Dam Prettify has produced one stallion, which was sent through to the second round of the stallion inspections. She is a daughter of Flemmingh who was declared 'keur' on the grounds of the dressage ability of his progeny, for example the Grand-Prix horses, Krack C and Lingh.

OO7 was selected for the performance test at the 1999 KWPN stallion show in Den Bosch.

Unique combination of bloodlines thanks to first rate sires such as Rubinstein I and Doruto, the world's best producer of dressage horses".
