Pr.St. Machita has her first foal and she is amazing! We have named her Mirella which means " one who is greatly admired" and we know she will be!

This exquisite filly by the legendary Rohdiamant is everything we could have hoped for and more. She is tall and strong with a most beautiful head. She is bold and inquisitive and loves attention. Her movement is phenomenal as you would expect from this World Class combination of genes! Awarded the coveted Oldenburg Premium Award!

Congratulations to Scott and Annette on the purchase of Mirella at just 6 days old, here is what they said after meeting Mirella - " We are both so excited by the charisma, charm and potential of this filly and of course, that special genetic gold dust!" We wish you a very long and happy future together and can't wait to hear how you get on.


August 2011

Dam - Pr. St. Machita
Machita is an impressive, athletic mare from one of the best mare families in Germany. She comes from 3 generations of State Premium and Elite mares and is a Premium and performance tested mare herself. She thrills with her powerful uphill movement and striking looks and she has the sweetest character we have ever known! Machita was bred by the famous Oldenburg breeder Georg Sieverding. His phenomenal mare family has produced more Champions and Premium mares than any other in Modern Oldenburg History. They produced not only the 2007 Oldenburg Licensing Champion Sieger Hit, but also the 2008 Oldenburg Licensing Champion Fürstenball (who sold as a foal for 110,000 euros as a foal!) and in 2009 the second Reserve Champion Hot Spot owned by Blue Hors stud as well as 2 other graded stallions! In 2010 he also bred the Reserve Champion by Florencio as well a another stallion by Sir Donnerhall that shares the same grand mother as Machita. To breed a licensed stallion is a huge achievement but to breed one Champion after another is truly extraordinary. And it is not only the colts who do so well from this family, there are countless Premium mares, many of whom are also Elite and go onto produce Premium daughters.

Pr. St. Machita's grand dam, St.Pr.El Mon Dieu has descended from a dam line of immense success. No less than 10 State Premium mares have been produced from great grandmother Mon Amour. Amongst these is Maradonna ( by Donnerhall ) who was the highest placed 4yo in the German mare Championships, and is the mother of the amazing Fürstenball!

Machita's sire Samarant was Hanoverian Reserve Champion at the World Young Horse Championships in Verden and winner of the local championships for Young Horses in Nienburg as well as successful finalist at the German Championships for Young Horses in Warendorf. Attractive, dynamic Sandro Hit son with three excellent gaits, the quality of which were confirmed at his stallion performance test where he was awarded top scores. His desirable dam, Bellvue, by Brentano II is a beautiful type, one of the most prominent state premium mares from the Hanoverian breed. She has won her class at the Mare Show four times in a row. This model pedigree is excellently completed by the English thoroughbred lineage with the thoroughbred “Andrang xx”. The thoroughbred mare, Wise Girl xx, produced the national stud stallion “Wild Life” by Warkant. Samarant is a brilliant combination of the reliable Sandro Hit bloodline and Bellvue’s noble, producer-proven mare lineage.

Dam Sire Florestan
Florestan sports a sire line of world importance, that of Furioso II. Florestan has produced over 50 stallion sons and over 40 State Premium mares. Florestan is recognized within the breed as a sire who can be relied upon for superior heritability. He produces outstanding basic paces, a beautiful head and lovely temperament. Florestan I has a superb dressage breeding index of 166. He was the Champion of the 1988 Rhineland approval.  His dam, Raute, is a proven show mare in the Rhineland area.  At the age of 3 she was Champion mare of her age group.  In 1983 she won her class at the German Mare show in Verden, and in 1986 she was Champion junior mare at the federal show in Aix-la-Chapelle.
