first turnout at 9 days of age

Description:   Just as our other Trakehner foals, this filly is sweet and friendly.  "Love" is confident and approaches us for nuzzling, baby kisses and scratches.  She is a large foal and even her large Percheron recipient dam had some trouble delivering her.  Consequently, she came out quite folded up and stiff.  She is straightening up and becoming more agile and playful. 

This is a tall and substantial filly.  Pictured above at 16.2 hh at only 28months of age you can see she is in an awkward stage. She is growing quickly and we expect her to mature at close to 17hh.   Love is a lovely moving filly with a nice floating trot and a very people oriented personality. She has more maturing to do so we plan to get her started with her groundwork in 2013 and begin proving her as a performance horse (dressage).

This filly's young sire, Blitz und Donner, was imported from Germany and is pursuing a career in jumping and dressage.  You can learn more about him by visiting his webpage at KD Trakehners.

Breeding:  Love is in foal to our Knabstrupper stallion Ambrosius af Asgard "Atlantis".for a 2014 foal.  She is approved for Knabstrupper breeding so her offspring will be eligible for studbook
inspection regardless if it is a colt or a filly.

Registration: American Trakehner Association.  This filly is registered in the Official Registry Book (ORB) of the ATA as a pure bred Trakehner.  In October 2013 At First Sight was inspected an approved by the Knabstrupperforeningen for Danmark (KNN) for producing Knabstrupper foals when bred to approved Knabstrupper stallions.  She is still eligible for inspection by the ATA.
