Valentina van't Heike's super cute baby who is by the equally cute King Julio - out enjoying the last taste of summer at Jos Lansink's yard in Meeuwen, Belgium. Photos by World of Showjumping.
Two of this year's Cumano offspring.
"Last year I had fourteen foals, but that is not something I normally would like – it was far too many," Jos laughed when we met him at home. This year he had a few less.
A lovely foal by Jos' eight year old stallion Aganix du Seigneur.
It's busy in the paddocks at Lansink's yard! "I think the horses need to be outside, and as little as possible in the box," Jos said during our visit.
The beautiful outside area with views to some of the grass paddocks and the outdoor ring.

Told you he was cute: King Julio is a seven year old stallion by Jos' former star King Kolibri.
The main stable building.
The stable is very airy with lots of natural light from the windows in the ceiling.

The stallions have their separate stable.
Every esteemed showjumping stable should have a replica of the double of liverpools in Aachen with neighbouring lake.
The view from the grass ring to the sand ring. "One day I will use the footing here in the sand ring, then the next day I will take the horse on the grass ring over there and then the next day in the forest," Jos told World of Showjumping.
