Zangersheide Netherlands foal champions

Fillies champion Chanegie LN Z (Chacco-Blue)

Over 40 foals were presented at the Hippisch Centrum de Ankerhal in Saasveld, which hosted the Zangersheide Netherlands foal championship. Many were carrying the blood of Zangersheide's own stallions and, like in Germany, Heinz Meyer was on jury duty assisted by Tom Lemmens as they assessed for correctness, movement, type, overall impression and dam line.

Among the fillies, the strongest impression came from Chanegie LN Z (Chacco-Blue - Carnegie x Cardento VDL), bred by Louise Nyberg of LN Horses.

Zangersheide stallions dominated among the colts, with victory going to All In Z (Aganix du Seigneur Z x Caretino), bred by A. Van Diepen.

A full report from the Zangersheide Netherlands foal championship will appear in the August 2024 issue of World Breeding News.
