Victor is a brave, smart and athletic colt with a pedigree to take him to the top of sport. Victor, alongside dam Fetiche, were very well liked by German judge, Heiko Severit, with both colt and dam earning the sought after Verband Premium status. with positive comments on all of his gaits, "expressive trot with sit and elevation" and a "balanced uphill canter".
Dam, Fetiche shows incredible scope and jumping style. She is a heavier boned horse with great conformation, quality legs and solid feet. In 2023, she earned her Verband Premium status with Westfalen from German judge, Heiko Severit, with excellent comments on conformation and gaits. In 2022, she earned her "e-label" with fantastic comments by Belgian Warmblood judge, Boudejiwn Schepers.
Fetiche's pedigree is bursting full of 1.60 m jumpers. Her sire, Zapatero VDL, a son of the great Chin Chin, competed to 1.60 m himself and has produced numerous progeny at the top of sport, to 1.70 m. On her damside, Fetiche's family includes Indorado (Corrado I) and Libero H, all 1.60 m competitors. Her maternal family has produced high level sport horses in her direct dam line as well.
Sire, Visage van de Olmenhoeve (aka Copabella's Visage), has competed to 1.60m himself and has already produced many progeny that have also competed at the top levels of sport. Visage was born in Belgium before being purchased as a 5 year old and moving to Australia, however he would head back to Europe to continue his show jumping career up to 1.60m before heading home, overcoming a potential career ending injury to continue in his show career to 1.60m as well as dressage. Whether coloured or not, Visage's offspring are sought after for their athleticism primarily and we were excited to have the opportunity to obtain semen from this great stallion.
Winsome Meadows also offers affordable young horse boarding for our homebreds to grow up in a herd environment with pasture and top quality feed.
