Congratulations to Nanni Baker of Texas for a new Wonderful colt

Nanni reported a new Wonderful X Diamont colt was born yesterday. This is from her embryo transfer effort last year, and the colt is a full brother to Wunderland, the qualifier and competitor of last year National FEI 4-year-old Championship. Nanni also reported that Wunderland has already qualified for the 5-year-old championship. He and his owner Erika have been so successful that riders now withdrew when they saw them in the class. That is a bit odd, but impressive ;-).

This new colt is reported to be nearly identical to his brother except for the stripe being a bit different. I can't wait to see his pictures. Stay tuned.

Wonderful colt out of Elite mare Barcelona by Batido

Yet another super foal from this big impressive elite mare owned by Linda Hackney of San Diego Sporthorses and owner of Elite Hanoverian stallion Batido. This is a full brother of the 2006 inspection site champion colt. Barbi also produced a incredibly elegant filly by Rubino Bellissimo last year. Here is the 2008 colt at 8 days old
