)

She is quite the little "poser" for photos ... not interested much in her suspended trot. I only see that when there is no camera around ...isn't that they way??
So correct in her legs and love that topline.

"Hear Me Sing" (Voice - Jazz - Matador II - Rubinstein) catching up on the growing fillies

Hear Me Sing, 2 years old
Tamarinde , Singer's Mom
 Well, here is one of my best - who has recently turned two.
"Hear Me Sing" is by the Gran Prix stallion Glock's Voice (DeNiro - Rohdiamant - Doruto - Amor), who is ridden by Edward Gal. 
Her dam is the super producing mare, "Tamarinde" (Jazz - Matador II - Rubinstein - Welt As)

Tamarinde's offspring excel in the competition ring; Her 4 y.o. son "Floretienne" by Florestan won the USDF National Championsihps at Training Level last year. Her other 4 y.o. son "Quantum Jazz" by Quaterback was 6th in the Young Horse Championships in 2013. Her now 4 y.o. son "Florante" by Florestan is gearing for the YHC with high scores already placing him in the top of the candidates for 2014.

My 40th foal crop is complete! And her name is "Jura" (Totilas - Furst Heinrich - Rubinstein)

So proud to show you the culmination of 40 years of breeding.

My 40th year of welcoming new foals, and the 31st with Antonio Lopez!

Here is Jura at 12 hours today (or 331 days!). I thought her Mama was black, but the black satin coat of Jura is the blackest of blacks!

 My homebred mare "Finale"(Furst Heinrich - Rubinstein - Herbststurm  - Pregel)  has proven again what a special producer she is. She was dam to the spectacular
"Templar" by Temptation last year.

Stemming from my foundation Trakehner mare, "Helena" (1975),  the Trakehner blood nicked well on Totilas sire line. (One of my former stallions was "Falke", who figures into the line of Gribaldi)

Finale waited for Aunt Cookie to come back home so she could photo document this Jura!

 Photo at left is Jura at 3 days; above is Jura at 12 hours

Some nice Kannan babies dropping this season again.

KANNAN, "The" Man of the year

KANNAN filly out of a Corrado I mare. 

Lucky Terry Bucher with this one as well!

Flipper d'Elle babies 2014

Bright and  beautiful FLIPPER foals! You can count on him to make athletic and very pretty types. These are bred and owned by Terry Bucher, Equine Trading Co, in California

The inimitable FLIPPER 'd'ELLE !
Don't forget the excellent blood of the French bred stallion in your jumper breeding program. He adds catlike agility, fine character and loads of talent. Great with "old fashioned" and heavy mares. Outstanding quality frozen semen in stock at $950 per dose.
