2010 - FURSTENBELLE  FB  - (FURSTENBALL x SEMPERDelightful Dark Bay Tobiano filly born on 05 April.  This foal has been retained.

2011 - In foal to SHEIKH  IT (Stolzenberg x Escudo l) - foaled 06 June 2011, 2 weeks before her due date of 20 June.

This absolutely gorgeous 6 year old mare was imported from Germany as a weanling, where she had already made her indelible mark in the show-ring, having been very successfully competed with her dam.

Sempra was the highest scoring coloured foal of either sex at the ZfdP Landeschampionat grading covering Germany and Denmark in 2006, and then came second overall when against both coloured and solid foals, only being beaten by 1 point (143 to 142!) by a solid Consens colt.She then went on the following month to win the Bundeschampionat in Grasleben, Germany, easily beating off every single one of  her competitors to wear the Champion's Sash with great pride, before being imported to  the UK.

Sempra's sire is the very influential  SEMPER  (Sandro x Samber), the Oldenburg approved, licensed and graded sire standing in Germany. He himself is by the hugely famous Holsteiner stallion,Sandro, who is also the sire of Sandro Hit and Sandro Song, and who also has a total of 36 approved sons, 308 approved mares, and 27 states premium mares.

Semper's dam, Imago, is an Elite Preferent rated KWPN mare by Samber, the world's most influential and successful pinto Warmblood of all time. Semper is also the sire of Liz Hall’s homozygous stallion Sempatico.

Sempra's dam, Scarlet, is by Sambuco B (Samber x the thoroughbred Le Faquin x Enfant de Normandie) and the dam-line also has Trakehner blood via the stallion Rondo.

We rate this sweet young mare very highly indeed (as do the graders and judges she has been under thus far) and we have high hopes of a very successful ridden career for Sempra once we have taken a few foals from her -  she is the perfect stamp of a modern sport horse.

We hope to grade Sempra into the Head Stud Book of the Oldenburg Society when she has matured.
