Bend Warmbloods are proud to announce the
arrival of our first foal for the season born 2nd
September. HB Lorelei is a gorgeous black filly
by Londonderry out of
Larundel Garnet (Gem). This long awaited
filly, Gem’s first filly, was quite a surprise!
We were not expecting her to be black. She is a
tall, leggy filly with a very compact body. She
is a beautifully natured filly with plenty of
personality. One to watch
for in the future, for sure.
HB Lorelei, was named
after a German legend. The beautiful maiden
named Lorelei, who threw herself into the Rhine
River in despair over a faithless lover, upon
her death was transformed into a siren and
could, from that day on, by heard singing on a
rock in the Rhine River. Her hypnotic music
lured sailors, in difficult waters, to their
death on the rocks.
Our Lorelei will lure many hearts!

Here she is at 6 months of age just after

Together, these two fillies represent the future

Bend Warmbloods are pleased to announce the purchase
of a beautiful young Oldenburger filly. Purchased
on our last visit to Germany at the Oldenburger
Verband Elite Auction this filly, Hirtensage, is by
Sunny Boy out of a Rubinstein 1/Tin Rocco mare. We
were very taken by Hirtensage’s Rubinstein mother.
This impressive tall, black mare was so beautifully
put together that we could not go past her filly
that, along with Sunny Boy’s ability to make
beautiful looking foals, has the attributes from
both of her parents to grow into the type of mare
that we would like in our future herd.
impressions were reinforced when we later visited
her breeder’s farm
in Northern Germany. Here we met the mare and filly
again along with 3 sisters of the mother. We also
saw Hirtensage’s ¾ sister. This 3 year
old filly, Hirtenmelodie, by Sandro Hit is exactly
what I envisage our filly will grow into.
Hirtenmelodie has just been awarded the State
Premium title and is going to the Oldenburger 3 year
old mare show (to crown Miss Oldenburg 2006) at
This takes place on 18th July and we are looking
forward to hearing how she goes. She was awarded
two 8’s and one 8.5 in her ridden performance test
in May. All the best to Christoph Tantzen and his
history in the mother line of our new filly is
fantastic. We were shown photos of the Hirtin dam
line back into the 1950’s where that mare won the
Miss Oldenburg title in her year.
We are very excited to have purchased this beautiful
filly and we look forward to her arrival in
Australia later this year after she is weaned. The
latest reports from Germany are that she is still
very beautiful and very correct.
