Lakeland Equestrian: Horse Diaries

Who’s the Gran-Daddy??

Horse: Bob - B. Grandeur, Jellybean - Unique V - February 9th, 2011

Now that we have formally introduced the Daddy to our ‘Jelly – baby’ it is time to delve further and find out who are the Gran – daddies!

Firstly our gorgeous B. Grandeur is out of the world famous Grannex

and his mum is named Oleander (which is very strange as an Oleander is a plant which is VERY poisonous to horses).

Jelly baby’s Mummy was sired by ‘Let’s Go V.’  who is one of the Offspring of the extra – ordinary Voltaire http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltaire_(horse) who has produced both show jumpers and dressage champions …

Jelly baby’s maternal Granny was called Janine (they don’t half have strange names for these mares).

Looking at the genes involved we are expecting a graceful showjumper with a ‘penchant’ for dressage, a Bay (Grannex has never produced a Chestnut) with 2 white hind stockings (just like both parents and grandfathers) and a blaze (just like both parents and grandfathers) so all in all a beautiful little foal with massive potential (here’s hoping!)
