16.3 h, Grey (EeAaGg)
June 1996-February 2018

Registered as: Limestone Stable's Paisley she is our royally bred warmblood mare carrying some of the best bloodlines of both the Dutch Warmblood, with Olympic Ferro as her sire, and Holsteiner, with the jumping talent of her dam's sire Saluut II. The blending of these lines have made Déesse comfortable in both dressage and jumping. Generally speaking her conformation is more that of a jumper but she certainly also carries some dressage ability and she was doing quite well in eventing until her accident that damaged her stiffle. Since we aim to produce athletes that can perform both on the flat and over fences we see this mare as an ideal blend of proven bloodlines.

Temperament: Deesse is the kind of horse you would want in a jump-off! She loves to work and will always find more energy if you ask for it. She’s an extremely intelligent, social horse who likes to be challenged when in “work mode” and pampered when in “visit mode.” Being a sport horse, she requires a calm, assertive rider, and is easy to work with, very trainable and is always ready to give more. She’s curious and brave, with no spook in her at all. She has a lovely jumper’s canter and a good, impulsive trot. Over fences, Deesse is in her element. She has good scope and responsiveness. Her previous injury keeps her from showing all of her potential, but her impressive bloodlines definitely show and she’s energizing to ride. On the ground, she’s easy to handle and is very expressive and entertaining.

After only a few months in "retirement" we sadly lost Deesse to colic. She leaves a huge hole in our heart and we are so gratefull for the lovely foals she left behind as her legacy. Gallop in peace Deesse-we miss you.


Déesse is back at the farm after two years off. For her final performance she produced a lovely hunter/jumper type colt by the stallion Delta Force; a stallion with a very proven sire (Diarado) and out of a incredible dam line (Cassini/Lanthan). Deesse is so proven and her foals are always increadibly correct and athletic we were confident in selecting a young stallion for her and we are not disapointed. This colt is very solid but with the most amazing ajustable canter, already so rythmic and ballanced. We had him tested and he will remain bay. Plenty of chrome to make him hard to miss anywhere he goes!!
This colt sold quickly.


Déesse does it again, this year she was paired with the ubber-proven stallion Freestyle and produced a stunning grey colt. Divakar shows the impressive qualities of his sire and his siblings: great hind end, elegant top line as well as a proud dignified attitude. He's got plenty of spring in his step and a lovely friendly attitude.
This foal is not for sale as it was eagerly awaited by his owner.


Déesse delivered a chesnut FILLY by Wolkentanz II !!
He is considered one of the best sons of Weltmeyer with very high breed values adding type, excellent gaits, temperament and rideability to his offsprings. We are pretty excitted by this combination! Here is a video of Wolkentanz II
After a streak of colt we now have a filly by this wonderfull mare. And what a beauty! She is both powerfull and refined, ellegant and althetic. Very much stamped by her prepotent sire we are thrilled to have her grace our farm.
SOLD in utero-Congratulations to Sandra Prosko of Edmonton.


This year Déesse delivered a big bay colt by Soprano on May 17th. Soprano is well proven in Europe with numerous outstanding offsprings from his time at the Flinge stud. We hoped that he would pass on his longer front legs, agility and excellent gaits. The bottom of his pedigree includes some proven jumpers and jumper producers and therefore we think he will also compliment Deesse's versatile pedigree.

Determinato was born with some challenges and slowly overcame them all. We can see now what a nice colt this boy truly is. This is this year tallest and leggiest foal. That is what we ordered from Soprano and that is exactly what we got. The Sandro Hit lines come clearly through on this colt. Very ellegant, beautifull top line and good hindquarters and breathtakingly uphill. Mom trew in her determined and calm temperament, her noble carriage and her grey color.
We expect Deets to finish in the 17hh+ range.

Determinato was sold In Utero.


This year Déesse delivered a foal by Idocus in early April. We think that Idocus will bring some excellent sitting ability contributing to Deesse nice jumping form. Overall Idocus is a proven producer of both dressage and hunter/jumper/eventing horses. They are known for their excellent gaits and excellent minds. Hard to beat a stallion who at 18, went to his second olympics as an alternate. A proof of his constitution and character. Idocus produces outstanding sons and Deimos has some pretty outstanding "half-siblings" out there. Here are a few of them: Vinca Versace Oberon Roc USA Stacatto Opus Olivier


We are thrilled with Deimos, he is just what we were hoping to get from this cross. He is uphill, has beautiful motion, an excellent sweet temperament and he is as correct as they get. We expect him to mature 16.3hh to 17hh. He is a very big and powerful boy. For the first week he barely trotted, all he would do was canter. He could canter very slowly or turn it on. He right away seemed to have the ability to sit on his haunches and when he accelerated he looked like a motorboat jumping forward. We were thrilled to find him a good home where those qualities will be appreciated.
We got some update on Deimos in the summer: "Deimos is still perfectly proportional, beautiful, jaw-dropping and drool worthy AND ATHLETIC!!! The horses were coming in to eat the other night and John saw him jump across a small creek like/runoff, just a little thing, and he said Deimos cleared it by a good 10 feet!He also has this great action in his movement."
The last two pictures was taken at 3.5 yrs old, he was measured at 18 hh


Deesse had a colt
by Rubino Bellisimo for her previous owner.


Rosswell was bought as a dressage prospect by his current owner. She likes his physical abilities but most importantly his excellent temperament. Here is what she share with us recently:"I am absolutely and totally loving my rides/my time with Ross. I have so many people at the barn who say that he simply has a presence when he enters the arena (despite his young age) and that his temperament (again despite his young age) is simply fabulous. And I could not agree more. I feel very, very blessed to have him.Ross started to school flying changes towards the end of last summer while he was still in training but we have slowed it down a little. He is now 5 but we are not on a schedule, even though he could certainly progress faster."

Rosswell is now almost 7 in the last picture on the right. He is now 16.2hh and here is what his owner has to say about him: "Love my Ross. He is a hard worker, eager to please, honest and kind. We are starting to school 2nd level and I could not be happier with our progress. He's a total ham, very curious and social."
