Chestnut Hanoverian Colt – 036012 01-0956-011 * 07.01.2011;
by Lauries As x Remi Waltzing Matilda (Walt Disney I)
Our third attempt looking in Australia to purchase a complementary colt for our breeding programme was successful:
We came across Remi Stud’s “LION KING” a rising three-year-old colt by Laurie’s As out of Remi Waltzing Matilda (Walt Disney I / Mighty Kingdom).
The now famous eventer “Underdiscussion” is in his dam line closely related to our Lion King, as Underdiscussion was also bred by Cheryl O’Brien – but under the name of “Remi Lethal Weapon”.
The colt was started under saddle by Tor van den Berge and Remi Lion King arrived at Vollrath on September 24 – in time for the new breeding season.
He is a great character, loving attention and seemingly ‘human-bound’. A real pleasure to have and be around.
