KER: Principles of Bone Development in Horses

"Few animals are as precocious as the horse. Within 20 minutes of birth a foal may stand, and within hours can be ready to run at speeds no human athlete will ever achieve. At this stage of life, even with this exceptionally early development, horses have only 17% of their mature bone mineral content, but they also have only 10% of their ultimate body weight." That's the start of a really interesting article from Kentucky Equine Nutrition that covers bone development and growth rate in foals. ...read more

Negro

Sire of Olympic & World Champion Valegro!
Sire of Olympic, World Equestrian Games, and World Cup winner Valego, Negro has certainly confirmed his value as a sire of top dressage talent. Negro offspring have proven time and again that they have the talent for the FEI work and he is consistently well-ranked on the World Breeding Federation’s Dressage Sire Rankings. An exceptional canter, active hindleg, and talent for collection are consistent across his offspring. Due to the exceptional quality of his offspring, Negro has been awarded the coveted Preferant status by the KWPN and was the 2017 KWPN Stallion of the Year.

As a damsire, Negro’s record has been equally impressive, and he has proven especially successful when crossed with the stallion Lord Leatherdale. From this combination we’ve seen many licensed stallions, successful Young Horse winners of the PAVO Cup Finals and the World Championships for Young Horses, as well as successful Grand Prix horses.
Negro’s sire Ferro has been one of the most successful international dressage stallions in history, capturing the Team Silver at the World Equestrian Games, European Championships, and Olympics. Negro’s dam, the Keur mare Fewrie, produced seven offspring who all competed at Z level or higher. She is by the successful international dressage stallion Variant. Gondelier, the sire of Negro’s granddam, was a successful Grand Prix showjumper to 1.60 meters.

At his Stallion Performance Test Negro was Reserve Champion overall, earning exceptional praise for his canter which scored an 8.5. Negro won his KWPN Stallion Show competitions and was the highest placed Dutch horse at the 2001 FEI Young Horse Championships. By age 7 he was winning at Prix St. Georges and had a remarkable talent for all the Grand Prix work. Olympic rider Anne Van Olst calls him ‘the best horse I ever rode.’

Negro’s relevance for dressage breeders continues today and we are lucky to offer such a world-recognized sire to our North American breeders.
