Impossible. Milton was a gelding. Gelded in 1978 as a yearling by his owner Caroline Bradley.

simplyrenegade says:

Instead of ‘thinking’ why does nobody do research? He was only 1 of the many breeds you mentioned. ” Foaled in 1977, Milton was by Dutch Warmblood Marius, out of Irish Draught Aston Answers. His lines included successful sportshorses in both paternal and maternal lines, his sire being an international level and his dam a Grade A national level jumper.”

showjmping is very beautiful to watch, as is every equestrian sport – seeing the horse and rider working together is breathtaking. But there is just something speacial about Milton – thumbs up if you agree?

katnjas says:

There is a legend right there, thoughs jumps are huge! I can jump pretty high on my horse but not that high. Milton cleared them like a trot pole

Rimfaxe96 says:

Who cares of his blood? Horses need more than good blood to be so amazing like him. It´s a pity he was a gelding, if he was a stallion I would love to see one of his foals. 😀 Well, Milton is newborn, and his name is Levisto Z. Another white german show jumping horse with a really amazing character. x3
