Growing Up

Caramel 4mosOur beautiful first born Durango La Silla (Darchin) x Charisma 57 filly is growing up. Caramel poses here for her portrait at the age of 4 months, taken as soon as all her baby hair had shed out.

And Caramel sends kudos to her illustrious relatives. To her uncle, dressage superstar Ravel ridden by Steffen Peters on his World Cup win in dressage this past April and more recently his spectacular sweep at the World Equestrian Festival, CHIO Aachen!  Ravel is sired by Contango, also the sire of Caramel’s dam Charisma 57.

And to her aunt, McLain Ward’s veteran superstar Sapphire on her 2nd place finish at the World Cup in April, as well as her many other successes including double Olympic gold. Sapphire is sired by Darco, also the sire of Caramel’s sire Darchin.
