    Default Am I allowed to "fantasize" re: Borculo foal auction?

    I'm very familiar with the auctions in Germany, but in the Netherlands, not.

    So I seem to be infatuated by this particular filly in the upcoming Borculo foal auction.

    I have some questions.

    How do you get to Borculo, especially if you don't know the language and don't want to drive? Fly to Amsterdam?

    Are there any reputable agents/breeders that would accompany you to the auction and help place a foal in to a suitable raising farm?

    If you have been and/or participated in a Dutch foal auction, I would love to hear your experience.

    Shared her on my FB page a couple of days ago too as have a special interest in the mare line as it's one of the few of quality that carry the silver gene in the Dutch warmbloods. Her dam Voice D is quite stunning too. It's a shame the filly isn't silver herself.

    No, think everyone is too engrossed in the olympics at the moment.

    Agreed Voice D is very nice and with Voice D being an Elite mare and out of such a good damline I doubt you can go wrong. Her dam Aafke also produced Haafke dam of Special D and Haafke's full brother Jeoris went GP

    Friends own a daughter of Fidelia by Jet Set D a maternal sister to Voice, she is a silver mare too.

    This family line is all from Stall D

    Another sibling Treffer D also a very nice producer..

    I live 30 minutes from Borculo. It is in the east of the Netherlands. It is about 1,5 hour drive from Amsterdam. I could help you with other things.
