2017 Bay Oldenburg GOV Colt
Foal of Distinction & Premium Foal Award
This massive bay colt is a powerhouse! He is confident, bold and very self-assured. He has a stretchy trot with tons of freedom through the shoulder, lots of lift in the trot, a good walk and round canter. He has super flexion in his hocks, using her hind end very well with plenty of suspension. This colt is a good choice for the amateur rider or a trainer looking for an FEI prospect. He was born April 27, 2017 via embryo transfer, and is pictured with his surrogate mare.
His sire, Fürstenball is a unique stallion with a maximum lightness and elasticity. He embodies the modern dressage horse. Milestones already line his still young career: After selling for a record price of 110,000 euros as an auction foal, he was celebrated as the licensing and stallion performance test winner in 2008 with a sensational dressage index score of 154,98 points. Fürstenball received a 9.0 or higher a total of 16 times and a perfect 10.0 for rideability. He became the Bundeschampion of the five-year-old dressage horses in 2011 where he received a 9.5 for trot and overall impression, 10.0 for walk, and a 9.0 each for canter and submissiveness. Fürstenball then proceeded to win the championship with a score of 9.4.
2016 proved to be a successful year for Fürstenball and his offspring. Not only did his son Fürst Fabrice get named Champion of the 2016 Oldenburg Stallion Licensing, but the reserve champion was the bay by Fürstenball x Quattro x Ramino x Herold. He himself managed to attain the prestigious title of elite sire by the Danish Warmblood society.
Fleur de Lune is a consistent producer with any stallion, and has produced only Premium Award foals. Her foals have been by Ampere, Johnson and Fürstenball. She is by the Elite stallion Feiner Stern, who sired 18 approved stallion sons in Europe and 26 States Premium mares. He received 9’s for trot, canter, rideability, and willingness to work at his 100 day stallion test in Adelheidsdorf, Germany. He was named Main Premium Champion Stallion of Oldenburg in 1987 due to his outstanding quality, performance test scores, and convincing quality of his first foal crop. He was known for producing progeny with very good foundations, good looking with beautiful heads, and very easy to ride and handle. Fleur’s damsire is the Elite Hanoverian stallion Diamont (Durkheim x SPS Babette/Bleep xx). Diamont was a noted dressage sire and was ranked first in 1994, 1996 and 1997 by the USDF among all Hanoverian stallions for producing USDF Horse of the Year qualifiers. In 1995 he was the 7th leading producer of qualifiers among stallions of all breeds in the U.S. He produced three licensed stallions and fourteen Elite Hanoverian mares. His offspring are well noted for being successful in all the sport horse disciplines including dressage, Grand Prix show jumping and eventing.
