Raffin's first foal the filly Fineska (by Fabuleux) was awarded Premium Foal Status by the German Oldenburg Verband in 2009 and sold at birth. In 2010 she produced a flashy (4 white socks) stunning Hanoverian colt Harlow (by Harvard) who sold as a weanling. In 2012, she produced a lovely, elegant Hanoverian daughter Havanna (by Harvard) who sold easily as a weanling as an FEI dressage prospect. Raffin recently produced another lovely, healthy Harvard filly in March 2013 who quickly sold at just 10 days old. Her owners are closing their program due to health issues. Her previous foals have been of above average quality, sold very quickly and easily. Her interesting pedigree is versatile and offers the Dressage, Hunter or Jumper breeder proven substance.
Raffin's sire Rodero is an Imported Licensed Hanoverian stallion who hails from the famous Ramiro line. Rodero is a very elegant and elastic mover with correct confirmation. He completed his Stallion Performance Test in Adelheidsdorf in 1998, finishing an impressive 6th out of 45. He scored equally well in his Dressage and Jumping index. Rodero was shown successfully in dressage in 1999 and 2000 under an FEI Dressage rider before selling as an Advanced Jumper. Rodero offspring have excelled in the Dressage, Jumper and Eventing arena's. In 2010 Rodero son Riddlemaster represented Canada with Rebecca Howard at the World Equestrian Games and Olympic Games in Eventing. Raffin's dam-sire Zymbal I is equally notable. He was Reserve Champion in Oldenburg and at his Stallion Performance Test in Adelheidsdorf he passed with a total index of 120.84. He scored the highest in the test in jumping with a 9.0, and received an 8.0 for Rideability, Ability to Perform and Temperament. He placed 4th under Gilbert Böckmann at the Bundeschampionat in the class for five-year old show jumpers in Vechta and went on to have a successful Grand Prix career. Weltmeister has sired 34 Licensed sons and over 50 Premium Daughters. St.Pr. Rudira hails from one of the most prolific mare tribes in Oldenburg, the fantastic Rudilore III line.
Raffin is an easy breed catching the first insemination for her 2012 foal and first insemination on her foal heat for her 2013 foal. She is currently up to date and vaccinated for Rabies, Tetanus and Flu/Rhino EHV4-1. Her teeth were powerfloated in the spring of 2012. She has good feet and is without vices. She has lost the hair on her tail due to a past fungal episode but this clearly does not affect her career as a successful broodmare.
Raffin is proudly offered For Sale as a proven broodmare with valuable bloodlines for dressage or jumping.
