Died on May 22, 2007 (14 years old)

Swedish Show Champion (SUCH)

Florita was one of our most successful mares, with a reserve Best in Show at Bjärsjölagård in 2002 as her top achievement! At that show, she got 10 p for her type! Florita received a diploma at the age of three and won several gold medals and gained 42 p at the most. Florita was furthermore a Swedish Show Champion (SUCH).

Florita was by Furunäs Fernando RS 258, a double Best in Show winner with 44 p and also the winner of the Major Stallion League for 2002 & 2004, and out of Furunäs Benita RS 2736, elite- and gold winner.

 Florita was covered by Furunäs Bonzo RS 269 in the summer of 2006. Unfortunately, her little filly died when being born on May 22, 2007. Since the delivery was very exhausting for Florita it took quite some time before she had the strength to try and get up on her feet again. Since it would be very risky for her to continue to lie down much longer we tried to help her up. For several hours six of us worked hard on trying to lift her up, unfortunately with no success. Since her strength was gradually weakening we asked the vet to come back. She confirmed that Florita had become lame in her legs due to the delivery complications and that unfortunately there was nothing more we could do now to help her. Sadly, we had to take the very painful decision of putting Florita down.

Florita was a beautiful and proud mare. Her integrity always reminded us that to a big portion she was still a wild horse inside. She was also a very protective mother to her foals.
