" Mirastretta;" April 12th 2008, Palomino Warmblood Filly
This is a really pretty filly and is going to be a VERY tall "Golden Girl".
The first palomino out of this mare and only the second palomino filly that Mirabeau has given us.
She is very well put together with nice movement and is going to be one magnificent mare that I
look forward to seeing mature.
She is out of Princess Vera (a 16.2h Pinto Dutch Warmblood) who was imported
from Holland and approved
with the Dutch Warmblood (KWPN).
This filly's dam, Princess Vera, has impeccable bloodlines. Her sire is the legendary
"Samber" who received a rare 10 for temperament and trainability
in Holland. Samber competed very successfully through Grand Prix Dressage and at the Z levels jumpers.
Samber has been in the top 15 for producing dressage horses in Holland (out of over 400 stallions)
and in the top 100 for producing jumpers. Zorba, is a ster, preferent, prestantie mare which are some
of the highest ratings a Dutch mare can have.
Her grand sire, Koopman, was born in 1969 and is 1/2 Gelderlander. He was by the great Miller's Grey xx
and out of a full Sgldt dam, Gondina ster (Gondina ster - Worsina - Jorsina Kroon Kern Pref).
Koopman was 3rd out of 17 in his stallion test in 1972. His scores were: Dressage - 8.86 /
Freejumping - 9.5 / Show jumping - 9 / Character - 9 / General impression - 8.5. He was given a 'A' rating.
