NEW NORMANDY FARM
B R E E D I N G S H O W R E S U L T S
Spoon is an embryo transfer foal. She started her jumping career at 5YO, competed in the French Young horse series, was injured shortly after and began her second life as a Broodmare.
However, New Normandy Farm closely follows her twin sister Synapse de Blondel’s career who competed in the US at 1.50m. Both sisters were imported in the US through 2 different channels. What a coincidence!
Spoon carries in her pedigree two very influential breeding lines: the one from Jalisco on her sire side and the one from Quidam de Revel on her dam line.
Her sire Ideal de la Loge (ISO 182 - top 1% SF studbook) is a great international performer and quality producer (CSIO winner) with an exceptionally long international career. Ideal de la Loge, under the saddle of Roger-Yves BOST, was very frequently ranked in international official competitions CSIO *****, Grand Prix and Nation Cups. He has placed for several years at the top of the World ranking list of performance stallions. In 2009, he was ranked “Best French performance stallion” by winnings. Ideal de la Loge has totalized more than EUR1,000,000 ($ 1,400.000) in prize money.
To name a few of his accomplishments: Winner of the CSI ***** Bordeaux Grand Prix , Winner of the Meydan FEI Nation Cup, winner of the CSIO***** in Aachen: Grand Prix de l’Europe, Winner of CSIO ***** Hickstead Grand Prix, Winner of the CSI**** Maastricht Grand Prix, Winner of the CSI**** Arezzo Grand Prix, Winner of the CSI**** La Corunna Grand Prix, Winner of the CSI***** Global Champion Tour Grand Prix in Cannes In 2010, Ideal de la Loge ranked in the top 20 list of the best young horse sires.
His first crops are starting to get noticed in the European CSI scene (Barcelona, Hardelot, Aachen, Falsterbo, La Baule).
Spoon de Blondel’s dam, Nebra de Blondel, wins at National shows and in CSI* showing successfully in the A/O division (1m30-1m40).
Her dam’s sire, Désir du Château, combines the genes of a show jumping legend, Quidam de Revel, with one of the best dam lines in France, the Manuela line. This dam line has produced over 30 International show jumpers. Desir du Chateau is the brother of Sophie du Chateau (mother of Itot du Chateau). As of 2012, Itot du Chateau was the horse with the largest earnings estimated at more than $2.5m. Desir du Chateau is 16.3h, he brings size and a lot of “blood” to his progeny, but also his incredible jump.
Vigo Cécé x Idéal de la Loge
Diplomate was already jumping in 1.30-1.35m classes when we sold him at 6yo.
Daxibus Normandy x Idéal de la Loge
Imperial is 3yo in 2021. He is lightly started under saddle. We are so happy with this horse that we are excepting a full brother or sister in 2022.
SPOON (we did not choose this name!) gave us so far (2021) 3 foals. They are all absolutely gorgeous and have shown since a young age a lot of athletisme qnd very nice balance. Like all our foals, we did not seek to sell them asap as it is important we keep them until they 4/5yo so we have a good feed back on what our mares produce.
Flipper d'Elle x Idéal de la Loge
Hequinox is 4yo in 2021. He is well under saddle, he is a versatile horse who will be successful in either Eventing, Showjumping or even Dressage
