Farmer was sired by the noble Voltaire, who had a successful show jumping career and is a product of a combination of performance blood that has made history: Furioso 11 x Gotthard. Furioso 11 can be called the Oldenburger stallion of the 20th century. He produced 200 national premium mares and 68 approved sons standing at stud on several continents.
Wulia is Farmer’s dam. She carries the predicate ‘keur’ and is by the celebrated ‘preferent’ Amor, a stallion that produced an impressive amount of prominent sport horses. Apart from good show jumpers, Amor also sired a number of remarkable dressage horses that made him number fifteen in the index.
At his performance test in 1990, Farmer proved to be a friendly, playful, alert, honest and obedient stallion that showed great willingness to work. He scored three times a 9 (for temperament, stable manners and the training report) and four times 8 (for trot, canter, jumping and the cross country). Farmer was the Reserve Champion of his year. He was described as a very talented dressage horse and a fairly talented show jumper.
Farmer won the Benelux Stallion Jumping Championship the same year. He was also 4 yo Champion of the National Stallion Competition. Continuing his success as a 5 yo, Farmer became Reserve Champion of the National Stallion Competition of that year.
In 1992 a uniform collection of Farmer products was shown. They were well-developed foals, with attractive and expressive heads. The neck is sufficiently long with a fine upper line and good poll, well carried in action. The jury had a lot of praise for the strongly muscled back and loins and the exceptionally correct, hard and dry bones of Farmer’s progeny
