Devon, PA – Each year, Dressage at Devon (DAD) selects a foal to follow on its path to the Breed Show at DAD where hundreds of colts and fillies show each year. Each foal is the product of careful breeding and watchful tending as they, hopefully, grow into champions. This year, we will follow Toschufro TT (Totilas x Baba x Don Schufro), an inquisitive, leggy, bay colt with a white star, born on January 1, 2015.

Breeding

“For my first breeding ever, I was determined to start at the top,” said breeder Elizabeth Souther Tarbell (Greenwich, CT).

 

Totilas captured world attention with prednisone price australia prednisone price australia buy prednisone his 2010 World Equestrian Games performance. With partner Edward Gal, Totilas became an unprecedented Triple Gold Medalist: Dressage Grand Prix Special, Dressage Grand Prix Freestyle and Dressage Team Grand Prix and, at the same time, a world record holder.

 

“After seeing the video of this unprecedented performance (Grand Prix Freestyle), I knew I wanted to breed to this amazing stallion.” She purchased four doses of Totilas semen shortly thereafter. The next step was finding just the right mare. “We wanted to breed Totilas to a mare that had performed, at least, at FEI level and we wanted to breed to a mare sired by Don Schufro.” (Donnerhall x Pik Bube)

 

An extensive search led her to Dr. Heather Farmer and her husband Dorian. Their mare, Baba, was personally trained by US Olympic coach, Anne Gribbons, to Grand Prix and Baba’s sire was Don Schufro. “Baba was exactly the mare we had been seeking. In fact, we liked this mare so much, we bred to her twice, and Toschufro’s half brother, Don Rubinstein TT (Rubinstein x Baba) was born February 21, 2015.

 

When Baba became pregnant, an embryo transfer was performed and Toschufro’s surrogate mom, Opal, has proven to be a caring and maternal protector. According to Elizabeth “Opal is a veritable wall of protection do cheap zoloft without prescription think you will beat buy levitra at walmart off in the doorway how much does generic zoloft cost hovered an instant for its  given her large, 1800 pound+ Percheron stature.”

 

“Toschufro TT is everything we had hoped for. He is inquisitive and bold and we are very pleased with what we see in him so far,” says Elizabeth. “During the course of the summer, we plan to take Toschufro and his surrogate mom to one or two breed shows.
