Special D represents proven combination of Olympic Ferro crossed with G Ramiro Z, which produced his sire Métall. Special D is supported on the dam’s side by solid, proven bloodlines with quality movements, such as Zandigo, Farn, Doruto and Uron. Grandam Aafke (keur preferent), produced in combination with Ferro the Grand Prix stallion Joeris, who is approved in France, a Light Tour horse in the USA and the UTV mare Gloriosa, a full sister of Haafke. Special D’s dam produced a stallion for the third inspection in the preceeding year his inspection.
Special D is an honest, reliable stallion. He very willing to work with a good attitude. The walk is spacious, rectangular and active, with a good usage of his body. Special D’s trot is very tactful and spacious, with super self-carriage, a lot of elevation and a good collection. His canter is extremely spacious and scopey with excellent self-carriage. He is a very talented as a dressage horse and gives his rider a very good feeling.
The offspring of Special D perform remarkably well in Dressage and Hunter/Jumpers. Several offspring participated the final of the Pavo Cup as well as young horse finals in both the US and Europe. Special-D has several KWPN well-proven sons including Zanzibar and Andretti (winner of the stallion competition 2009/2010). He currently has several approved sons, who are ranked world-wide and have placed well in stallion approvals, Pavo Cup, and young horse competitions to Grand Prix.
Special D is very suitable for breeding of a modern dressage horse with power, charm and character. He is currently competing with great success at Intermediare I and ready to show Grand Prix.
PENDING KWPN-NA APPROVAL- A super young stallion born 2012 with tremendous character. His movement is powerful and graceful and reflects the extraordinary combination of Chippendale (Lord Leatherdale) and Dutch Dormello. Hamilton will be up for KWPN-NA approval in 2015 and competing in the 3yo classes. We are very excited to see how he develops!
Our 2014 colt by Padinus is sure to be a looker. We are hopeful that he will develop into a fine young stallion. He is the most calm, kind and brave foal we have ever experienced. Look out for him in the coming years!
