Born May 31, 2007, this gorgeous filly by Balou du Rouet out of Never Say Never, keur preferent, was pre-sold in utero. Congratulations to Suzanne Trickey of Ontario!
Balou du Rouet's sire, Baloubet du Rouet, at the moment one of the most successful jumping stallions on the international stage (three-times World Cup Champion in a row, winner of many Grand Prix’s, recent winner of the Top-Ten-Finals in Geneva), has an exceptional pedigree. Grandsire Galoubet is son of the great stallion Almé. On the dam’s side, through Rantzau, he is directly related to the founder of the bloodline ”Cor de la Bryere” from Holstein, the likeness can be seen in Balou du Rouet’s jumping style and ability. His stunning dam, Georgia is by the increasingly popular Contender son, Continue.
Never Say Never keur preferent, the dam, was "TOP TEN" in her IBOP (under saddle performance test), with very high marks for her jumping ability, including an 8.5 for scope. She was awarded her preferent predicate by the time she was nine years old, for producing three offspring who achieved the Ster predicate at the age of three or over. She has been a consistent producer of exceptional quality offspring, including two being named #1 in North America at their respective KWPN-NA keurings.
Calypsa Bloom NSN was born very well muscled, like so many of Never Say Never's foals. She is lively, inquisitive, and very athletic with a strong topline, plenty of suppleness and a powerful hindquarters. She moves as good as she looks!
