Butter is a flashy filly, with good movement and a cute, efficient jump. I could see her excelling in the hunter ring, or being a juniors speed horse in the jumpers. She is agile and compact. Has 30 days of ground work including longlining and ground driving, and has had 4 rides under saddle.
Her sire is the Oldenburg stallion, Banderas. Banderas is the first approved son of the sensational European stallion Balou du Rouet, to stand in North America. Banderas is a very typey athletic stallion, with a lovely expression, clearly stamped by in looks by his sire. Banderas has three very good athletic gaits, and shows a huge amount of jumping potential, he jumps in classic form, and show a lot of scope. He also has a very good temperament and good nature. Sire of Banderas, Balou du Rouet is highly sought after as a breeding stallion, he is very known for producing type, elastic movers, and his oldest offspring are showing his prepotency for first class jumping ability.
Banderas comes from a very strong dam line through dam Grisette he combines some of the best bloodlines available. His dam sire is the legendary Grannus, one Germany's greatest sires with over five million DM in earnings, he is also the sire a multiple international and Olympic jumpers, including Top Gun La Silla(Jan Tops), Grand Plaisir(Ludger Beerbaum), Grannusch(John Witaker), Burmah Grand Slam (Nick Skelton) and Imperial to name a few. Grannus is also the sire of over 60 approved stallions.
Great Grand sire is the Elite international stallion Beach Boy. He has sired 8 graded sons who are already making a name for themselves and his own progeny includes the 1991 Oldenburg performance test champion Brandenburger, the international showjumper Beach Game and the international eventers Beach Star and Feldschwalbe.
His eight approved sons and 239 competitive offspring have earned him a BlUP score of 141 for both jumping and gaits.
