Triskèle Morinda Z is the daughter of our magnificent Vision Morinda (renamed Re Vision Morinda Z) and Troubadour d'Aurel, better known under the name Troubadour By Wisbecq. She was born very quickly on the 25th of April, a week earlier than expected, and showed us that she possesses as affectionate a temperament as her mother. She is very at home with people, level headed and not at all wild.

Vision seems to mark her foals. Triskèle reminds us of her uterine brother Cantor Morinda Z, whilst remaining more feminine. Like him, she has plenty of bone and plenty of blood. And Vision, has transformed herself for the second time into a mother hen, becoming very nervous if her baby strays even a metre from her. She is a formidable mum, very protective, but that doesn't stop her being confident when we handle the foals.

The great grandmother of Triskele, Fantine du Defey, Elite CSO, is the grand daughter of the famously celebrated INULA, the grand prix mare ridden by Jacques Bonnet, and the uterine sister of that very grand champion, FLAMBEAU C, as well as other international horses (Roi du Manoir, Jupiter AK and the famous Camera, by Rantzau who has produced, amongst others, the stallion Muguet du Manoir).

The line of Narcisse

Her father Troubadour d'Aurel brings her the blood of Lord Gotthard and above all of Dirka (his maternal grandmother) who is none other than the mother of that progenitor of the breed, Quidam de Revel. What a pedigree !!!!

Here is a video of Troubadour d’Aurel, as a six year old :

As for her name, Triskèle, it represents a symbol which has existed in Celtic Art since 3000 BC. The solar nature of the triskèle being "generally recognised", it is probable that in Celtic iconography it represents the three points of vertical movement of the sun: sunrise, the zenith and sunset. Other interpretations exist : the three elements : earth, fire and water. It can represent the continuity of time which passes : past, present and future, or even the three ages of life (youth, middle age and old age). Or the "Three Worlds" : the world of the living, the world of the dead and the world of the spirits....

A magical name for a filly who is out of the ordinary and who anyway decided to enter the world without any warning signs : Vision (who would have been at full term on the 1st of May) and should have left for the Vet's to foal, did not prepare herself specially therefore we had planned to send her on Tuesday 28th of April and we were not keeping an eye on her at night. On Saturday 25th we found Triskèle already upright and in the act of suckling, her coat all dry. Surprise !

Triskèle Morinda Z, July 24 2015 :

As she grows, Triskele is showing more and more strength. She is becoming impressive. We will either be keeping her ourselves, or perhaps selling her to someone who at the least is competing at AMATEUR ELITE level (125/130).

Foals born in 2015 : Flamboyant V, UCS Vantage et Triskele, December 2015

As she grows up Triskele is becoming more and more beautiful. She is extremely big, being the same size as fillies of two and a half….who are not themselves small. Her size is very impressive. She’s very friendly but has a strong personality. And she has clearly inherited the aerial trot of her mother, with plenty of balance in the gallop. She seems to be an exceptional filly.
