New Video of Whitman at 12 months old happily hopping over jumps in the round pen. This colt is a natural and a super athlete.
Whitman KBF is by the Elite Hanoverian Stallion Worthy Opponent and is out of our top-producing thoroughbred mare, Cody's Kisses.
Whitman is a leggy colt who should easily reach 17h upon maturation. He was bred to be an eventer, and his balanced canter and lovely conformation points towards a capable jumper. As an added bonus, he also has a spectacular trot with TONS of suspension, and we are confident that he can make it as a top quality dressage horse. This guy can definitely take an owner in many directions. Affectionate and sensitive with a comedic personality (he LOVES to carry things in his mouth!), Whit is friendly enough for an amateur, but also has the brains and athleticism for a pro. He is puppy dog gentle to handle, and he halters, leads, bathes, stands for farrier, and trailers without fuss.
Whitman is now 1 year old. He is registered/branded Oldenburg N.A.
His sire, Worthy Opponent, is a Class I Elite Hanoverian stallion by Waikiki (son of the legendary Weltmeyer) and out of a States Premium mare by the 2002 Trakehner Stallion of the Year, Hohenstein. Archie has a puppy-dog, amateur-friendly temperament, and his best crosses have been with TB mares. Archie was the high scoring Hanoverian stallion at his 2007 100 day testing, and reserve champion of the entire stallion roster, scoring an excellent 135.2. He earned five 9's in Character, Temperament, Canter, Jumping Aptitude, and Ability to work! Bred to be a Dressage Stallion, Archie has proven himself to be a magnificent jumper, outscoring ALL the other stallions at both the Hanoverian and Oldenburg presentations and rousing many compliments from the judges who were amazed with his jumping prowess.
Whitman's dam Cody's Kisses is an OTTB with AMAZING movement and reach from behind. In 2012, she and her filly (by Apiro) were presented to RPSI. Cody earned a premium mare distinction and was entered into the Main Mare Book, and her filly earned an outstanding score of 8.4 (Gold Premium rating), and was high scoring foal of the day. Moreover, we later found out that Astra was the second highest scoring filly in the ENTIRE COUNTRY for 2012!
He is still intact, but the cost of gelding is included in the purchase price.
