Waverley My Metall (2013)// A Black Oldenburg Colt.
Full Name: Waverley My Metall (2013)
Breeding Summary: Metall / De Niro / Banditentraum
Dam: El.(St.Pr.) Drogheda
Height: To make 16.2hh
Approved By: BEF Elite; Oldenburg Premium Foal
A really stunning colt by Metall, out of our Elite Hanoverian mare Drogheda (De Niro/Banditentraum). He won an Elite of 9.15 at the British Equestrian Futurity at 4 months old (the less attractive phase!) and was awarded a Premium by the Oldenburg Verband at his foal inspection. My Metall has inherited the compact, uphill frame of his sire, and his power and lightness of movement. His quarters have been strong and well muscled from the moment he was born, indicating the power to come. And he is so elastic and athletic. He has lovely correct limbs, a compact strong frame with deep brisket, well angled shoulder and a super top line with well set wither and neck. His trot has great cadence and power with expressive front legs and good hock articulation in the hind legs. His canter is balanced, ground covering and expressive, really bring the hind leg under the body. Finally his walk is swinging with a good overtack.
Metall, by Olympic Ferro who was famous for his wonderful canter, is the father of Uthopia and renowned for producing modern refined foals with beautiful heads and light athletic movement. Drogheda, a high scoring State Premium mare (with a 9 for elasticity and swing and all other scores 8 or above) was ridden until she was six and has already bred one licensed stallion and some beautiful young stock. She is sired by De Niro (who topped the WBFSH Dressage Sire Ranking for 2012 and 2013 and was 2nd in 2014) and grandsired by the exceptionally beautiful Trakhena stallion Banditentraum. She shares the same grand mother as the Oldenburg Brilliant Ring Championess Soiree D'Amour.
Based in the heart of England (near Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire - home of the British Dressage National Championships) we breed and train a small number of dressage horses each year. Using only Elite or State Premium Dressage mares of good character, together with the best international stallions (all of which are Performance Tested and proven) our stock is of exceptional quality and trainability.
Leni won the 4 year old class at Manor Grange yesterday with a score of 8.46. He was an absolute star. Thrilled with him. He has a real work ethic and three fabulous paces, so we're excited about his future.
