Cute Filly – we welcome our first Lipizzaner foal in 2017 in Piber!

Even in Piber stud it is a very special moment to welcome the first foal of the year. On Wednesday, February 1st 2017 at 00:30 waiting has come to an end: The newborn is a filly out of mare family „Capriola“. Mother Danesia and the foal are doing fine after an easy birth, both are in good health. A traditional name of Capriola-family will be given at the age of six months until the foal can be weaned off.

Father of this little charming lady is Maestoso Beja I. The School Stallion of the Spanish Riding School is educated and ridden by rider Marcus Nowotny. As all Lipizzaner foal the newborn has a dark coat which becomes white in the age from four to ten years.

This year we are expecting about 40 foals. For their first six month the foals are placed with their mothers at the nursery at Piber stud.
