Furst Noble inspection video -

The only son of FURST HEINRICH bred and born in the U.S. and out of a most revered mare line!

NOBLE is older than most foals doing the inspections, having been born on January 1st, so doesn't have the "baby charm" of the youngsters, but he shows solid conformation with very easy, natural suspension and the supple, strong walk that his wonderful dam, DREAM RUBINA, is known for in all of her children.

The breeding lines of this colt are MADE for performance. He is the type and has the solid interior qualities that will train up the levels. With his strong hind leg, broad hocks and clear mind, he is the very type that will be a solid FEI horse at the end of the day.

DREAM RUBINA is out of my foundation mare line (1977), the mare HELENA "E" (Elite Trakehner) whose bloodlines are also a who's who of Trakehner performance, being by HERBSTSTURM - PREGEL - BORIS.  I have produced 5 licensed stallions from this mare line.
DREAM RUBINA is dam to the well respected stallion QREDIT of Hilltop Farms, himself a producer of consistent top quality offspring.... blood will tell.

This is a short clip to mark the day of inspection for entry into German Oldenburg Verband registry

SEEKER (Sezuan x Dream Rubina) ET colt

SEEKER, new colt by SEZUAN out of DREAM RUBINA - is SOLD

There is quite a story behind this boy. 

SEEKER at TWO days of age

Last year, for the first time, I decided to offer ET babies, "in utero" from Dream Rubina. In all, there were 4 that I offered; 3 were purchased, but this breeding , by Sezuan, was fetal sexed as a "filly", and callers were somehow disappointed that it was "filly" and not "Colt". I said, "well, you never know. We have been surprised before, and I cannot guarantee that it is filly." Still, no one wanted to jump up for a filly option. So, time passed and I decided I would keep the filly, as I have no Dream Rubina replacement. 

FILLY by Sezuan x Dream Rubina born May 2nd

Yep, you got it! The one that WAS purchased, sexed as a "colt",  was a FILLY! 

I just do not keep colts any longer. 

Seeker 2 days

One of the yearling girls... SOLD

My two well bred yearling fillies have rarely been "seen in public". They seem to grow like weeds and are never in the right frame to photo, much less video. I seldom offer yearlings for sale, but, in this case, I think it is time, as I am dwindling down my breeding operation and selling off the prize mares and fillies from my long time (41 years) of breeding.

Here we have "SELAH" ( SEZUAN - PAINTED BLACK - DONNERHALL - LEMON xx - TRAPPER!) Just a fabulous, deep pedigree, and I am proud of her genetics. 

  She was born March 14, 2014; registered and branded Westfalen and imported last December.
 She will be a very tall one, over 17 hands I'd say. 

SELAH is definitely stamped by her sire, down to the snip on his nose. Her legs are correct, very long, so she is somewhat gangly at the  moment. But she will get her power back and will be an impressive riding horse. SOLD

2015 Colt by Fuerst Heinrich x Dream Rubina, "Fuerst Noble" for sale

Hot in that, yes, he is a sexy boy.... but HOT as in it is really HOT in Florida right now! 

Fuerst Noble by Fuerst Heinrich out of Dream Rubina (Dream of Glory - Rubinstein)

SO here is a short overview of Noble. Taken yesterday, 100+ degrees …… he will be 6 months old July 1st. That IS Dream Rubina with him.
You can see his excellent Oldenburg type, very much like Furst Heinrich, but also stamped by his good Mama. He has her big, powerful, loose walk; her very good topline; he has very good joints (substance). Like Rubina, joints are clean and strong, not heavy but proportionate to body size. I anticipate that he will have the mentality and hind leg carrying power to train up the levels and be very consistent. Can’t beat these bloodlines for willingness to work and hardiness. 

I know that he is butt high, but there just is not a perfect time to video youngsters after 3 months! 

I would love to see him have a chance at a competition career and to be able to continue the little dynasty that Dream Rubina has started. His big brother, Qredit  (Quaterback x Dream Rubina)is doing Prix St. Georges now, and HIlltop and Michael are very pleased with him and the extra quality of his collected gaits. W. Ellington in Australia continues to excel in competition and is 4th level, schooling the Prix St. Georges now. Apollo is in the good hands of JJ Tate….. so I hope that this year’s foals of Rubina can join the competition ranks someday.

Just LOOK How "Fuerst Noble" has grown into such a fine young man!

A picture is worth a thousand words...... so several photos must be worth....... what??! 

NOBLE is really developing into the young stallion prospect that I anticipated. Being by the memorable sire, FUERST HEINRICH , he had some big horseshoes to fill, but I believe he will do his Daddy proud! 

And I am proud to offer him for sale to that someone special that relishes his bloodlines and has dreams and hopes and aspirations for the future of this wonderful colt.

And kudos to TRIBUTE Foal Milk Replacer pellets and what I call "Bucket Milk"(Powder)! Noble was orphaned by his sweet recipient Mom when he was 7 weeks old. His real biological dam, Dream Rubina (Dream of Glory - Rubinstein) has raised him, giving him comfort, strength and discipline. But all the food was Tribute.

Going to be one tall fella!
NOBLE is very intelligent, clear in his mind, with the great temperament that Dream Rubina's foals are known for. 

His conformation is super correct, with nice sized joints, good hooves and strong muscling. 

This is a seriously honest and high quality prospect that I would be proud to see in a good program .
