Sumrin Tulip Festival
Born: 19 May 2000, Deceased: 22 September 2022
Breeder/Owner: J. van Gestel
Sumrin Tulip Festival is one of the best mares we have bred. As a three year old, she won her class at a regional show. As a four year old, she has already proven to be able to throw a quality foal. Tulip's biggest assets are a very classical type with very strong movements. At the 2009 National show, Sumrin Tulip Festival was 2nd in a large class of 25 mares, only to be beaten by Vrilkhoven's Leslie (out of Sumrin Toendra). Tulip Festival has given the following foals at Sumrin:
2004: Sumrin Toscane by Mulligens Domeniek
2008: Sumrin Troye by Gulden Hoefs Vivaldi
2009: Sumrin Tatum O'Neill by Kai Midas
Tulip was used for driving in harness by the van Gerwen family in Wenum-Wiesel (my sister Luce and her late husband Perry). They have decided not to breed from her anymore.
After the unexpected passing of Perry, we decided that Tulip should come back to Sumrin to join Sumrin Saint Mary. She is now enjoying her golden years in Limburg.
On September 22, 2022, out of the blue, she fell ill and it was clear that she was in so much agony that she had to be put to sleep.
Her granddaughter Sumrin Saint Mary as well as her greatgranddaughters Sumrin Star of Hope and Sumrin Shine a Light are still with us.
