Tansanita Vom Castell. 1988 15.3hh OSB Trakehner mare. By Avignon II, out of Tansania, ATA Honor Roll mare. "Tansy" is a special, wonderful, cranky, persnickety old mare, and I love her. She has had a number of excellent foals and has been shown in dressage, with scores in the upper 60's. She had been my main riding partner since 2004, and has produced some very nice foals over the years, but now she gets to just be a pasture puff.
I started building my Trakehner "herd" in 2004 when I purchased my first Trakehners mares, Tansanita Vom Castell and Savana. Over the past few years I have built a band of mares that I am very, very proud of. I feel that I have one of the nicest bands of broodmares around, and I am exceptionally proud of them. All of my mares are more than worthy to hold the title "broodmare", and they accomplished that title by being lovely examples of the Trakehner type, and posessing quality conformation, personality, exceptional movement, exceptional performance under saddle, and proven bloodlines for long-term performance and soundness in the Olympic disciplines of dressage and eventing. I have downsized quite a bit, but just can't part with them all.
