Last weekend our judges Gerrit Stelwagen and Simon Hoeksma were in Norway to feast their eyes. The association there has a new chairwoman, Jeanette Lid-Lindahl and we wish her every success in this new position!
Judging took place at two locations where the filly Mystique van Soma stood out because of her upward way of trotting with a very strong hind leg. Like some other foals she had the later approved St. Romancier KLV as sire. This stallion passes on foals with three correct basic gaits, a lot of length and hardness in the legs, which could perhaps be slightly more angulated in the hindleg. The stallion himself is black with four white legs, 1.71 m. and has a lot of hardness and length in the legs. In addition, he has an easy form of movement and a remarkably good character.
The stallion Joey van MK is a long-lined, long-legged stallion with a lot of muscling in the topline and a well-shaped croup. In addition, it has a nice way of moving.
Dirk van Driene had been able to enjoy his freedom for eight years and had only been in training for three months. Nevertheless, he showed himself well, but not optimally because of this. He did get an 8.5 for his way of trotting and for his breed type.
The stallion Oompa Loompa is a horse with a beautiful topline, a lot of withers and a nice long croup. In the movement he could be a little more convincing.
