Stunning two year old dark bay gelding by Follow Me OLD out of Little Lady. Graded premium as a foal by Oldenburg society. Branded pink papered Oldenburg passport
A fabulous two year old with a real look at me attitude, flashy with his four white socks and white star and snip. He has a friendly, amenable temperament and off the floor powerful paces. He pushes and carries well with his hind-leg and has good freedom in the shoulder and moves straight. He is an elegant type very uphill with long legs a very beautiful head and large kind eye. He should mature around 16.2hh.
Bertie has always had his feet trimmed and been wormed regularly, for the first three months he was stabled at night and out all day and since then he has been turned out in a small herd in a ten acre field so has had plenty of room to move and develop.
Bertie is by Follow Me OLD a young up and coming stallion at Lodbergen stud in Germany. Follow Me has an impressive pedigree being by Furstenball with Donnerhall on his mother line. Both sides of his pedigree have produced state premium mares and graded stallions.
Follow Me was Champion of his stallion licensing and has been awarded the OLD prefix for select stallions. Follow Me himself sired Finest Selection (in his first crop of foals) who is now a graded stallion and also won the German Breeding championships for three year old stallions. Finest Selection is out of a mare by Lauries Crusader who is also Bertie’s maternal grand sire so obviously a good mix of bloodlines.
Bertie’s dam is Little Lady who I have owned for 12 years and has produced 10 foals many of whom can still be seen with me. They all have beautiful heads and fabulous temperaments; several have been sold as very talented but easy amateur horses because of their sensible attitude and pleasing nature. One, Starmaker finished third in the Elementary freestyle at the National Championships with me this year.
Little Lady was graded Gold medal mare in Westfalen Head Studbook at 3 years old, also graded into Select Studbook BWBS and Oldenburg studbook. She is by Laurentianer a son of the famous Thoroughbred stallion Lauries Crusader. Lauries Crusader has been one of the most influential Thoroughbred stallions for German warmblood breeding producing 264 state premium mares and 55 licensed sons. In 2006 Lauries Crusader was awarded stallion of the year by the Hanoverian society, the first time a non–Hanoverian stallion had been awarded this prize. Little Lady also has the famous sire Grande who is ranked in the German Eternal Top 10 sire list. He produces both jumping and dressage horses of the best quality. She has other jumping bloodlines on her mother’s side including Argentan which have resulted in her off spring all having very good canters.
