Uzeo SSF, dark bay 2001 KWPN (Zeoliet x Jazz x Roemer) aka "Bubba"
Bought as a foal (from a video where he was just 2 weeks old), this horse came to me at 7 months old. He was the first foal from the mare Orchis SSF, owned by Scot Tolman from Shooting Star Farm in New Hampshire. I liked her breeding line, as it led back (grandmother) to the mare Charitas (sired by Roemer) which was owned by Gerard Vervoorn in Holland. Charitas is the mother of Exquis Nadine, the mare that has been very succesfull at the international circuit with Hans Peter Minderhoud. Charitas is also the mother of Orchis SSF, and thus the grandmother of Uzeo.
Of course, all this was not yet playing at the time when I bought Uzeo, but I really liked the mare line behind him and then years later Exquis Nadine became a very famous Charitas offspring.
Uzeo has only participated in two shows in his life, one at Fourth Level and one at Prix St. George. He has come a long way, as he was not always the easiest horse to train when he was younger, mostly due to him being sensitive to his surroundings. A true "delicate flower" as someone once mentioned, paired with a well developed sense of justice. Over the years though, with patience and dedication, he has really become a great participant in the team rider and horse. He gives his best even when things get tougher and is 100% honest toward his rider. His ground manners have always been impeccable, and he is an incredibly interactive and intelligent fellow with a great sense of humor. He really talks with you, and he does have a lot to say. A very special individual, a true character with personality plus.
Versailles, black 2012 Westfalian (Glock's Voice x Delphi x Polany) aka "Mr. V."
Versailles came to the farm as a long yearling. He was imported in December 2013. Versailles' sire, Glock's Voice is the international Grand Prix stallion ridden by Edward Gal. Voice is sired by de Niro. Versailles' dam has produced a three year old National Reserve Champion mare at the Westfalian Elite Mare Championships and another offspring of her was a Subli Cup winner, sold before she could participate in the finals with qualification to Verden.
He is an incredibly elastic athletic boy at 17 hands. With a deep voice resembling the singer Barry White, he is a cool cucumber, a very confident horse in every way. He is been ridden very lightly, and exposed to a wide variety of things.
