30 Oct Anthem Deceased
October 30, 2012
Laura Kraut’s jumper Anthem passed away at 21 years of age.
Last Thursday, the famous jumper Anthem (Dutchboy x Ecvalan ster sport/sp by Triton) died. Laura Kraut’s former jumper (born with the name Jumper) had been at the stable of Frans Aarts and his daughter Monique since his retirement from sport at the stallion show of 2010. The family Aarts was also responsible for the training of the jumping phenom. In recent weeks the health of the gelding went downhill. After pain could not be alleviated, the decision was made to not let him suffer and put him to sleep. Anthem was 21 years.
