Navarone Mare Top Score in Holland The Paardenkrant newspaper in Holland reported: "The 3 year old stermare Tedaldine from A.F. Brouwer from Ter Apelkanaal has received the highest score of the IBOP in Tolbert on 27th of November with 77 points. Tedaldine got a 7,5 for walk, trot and talent as a dressage horse. The canter got an 8. For the take off and the scope she got a 7,5 and for technique and for the talent bot an 8.  Tedaldine is a bay daughter of Navarone out of the elite mare Ledaldine. She has Democraat and the ster preferent Haldine (Mytens xx x Nimmerdor) as parents."  We've heard nothing but good things from the breeders and owners of Navarone offspring in Holland.  The oldest are now 4 and they are seeing how talented they are for jumping and dressage. We are very excited espeically after his first mare presented in America, Taloma by Navarone was star and provisional Keur at the keuring this year and 2nd in the nation and after seeing that his mares were in the national finals for jumping too.  He is proving to produce very good movers for jumping and dressage with super temperaments.  We couldn't be happier with how he is doing.

New VDL stallions available by Frozen Semen this year: Next order for frozen semen planned for March 2003.

Sheraton (Indoctro x Calypso II x Grannus)  This newly approved young stallion received 9 for elevation and 8.5 four times in his testing for canter, technique, power and jumping ability. He is one of the upcoming jumping stars.  Stud fee $800 for 3 doses, plust $250 import and fedex shipping (approx $150 round trip)

Silverstone (Champion du Lys x Carthago x Renomee Z)  Also a fantastic jumper, receiving a 9 for take off , 8.5 for technique and 9.5 for jumping ability.  Silverstone is the first licensed son of the world famous international show jumper Cahmpion du Lys and his dam is the Keur mare from the Holsteiner Stam 8763.  Stud fee $800 for 3 doses, plust $250 import and fedex shipping (approx $150 round trip)

Arkansas (Acobat II x Silvano x Hanassi xx).  This stallion is approved only with the ISH, Irish Sport Horse.  But, if you're looking to register a foal in that registry.  Arkansas was the champion for the 4-year-olds showjumpers in Ireland and also was in the finals as a 5-year-old.

Chin Chin (Constant x Farnese x Sorgenbrechter xx)  This famous International Olympic Grand Prix jumper was bought by VDL Stud in 2002.  This year we have his frozen semen available, but unfortunately the price is $3500 for 3 doses, plust $250 import and fedex shipping (approx $150 round trip).  Chin Chin is 25 years old and bred a LOT of mares in Holland, despite the high price.  How often to you get an opportunity to breed to a 2 time Olympic jumper and World Cup stallion?
