2004  Belgium Warmblood Grey Stallion  APPROVED ( CWHBA) standing 16.3 hands.

We are proud to introduce our new stallion “Cat Weasel Z” AKA “Catty”. Here is a brief history on how Catty came to Canada.

In December 2007, our son Scott of Greenhaven Stables in Ontario was privileged to join his clients on an overseas trip to Europe to search out young rider prospects. They traveled through Germany, Belgium, Holland and France and saw many fantastic and talented horses. During this trip he toured many farms and consulted with top notch breeders and trainers.

While at a horse show in Belgium he was invited to join fellow horseman and agent Axel Verlooy to take in the evening grand prix. The night was full of horse chat when Scott eventually entertained the thought of asking about a prospect stallion to breed on some quality Concorde fillies. Scott had a plan knowing that his Dad back home at WKM stables had a pasture full of top notch fillies by his Dutch Warmblood Stallion Nickelson B.

By fate this horseman knew just the horse. This young stallion had sustained an injury as a weanling that caused a broken bone in his back leg which ended his chances of becoming a show horse but he boasted a top notch pedigree which would make him a valuable stallion. Scott returned home after his whirlwind tour and immediately called his parents to discuss the possibility of importing this young stallion to WKM Stables.

Through much thought and deliberation, we (Wilf and Karen) partnered with our son Scott of Greenhaven Stables and made the decision to purchase this stallion, he was imported in January of 2008 and spent his quarantine time at a farm in Ontario. Catty made his way to Manitoba in April 2008 and within 2 weeks of establishing himself at his new home he was happily united with a pasture full of Nickelson B fillies.

We are completely impressed with this new young stallion. He is a true gentleman and handles like a dream. He has superb confirmation and a pedigree bursting with top notch horses.  We feel we are bringing our best of the Concorde, (Voltaire) line and introducing the legendary Carthago (Capitol 1), (Quidam de Revel) and (Darco) powerful breeding lines. We are very very proud of his offspring and are  BOASTING  that six two year old fillies that were inspected all went  PREMIUM.
