Hello Oakley!

Oakley KVS arrived April 4, all long legs and curiousity. Oakley is by international 1.60 m jumper Phin Phin, son of Olympic champion Chin Chin. His dam Gazelle KVS is also by an international jumper, Cavalier, and out of our imported Nimmerdor mare Obligeant II. We’re so pleased to welcome this sweet colt!

Kalipso moves in...

In the first week in January, Kalipso KVS moved into the big barn and full time training. Arie, Dayna and Sara are super excited about this young horse. Kalipso is a 2015 Phin Phin foal, out of our Crusador mare, and currently stands 17.1 hh. Her Xrays and conformation are excellent, and she already shows promise of power and scope. Visit her training page for her move in pictures, and stay tuned for more Kalipso pix and videos in the coming months. We hope to have lots to share!

2019 expectancies

Knock on wood, 2019 will be a good year for foals at KVS. Five of the brood mares are currently pregnant, with the first foal due in early April and four more expected by the end of June.  

With foal are: Zinadine, Cirkeness, and Gaetana KVS, all by Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve; Gazelle KVS, by Phin Phin; and Anouk KVS, by Lincoln KVS (Cavalier X Crusador).  

Lots is happening at KVS this year, with Kalipso moving soon to full time training, and the one and two year olds all looking good and growing beautifully ... but here's looking forward to fun announcements, in 2019!
