Colt foaled April 5, 2012

Stunning premium candidate Oldenburg colt by Rodioso. His dam Witty (Weisswein) has done it again. This is her 8th foal and her third bay colt (he will NOT gray out) and we know from past experience that the bay colts are magic. We have named him Rex as he is truly the king here at Derby Farms. Beautiful elastic gaits with flying changes on day three
(see the video), correct conformation and a lovely head and charming temperament make this a superior foal. He will mature to be an outstanding dressage horse. Video is taken at three days old.
Sold at 4 months old!

Colt foaled April 22, 2012

This is a big, handsome Oldenburg colt from an outstanding
De Niro/Argentinus mare. His gaits are exceptional with an outstanding canter. Check out the video made at 16 HOURS old and count the flying changes! He has a charming temperament and is a definite premium candidate. He looks like he is going to stay golden chestnut with two even hind socks and a perfect star on his forehead. He will make an exceptional dressage horse.  Sold at 6 weeks old!

REVEILLE Colt foaled May 30, 2012

Reveille is the latest Rodioso foal born at Derby Farms at the stroke of midnight on May 30, 2012. This elegant expressive colt is a real eye catcher. He at five days old showed great talent for canter half-passes and pirouettes! Nice to have them born pre-trained. Aside from fluid lovely gaits he has a charming personality and is super friendly to everyone. His dam Oncoeur is a Holsteiner by Coriander a leading dressage sire with that registry. She has produced two fillies with top national scores at inspection and a colt who will debut this summer in the dressage show ring. Reveille is tall and leggy and will mature to be very elegant. Our hope is he can stay at Derby Farms and be a top dressage show horse. Photo is at 36 hours old! He will remain at Derby Farms and pursue a dressage career.
