Foals born in 2015 : Flamboyant V, UCS Vantage et Triskèle, December 2015

UCS Vantage

UCS Vantage born on the 3rd of April 2015, is, like his half brother Flamboyant V Morinda a son of Visage Van de Olmenhoeve. He is also a HOMOZYGOUS colt for the Tobiano gene, which is to say that if he becomes a stallion later (which is, fingers crossed and fortune favouring us, the future we would wish for him), he will only sire coloured foals whatever the coat colour of the brood mare.

UCS Vantage

Flamboyant V Morinda and UCS Vantage are, to our knowledge, the only two sons of Visage in Europe who are homozygotes. And one can take note that they resemble him a lot. Visage has marked them as his own, in passing on to them not only the style which characterizes all his produce but also his blue eye. Before these two homozygote babies we have never seen one of Visage’s foals with this particular trait.

We have no need to present Visage Van de Olmenhoeve to those who love coloured horses. He is one of the only two stallions to have competed over courses of 1.60m. For those who still don’t know him, here is his page, with photos and videos.

The mother of Vantage is the magnificent Special Design II, daughter of Sempatico, himself by SEMPER (who the Morinda Stud has represented in France). Special Design thus passes on to Vantage through Semper the blood of one of the founding fathers of the race, SANDRO. It is a very interesting line for Dressage and above all for jumping as Sempatico is also a grandson of ICO (Marco Polo). We had been trying to obtain some matings with this beautiful stallion but he has been exported to the USA and there are no more of his straws in Europe for AI.

The two brothers have plenty of personality. They seem to already have an awareness of their own value. They are also very playful and full of energy, bursting with vitality.
