Hello Everyone!
I ADDED YET ANOTHER VIDEO CLIP, AN OLD. STALLION SOLD TO CANADA FROM THE OLD. AUCTION!SEE POST BELOW FOE INFO AND LINK..........

Thank you Marydell, for posting the Hannoverian Auction link! For any of you Balou du Rouet Fans, check out # 65 and #64 , both Balou sons, and both WOW! After watching these videos and others, and comparing them to the 6 Balou du Rouet's that I have bred, I am more and more convinced that Balou du Rouet ABSOLUTELY stamps his offspring in type , elastic movement, and in jumping scope and style! Check the video clips out at:

I could only see 65, but very nice! Of course I am a huge Balou fan...Amazing is coming along really well, and if I can learn to stay on that jump, we'll be in the hunter ring next year! :)

Karen, are you expecting any Balou's next year?

Here is Amazing from this summer at his inspection...

My vote goes for #65. Lovely!!!!! So elastic, and look at that hind leg! I agree that Balou definitely is very prepotent for passing on his jumping style.

Interesting breeding on #65 too. Contender now in the damline as well as sire line.

First... Amazing is Amazing! :yes:

I like 65 as well... great color and I love the way he flips his hind end in the air... very careful. :)

Here is #64. I prefer #65 though. He is lovely.

I love Amazing...he is fantastic! He is on my future hubby breeding list!

I am also in love with Banderas so much so I am in the process of buying a breeding to him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_qPPFXfH3g

I agree I like #65...lovely boy.

I can't wait for another Balou baby this spring! :)

Wow, I love both of them. #65 has such beautiful balanced movement and gorgeous jumping style. I like #64 too. Wonder how he'd do on course with a rider up -- he looked as though he was looking for bigger jumps. :)

Both horses are awesome - I liked #64 expression going into the jumps - very alert and focused on the obstacle. Of the two, #64 looked like he was having the most fun. Liked his landings the best too.

"Karen, are you expecting any Balou's next year?"


Hi Horsechick!

Amazing does indeed look AMAZING!!!! Congratulations!!

Thanks for asking........Yes, I do have 2 more Balou's coming in 2010.... Those two will bring my Grand Total of Balou's to 9 (out of 4 different mares)! Think I like this stallion a little bit?grin

Seriously, until I find another stallion that will reliably produce beautiful, modern, correct, athletes with 3 great gaits and (of course) fantastic jumping ability.......Why look elsewhere?grin He has produced exceptional young horses from 4 very different mares for me, and now that two of them (Athena Ster and Bleu Ster ) are under saddle, I am now also confident in the disposition Balou du Rouet can throw...... sensitive but very rideable....

All 6 Balous were KWPN First Premiums and 2 for 2 designated Ster Quality. Both coming 2010 foals are full siblings to the Young and Mature horse High Point Jumper Champions from this year's Keuring at ISF (Bleu SCF (Balou X Silvio 1 Elite Pref), and Eclipse SCF (Balou X Nova Keur (our full sister to Judgement ISF)).

Enjoy the video clips of the three Balou sons.....
Warmly,
Karin

I gotta say that is a spectacular jump on Banderas... just wish you could trace more of his dam line.. :(

Just wanted to say thanks for all the compliments on my boy! :)

The more Balou's I see, the more I like them-I think he is well on his way to leaving his mark as a sire.

Karin, good luck with your next bunch!

Bon Balou (Balou du Rouet-Argentinus-Landadel) stands with us at Gestuet WM - he is a super 3 year old stallion with an excellent temperament & work ethic & he is currently ridden by a young girl.

We will be freezing semen from him for export to the US for next season & are just organising a semen agent.

We are eagerly awaiting his first foals due next Spring, when he will start competing in 4 year old jumping competitions.:)

Here is a video clip of him taken in January this year here

That's fantastic! I've had my eye on Bon Balou for a while and would love to breed to him if available in the US. :)

WOW! BON BALOU IS AMAZING! (no pun intended HorseChick!<g>

Please send me a video tape Folly. How tall is Bon Balou? Any photos available of his dam?
I am excited to find out that you will be selling his semen in the US!

Warmly,
Karin

Thanks for your lovely comments :)

Bon Balou is 16.2hh. I am afraid I dont have any photos of his dam, La Belle, but she is full sister to Air Force One 5, who is now jumping 1.40m as a 7 yr old.

I have just heard that a1 Performance Sires http://a-1performancesires.com/ will be adding him to their stallion roster!
