A visit to Bechmann Stud in Karlebo

Bechmann Stud’s two mares with their foals from this year. In front Loquita and behind her Miss Valuv and after them the foals who are both fillys

Miss Valuev (Pistachio-Phoenix Phantom), who is a whole sister to Sazerac and Imaginenowar. Miss Valuev was a winner of Pompøs Cup

This photo is a bit funny. It is Loquita’s filly by Pistachio. She is something of a personality already and apearantly has been since she came out. The first 5. minuttes we were there – maybe a bit longer, she was up on the field by herself, while the others came down to us. It really looked like she expected us all to venture up to her. When that didn’t happend she galopped down to us, clearly and loudly protesting about the whole thing.

Peggy Guggenheim was a very gentle and kind mare and very social. Here she is overseeing Susie’s activity on the Ipad

Here you can clearly see that Loquita’s foal (the others will too by the way) will be grey. She’s checking out Søs here

Beautiful Loquita (Final Appearance-Cote), who was a fantastic race horse who unfortunately only ran for two seasons before an injury ended her career. Among her wins was Danish Oaks

This mare is not Hannes, but Stengaarden I/S is the owner of Peggy Guggenheim (IRE) (Danehill Dancer-Debach Dust) with her foal by Pistachio with whom she is in foal again

Daughter and mother

On the other field there was a bunch of mares and they had all been to see the stallion at Bechmann Stud:

Pistachio is on the farm and of course he should have some carrots as well. That went down very well. He was a very good race horse in his time and made 3.517.060 kr. and was bred by Lord Vestey. The poster describes his merrits and you can click on it to get a better view and/or enlarge

    Det er nogle rigtig tiltalende fotos du har taget. Også dejlig og informativ tekst. Ikke mindst fotos af Pistachio er dejlige. Alt for sjældent har vi mulighed for at se aktuelle fotos af hingste – det giver dog et vist indblik i dyrets liv og tilstand. Tak for det.


    Tusind tak for din hilsen Hanna. Det er jo hjerteblod der går i fotos, og det er skønt, når andre også har glæde af dem. Og at du også synes om, hvad jeg skriver, er jo bare perfekt. Tak!
