The black debutant
The new discovery of the 2015 Oldenburg Stallion Days: strong in type, large-framed and with extraordinary movement. His walk and canter also fulfill the highest demands. In 2011, his sire, Charmeur, was the most popular stallion of the Netherlands. In 2012, he won the Pavo-Cup final, was placed at the World Young Dressage Horse Championships in Verden and is now successful up to Intermédiaire I. In 2009, his dam Sweetie W produced the Reserve-Champion of the KWPN licensing in s’Hertogenbosch, Beau (by Lingh). His dam’s sire Ferro/Coby van Baalen/NED can be seen as one of the most successful dressage stallions in sport of all time, having won the Silver Medal at the Olympic Games, as well as World Equestrian Games and European Championships. Havidoff, successful up to Grand Prix, and himself descending from the Grand Prix stallion, Clavecimbel, follows in the third generation. Charming Ferro is closely inbred to the superb sires Farn and Ulft, further enriching this Dutch Warmblood’s outstanding bloodlines.
Many of his offspring are and were successful at Grand Prix level, which also applies to the Trakehner Doruto in the following generation, who sired in the Netherlands and produced several Olympic horses there, for example Ideaal/Jo Hinnemann who is well-known in Germany. Charming Ferro represents the Dutch dam line 029, which produced, among others, the licensed stallions Elton John (private owned Rhld.) and the epochal-significant Sion (private owned Oldbg.) as well as the internationally successful dressage horse Nadine/Hans-Peter Minderhoud (NED).
