Comment on offspring:
Flipper has a refining effect on larger framed mares, and as a result improves movement. In 2011 one of his foals out of an Alexis Z mare, scored TEN for movement in the South German foal tests.
His young stock ALL inherit his very fast foreleg technique, gallop and braveness, which is why he is now #3 in the French eventing rankings AND #3 in the French jumping rankings, behind Diamant and Kannan.
All his offspring are good looking.
