2006 Bay Stallion (Balou du Rouet/Old. x Argentinus / Pik Trumpf/Holst.) Donated by Maggie Fullington, Marabet Farm
Reserve Champion of the 2012 North American 70-Day Stallion Test
Reserve Champion of the 2012 North American 70-Day Stallion Testing with a score of 122.31 (actual winner in points, 127.6 before 5% age deduction), Bliss MF was definitely the most well-rounded stallion, finishing second (by .81) in jumping with a score of 124.23 (winning score was 125.04) and third in dressage (by.31) with a score of 119.77 (second place was 120.08, first was 135.93 both with no age deduction). Equally as important were Bliss MF's interior scores: 9 for character, 9 for temperament, 9.5 for willingness to work, 9 for constitution. His movement scores were 8.5 for trot, 9 for gallop and, of course the score we are most proud of, a perfect 10 for jump. Born and
raised at Marabet Farm, Bliss MF has been the ideal stallion from the day he was born. His athletic ability was apparent very early on but what we liked the most was his level-headed intelligence.
His dam Ornella is the epitome of a calm, placid horse, with such beauty and strength of character. Her sire, Argentinus, is well known for giving his offspring great brains. He is also one of only two stallions in the world who have consistently produced International level competition horses in both dressage and jumping. On Ornella's dam side you have the wonderful dressage stallion Pik Trumpf. Bliss MF's sire, Balou du Rouet, is proving to be an outstanding, prepotent stallion with offspring selling at record prices and currently 9th on the top sire list for Jumping and 4th for eventing.
His sire, Baloubet du Rouet, is one of the winningest horses in history with three (almost four) World Cup victories and an individual Olympic Gold medal.
The bloodlines of Bliss MF are about as good as it gets and his own offspring are already showing us that he is passing that along. This year again, (for the sixth year in a row) all of his foals are Premium with multiple site Champions. Bliss MF has been producing beautiful foals who are turning into horses with incredible scope and movement who are winning in the show ring! He can produce horses for all disciplines, as he produces the power to do the jumpers, the quiet brain, perfect hunter movement and jumping form for the hunters and because of his strong hind end movement excellent dressage horses. Combining all this, he is proving to be producing eventing horses too!
This is a stallion who has it all and will pass it on to your foals.
