Dam Azemieka VDL is by the famous Darco. She just missed her ster predicate scoring EX 65/G 70/SPR 75 at her keuring. However, she comes from a very strong mareline, fokfamilie 452.
Grand Dam, Uzamieka VDL, is a ster mare from another famous stallion, Indoctro. Uzamieka's 2006 son, Bugatti VDL, was approved by the KWPN and now stands at the VDL Stud. Grand-grand dam is none other than Aziemieka - mother to the stallions Everest VDL, Glennridge and Arkansas VDL.Ella approx. 6 months old (Sept '09)
"Ella" is the first foal to be born under the Mikali Farms breeding program.
She will remain in Europe to grow and develop. Even at such a young age, the plan is to let her stay in Holland in order to present her at her studbook inspection as a 3yo, bred her for the first of our second generation (most likely to Cardento) and then get her undersaddle and to her IBOP.
Here she is, in the photo below, just prior to weaning.
I am so thrilled to report that Ellamieka received her ster predicate at the keuring held at HBC Stal (Boijl) scoring as follows:
Conformation (EXT) 70 Gaits(G) 75 Jump(SPR) 75.
Ellamieka is safely in foal to Cardento and due mid-May 2013. This will be the first second-generation foal for Mikali Farms!
Ellamieka is now at Stal M. de Boer to start her under saddle training in preparation for an IBOP this summer.
It is amazing the amount of progress that can occur in just a few short months with the young horses! Ellamieka has gained so much confidence under saddle and it was great to see her bravely tackle the jumps in front of her!
Although she has competed up to the 1.20m level, the decision has been made to breed Ellamieka this year and sell her in foal.
With her incredibly strong damline and athletic first filly, we feel she will be of interest to breeder and competitor alike.
I am happy to say that she is in foal to Carrera VDL (Cardento x Baloubet du Rouet)
UPDATE: Ella had a grey/bay filly by Carrera VDL on June 27, 2016. The new owners have named the filly Lamieka JM.
