Denmark HTF

16.2h | 2019 | Hanoverian Stallion

Desperado – Negro – Fruhling

An exciting new addition for 2023! The newly licensed Denmark HTF offers a pedigree aimed for the upper levels with both parents proven Grand Prix competitors. Denmark’s sire Desperado NOP has been a star from the young horses classes through the FEI levels. He was a PAVO Cup winner as a 4-Year Old and was a top ten finisher at the World Championships for Young horses in both his 5 and 6-Year Old years. He now competes successfully at Grand Prix with scores as high as 85% under top rider Emelie Scholtens. Desperado has also made a significant mark as a sire, with 17 licensed sons to date including the popular young stallion Ibiza, many top sales results, and offspring winning from the young horse divisions and into the FEI arena.

Denmark’s dam Uforia (reg. Unicum-D) was both a successful Grand Prix horse and exceptional producer. Uforia has produced the licensed stallion Louisville and her oldest offspring, sired by Qredit, made his FEI debut in 2022 and won the Prix St. Georges at the CDI3* in Devon, PA. Uforia’s sire Negro is one of the most proven sires for his record of Grand Prix offspring, including the Olympic horses Valegro, Everdale, and Fendi T as well as two-time World Young Horse Champion Kjento. Uforia’s great-grandsire Fruhling was an Advanced Level showjumper whose influence is well-established with 10 approved sons.

With a proven pedigree and exceptional character, Denmark holds much promise for the future. At his Hanoverian inspection, particular highlights included a 9 for his exceptional walk and scores of 8 for both canter and rideability. He is already licensed with the AHS, ARS, ISR/Oldenburg, and Westfalen registries and we look forward to his sport debut in 2023.

MARE INFORMATION
Mare Management Reminders

At Hilltop Farm we want to work closely with you and your veterinarian to ensure a successful breeding season and are available for questions at any time. The following information includes some basic suggestions as well as reminders on a few requirements for your breeding contract.

A Breeding Soundness Exam including a uterine culture is recommended, but not required, for all mares prior to breeding. If a mare fails to settle after two breeding cycles, Hilltop Farm will require a culture and cytology to be done at that time prior to any additional shipments of semen. We always recommend your vet checking your mare post-breeding to confirm ovulation. If a mare hangs on to a follicle longer than expected, it can be less expensive to ship additional semen than it would be to breed a second complete cycle. Getting your mare settled in foal is just the beginning. We recommend multiple pregnancy checks to help prevent cases of twins, misdiagnosed pregnancies, or lost time in the breeding season. The following schedule is what we recommend; only the first and fourth checks however are required by your breeding contract.

  • 1st check (Required): 14-16 days post ovulation – optimum time for vet to pinch off a twin if more than a single ovulation is noted.
  • 2nd check (Recommended): 28 days post ovulation – to confirm a viable pregnancy as the heartbeat normally appears by day 25.
  • 3rd check (Recommended): 35-40 days post ovulation – to confirm maintained pregnancy prior to endometrial cup formation. Mares that slip foals early may not come back into heat.
  • 4th check (Required): 55-60 days post ovulation – final confirmation of pregnancy in its critical first trimester.

Following your mare’s 14-16 day pregnancy check, please have your vet complete the Mare Breeding Passport received with your semen shipment and return it to Hilltop Farm. Any changes in pregnancy status after the 14-16 day check must be communicated to Hilltop Farm immediately. This Passport is used in all stallion reports to various breed registries and is used to generate a Breeding Certificate so that you can register your foal.

REGISTRATION & FUTURITY INFORMATION

Your mare’s registration and approval play just as important of a role as the stallion’s approvals when determining registration options for your foal. Please keep in mind that in order to register your foal with a specific association, your mare may first need to be presented to that registry for approval. In addition to the registries a stallion is approved with, there may be additional registration options based on your mare’s eligibility and the stallion’s credentials. If you are confused at all on registration options for a potential foal, please speak with Hilltop Farm and your breed registry PRIOR to booking your breeding.
