Bannockburn Farm LLC is very proud of Figaro B and his many accomplishments both this year and last. We also wish to congratulate his owner Dr. Linda Bobrick on her purchase of him . I still believe that he is the only Pavarotti son standing in the USA.
I would like to give some credit to the mare , as even though this BB talks almost exclusively about stallions , I believe his Mother, Rianne, had a lot to do with his being an exceptional hunter.
I almost did not purchase her as Wiebe from VDL and I had been looking at broodmare prospects all day and looking at this filly was the last on my list. She was still at her Mother's side and I wasn't comfortable shipping a horse that young.Then when I went over her pedigree she had so much TB in it I said " why am I even looking at this filly ? We have TB bloodlines at home " To which Wiebe replied" Trust me I know this mare " and he owned the stallion and so I did trust his judgement and purchased this filly with Lucky Boy,Wahtamin and Exilio TB stallions in her pedigree.
She has become one of our best producing mares.
She has produced a dressage horse Cinnamon B, El Dorado B a jumping competitor , Figaro B , and two fillies that are hunter prospects , Grace B and Harmony B ( Who was the USHJA zone Hunter Breeding Champion in 2010).
Can't discount those TB's for the hunter market in the USA.
