LIER – The four-year-old Heavy Metal earned a ticket to the third phase of the BWP Stallion Show last Saturday in Lier. Last year, this son of Eldorado van de Zeshoek out of the full sister of world-famous showjumper Tyson became the champion of the sBs Stallion Show. As a foal, Heavy Metal already stood out and was auctioned on Foal Auction Prinsjesdag.
On the BWP Stallion Show, Heavy Metal again impressed with his great reflexes, enormous power and scope. Heavy Metal is a perfect example of a product sold at Foal Auction Prinsjesdag; in addition to his great type and strong movements, Heavy Metal was bred out of a true performance damline. His dam Whisper Queen is none other than the sister of Leon Thijssen’s long term number one horse Tyson. Breeders Evert Meijer and Gerard Lindeboom auctioned many foals from this quality damline, including three foals from Whisper Queen, six foals from Kickyqueen – Tyson’s dam – and many others.
Besides Heavy Metal, many other foals sold by breeders Meijer and Lindeboom at Prinsjesdag developed to be highly successful performers. The KWPN-approved Edinburgh and still successful international showjumper This Lux are great examples. Heavy Metal seems to have everything to follow in the footsteps of his famous relatives Tyson, Nirvana, This Lux, Tadmus and Edinburgh.
