Foreign Affairs – For Romance / SPS Don Bosco/ SPS Prince Orac xx, May 8, 2017
Such a beautiful colt from Ditana! And he is the most charming and friendly chap. Same colour as mom, with the exquisite head and neck that For Romance seems to pass on consistently.
This striking colt was spoken for in-utero, and will join Formula One (2016 colt by For Romance / Contessa) in California.
UPDATE: Foreign Affairs attended the Western Ontario Hanoverian Inspection and Foal Show on September 3rd, and was selected 2017 Champion Dressage Foal by Verband judges Dr Ludwig Christmann, Ferdinand Haupt, and AHS guest Sandy Hunt, from a field of 17. Furthermore, a separate Hunter judge, Grace Wanyura, using different criteria, selected him as “Champion Hunter Suitability Foal“.
After the 2017 Verband tour ended, Foreign Affairs found himself not only a recipient of the Canadian Top Ten Foal Award, but actually the Albert Kley Memorial 2017 Canadian Champion Dressage Foal from the Canadian Tour. Well done, Frankie!
I’ve added a couple more recent photos, showing Frankie at a “young” 3, not yet undersaddle.
Videos are of Frankie at days old, and again, a young 3-year-old.
