BLISS MF (Balou du Rouet -
2006 OLDENBURG STALLION
16.1 1/2 Hands, Bay Sabino
2012 NA 70-DAY STALLION TEST
THE FIRST APPROVED SON OF BALOU DU ROUET TO STAND IN THE US!
Incredible athletic ability from both his sire Balou du Rouet and the mare's sire Argentinus, beautiful movement and perfect conformation. Most importantly though is the brain! The Argentinus on the mare side is what really makes the difference because Argentinus is well known for putting great minds on his offspring and Bliss's mother Ornella is the calmest, most level headed horse I have ever encountered. So while Bliss's
athletic ability is obvious it is his great mind that will win the day.
Bliss MF is approved Hanoverian, RPSI, Oldenburg GOV,sBs and BWP, where he received the highest jumping given out on the tour.
Cartier R (Cassini I/Acorado I)
Bay 16.1 Holsteiner

winner of the 1994 Federal German show jumping championships and later caused a
sensation in the international show jumping sport under Franke Sloothaak, winning, among others, the Arnheim Grand Prix, several Nations Cups as well as World Cup show jumping events.
Cassini I is the son of Capitol I, one of the greatest Holsteiner show jumping sires and father of forty approved stallions. Capitol I was richly endowed with the heritage of two
great Thoroughbred descendants of the Bay Ronald line - Cottage Son xx and Manometer xx, and also carried a double cross of the influential Anglo-Arab, Ramzes.

Capitol’s dam, Folia, showed great jumping potential herself, and also produced the licensed stallions Latus I and II, as well as Capitol II, and famous daughters U-Capitola (dam of Lord Capitol from Lord and Quite Capitol from Quidam de Revel) .
Cassini I has been at least as successful in breeding, with a series of offspring active in the
international sport such as Ingmar, Eurocommerce Berlin, Coco, Cavalor Cumano,
Carino and Olympic. Cassini I is a highly sought-after sire of performance horses throughout Europe and the entire world . His offspring are in great demand and have proven themselves many times over in the toughest

Adelheidsdorf stallion performance test twice receiving 10s for his exceptional jumping ability. In 1999 and 2000, he qualified and competed in the Bundeschampionat. Unfortunately, Acorado I died before
