FIRST AMPERE - such a nice young horse!

His beautiful type, calm demeanor, excellent willingness to work, coupled with all that suppleness ... and that WALK! he has the makings of a very nice horse.

I have doses already in my tanks, so convinced am I in his qualities.

Precious new filly by Tailormade Temptation out of Cherokee Morning Breeze


"Hey! I just found my brakes!"
This bright filly immediately earned the name LIL DARLIN', and you can see why.These photos are at 3 days. She has wonderful substance to her legs, strong joints and very correct. I am very pleased with the pairing, albeit a bit unusual!

Her sire is the well bred KWPN stallion TEMPTATION (Tuschinski - Haarlem).
Her dam is a registered Kiger, being by my own CHEROKEE TWISTER and out of Kiger mare by the great Andalusian sire, GAUCHO III.

 The DNA of the Kiger horses clusters just below the Iberian breeds (Andalusian and Lusitano). So it was no big stretch to add Andalusian blood to increase size, substance and freedom of movement. Then, when I added my own Twister (Himself a big Kiger at 16.1 hands), I got a powerful and good sized mare, with such movement that I just had to add some suppleness and.... Voila! A solid dressage prospect.

Fuerst Noble, colt by Fuerst Heinrich out of Dream Rubina at one month

Well, this is an interesting, powerful and correct colt with a deep and valuable pedigree.

These are classic German bloodlines for top dressage performance.

FUERST NOBLE is a direct son of the venerable stallion FUERST HEINRICH, who unfortunately was lost to the breeding community when he died an all too early death in 2007. His blood carries on through numerous licensed sons, most notable perhaps is FUERSTENBALL.

NOBLE'S dam, DREAM RUBINA ( Dream of Glory - Rubinstein - Herbststurm Tk - Pregel Tk) is a strong mare, who is known in the U.S. for her top quality son QREDIT   (by Quaterback) owned by Hilltop Farm and competing successfully under rider Michael Bragdell.
