Notes: CHIANTI WF (aka Kiki) is a warmblood breeder's starter kit. She is a terrific mother, very fertile, and all of her foals have a friendly, manageable character. Kiki, herself, remains a fantastic mover. She has the most beautiful face, a trait she's passed onto all of her foals. She is easy to catch and handle. Kiki is a graduate of the Fall Classic Sale and was shown under saddle as a 4-year-old. She hasn't been ridden in the show ring, but has been loads of places with her foals and for her mare test. It should be noted that she still loves to go down the free jumping chute! Her first foal, O.BAVARIA, has a very trainable attitude, and has had success in both the hunter and dressage rings. Kiki is in foal to the wonderful VALENTINO, recently imported to Canada by Dreamscape Farm. Although the foal at her side is not in the sale, he will be shown with her to illustrate the quality of this cross as he is also by Valentino. All of this mare's breeding history will be available.
