This mare line is very consistent in producing tall, modern, outstanding moving offspring. Flawless has had one foal, a 15.1+H spectacular colt out of Afghan III NTF, who is now gelded, but could have easily been an outstanding stallion candidate. We have had our eye on this beautiful mare for quite a while, and are grateful to John and Judy for allowing us to purchase her!

AUGUST 2005-NEWS UPDATE: R Noble Rose APF ties for the 3rd highest rating of all classified horses throughout the United States in the 2005 Inspection and Classification Tour!
Rosie received a 78-SILVER classified by the American Haflinger Registry to World Haflinger Federation Standards. Her scores are as follows:
Type:8, Head:8, Neck:8, Forehand:8, MidSection:8, Hindquarters:7, Front Legs:8, Hind Legs:8, Correctness of Movement:7, Overall Movement:8, TOTAL: 78
Since Rosie had a late foal, she was unfortunately, not as muscled up as we would have like, so she only received a 7 on hindquarters due to insufficient muscling. (Anyone who has seen Rosie in person knows that she has quite a nice hind end--if you will excuse our saying so!--when she is filled out and in shape.)
Some of the comments from her score sheet were:
"balanced, harmonious overall body structure of an all-around pleasure horse"
"long, flat shoulder in balance with overall body"
"back strong and well-suspended"
"clean, well-defined limbs, flat bone, forearm significantly longer than length of cannon"
Rosie is very deserving of her high score. In 2001 when the president of the World Haflinger Federation gave a clinic at the Tudor Oak Farm's Open House, he made the following comments about Rosie (then a yearling):
"elegant, and nice", "a very pretty head, very nice, big eye" and "fine, dry bones"
(left photo-Rosie in 2001 as a yearling with the president of the WHF)
(right photo-Rosie at the TOF Open House in 2002 when she won the Breeder's Award of Excellence, Division II)
We feel very fortunate to own Rosie, and are extremely happy that she is producing offspring who are consistently as good or better than herself!
