   Spice WF     

(Elite AHS Stallion Sam Steele / Eichendorff)  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spice WF, born in 2004, is a beautiful 16.2 hand black bay Hanoverian mare.  She carries the bloodlines of the magnificent stallion, Sherlock Holmes through her sire, Elite Hanoverian stallion Sam Steele.  Her damsire is the highly successful Dressage stallion, Eichendorff.  As important as her sire line, is her strong dam line, which is a treasure to have in a broodmare.

 

 

   
 

Spice has been undersaddle for 1.5 years and has also had 4 foals with frozen semen (including one embryo transfer!), so she is very fertile as a broodmare. Her bloodlines are very interesting with the influence of jumper and dressage blood. We are confident that she will produce some fabulous dressage horses for us here at MarKim Farms when crossed with the right stallion (boy, do we have some great ideas!!!).

Spice is by the ELITE Hanoverian Stallion, Sam Steele (Sherlock Holmes) x EM Esplanade (Eichendorff).  He has produced many top Hunters, Jumpers and Dressage horses. Sam Steeles' sire, Sherlock Holmes, is the sire of eight licensed-stallions and 40 State-Premium-Mares. Sherlock Holmes' offspring, like Sam Steele, are multi-talented for Hunters, Jumpers and Dressage. Sam Steele has produced numerous horses with extravagant movement.  Sam Steele's dam, SPS Eskalade, has produced 3 ELITE Hanoverian stallions.

Spice's dam, EM Esplanade is an amazing broodmare and has produced an approved AHS Elite Hanoverian stallion, an upcoming Grand Prix mare and several extremely promising offspring moving up the levels. So these are half siblings of Spice through the same dam. Spice herself has produced the champion Hanoverian mare at her inspection out of 8 really nice mares that were presented that day. Spice and her foals seem to have a very good, quiet and friendly temperament. We look forward to riding Spice in the future as well as breeding her to top dressage stallions.

We are excited about not only Spice's strong sire line, but also her very impressive dam line!!!  She is the complete package.

This Spring, Spice was bred to the top stallion, Tailormade Temptation (Tuschinski/Haarlem), for a foal in 2016.  This in utero foal is offered for sale.  Please visit our Sales Page for more information.

Eichendorff

 
 

Spice's damsire is the impressive Dressage stallion, Eichendorff. He won his first tests for young dressage horses with scores above 9.0. When he was six, he won his first St. Georges tests and by the time he was seven, he competed in his first international advanced (S) level dressage tests. In 2006 and 2007 he won the series “Stars of Tomorrow” in Munich/GER and also won and placed in international Grand Prix dressage classes. The Austrian State Champion title was also among his numerous achievements in 2010.

Eichendorff's Rhineland branded sire Ehrentusch, stationed at the NRW State Stud in Warendorf, won his performance test in Warendorf in 1987 and was then trained to Grand Prix. More than 20 of his sons were licensed and his offspring, including Isabell Werth’s El Santo NRW, are successful in all disciplines of equestrian sport. 

His dam Florence also gave birth to two full brothers: Ehrendorf, who is also licensed, and Estobar NRW, NRW Champion Stallion, top priced stallion and a winner in the short tour under Hubertus Schmidt. Florence was also bred to Münchhausen/Trakehner which resulted in the licensed Moliere, who also wins advanced level dressage classes with Victoria Max-Theurer, and Marquis Monet, who took fourth place in the 2005 Bundeschampionat under Henrike Sommer in the class for four-year old mares and geldings and now places in medium (M) level dressage with Heiner Schiergen.

The granddam St.Pr.St. Florabelle is the dam Werbespot (by World Magic), a licensed stallion, and two State Premium mares, Farina und Fiorentina (both by Ferragamo), the latter of which is the dam of the licensed Exzellenz (by Ehrentusch).

The outstanding line of Addi has produced a good number of licensed stallions such as Frühlingstraum I and II, Frühlingssturm, Argelith Quattro, Prinz Segelhorst and Bertoli W as well as internationally successful sport horses, including Amaretto, Baldessarini W, Piquet and Minister, etc.

Spice's dam, EM Esplanade by Eichendorff, is just as impressive.  This Elite Hanoverian mare is an amazing broodmare and has produced an approved AHS Elite Hanoverian stallion, Wellesly, an upcoming Grand Prix mare, Wladina, and several extremely promising offspring moving up the levels.
