Gail Guirreri-Maslyk has been breeding Holsteiners and spotted Holsteiners since 1987.
"I bought my first stallion, Champagne, in the fall of 1986. He was a long yearling by the Olympic stallion, VDL Chin-Chin. Chin-Chin had been in Virginia for a few short months before being sold to Mexico where he made the team and was 5th individual jumpers at Seoul Olympics. Champagne already had a stallion son on the ground out of Frascati v. Fasolt. CHINN (farm name, Heartbreaker) was long lined and more exquisite in his looks and movement. Mrs. Joan Irvine Smith of The Oaks in San Juan Capistrano, CA purchased my stallion Champagne, yearling stallion Chamois (by Champagne out of Flighty Birthday xx) and a full sister to CHINN. I kept CHINN and he went on to sire many super junior and amateur athletes in all disciplines including 'the jumping fool', cZappa that was sold to Melissa Rivers from Todd Minikus' barn. Caroline, CHINN's full sister, produced many IJF champions for The Oaks and Chamois became Joe Montanas show hunter."
"The horse world may be the hardest industry to make a living. After an early success with owning the only stallion in the country by VDL Chin-Chin I realized that having unique horses made all the difference in the world. I chose the combination of Holsteiner blood and a unique color as American as the American Flag: the appalloosa coat pattern. I set out to breed world class jumpers, reserving my prettiest for the hunter ring, that would have my own trademark, spots! I have pushed the blood to a minimum of 4% as my most successful spotted Holsteiner breeding to date. I trust 2% and even 1% to be possible. These spotted Holsteiners are built with German stam female families, world class jumping blood top to bottom with just a touch of a color line to keep the spots."
"As a breeder of over 20 years I understand how important each attempt at breeding is. Whether it's breeding your mare or foal watch, factors such as mare's weight/diet, comfort level/stress and time can all play equal role. I commit myself to all mares, foals and stallions as if they were my own."
