CCS Bilbo Baggins is a tremendous up and coming KNN stallion prospect!
Blasland Stables is overjoyed to be developing such a special hopeful addition to the already outstanding North American Knabstrupper Stallion Line-up. For breeders that prefer dark “nose-to-toes” spots, this fewspot boy will make them! Bilbo has been color tested to be homozygous for both LP and PATN1 and Agouti! This means he will produce 100% full or near full leopard foals even out of solid mares, so if you are looking for that super flashy foal with a leopard suit this little guy can make that happen! He will be presented to KNN for licensing when he comes of age.
Watch out for this little guy in the future!
The Bilbo is an ideal percentage thoroughbred via his dam, providing agile blood for eventing mares or stockier heavy mares that need height and lightening. He moves really well and balanced for a massive boy who should top out around 17hh.
The Bilbo already has the size that is dependably seen in the Middlesom horses through his sire, The Monarch – linebred to the 16.3H stallion Xanthos, who started his own line of sport type Knabstruppers. Xanthos KNN 112 competed successfully in dressage in Denmark and has sired offspring that compete at International level including the stallion Zanko, a multi Olympic Gold Medal winner in paralympic dressage. Xanthos was awarded a silver medal for his offspring by the KNN.
We are looking forward to an exciting future with this very special Knabstrupper colt!
