Grand Prix mare Girasol has given birth to a filly through embryo transfer, owner and rider Morgan Barbançon Mestre reported on social media. “A star is born,” the rider stated. The filly is by the KWPN stallion Franklin, who was sold to foreign investors last year. Barbançon Mestre and her Gribaldi mare have been out of the lime light for over a year, due to some motivational issues. “I have had some starting up challenges with her, she seemed to have lost her motivation. We have given her the time to find relaxation, and it looks like she will soon be able to come to shows again. She is 17 now, and I do not want to over work her,” Barbançon Mestre said earlier.
