December 7, 2007 - Vb.Pr.St. Winessa (De Niro/Furioso II/Inschallah) is finally home! Tired from her long journey from Germany and quarantine in Maryland. She's still a little thin but fortunately she's still pregnant with her Rohdiamant foal! Thank goodness! Now she'll be in quarantine at the Station for a month before being introduced to the rest of our herd! Since Sparkle has been sold, Rubi was missing her "red headed buddy" so it'll be interesting to see if Winessa and Rubi become fast friends!
November 14, 2007 - Vb.Pr.St. Winessa (De Niro/Furioso II/Inschallah) and her Stedinger colt, Sirocco, have safely arrived from Germany in NY and will be heading to Rigbie Farms, Maryland (quarantine) on 11/16/07. We're very excited that they're on U.S. soil and looking forward to Winessa (who is in foal to Rohdiamant) coming home to the Station! (Sorry, the colt is sold, CONGRATULATIONS, BECKY!)
September 7, 2007 - we took Chancellor WAS to his (AHHA) Holsteiner (merit foal) inspection and branding in Austin, Texas and he was just terrific!
August 27, 2007 - This was a very busy day ... we took 5 mares and 4 foals to the Hanoverian inspections in Richmond, Texas. A huge congrats to Rosoenna our imported Oldenburg mare for being the site champion non-Hanoverian mare at the inspection and our own TB mare, Miss Miller was the runner up. Only two non-Hanoverian mares were approved that day and we're proud to say they are both ours! A HUGE thank you goes to our good friends, Sue Steuer from Illinois and Sherry White of Graystone Farms in Ohio for flying out to give us a hand on this very busy day! ABC Horse Transportation was a huge help with moving the horses, taking care of them overnight and even helping us handle the mares and foals! Well done, Sue, Sherry, TJ and Johnny! Thanks so much ... a truly great team!
Not to be overlooked during this inspection, Salieri Rose was the champ filly (we are soooo glad that we rebred Rubi to Salieri, this is a truly SPECIAL filly) and all our boys did really, really well too ... we are very proud of each and every one of them!
August 13, 2007 - CONGRATULATIONS to Judy Weiss of Belly Acres in Flagstaff, Arizona on the birth of this adorable (will he be black like his sire?) colt who happens to be a full brother to our yearling, Serenah (Ser Gioveto [Sandro Hit]/Exlibris/Intervall) who has great movement, personality and 3 solid gaits. If you'd like to learn more about this colt, please contact Judy at email@example.com.
August 2, 2007 - CONGRATULATIONS to Nancy and Tim Connolly of Horse Power Farm in Vancouver, WA on the birth of a very feminine, beautiful, healthy Royal Prince filly with four white socks and a "headlight" for a star. If you would like to know more about the filly (who is also for sale), please email Nancy.
Note: (Aug 2007) The Oldenburg gelding, Deveroux (De Niro x Rohdiamant) was ridden beautifully by Dutch rider Miranda Rongen to the title of World Champion for the 6 Year Old Dressage Horses receiving 9.5's for submission and overall impression. The judges excitedly expressed, "This is what we want to see!" DEVEROUX WINS THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS!! [I knew it was worth leaving Winessa in Germany to breed to Rohdiamant ... another champion in the making!]
June 29, 2007 - Winessa's colt (Stedinger/De Niro/ Furioso II) was inspected, branded and rated Premium by the German Oldenburg Verband! (We weren't surprised ... he's an amazing colt!)
June, 2007 - CONGRATULATIONS to Niki of Twilight Farms in Canada on her purchase of Warsteiner (Winterprinz/Fabriano/Wendenburg)!
St.Pr.St. Rosa Canina (Rubinstein I/Warkant/Eiger I) is confirmed in foal to Salieri for 2008 - due date March 29, 2008! Her filly, Salieri Rose, was champion filly at her inspection in August! Definitely a marriage worth repeating!
June 10, 2007 - CONGRATULATIONS to Sherry White, Graystone Sport Horses in Toledo, Ohio for her wonderful pitch black (will he turn grey like his dam?) Samarant colt ... San Morant (aka Sammy) is truly a stunning colt!

May, 2007 - Many of you know that our good friend and sport horse breeder, Grace Dalrymple of Still Waters Farm in North Carolina has to undergo aggressive chemo this summer for a rare form of cancer. Three of Grace's mares will be with us this year while she focuses on her health and family (Grace with her husband Steve and their 5 year old daughter, Alex are pictured left at Alex's dance recital June, 2007 and Alex is following her mother's footsteps, she's riding Scooby pictured left). Fevrier (aka Ninja), St.Pr.St. Rosa Canina (aka Rubi) and St.Pr.St. Weinkönigin (aka Sparkle) arrived safely on June 12, 2007 with their foals. Ninja will be bred to Donnerschlag, Rubi was bred back to Salieri since her filly, Salieri Rose (SOLD) is absolutely stunning, definitely a breeding worth repeating and Sparkle will be bred to World Champion Sir Donnerhall. Sparkle's Farewell III colt, Frankie is for sale.
Cards can be mailed to: Grace Dalrymple, 224 Cloey Lane,
Trenton, NC 28585
April 22, 2007 - Our Holsteiner (Columbus) mare, Juno, gave birth to an incredible Cathalido colt. Chancellor is a flexible, brave, athletic colt with 3 solid gaits and personality plus, plus, plus! He is going to be a very big boy and his "in your pocket" personality is just fabulous! Such a great "marriage" that we've rebred Juno back to Cathalido for 2008! Juno is confirmed in foal - due date April 29, 2008!
April 9, 2007 - We had a wonderful Stedinger colt born to our mare Vb.Pr.St. Winessa (De Niro/Furioso II/Inschallah), in Germany. We're in the process of having Winessa bred to Rohdiamant (she's now confirmed in foal) and will import them to the U.S. this Fall.
