Sire - For Friendship VDL
Scope never gets old and that is something that the world-famous For Pleasure undeniably passes on to his offspring. For Friendship VDL is a typical son of For Pleasure; light-footed, athletic ability and good reflexes. At the stallion show of the Hannoveran Verband, For Friendship VDL therefore gained a positive result and was awarded as Premium Stallion.
The grandsire of For Friendship VDL is Stakkato Gold and this Hannoverian bred stallion showed off his great value in breeding the last years. Stakkato Gold combines the genes of the foundation sire Stakkato with the genes of the 1.50m-showjumping mare Wertherroesschen – a daughter of Werther out of a Libero H-mare. In breeding, Stakkato Gold stands out by passing on his fantastic way of jumping and reflexes to his offspring and many of them have made their appearances at international Grand Prix-level.
For Friendship VDL’s granddam Zaphira is a daughter of the famous Zeus and jumped herself up to 1.50m-level. Further on, For Friendship VDL’s pedigree is completed by the influential sire Raphael.
For Friendship received his approval for Hannover and was awarded as Premium stallion. He is a modern type jumper with a lot of athletic scope. He is light-footed, careful and has a great attitude. This strong qualities made his father For Pleasure to great heights in sport and breeding. Also in Holstein they saw For Friendship’s qualities and he got approved for Holstein as well. He showed his qualities again during his performance test where he was named the performance champion with an average score of 8.80.
