Double the Love aka "Treasure" is a lovely, American Hanoverian Society main studbook approved mare who scored a 7.13 at her inspection in 2018. Treasure is by Not for Love and out of a Pulpit mare. She had a lovely colt by Valentino in 2019. She is currently in foal to Checkmate and due May, 2021. The resulting foal will be eligible to be registered with the American Hanoverian Society. Treasure is a very easy keeper (she only needs a ration balancer, even late into her pregnancy!... (read more)), and is very sweet. She had an eye removed earlier this year, so she is still a bit jumpy on her blind side and will need a patient owner. Prior to starting her broodmare career, Treasure was an easy going trail horse. It's a shame she was never properly restarted after concluding her racing career as she could have made a super show horse! She has a spectacular jump, as you would expect from her bloodlines. Treasure has not been ridden since her eye was removed. Treasure is up to date on vaccines, floating, and shoeing. I am selling her strictly as a broodmare, not a riding horse. She and her offspring sells with a guaranteed home for life with me -- I will always take her back if she needs a soft place to land.
