Whistler: ISR/Oldenburg Champion Colt SOLD

Go to Whistler:  ISR/Oldenburg Champion Colt SOLD Home Page

Whistler was born May 6, 2009 and is absolutely lovely. A beautiful bay with just a touch of white, Whistler is an elegant and very refined little colt. His sire,Harmony's Wamberto, took the lead as a stallion early on when in 2006 he was Champion of the KWPN Stallion Show. Wamberto carries himself with lovely expression, outstanding elasticity, and breath taking elevation in his gaits. A son of Rousseau, he brought crowds to their feet when he enters the ring. Fortunately for the US, this amazing talent has come across the pond and is claiming more titles as Champion and setting new records. At the 2007 100-Day Stallion Performance Test at Paxton Farm, Wamberto surpassed his peers, winning the test with an impressive margin. His overall performance index was 158.78, where the second placed stallion earned 135.52. With a dressage index of 168.87 and a jumping index of 145.15, Wamberto strongly demonstrated his versatility and outstanding athletic ability. He earned perfect 10’s for his character and canter, and 8’s and 9’s for his walk, trot, and rideability.

A gorgeous lady, Whistler's dam, Sweden, is a 47pt premium bonited mare with outstanding scores, 8766668, and was named site Reserve Champion at her inspection. She is also a 103pt mare with the ISR/Oldenburg NA. She has been in jumper training and dressage training for a couple of years and exhibits an outstanding temperament undersaddle. Sweden's sire, Caesar, known for his extreme rideability, was an outstanding stallion for the AHHA. His sire, Caletto II, was the Champion of his approval year in Germany and was said to "embody the finest type and movement that is represented in the Holsteiner breed." Caesar was the only Caletto II son standing in the US. Sweden's damsire, Calme, represents an outstanding bloodline going back to Cor de la Bryere and Furioso. Calme has the distinction of being the first elite stallion in the US and has produced sons on the USET driving team and the Young Riders National Dressage team. He has produced dressage athletes, hunters, grand prix jumpers, all of whom have displayed their sires fine characteristics. Without question, he has been a solid and consistent producer of superior sport horses.

This little colt is going to be very special as his inspection scores testify. Whistler was recently awarded the Champion Colt plague at his ISR/Oldenburg NA inspection with an 8.5 on movement and the comments from the judge that 'this colt speaks for himself'as to the quality of his breeding.

Congratulations to Tammy Duda of Kearney, MO on her purchase of this gorgeous colt, who was High Point Colt Champion at his ISR/Oldenburg Inspection in September 2009.
