Beethoven and Donatella are proven breeding horses. Luc is a perfect example of this cross.
We’ve waited a long time for another foal out of Vega, and we are so happy to have been able to cross her with our own 2010 World Champion Stallion Icon. Mary is the perfect combination of her dam, Hylee’s Vega, and Icon that we could not have asked for anything more. She is upheaded and has a beautiful trot.******SOLD*******
We had fun deciding which first outside stallion to cross our foundation broodmare Dragonsmeade Ibarra! We decided to cross her with the beautiful Dressed Up GCH. Avant-Garde, “Eric,” is everything we dreamed of! He has a gorgeous Morgan head, a correct shoulder and length of neck, and athletic ability. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Eric!
Along with his half brother, Icon, Axios may be one of the best stallions we’ve bred. By multi World Champion And The Beat Goes On and out of multi World Champion HVK Obisidian, Axios is a dream cross. While in training with Tim Roesink he went on to win world championships and regional championshops in park harness, park saddle, and in the pleasure division during his show career. We have bred him to most of our top foundation brood mares. This big stallion is extremely upheaded and has a dynamic park trot reminiscent of his sire And The Beat Goes On and his maternal grandsire HVK Bell Flaire. 2010 marked the year for his first foal crop, and his offspring are exotic and very upheaded. Not only was he a dynamic show horse, Axios is a proven to be an amazing sire.
Patty is one of our favorite and important brood mares. She has show horse attitude, and she has always been known in our family as “Princess Patty.” Mike Carpenter trained her during her multiple world championship and regional grand champion show career. She has proven herself beyond our expectations in the breeding shed. Patty had had two fillies by And The Beat Goes On, two foals by Dragonsmeade Icon, and she had a filly by Dragonsmeade Spectre in 2020. She is in foal with a filly by Caffeinated for 2021!
Nacho is a charismatic foal by multi world champion Dragonsmeade Vendome out of our lovely mare Idlewild. He is stamped by Vendome, but he also has a lot of his dam in his look too! We are excited to see him grow up!
Battalion is the product of a test to see if this cross would work. In general, Icon’s offspring are exotic and pretty. Battalion’s dam has important classic Morgan blood so we were hopefull the resulting foal would have Morgan curves, beauty, and talent from both his sire and dam. Brian is better than we could have imagined! We are thrilled Rob and Dawn Montgomery have selected Brian to join their farm! He will remain in training at Grove Pointe.
Jenny is out of one our top foundation brood mares and by our beloved And The Beat Goes On. She has beautiful Morgan type and she’s inherited her sire and dam’s beauty and talent. We showed her just a few times, and in the end, we decided she’d be best in our fields having foals for us. Jenny is due to have a filly by Icon in 2016 and a colt by Beethoven for the 2017 foaling season.
Bee’s Knees, “Anna”, is just the filly we were hoping for when Tim Roesink requested the cross between triple crown winning stallion Dragonsmeade Icon’s full sister, Dragonsmeade Euphoria, and the royally bred Basinga! She is stretchy and refined with beautiful Morgan type.
Bell Song is an extraordinary daughter we have out of our foundation brood mare Simply Apropos and by one of our favorite stallions HVK Bell Flaire. She had a short, but very sweet show career that started with her winning the 2002 $13,000 Futurity at Far West Regional with 16 quality yearlings competing. For her only appearance in 2003, she added a Reserve World Champion Futurity Two Year Old mare title to her record. Bell Song has now entered our foundation broodmare herd. She had a beautiful filly by Beethoven and two gorgeous fillies by Dragonsmeade Axios.
