CHINN was Cloverlone's first homebred stallion. Sired by Champagne, only VDL Chin-Chin son in the late 80's, his pedigree combined fancy TB families with a cross back on the last purebred Holsteiner stallion, Fasolt. VDL Chin-Chin was out of a Farnese mare. To combine the power of old blood and refinement the Fasolt mare, Frascati, was Champagne's ideal cross.
CHINN produced many horses in all dicsiplines of sport depending on the mare type, fancy or not. cZappa, out of a grade pinto mare, was a famous jumper in Todd Minikus' barn and fondly known as 'the jumping fool'. He was also Melissa River's mount. CHINN's half brother, by Champagne out of Flighty Birthday xx, was purchased by Mr. Morton 'Cappy' Smith of Middleburg VA and later sold to Joan Irvine Smith, The Oaks (San Juan Capistrano CA) where he stood stud and later became Joe Montanna's hunter. Miss Julia, by CHINN out of a Locksley Spotlight mare, won consistenetly as an event horse. cZildjian, a champion hunter/equitation horse, was out of an app/tb mare. This is what made CHINN so special as a 'local' stallion. He could be bred to almost any mare and get a talented competition horse with a temperament to melt your heart. His get spoiled owners with qualities hard to replace.
B-Cinderella, prem verband imported HOL mare, was chosen on pedigree alone to cross to CHINN. She produced a colt and filly. Cezanne went on to be a junior mount with wins in all disciplines and Pristine is a broodmare for Cloverlone. She is reminiscent of her aunt Caroline v. Champagne and bred with not only the multiple crosses of Cor de la Bryere to Farnese but also Ramiro and many crosses to Cottage Son xx. Pristine is dam to two R-Saluut II foals and will be bred to Windsor's Qui Dandy.

Caroline, full sister to CHINN, was sold as a young mare to Joan Irvine-Smith of The Oaks, San Juan Capistrano CA. There she produced numerous IJF champions.
- Pristine v. CHINN - B-Cinderella, born 2000
Pristine is a stunning broodmare that could have shown in the hunters. Her pedigree has many strong sire lines including VDL Chin-Chin on top and dam sire, Corleone. Her refinement comes through two Thoroughbred female families; both approved in the first years of Holsteiner breeding in America. She is half sister in blood to Claussen, a former German team horse (jumpers), and dam to two R-Saluut II fillies. More information
