    Smile New Darco son for US breeders- Standing at Rising Star Farm

    Did anyone see Rising Star Farm has a new stallion? Valentino Z !
    It will be so exciting for jumper breeders to have a stallion of this quality with his bloodlines available on US soil. His dam has produced some amazing horses including 3 BWP stallions.

    I'm very excited about this stallion!

    I don't have a confo shot available - but will post one shortly!

    Here is his complete pedigree (for some reason his motherline wasn't completely added into the allbreed pedigree): http://www.paardenfokken.nl/pedigree...91&maxniveau=5

    Thanks!

    Here are links to some proofs that his former owner sent to me - she also wrote the nicest email about what a once in a lifetime horse he was for her :-)

    So Ronda, I always had Darco or a Darco son in mind for the REAL Portia.... Hmmmmmm ... might these two possibly be getting together at some point?

    Thank you :-)

    I got home from the 30 dt today (wahoo Blue!) and found my birthday present!

    Here he is! (he hasn't been worked in over a year - but I think he looks great) Also, please excuse the amateur photography....paging Pam!!!
