89th Elite auction in Vechta

On Saturday, 6. October, the 89th elite auction of the Oldenburger Verband took place in Vechta, Germany. The Oldenburger auctions regularly achieve top knock-down prices often in the order of hundreds of thousands of Euros.

Our colt Cornet Diamante – or Caspar de Quidam (his auction name) – was among the top foals to be auctioned. His father is the famous show-jumping stallion Cornet Obolensky. Other famous names in his pedigree are Diamant de Semilly and Quidam de Revel.

The highest priced horse was the stallion Vivat Rex by Vivaldi - Samarant - Rubinstein I. He was sold for 200.000 Euros to a new owner in the Netherlands. The most expensive foal was Vardy by Vitalis - Florencio I - Feinbrand. For a total of 120.000 Euros this colt was sold to a famous stud in Lower Saxony.

Our colt Cornet obtained high bids but in the end we decided to keep him. You will be hearing from him again soon. Just watch this space! :)

Verden Auction: Our Gretchen has a new owner now

On Saturday, 13 October 2018, the elite auction of the Hannoveraner Verband took place. This was an exciting event for us not only because we are breeders of Hanoverian horses ourselves but also because one of our premium foals was accepted for the auction in Verden.

“Gretchen” is her name and she is the beautiful black daughter of the famous dressage stallion Grey Flanell. Her pedigree also features the illustrious names of De Niro, Sandro Hit and Donnerhall.

However, before the auction began, there was an impressive Gala show, which we were invited to attend. Especially the Baloon Dance and the Lower Saxony State Stud Celle performance impressed us. The Hannoveraner Verband is truly the place to be for horse lovers and equestrian sports professionals.

The auction began at 2 PM and because the foals came last we had to wait almost until the end to see the appearance of our precious Gretchen. Auction number 54, the bay stallion Quite Chacco (Chacco Blue – Stolzenberg – Athletico), was sold for an incredible 160.000€. The most expensive foal was Fabulosa (Depardieu – Wesley – Buenos Aires), which was auctioned off for 62.000€.

Our Gretchen achieved a respectable 9.000€. The auction catalogue mentioned her as dark bay filly but she is actually black. We also felt that Gretchen was not in top condition that day but we are happy for the German buyer who is now the owner of a beautiful and exceptional filly.

Stallion licensing pre-selection at Oldenburger Verband


Tuesday, 09.10.18: The stallion licensing pre-selection in Vechta is where the wheat is separated from the chaff. Only the best of the best will be parading at the Oldenburg Stallion Days from 22 to 24 November in Vechta.

Our two-year old stallion “Congratulation” was among the 190 contenders. Getting accepted to the pre-selection is already a mark of distinction. As a result, we were quite excited when we learned that Congratulation will compete in the pre-selection.

The first round during the selection was a free-jumping session. The six judges meticulously observed the young stallions’ jumping performance and – if they were satisfied – the stallion was allowed to continue to the second round.  

Congratulation passed the first round with ease. He visibly enjoyed the jumping exercise, letting off energy through very high jumps and some air kicking. His excellent jumping pedigree – his father is the famous jumping champion Cornet Obolensky - manifested itself clearly.

The second round consisted of walking on hard ground (the German term is “Pflastermusterung”). The judges would scrutinize the leg movement to see if the gait was up to their high standards. Congratulation proved equally serene during the second round and passed it.

The third and final round was made up by trotting in the auction hall (“Schrittring”). After a short inspection, the judges would pronounce the stallion as “zugelassen zur Körung” (admitted for the stallion licensing) or as “Reservist” (rejected).

We are happy to say that Congratulation was accepted and thus will attend the stallion licensing in November. However, it was not a big surprise to us, as we already knew that Congratulation will be among the very best in the future.
