New Fillies from the U.S.
Since end of February our new fillies from the USA are here in Flieden:
Anastasia de La Tierra, d.o.b. April 22, 2010, bay
Sire: Aprendiz de Colores, Dam: Chunga de La Luisa
Anastasia’s bloodlines carry Capuchine, Resorte Cuarto and Classico on her Sire’s side and Patrimonio del Ocho and Amadeus on her Dam’s side.
Anastasia is in foal to Bribon de San Isidro and we are expecting her foal in October 2015.
Bandolera del Conde, d.o.b. March 25, 2011, Dun
Sire: Aprendiz de Colores, Dam: Prenda de Conde
Bandolera’s Sire is the same as Anastasia’s. Her Dam, Prenda del Conde, is a daughter of Capitan de La Vitrina.
Bandolera is in foal to El Rey de Isla and will probably be due to foal in September 2015.
Both fillies and their foals shall enrich our breeding program. If seriously interested, they can also be considered for purchase.
Beginning of June we got our second Coton Puppy: "Fleurie von den Allgäuer Gipfelstürmern", a half-sister of Bisou. Fleurie is full of energy and makes us laugh more than once a day. Pictures of Bisou and Fleurie can be seen here. Christiane Slawik, a well-known professional photographer, shot the beautiful pictures during the Fiesta 2012.
From June 29 to July 1, 2012 the Paso Fino Fiesta took place at the Sternberghof. There were many very nice classes. We took Brujula, Amistad and Marquesa with us. Even though it was extremely hot during the first days and unbelievably wet on Sunday, we had a lot of fun and our horses presented themselves very satisfying. Here are the results:
Amistad (shown by Britta):
Performance 7th and Performance Amateur 2nd place, Classic Fino 2nd place
Brujula (shown by Britta):
Dressage Freestyle 3rd place, Pleasure and Pleasure Amateur both 1st place
Marquesa (shown by Johanna Paul):
Performance 4th and Performance Amateur 3rd place
Thanks to Johanna for a really nice presentation of Marquesa!
Of course we are very proud of the presentation of our horses and really enjoy them a lot.
La Mamba Negra was bred to Eldorado de Ojos Azules mid of June. So we are expecting the fourth foal of Mamba mid of May 2013. We are excited to see the result after Mamba up to now brought us three black fillies.
Our Performance mare Luna Llena found a new home. We are happy that her new owner, Carolina Rathgens (Ganzheitliche Pferdepension Áfangi), offers her such a loving and competent home. Carolina has worked with gaited horses for many years and now fell in love with the Paso Fino. We wish Carolina a lot of fun with Luna!

Again we took three of our horses to the Swiss Paso Fino Classics on August 13 and 14, 2011. The show took place at the beautiful Swiss Paso Fino Farm of Claudia and Daniel Greb in Switzerland.
With best weather, good atmosphere and very good classes we reached following placements:

Amistad del Seminole: 1st place Performance Amateur Adult, ridden by Britta Mülle, 2nd place Equitation Adult, ridden by Claudia Neuhoff and 1st place Performance Adult, ridden by Stanley Paul.

We are very proud of our horses and the riders!
