2013 Chestnut Oldenburg Filly

Bon Balou x Finest Hour by Autocrat

Bounty was awarded a Premium Award as well as the "Foal of Distinction" Award at her inspection August 16, 2013.

This lovely filly has lots of chrome with 3 socks & a blaze as well as a belly & back spots.She gets this honestly from her sire Bon Balou as well as from her dams Grandsire, Furioso II.

Bounty is a nice combination of her dam Finest Hour by Autocrat and her sire Bon Balou.  She is classy and has a lot of quality in her looks and movement.

I can see her being a top quality hunter or a great all round horse. I can also see her with a career on line before she hits the ring under saddle.

Estimate of her mature height is 15.3- 16 hh.

Bounty's dam, Finest Hour (Flirt) is a full sister to Apollo (dressage), Aristo (hunter),& Aspen (hunter) all by Autocrat. She is out of Fern by Fernet Branca ( Furioso II) She so far is my only filly from Fern. Flirt also was awarded a Premium at her inspection when she was a foal. She is an elastic moving mare, with a lot of suspension and is rather an old soul herself.

Bounty’s sire, the approved Hanoverian stallion, Bon Balou, was imported from Germany in 2012.(see picture below).

He is by Balou du Rouet out of an Argentinus x Landadel mare.

Bon Balou participated in the 2012 N.A. performance test and was the Jumper Champion at his test with good scores for rideaility as well. He is competing successfully in hunter derbies this year.
