CONNOTATION

..........................................................................................

2008 BAY HANNOVARIAN MARE

Lordanos x Calido x Sandro

 

Connotation is a true high performance hunter who combines a strong jumper pedigree with the movement and style desired in today’s hunter ring.  A tall, elegant daughter of the Grand Prix stallion Lordanos, Connotation had a brilliant career in the hunter ring with professionals Kelly Farmer and John French and with amateur rider Olivia Esse before moving to Three Wishes to start her broodmare career.

 

Connotation’s sire Lordanos has produced over thirty 1.60 horses, including Lordan, La Bamba, and HH Let’s Fly, and is the sire of more than fifty approved stallion sons.  An exceptionally beautiful stallion with three excellent gaits and a stylistic jump, Lordanos is also the sire of numerous high performance hunters including: Classified, Clearly, Cold Harbor, Remarkable and Golden Rule.

 

The dam sire of Connotation is none other than the Holstein stallion Calido, a stallion with a beautiful body, a lot of movement and an exquisite head, which he passes to all of his descendants. Calido was ranked highest for jumping at the stallion performance with a total of 140 points. Calido is credited with progeny earnings of 721,361 euro, with 496 progeny competing in jumping and with 98 at advanced levels. He has an FN jumping index of 144 and a dressage ranking of 117. Similar to Lordanos, Calido has sired numerous international 1.60 jumpers as well as many well-known hunter offspring including the popular hunter stallion Chaleon.

 

We expect Connotation to add class and style to her offspring and be able to produce equally well for the top of sport in the jumper or the hunter ring.
