The chance to own a brother to two-time World Champion Woodlander Farouche is coming up next month at the Brightwells December Elite Auction in Buckinghamshire.
Two year old hanoverian colt Woodlander Freddie M (by For Compliment [Florestan I]) was bred by Lynne and Dave Crowden’s Woodlander Stud and the Eilbergs. He will be auctioned at at Addington Manor on December 7.
Freddie M is out of Woodlander Dornrochen, the dam of Woodlander Farouche (by Fürst Heinrich, by Florestan I).
“This is the first sibling of Farouche that we have ever offered for sale and our decision to sell is one based on the fact that selling horses IS our business, once we have bred them,” said Lynne Crowden.
“We always felt that at some stage it would be important to release these amazing bloodlines. Our industry is international and Freddie M will hopefully provide his new owners, and perhaps a new nation, with exciting possibilities for sport and/or breeding.”
Woodlander Farouche wowed the judges and spectators at the 2012 FEI World Breeding Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Verden, making history with the highest marks ever recorded. She scored 9.88%, the highest in the 15 years of the competition.
The British Hanoverian mare also won the five-year-old title at Verden in 2011. She is also the only mare ever to have won the competition for both age groups, and joins the elite group of double winners that includes the stallions Florencio (WEST) and Astrix (KWPN).
Auctioneer Richard Botterill of Brightwell’s expressed his delight in securing Freddie M for sale. “We are privileged and honoured to be given the instructions to market and sell a horse that is as ‘Rare as a Penny Black’.
“Woodlander Stud have been great supporters of our sales and purchased Farouche’s mother Dornroeschen (Dimaggio / Caprimond) at our Foal Auction”.
