We imported MH´s A Little Queen in 2014 from Germany. She was there for a short time under saddle. We used her only as a broodmare in Canada. Queen had 2 foals here and was a very good mom. First of her foal Forbes Farm`s Lorcan was licensed at the CWHBA-stallion inspection in 2018. Her second foal from 2021 was presented at the CWHBA inspection in October and was the winner of the foal futurity 2021 with a final score of 32.5.
Now Queen is in foal (due date mid 08/2023). Sire is CS Limelight (CS Stage Fright x Fantasts), Belgian Warmblood..

She has no problem with vet, farrier or loading. The mare is sound and has no injuries or vices.
The mare is registered in the German ZfdP main book and is Premium. She is entered in the CWHBA main mare book.
Queen will be available after weaning her foal in January, 2022. More pictures and video available.

Her bloodlines:
Furioso II (Selle Francais)
Such a stallion is only born every 100 years! said the discoverer of Furioso II, Georg Vorwerk, who discovered the dark chestnut on a tour of France. With him, the breeding of the Anglo-Norman found its way into German breeding areas, mainly in Oldenburg.
The extremely heavily used dark chestnut stallion became a great sire and producer of performance horses, which early upgraded their sire to millionaires in terms of winning amount. Furioso II was a sensational presence, especially in his younger years, and did not conceal his French origins. Even at an advanced age, he still sparkled with energy.
Furioso II was out of the great mare, Dame de Renville, who produced a series of wonderful horses when mated with Furioso. The first of these was Mexico, who standing at the French National Stud of Le Pin, sired 20 approved sons, 20 dams of stallions, and famous international showjumping horses, including Laeken, Jexico de Parc and Heur de Bratand. His son, Le Mexico, has been a hugely influential sire of jumping horses in Holland.
Furioso II’s sire, the Thoroughbred, Furioso was born in England in 1939 and went on to be one of the most influential sires in modern performance horse breeding, even though he never won a single race in his 21 starts!
Furioso was described as ‘well balanced but with slightly knock kneed forelegs and tight hocks’. He was also rich in Thoroughbred jumping blood – being by Precipitation out of a mare by Son-In-Law by Dark Ronald.
The authoritative De L’etalon Sport Français of 1992, remarked: ‘he had good bone, and walked liked a lord, with a magnificent pace, very energetic and showing a great deal of amplitude, his tail swinging at each step. His trot and gallop were good but not exceptional. Though full of life he was docile and had a good temperament.’
Furioso xx, was the leading sire of jumping horses in France from 1954-1961. His son, Lutteur B, who went on to win the 1964 Olympic individual gold for showjumping, amazed the German breeders when he appeared at the Hamburg Derby. Maas Hell, in Die Grossen Hengste Holsteins records the reaction: ‘The Germans were again amazed at how nonchalantly Lutteur B performed on the jumping course, how he played with the distances, and how, with a long neck, he left the course as though nothing had happened.’
Purioso (Oldenburg)
Born and raised in Oldenburg, Purioso was described at his stallion test as: ‘Good ride, typical stallion with the height of 1.66 m. The movement is good, the hind leg is a bit long’. Purioso was placed 10th out of 32 stallions. In his performance test he received an 8 for jumping but a 9 under saddle.
Purioso is out of an Oldenburg mare Alinda who is by the Holsteiner Martell who was in turn by Trebonius, a Thoroughbred grandson of Dark Ronald. Alina was out of the Westfalien mare, Alice von Buer.
Purioso produced five approved sons with the KWPN: Bentley, Cantor, Cocktail, Faldo and Prince Paradiso R, as well as numerous successful mares – almost half his mares in the studbook received a ‘ster’ predicate. There are four KWPN approved sons out of Purioso mares. One is Consul (sire Nimmerdor) exported to the American Iron Spring Farm. Others include Edwig (sire Zion), No Limit (sire Indoctro) and Tygo (sire Numero Uno).
In recognition of his breeding success, Purioso received the Keur predicate in 1988.
Purioso was an exceptionally prolific sire of competition horses and five of his progeny competed at the Barcelona Games. The best-known competition horses by Purioso are Olympic Wendela and Olympic Cocktail – one a showjumper, the other a dressage horse.
Argentinus is the most influential son of the Hanoverian stallion, Argentan I. Argentinus’ dam is by Duden II who was highly esteemed as a producer of top quality performance horses and wonderful broodmares.
By 1996, Argentinus was the youngest millionaire among Germany’s top sires and he remained a top sire right up until his death in 2007. A successful advanced level jumper himself, Argentinus produced both jumping and dressage competitors and stallions.
His progeny include over 20 approved stallions, including the stallion performance test winner and Vechta price record breaking, August der Starke (sire of Victoria Max-Theuer’s Grand Prix dressage horse, Augustin) and numerous State Premium Mares, many of which have proved themselves on a national level.
In the survey of the world’s top 75 jumping sires that appears in Monneron 2007-2008, Argentinus is ranked 16th the world, with 15 CSI winners.
Argentinus was the Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2005, and the 2015 Stallion Yearbook, takes an extra page to detail his career. So far he has produced 1482 competitors with winnings of €5,286,991 – 544 in dressage and 1134 jumpers. Albano was clearly the most successful dressage horse with winnings of €208,443, while the most successful jumper was Anka with €773,497, followed by the stallions, Air Jordan (€467,332), Asti Spumante (€454,240) and Adlantus As FRH with €407,662.
Argentinus has a 2014 FN ranking of 100 for dressage and 119 for jumping. His Hanoverian value for dressage is 90, and for jumping, 129.
He comes in 17th place on the Monneron 2007/2008 top 75 stallions ranking, with 15 representatives.
On the WBFSH 2007 jumping stallion standings, Argentinus was in 7th position, with 18 representatives, six of whom have 200+ points: Special Ed (Grannus), Arko III (Beach Boy), Asti Spumante (Landfrieden), Air Jordan (Matador), Anastasia (Zeus) and E & W Armani (Weltmeister). Markus Ehning’s star duo – Anka (Waidmann) and Armitage (Grannus) are just behind, tied on 130 points.
In 2008, he was ranked 3rd, but then disappears from the standings, although he makes a brief appearance on the 2009 Dressage stallion rankings in 27th place.
Ramiro Z
Ramiro was the most popular representative of the Ramzes line and at one stage was the most frequented sire in Germany. He stood at stud in Westfalia, Holstein, Zangersheide and Holland.
When Ramiro was presented for selection, he was described as the ideal type of the modern Holsteiner – strongly imprinted by his dam, tall and elegant, showing the top line of his grandfather, Cottage Son xx, with powerful frame, a glorious face and large, clear eyes. His excellently formed neck, beautifully set, could still be seen – even when he was an old horse – and is stamped on his progeny. Ramiro displayed a very good walk, a normal trot, and a great canter.
“Even as a yearling, Ramiro radiated high quality and sovereignty. As a two and a half year old, he was runner up at the Holsteiner licensing in Elmshorn. He was very big, already standing 1.75 metre high as a three year old, with a clever head on a long, beautifully arched neck. Gentle to handle, just like his grandsire, Ramzes, he was very talented at jumping, which he not only proved by finishing the stallion performance test in Westercelle as the best of his year, but also later at international level with Fritz Legges. However, at the time he was already a self confident stud stallion and occasionally tested his rider with a trial of strength.”
Ramiro was among the early stallions to compete. During his own sporting career, Ramiro had numerous wins at all levels of showjumping – Nations Cups, Puissance (jumping over 2.2 metres) and in international Grand Prix competition.
