IT DOESN'T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS!
Bliss MF has extremely sought
after bloodlines on both sides of his pedigree. Sire, Balou du Rouet, has it all. In Vechta (GER)
2002 Balou's excellent stallion performance test garnered him jumping marks of 9,5 and 10,0 by the international
judges. Then in Vechta 2003 he got the 1C "Hauptprämie" at the stallion approval. This title is awarded
to the four-and-a-half-year-old stallion, whose performance results, his own developement as a breeding and performing stallion
were as convincing as his first foal croup. At the foal-elite auction he sired the most expensive foal, Baltic King.
The brown stallion was auctioned for € 19.000. In 2005 Balou caught everyone’s attention
by scoring the highest mark of 9.2 at the national championships, making him one of Germany’s top 4 licensed stallions.
Balou du Rouet emphasises his dominant quality as a producer in type, elegance and movement, with numerous foals at many different
auctions. He continuously produces finalists for the German foal championships. Offspring of Balou du Rouet have been approved
at almost every stallion licensing – most notably the licensed “BE BRAVO”, who sold for € 350.000 as
the most expensive horse of the 2007 AOS auction. His number of approved sons has amounted to over thirty stallions. His sire
is Baloubet du Rouet - Gold Medallist at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens
and an incredible three-time World Cup Champion – is one of the most successful jumping stallions
in the world. His grand sire Galoubet is a son of the great stallion Almé and was
already an international success at the young age of seven. He won team gold in 1982 at the World Championships.
On the dam’s side, Balou du Rouet is directly related to the founder of the bloodline, Cor de la Bryere,
from Holstein through Rantzau xx. The offspring of the dam’s sire, Continue, achieved
lifetime earnings of over € 230.000. Numerous licensed stallions are descendents from this dam line. Balou du Rouet is
continuing with his picture perfect career: after winning one young horse class after another and gaining marks up to
10.0 in his 30-day test, Balou du Rouet is now successfully competing at the 1.50m level.
