Broodmares - the foundation of a breeding program. We were very fortunate when starting out to obtain the lovely Danish mare (Blue Hors) KIBIS  (Fabriano x Kronnenkranich) at the end of her FEI career, followed 2 years later by NICOLETTE (Diamante x Herststurm), also Danish. These two mares have given us a filly each to carry on their bloodlines, and both have been successful in USDFBC classes. Anyway, let me present all the current 'ladies of Southernwood Farm'.



 

Zild is a real treasure! By the legendary Gribaldi, out of a Firfod mare by Schwadronneur, Sire of the year 2000 in Denmark.  She carries only elite mare bloodlines, and both sire and damsire were highly respected stallions who produced many Grand Prix horses and licensed stallions. Pictured are two previous offspring by (1) Herluf Firfod and (2)  Anzvar Firfod. Here is a link to her foal by Sunny Boy  youtube.com/watch?v=dtvdnp-EQc0.  Her daughter has been retained in Denmark by Stutteri Firfod.

GRIBALDI

Gribaldi was the 1995 champion of the stallion selections and 1996 champion of his stallion performance test and has been proclaimed a Keur stallion

Duchess is a tall leggy mare with truly astonishingly ground covering gaits. By Don Romantic, DWB Stallion of the Year 2010, out of a mare by Painters Row, a TB stallion who was used as a refining stallion in Holland for several years. She is a very good mother, producing foals with size, movement and great temperaments.

DOROTHEE  DE KOONING (DONNERHALL) X ALABASTER    WESTPHALEN. app AHS

Dorothee is a smaller mare with big paces and quite a jump as well, as you would expect from her bloodlines. She is very intelligent, and her foals always have super minds and well behaved personalities. Her sire De Kooning was a notable jumper, and on the dam side is Cor de la Bryere. Donnerhall is a legend in dressage breeding, so she really does produce beautiful, smaller types that are dual purpose rides.

SOUTHERN BELLE SWF  SOPRANO (SANDRO HIT) X KIBIS (FABRIANO) Danish Warmblood

Belle is our first home bred mare to become a broodmare. Her dam Kibis competed successfully through I2 in Florida, and was retired at 18 when she came to us for breeding. Unfortunately, she proved unable to carry a foal herself, but produced 2 stunning fillies by ET in her first year here - and that was it! She now spends her days patiently teaching advancing riders the higher level work. Belle showed very successfully in sport horse classes, winning national awards. Soprano, a stunning homozygous black stallion also from Blue Hors, has produced many successful dressage horses in Europe and the UK.
