The double World Young Horse Champion Woodlander Farouche and her dam Dornröschen will be bred to the Danish warmblood stallion Sezuan this year for an embryotransfer procedure.

Both Farouche and Dornroschen are internationally competed by British Grand Prix rider Michael Eilberg. Woodlander Farouche (by Fürst Heinrich x Dimaggio) became the young horse World Champion in 2011 and 2012. Farouche's dam Woodlander Dornroeschen (by Dimaggio x Caprimond) has been competed at international small tour level. Both mares descend from the same dam line as foundation stallion Florestan.

Both mares already have several embryotransfer foals by stallions owned by Lynne Crowden of Woodlander stud.  For 2013 they will be bred to Sezuan (by Zack x Don Schufro).

"We are proud and grateful that two such magnificent mares are among the many remarkable mares being bred to Sezuan," said Niels Grøndahl, who stands Sezuan in Denmark. Grøndahl also disclosed that a full sister of elite stallion Rohdiamant is one of the many special mares expecting a Sezuan foal this year.
