Schwarzenegger is a top-class breeding stallion with a perfect character. Schwarzenegger was born in Verden, Germany in 1997 from the Windeler breeding program. He is black/brown in color with four white socks and a small star. With a height of 17 hh (1.72 m), and a natural uphill build, he carries himself with a dignified presence. In his stallion performance test in Redefin, he scored an impressive 125.24 points. This score placed him 3rd overall out of 22 stallions. His integrated breeding value estimation is 122 for Dressage and 114 for jumping. His temperament and character impressed the judges with a score of 9 and 10 respectively. In his offspring he tends to improve the canter with a 120 as well as the the jumping manner and scope with a 128. He also throws his wonderful mind and kind expression making very rideable offspring. He has offspring competing in both advanced dressage and advanced jumping classes. His offspring are known for their super basic gaits, fantastic trainability/rideability, and the tendency to show talent for both dressage and jumping. As a foal, Schwarzenegger was the vice-champion at the Lower Saxon Foal Championships. He has brilliant basic gaits and an outstanding rideability. He has placed at advanced level dressage competitions. In 2007, he was victorious at various advanced level dressage tests. He has competed successfully at Intermedaire I in Germany.

This filly is a model of refined elegance!!!  She is a power mover with great loft and a quick hind end.  She is black bay in color with two perfectly matching front white socks and one white hind sock.   Her temperament is excellent.  We expect this filly to follow in the footsteps of its fantastic Premium, Champion & Foal of Distinction siblings out of the same dam. With such a strong background in this filly’s pedigree, she will be destined for the big ring.  She is a true FEI prospect.

MarKim Farms is proud to introduce Swan Lake MKF our 2014 black bay filly by Schwarzenegger out of our Diamond Hit/Roemer mare, Dubonnet. "Ballie" is a tall, dark beauty with one hind sock and two perfectly matched and very striking front socks that reminded us of ballerina toe shoes!! Swan Lake MKF was in fact named for one of the greatest classical ballets of all time, "Swan Lake," which tells the story of a princess and which requires a ballerina of exceptional talent due to its unusual demands for flexibility and technical dance skills. Swan Lake MKF is destined to be that kind of ballerina!!

Also, in naming this beautiful filly, we wanted to not only use an "S" to reflect her stunning sire Schwarzenegger but also an "L" to honor her great grand dam, Loretta. Considered by many to be one of the greatest mares in modern sporthorse breeding, Loretta is the dam of the stallions Diamond Hit, Sandro Hit, and Royal Hit.

NEWS FLASH!!!:  Swan Lake was awarded Premium status at her Oldenburg inspection at a mere 3.5 weeks old!!!  The Oldenburg inspectors were very impressed by how super well developed she was at her young age.
