She is by the 6 year old Young Dressage horse World Champion Westpoint (Jazz x Michelangelo) out of our imported KWPN Dutch Keur Elite mare Valanta (Goodtimes x Houston) that we just imported.  This filly has phenomenal movement and just WOWs you with the nice articulation of the joints and hind leg just like her dam.  She is sweet, curious and learns quick.  I love her expressive face.  She is going to be a lot of fun and really going to be special in the show ring or the breeding for the future.  For someone who wants a rare find and the best of the best in a filly.  $25,000 firm.

KWPN-NA Annual Meeting
It was a fantastic meeting again this year with the KWPN-NA in Wellington, FL.  Not only did I learn a lot among with my friends and peers but I was awarded KWPN-NA Member of the Year and received a huge inscribed bowl as an award.  Thank you everyone for such an honor!
Laura Kraut & Course Designer..What is his name? Course Designer..What is his name?
Course Designer..What is his name?

I especially liked walking the Grand Prix course with Laura Kraut.  It was great to hear her concerns and approaches to such a difficult course and then meeting the course designer at the end.  OK, don't ask me his name as I forgot.  :-(  Too much sun I guess!

It was also very nice to hear comments on the young horses and the Grand Prix jumpers from breeder and sales agent Paul Hendrix.  He was very familiar with many of the horses personally and knowledgeable on their jumping abilities. 

The lectures were really good.  Arie Hamoen, the lead stallion inspector from Holland showed us videos and commented on the selection of the top 10 dressage and jumping stallions in the stallion show this year.  It was great insight and very helpful to understand the stallion selections in Holland.  I especially like that we are getting infused with new possibilities for jumping blood with stallions like Oscar and his son Uphill who decend from jumping lines, just like Flemmingh and Ferro did. 

Irene Wolfs from the KWPN presented a great lecture on what the KWPN is doing to promote and expand the KWPN horses around the world, including USA!  We met Irene last year at the KWPN-NA meeting and super that the KWPN sends her here to help us look at promotional ideas for here in America too.

It was interesting to here from our inspector Bart Henstra about the program that they are working on in Holland to rate temperament in the KWPN horses.  They are developing the idea to look at different categories of temperament similar to our linear scoring.  It will take several years to get it going and collect enough data before they can publish but will be interesting when it comes out. 

We visited quite a few places including Michael Barisone and his wife Vera who demonstrating some really big moving KWPN bloodlines.  You can see the passion he has for his horses.  It was topped off the visit with a demonstration of Liz Austin on Olivier.

A special treat was to see the first stallion to be approved full KWPN here in America, the imported Westfalen Iron Spring stallion Florianus.  Florianus is already approved Westfalen and competed to Grand Prix, so just needed to do his 5 day performance test.  The full report is on the KWPN-NA website.
Betty Beyers & Valanta MG (Indoctro x Acord II)
Valante MG (Indoctro x Acord II)

It was also really nice to be able to see Betty Beyers and the horse we bred Valante MG (Indoctro x Acord II).  We just caught them in time.  They were leaving the next day to go home from FL.

Johan Knaap was also there from the KWPN to fill us all in on the KWPN direction and answer questions we all had during the meeting, which was very helpful.  It is nice all these KWPN people came from Holland and were so accessible to our questions.

There was so much more that we saw.  Really worth the trip for the education, but enjoyed having my sister Laura with me and Makenzi and our evenings out with everyone for some much needed fun, food and comradery.  Plan to attend the meeting next year at DG Bar in Florida and then in 2012 it will be in Holland!   
Fancy (Farrington x Patrick)
Congrats to Anne Hayes on her new Farrington filly out of her mare Magical by Patrick.  Anne reports "Mom and baby are doing well and baby is so much like her mom in personality...very sweet and loving!  I know she is going to have the talent and athleticism of her dad...Farrington and the work ethic and trainability of both her parents!" She has another Farrington foal due next month so lots of pictures to come soon.

