Does the apple fall far from the tree? Cumano and some of his offspring
Thursday, 04 April 2013
In this photo series we will take a closer look at some of the sport’s top stallions, and if the offspring bear any resemblance to their sires! Third to go is the amazing Cumano (Cassini x Landgraf I), who was retired from the sport in 2011 during a lovely ceremony in Aachen – where he won the World Equestrian Games in 2006.
