Fox Lair News
Year end awards started to be announced for AHS and Fox Lair was excited to learn that we have, once again, won the Benchmark Perpetual Trophy. The award was given to License to Kill OTJ for the highest score through jump chute for the inspection year (9.25)!
We were also told that Valaena FLS tied for 2nd place in the 2 year old Futurity!
On top of this, four of Fox Lair's mares were accepted into the Jumper Breeding Program - License to Kill OTJ, Catoya, Classic Touch, and Calida!
This was a very busy month for us and is always one of our favorite times of the year! We again hosted an inspection for the American Hanoverian Society. The inspection was very busy with around 20 horses attending.
Highlights from the inspection include:
Classic Touch and Catoya went through the MPT where Catoya came out the winner! Classic Touch was named as a Premium Rheinland mare candidate. Both mares earned scores over 8s in the jump chute, which qualified them for the Jumper Breeding Program.
Valaena FLS won the 2-year-old Futurity class!
Quasar Blue FLS was named the Top Hanoverian Foal and was the only Gold Medal Foal!
Fox Lair acquired two broodmares late in the season so these two were unable to attend the inspection at our facility. License to Kill OTJ and Calida attend the MAHB inspection on September 25th. License to Kill OTJ was put through jumping chute where she earned an overall score of 9.25, qualifying her for the jumper breeding program! Calida was easily accepted into the AHS MMB. Since she has a performance career, she didn't need to prove herself through jump chute.
Fox Lair attended the Quality Auction for Zangersheide foals of 2021. While we had only intended on purchasing one or two quality fillies, Fox Lair ended up coming away with FOUR! Chades of Devil Z (Chacco Blue x Nabab de Reve), Alcyone Z (Aganix du Seigneur Z x Cornet Obolensky), Chapeaulora Z (Catoki Z x Chin Chin), Georgina Z (Glasgow VH Merelsnest x Air Jordan Z) all made their way to the United States! We are very excited to welcome these four fillies to our program where we can hopefully attain some embryos and where they will join the Fox Lair Performance team when they are of age.