KWPN-NA Annual Meeting and Westpoint Filly Arrives
March 9, 2010
Falanta MG (Westpoint x Goodtimes x Houston) filly arrives!
Falanta MG (Westpoint x Goodtimes x Houston)This morning we had a fabulously too cute Black/Bay filly born with 2 hind small socks and a few hair for a star. Falanta MG is by the 6 year old Young Dressage horse World Champion Westpoint (Jazz x Michelangelo) out of our Keur Elite mare Valanta (Goodtimes x Houston) that we just imported. Falanta MG is really strong and foaling went very well and fast.  She stood within 15 minutes and I went out of the stall to get some twine to tie up the placenta and heard slurping of milk.  She has lots of energy and is just ready to go! More pictures coming soon!  Cant wait to see her move! Congrats to both Nancy Steger and Krys Levine Schrom who guessed what she was going to be. They guessed she would be born on 3/6; filly; 2 hind socks and small star on our special Facebook game.  They didn't have the date right but had the coloring and filly right.  They get a free KWPN hat!  Link up to us on Facebook and keep up with the most recent news on foals and I'll try to run more contests for our 6 other foals coming this year.  It was really fun!
KWPN-NA Annual Meeting March 12-14, 2010
Valante MG (Indoctro x Accord II)Makenzi Wendel, my sister Laura Schwartze and I are off to the KWPN-NA Annual meeting in Florida on Thursday morning.  I am really looking forward to an excellent agenda. Hope to see you all there.  I am excited to get to visit Betty Beyers and her horse Valante MG (Indoctro x Accord II) and see how he is jumping these days.  Always a thrill for a breeder when the horses we breed are so successful.  We are very proud of them both.  :-) 

Thanks for the support for me and nominating me for KWPN-NA member of the year.  Not sure I'll win, but really thrilled and surprised at the nomination.  What an honor.

Makenzi rides KWPN stallion Navarone
Navarone (Jus de Pomme x Armstrong) jumping   with MakenziWe decided with the change of riders, Makenzi's desire for jumping and our stallion Navarone (Jus de Pomme x Armstrong) recovered now from his injury last October that this is a great time to put Navarone back in jumping. He has proved he can do the Grand Prix dressage and will be fun to have him show off his talents in the jumper ring again.  Already Navarone is producing many Grand Prix jumpers and Eventers.  He will be a good teacher for Makenzi to move up the jumping levels.

Navarone and Makenzi jumping for the first time together Feb 13, 2010 with a small exercise lesson with Gretchen Anderson.  This was the first time jumping for Navarone in 6 years!  He LOVED it and was very excited.  Makenzi said he was a lot of fun and very quick.  She is going to enjoy being on a horse that already knows his job.  Gretchen enjoys working with Makenzi and we with Gretchen.  It will be a lot of fun for jumping in 2010  Check out more pictures of Navarone jumping on his web page.

Makenzi rides Hanoverian stallion SchroederSchroeder (Sandro Hit x Escudo I)
Makenzi is also riding our stallion Schroeder (Sandro Hit x Escudo I) and training with Grand Prix riders/trainers Jane Karol and Cindi Wylie.  Kathy Connelly is also looking forward to working with Makenzi and Schroeder when she is back in the spring.  Makenzi and Schroeder are working hard to do the 6 year old tests this year.  Check out more pictures of Makenzi and Schroeder riding on his web page.  Does he have a good hind leg and can sit or what? 

Along with the stallions, Makenzi is also working with the breaking and training of the young horses at Majestic Gaits.  She has been working with our mare Zakarla (Navarone x Telstar) and doing a great job.  She just started trotting her on her own this past week.  It wont be long!
Tell us your Frozen Orders/Plans
Please let me know who you are planning or thinking of breeding to this year, so we can stock plenty of the stallion you desire.  Email Kathy with any details.  Thanks!

If you plan to buy 007 (Rubenstein x Doruto) frozen this year.  Please contact me.  I am still waiting for the 2010 price and availability and should know soon.  But, we will need to precoordinate paying for this stallion and getting it shipped with our order to come soon.

Enzo & Ella
Congrats to Linda Mascola who purchased both Enzo (Schroeder), and Ella (Farrington) from Jennifer Verhulst, Farley Farms, Canada. 

Linda reported "I have had both Enzo and Ella for about a month now.  Both Enzo and Ella are doing extremely well. 

Enzo (Schroeder) is the most correct foal I have ever seen.  He is a very dark bay; almost black, and what a sweet nature.  I love him so much.  He just turned 6 months old on the 25th of December.

Ella (Farrington) has legs that go on forever, and is a bright chestnut color, absolutely beautiful, and incredibly correct.  She has the most feminine filly look that no one would ever mistake her for a colt.  I absolutely adore her."
Wittinger Champion of KWPN Stallion Competition
Wittinger (Indoctro x Nimmerdor)
