Stoeterij Zangersheide


Young phenomenon Rob Roy vd Bisschop moves to Stoeterij Zangersheide!

The black pearl of the last edition of Woodland's International Sales Rob Roy van den Bisschop will soon move to Stoeterij Zangersheide as one of the new acquisitions for the breeding season 2022. Thus he is, after HH Conrad Z and the favoured Holsteiner Hanley Light Z, the third new name which the studfarm announces.

Rob Roy, a son of Niels Bruynseels' Diamant de Semilly son Di Cantero van ter Hulst Z out of a mare by Jenson van 't Meulenhof, was sold in October for a record price to Pieter Devos who meanwhile made an agreement with Judy Ann Melchior for the breeding career of the exclusive eye-catcher.

"We bought Rob Roy for an amount that we don't often spend on a young horse, but this stallion was so special that he easily convinced us!" said Pieter Devos "We studied him very well and soon saw that the stallion has the qualities that I need for today's sport. We therefore bought him with a view to a future Grand Prix horse. An exceptional stallion like Rob Roy deserves every opportunity in breeding, so I am delighted to start working with Zangersheide for his breeding career!"

Judy Ann Melchior is also very pleased with the arrival of the new black horse: "We already approved the stallion for the studbook last year. He already showed a lot of power and quality and is a complete and very sportive stallion! In addition, his pedigree is also very interesting, which makes him a special addition to our collection for 2022!"

Rob Roy vd Bisschop Z will be available next year with fresh semen at a rate of € 1,000, this only has to be paid in case of a foal born alive in 2023!More information via
