R'surene Kantamos arrived on June 9, 2014. Sired by the two time World Hunter Pleasure
Champion MEM Bailamos and out of the undefeated sport horse/hunter/in hand mare R'surene Carasu, "BB" as he is affectionally
called, solidifies the best of both bloodlines. BB gets his beautiful head and springy trot from his sire and the conformation,
size, and coloring of his dam.
BB arrived after a great deal of research. When
Carasu broke her knee we were informed that she had a 50-50% chance of carrying a foal to term and she would probably have
to be put down when the foal was weaned. With that in mind, we picked what we wanted for our one shot. That stallion proved
to be a golden cross with Carasu. Carasu was overseen at the University of Tennessee Equine Hospital from insemination to
actual foaling. For the last three weeks of her pregnancy she was in ICU to make sure that once she had the foal she could
stand and allow him to nurse.
Below are pictures of BB taken on September 9, 2014,
his three month old birthday. Chris is teaching him to fetch a ball and I wanted to share those pictures here. Kantamos is
special in every way and he has the Morgan personality in spades.
BB is being trained for pleasure driving at Tara Farm, Raleigh, NC. He will be shown by trainer Ken Swanson at the Southern
States Regional the end of May.
RESULTS ARE IN !!!!
