The 4-year old KWPN licensed stallion Charmeur will not be participating in the 2011-2012 KWPN/KNHS Stallion Competition show circuit due to an injury. Horses.nl reported that the chestnut KWPN performance test winner and Pavo Cup champion sustained a crack in the navicular.
The Florencio x Jazz x Ulft offspring sustained a small crack in the navicular bone in one of his hind hooves. "it's nothing serious," says owner Nico Witte., "but we're dealing with a valuable horse and we think it's better to be safe than sorry."
Charmeur's veterinarian recommended the stallion to have total rest and put a cast on the hoof.
Emmelie Scholtens will not be able to compete the stallion in the winter circuit, but hopes to present him in the stallion show at the 2012 KWPN Stallion Licensing in February.
