Koeur d'Alene and Chinook Pass
One of only a few Kostolany daughters in the OSB, she is a breathtaking mover with enormous jumping abilities. Started under saddle as a three year old, she proved to be as easy-going and reliable as her sire. She also was inspected by the Oldenburger Verband - which is not the ISR/Old., but the original German breeding association - and has been accepted as a Haupststammbuchstute (main stud book mare) there as well.
In 2001, she foaled the bay filly Korvatunturi by the gray Thoroughbred stallion Snowbound, sire of her full sister's 2000 colt Kunterbunt.
In case you are wondering what her name means: Korvatunturi is a mountain in Finnland and a small village, too. Of course you are likely to get snowbound up there during the winter. Please click here to find out more about this famous village and its most popular resident, Santa Claus.
In 2002, Koeur d'Alene had another big moving baby, the bay colt Chinook Pass by Contucci, a Hannoverian son of the Trakehner stallion Caprimond. Chinook Pass has been registered as an Oldenburger and received original pink German papers from the Oldenburger Verband. Chinook Pass has been started under saddle in the spring of 2005. Currently measuring 17.3h and still growing, he was trained and successfully shown by Bill Burke in Gaston near Portland,OR.
In 2008, Koeur d'Alene had a big moving and correct black filly by Rosenthal (Rubinstein-Karon) for Lisa and Chris Tompins' Synergy Farm in Arlington, WA. The filly won her foal inspection while earning first premium with the the German Oldenburger Verband - where she is registered as Kalendergirl (barn name Ruby).
At the ATA's annual meeting in Florida 11/3/02, Koeur d'Alene's 3/4 brother Kovington was approved as a breeding stallion.
