On the 25th of May 2008, Opaline d’Ouilly foaled and gave us a
splendid stylish filly by Mylord Carthago. She was named Une Lady
Without surprise, Une Lady Morinda was not coloured since her two
parents were both whole coated. But we were over the moon to see
that she had inherited her father’s coloration. She began to become
grey: her coat, a sort of moleskin colour at birth is covered in
Opaline, who was a little surprised by the arrival of Serena, her
first filly, became a devoted mother. She adored her daughter and
watched her like a hawk.
Passing through her first year, Une Lady confirmed all that we had
dreamed of at her birth. She was quite simply magnificent. Big,
elegant, racy, and as well with a super character. We were very
proud of her.
Our lovely filly became the inseparable companion of Une Py Morinda
and she stayed with us until July 2010. After that we sent her off
to be backed. As always, she was super gentle and easy and on top
of that showed great scope over the few little poles she saw.
It was there that Aurelie met her and decided that she should be
her future mare. As Une Lady was still very young and her backing
was finished, Aurelie left her to spend the winter with us. Une
Lady and Une Py resumed their daily life (in the paddock during the
day, in the box overnight) and continued to grow.
Aurelie came and fetched Une Lady at the end of January 20111, and
since then they have learnt to understand one another and the
partnership gets on perfectly (see the very kind account that
Aurelie wrote us in the section “Our References”)
And at the start of 2013, we have been following the first
competitions of our pretty Grey. She is going to bring honour to
the Morinda bloodline and give a lot of happiness to her owner who
wrote to us: “I’ve never ridden a horse with such ability”.
Her uterine brother, Vostock Morinda, also shows an uncommon power
over poles: a very good base bloodline and we count on Mummy
Opaline to continue to give us excellent foals. Since then Carpe
Diem Morinda Z and Conquerant Morinda Z have been born.
Cassandre du Fief
We no longer present the sire of Une Lady Morinda, the excellent
Mylord Carthago (a son of Carthago), the CSIO horse who launched
the career of Penelope Leprovost. The partnership brought back,
amongst other titles, the European and World Show Jumping Vice
Championships for 2010 and 2012.
Opaline d’Ouilly, a daughter of the excellent Uzelien (Muguet du
Manoir) dead at a young age, and of Cassandre du Fief (by Narcos
II) comes from an illustrious CSI family who have given the world
numerous stallion. The uterine sister of her mother, Geolinote du
Fief competed with Patrice Delaveau and Nicolas Delmotte (winning
more than 40,000 euros, ISO 162).
Opaline also gave us the very powerful Vostock Morinda (presented
in the section “References”) sold to a young rider who is competing
at Junior level, as well as Carpe Diem Morinda Z and Conquerant
