In 2002 we visited the French National Inspection of Bouan. There we were very impressed by all the demonstrations. In particular the one of a carriage with four approved Mérens stallions.
One of them was Kirov and he was for sale, because breeder Alain Bares had to import new blood into his breeding line. It was love at first sight. A week after the inspection, we contacted Alain to complete the sale as quickly as possible.
Next to Kirov, we took his brother and half-brother with us. We added another beautiful three-year-old mare, who had finished fourth in her category at the national inspection. At that time, there was no project plan behind these purchases, let alone a study of breeds. It was only later that we discovered the versatile qualities of the Mérens breed.
It is a horse with a beautiful base: an expressive appearance and a soft character with a fundamental bloodline. The Mérens studbook has no less than 40 members and 300 horses. That studbook complements our horse breeding these days.
