For two years we did not see much of them because we did not raise them up at our stables. However, every time we saw them, they were very special to us………I think the way a mother looks at her children.
In August last year when both colts became 2½, we brought them home to our stables. We had to know if they were good enough to bring them to the first selection of the stallion inspection 2010.
We lunged them a little and learned to know their characters. It was a difficult decision because of the fact that Jack was a member of the KWPN Stallion Selection Committee. Due to this he could not permit himself to show a horse that wasn’t very special.
So we took the chance…………………
Both stallions passed the strict first selections, and were allowed to compete at the second round at the prestigious KWPN Stallion Show in Den Bosch. Here both then qualified for the third round, which is the round before they are accepted to the performance test. From here both were “Accepted” for the performance testing!
Every time the stallions came into the arena, Jack had to do a step backwards and let some one else judge his breeding products.
