Vision Morinda Z

Female Skewbald 11 years old 1m68

General comments

Vision Morinda (renamed Re Vision Morinda Z) was born in the purple on the 17th of June 2009. She is a daughter of Ringo and Scarlett Fontanel. Scarlett’s mother, and thus Vision’s grandmother, Fantine du Defey (Elite CSO) is the grand daughter of the famous INULA, the Grand Prix mare ridden by Jacques Bonnet, and uterine sister of that very great champion FLAMBEAU C, and above all of the famous CAMERA, by Rantzau, who produced amongst others the stallion Muguet du Manoir. One of the best Selle Francais families. Vision is the result of an embryo transfer which gave her a twin brother, Vidocq Morinda (ISO 125 as a five year old and today a stallion, sold to Belgium), born to another surrogate mother. She is also the most extraordinary Tobiano mare we have ever seen. She caused quite a shock when she arrived in the world. No-one was expecting Vision, who doesn’t have a single drop of Appaloosa blood in her veins, to have inherited a coat that is so far from the normal. She is a ‘fleabitten’ Pie, and the most astonishing aspect is that the fleabites, which are incredibly numerous, are also present on her blaze and stockings.


In April 2014, “Re Vision Morinda Z” had a well marked male Pie with lots of bone by the excellent Canturo. We have named him Cantor Morinda Z. This big colt is full of spirit and we are hopiing he is going to turn out to be out of the ordinary. Cantor Morinda Z, has been sold for 65,000 Euros at the Fences Elite Sales in August 2017. He is off for the USA.

Vision was inseminated in 2014 by Troubadour d'Aurel (Troubadour By Wisbecq), and a superb filly was born on the 25th of April 2015; welcome to Triskele Morinda Z, just as sweet natured as her mum. In 2019, Trislele is ready for her first shows and is showing an impressive quality.

In 2016 Vision was sent to a young 4 year old stallion whose papers had seduced us, Cambiaso Massuere. He is none other than a son of the famous LONDON (ridden by Gerco Schroder and named Eurocommerce London then Glock’s London). His mother is a daughter of Arc de Triomphe and Estrella Del Dia, who is herself none other than the mother of NERVOSO. We learnt with great sorrow of the passing of this beautiful stallion at the end of 2016. Vision gave us a splendid filly on 2 April, 2017, Houston TX Morinda, renamed Calgary H Morinda Z, with a chestnut coat and absolutely exceptional paces: she could be directed towards Dressage, even though she has evidently been born for show jumping. Houston/Calgary has a personality of pure gold, and plenty of energy

Vision is in foal for 2021 to the phenomenon ‘DIARADO’, a son of the founding father Diamant de Sémilly. Diarado, as many of you will know, has been called ‘the black diamond of Holstein’ where he gained spectacular marks when he was approved as a stallion. Their future foal should be absolutely SUPERB. And it turns out to be a Pie (Skewbald) will be, as far as we know, the only coloured Diarado.

And you’ll see that as well as Diarado being a son of Diamant, Vision is herself a grand daughter of Diamant through her mother Scarlett Fontanel, so the foal will have an inbreeding on the famous DIAMANT.

Her father Ringo, also carrying the blood of Furioso, is inbred on Samber and thus on Pericles. In effect, his paternal grandmother, Wanda, is the full sister of Samber. And on his maternal side his grandmother Cindy is a daughter of Samber. Samber has been called a “World Wide Legend” by the American Nathalie Kilpatrick. He reached Grand Prix level in dressage and as well as that level Z (BSJA Grade A) over fences. To this day he is still the oly coloured stallion ever to have been admitted to the KWPN stud book. Pericles XX (the sire of Samber) won many races and was just as well known in show jumping circles. He was named “Keur” in 1976 and “Preferent” in 1977. He is one of the two XX stallions (along with Lucky Boy XX) having the best KWPN produce.

Vision has an extraordinary maternal line ! Her mother Scarlett Fontanel is by the foundation stallion Diamant de Semilly, and out of Fantine du Defey, by Laudanum. Her grand-mother Fantine du Defey , classified “Elite CSO” by the French Haras Nationaux, is the grand-daughter of the celebrated Inula, the Grand Prix mare of Jacques Bonnet and uterine sister of the supreme champion FLAMBEAU C, as are other international horses (Roi du Manoir, Jupiter AK and the famous Camera, by Rantzau who sired, amongst others, the stallion Muguet du Manoir).

Her great grand mother Tess du Defey (daughter of Inula) sired several great winners, stallion and even a "Horse of the Year" in the US !
