KH Merlina is purchased to our stud because of her exciting and unique pedigree with mainly Russian bloodlines.

Merlina’ Sire Karnaval is a very significant stallion, bred by Tersk Stud in Russia -exported to Holland and later Italy. Champion stallion and sire of many good performance horses and in Denmark Karnaval got offspring like the successful endurance stallion Makao (Karnaval x Manoa / Peleng) and the stallion Vejnar (Karnaval x Verba / Murmansk) owned by Elbjerg Stud. Karnaval is out of the Tersk bred mare Karinka which herself was a superb racehorse and broodmare and Dam of the well-known stallions Drug and Kosmonaut, and of course KarnavalKarinka was also full sister to the Elite and Champion stallion Kilimandscharo.

Merlina’ Dam Gerlina is Russian related through her Sire Top by Pesniar, and out of the mare Galina by Levade, a stallion sired by the Tersk bred Naplyv. Gerlina possesses in addition to the Russian descent, some Crabbet blood and a little Polish.

Merlina is a little vibrant and excellent moving mare with a good foundation. A typical classic Arabian of the ancient well-known bloodlines and we hope she will contribute with a foal or 2 at our stud. Merlina is broken in and we purchased her from the Dutch western rider Johanna Vellinga where Merlina was used in the breeding.

We are pleased to add our stud yet another jewel of Russian bloodlines and with Merlina we have an exciting mare and we look forward to follow her in her life fall.
