At last! Thursday night at 03.30 Wake Up came into the world. Wake Up is by Benetton Dream and our beautiful bronze medal mare Watch Me by Weltjunge / Andiamo. Refined, long legged and very dark bay. He had a difficult first 24 hours and we were not sure that we were to keep him, but luckily he made it and now he is a VERY quick colt with lots of energy and ready to face the big world. Here you some photos from the first days:
We can hardly get enough of our wonderful colt by Zorro Son - so here are some extra new photos:
Take off for the breeding season! The foals are on their way and the driving with mares in heat has started. Thursday night we drove Li-Z down to the vet for insemination. Since she lost the foal she is to be exemined before insemination just to make sure that everything is ok. Fortunately, she is fine and she has now been inseminated with the stallion Stevie Wonder. We do not very often use the young stallions, but at this year's stallion licensing in Herning we fell in love with the very good looking and very well moving Hannoverian stallion Stevie Wonder by Steding / White Star / Einblick. For years we have said that if we were to use the Sandro Hit blood, it should probably be Stedinger or one of his sons - and then, there he was all of a sudden in Herning!
This weekend we had visitors; first our very good friends Jan & Karina and their two daoughters Helene and Mathilde. Mathilde is a very busy photographer and we think she is doing pretty well. See for yourselves! Saturday evening we had a visit from Margit Ørum and Mette Knudsen as Margit was in Solroed at a big dressage competition. Of course they just had to come and see our beautiful Zorro Son. They were thrilled and the visit enden with a bunch of photoes of which you can see some of them below. He most be the most pictured foal in Denmark
Here you see some of Mathilde's pictures:

After 11 days of Easter holiday, having watched Appetizer for almost every second, she finally decided to bring her foal into the world. At 00:30 the alarm went off and at 01:20 a handsome black colt by Zorro Son was born! Mare and foal are well and we look forward to taking them out later today.
Pictures will be coming soon!
