SSF Orchis

This is the keur preferent mare Orchis (Jazz x Roemer x Eros).  She is our foundation mare and the highest ranked dressage-breeding KWPN mare outside of the Netherlands. She was bred by one of the top breeders in Holland, our friend and humble fellow-school teacher, Gerard Vervoorn. The success of any breeding program relies completely on the quality of its mares. Our program boasts one of, if not the, finest collection of KWPN broodmares available in North America.

Details on collection fees, registry activations and offspring results are forthcoming.

Foals of 2014

We are fortunate to report that our 2014 foal crop is spectacular! The two fillies both sold within 12 hours of posting the videos on Facebook. 

Ja Bam SSF
(Everdale x Orchis x Jazz)

We finally have another colt from Orchis, and, holy cow, is he a good one!  He's a beautiful dappled chestnut, just like his mom, and all power and expression.

Definitely a keeper as a potential stallion prospect.

Jelisco SSF
(Florianus II x Eliscia SSF x UB-40)

Carol and I were stunned when this mare started foaling and black legs were the first things we saw.  This colt is a picture-perfect black beauty.  He's tall, muscular, and all boy.  We're really excited about the quality of sport horse Eliscia seems destined to produce.

Jubilantes SSF
(UB-40 x Werites SSF x Freestyle)  SOLD

This is a lovely, dark brown filly who is the spitting image of her talented mother. 

J'Orites SSF
(Florianus II x D'Orites SSF x Donatelli)  SOLD

Here's our second Orchis granddaughter of the season, a super correct and athletic red head.  

Jubilation SSF
(UB-40 x Mistral x Vincent)

This beautiful little boy had a rough start.  A violent thunderstorm induced an early labor, and his dam delivered him out in the mud in the middle of the night.  Within a week, he had developed enough of an umbilical infection that he required surgery.  But, "alls well that ends well"--

Jubes is now a month and a half out from surgery, completely recovered, and looking fabulous.  He has the prettiest face and fanciest type of any of our babies this year, plus that light, floaty movement for which his dam's sire's offspring are famous.
