Here we go, perhaps the most exciting foaling season in all of the 40 years we've been breeding here at Ottoman Arabians! Here come the foals of our Ajman Moniscione Colt, Calypso OS… we've been waiting 3 years for this! (We bought Calypso at just 2 months old.) How exciting that the first foal is born on the first day of spring! Even more exciting, our dreams are coming true as we see the best attributes from the Spark and Ajman blood combine in these magnificent foals. And a surprise, not only are their ears hooky, they are triple curly!
Most of our Calypso foals are a minimum of 11 times Bask… others being more like 11-16 times, and you know what that means! (*Bask being the #1 sire of Arabian performance horses in the world, so these horses move under saddle.)
By this time, we feel comfortable enough to say that Calypso is going to be known very soon for consistently siring foals with extremely sculpted heads, huge well-placed, expressive eyes, accompanied with beautifully shaped, curly ears, and teacup muzzles endowed with paper-thin, enormous nostrils just like Calypso, himself, has. We are also very happy to say that all of his foals are coming out having absolutely perfect legs with a consistency that we have never seen before in any other sire in our 40 years of breeding and studying conformation.
We want to continue talking about how these foals move and have the same attitude of their sire, but then you might think we have become barn blind… But, then again, since you may already think that, we might as well continue by saying that Calypso crossed on our Spark-bred (multiple times *Bask) mares by creating the most beautifully high set tails that seem to “get stuck” in the "on" position once they get turned on.
We have many more foals yet to be born and we are pretty confident by now that they are all going to be of this exceptional quality. We are anxious to get these foals into the show barns so that we can share them with the world, and for that reason, we happily welcome all inquiries for purchasing these jewels of show and breeding potential. They will soon be ready to compete against the very best horses anywhere in the world.
