Foal adventure day`s
On a very special guided tour (in German; Audio Guides are available) the visitors get an insight into breeding procedures and Information about the unique form of foal rearing that is practiced in Piber.
Until today 3 fillies and 6 colts were born in Piber in the season 2014.
First foal of the season 2014 born in Piber
Healthy, strong and very curios.
On Friday, 24th of January at 23:40 hrs, the Lipizzaner mare Spadiglia gave birth to a colt. The little foal is strong and healthy and shows all the typical characteristics of the baroque Lipizzaner type.
"The birth of the first foal of the season is always something very special", states studmaster Harald Neukam. "A foal with such good breeding qualities bodes well for the New Year!" Spadiglia is a very experienced mother. She belongs to one of the most significant classical mare families. After his succesful performances at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, the sire, Conversano Toscana II, enjoys his retirement in Piber.
The little colt`s name is Conversano Spadiglia IV-84 - which traditionally consits of the sire`s blood line and the mare`s name.
We are especially pleased that our little colt already has his own personal sponsor: Mrs. Kathrin Glock, who is a real horse-lover. The sponsorship of a foal is a popular opportunity of learning more about an individual foal and its family. For detailed information on foal sponsorship please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
