Just talked to trainer. When she’s in FL for two weeks I get to work her current projects - Dahlia (Ferro x Idocus), Cori (Idocus x Jazz) and Jack (Vinca x Jazz). So super excited. Dahlia has always been ‘my’ horse - I broke her before leaving for KYB and had plans to take her to KYB; now trainer has her solidly at First level with plans to show higher next summer. Cori will be doing Third this summer, and he’s an absolutely phenomenal mover; he has the spark of Jazz, yet the front end of Idocus and the rideability which Idocus puts on them. Jack will do 4 YO classes next year, and is the coolest piece of horse I’ve had the chance to ride, he’s one I broke this past year; his movement is ‘holy shit’ movement - even when he’s cooling off on the lunge his walk has at least two steps overtrack. His hind leg is phenomenal. Also I’ll be lunging the stallion, Vinca (Metall x Idocus)! He’s a ham.
Also I love seeing how the different stallions and mares do what to their progeny. I’ve always been big into bloodlines - partially why I work for a KWPN breeder! Dahlia & Vinca are both out of Perennial (Idocus x Vertex xx). Cori and Jack are both out of Technique (Jazz x Zeoliet). And then of course Jack is by Vinca. YAY BLOODLINES!
Sorry. I just had to talk about this to someone.
Continue with your day.
