Polartanz - an excellent all-rounder with a wonderful temperament
In Memoriam: Konvoi
One of the oldest, still active Trakehner breeding stallions in Germany passed away after battling a colic a few days ago. 28yr old Konvoi (by Kalistos x out of Komposition by Elfenglanz) died at his long-time home, Gestüt Frank in Bavaria.
Sire Kalistos x was an Anglo Arabian stallion, and the last active breeding stallion that the legendary breeder Clemens von Nagel (Ramzes AA) stationed at his Stud in Vornholz.
Komposition was a foundation mare at Gestüt Hörstein, and Mr. Diehm, owner of Hörstein, decided to breed his noble Elfenglanz-daughter to this excellent French sire. The result was Konvoi, who clearly deserves the label of "tragic hero" in the Trakehner breed. "Tragic", because his long competition career and the remote stations of his life kept him from breeding sufficient numbers, and "hero" because even with the few foals he sired, Konvoi made a name for himself as a top-notch sport horse producer.
His career began in Neumünster, where he was approved as a 2yr old. Owner Mr. Diehm had plans for the stallion, so he did not go to auction.
Konvoi returned from the 100-day test in Warendorf with a 4th place (128.35 points) and began his eventing career with Martin Plewa. He was later ridden by Olympic champion Ralf Ehrenbrink and finally Imke Karsten, the daughter of Germany's international top rider and coach Host Karsten.
Among the many outstanding results during his career, the 4th place at the National Eventing Championships in 1989 and the 13th place at the European Championships in Lausanne in 1989 stand out for Konvoi.
Konvoi stood at gestüt Hörstein, then Gestüt Forsthaus Papke in Holstein and finally since 2002 at Gestüt Frank.
As a sire, he produced around 30 registered daughters, of which several scored 9.0 for their jumping ability and potential at inspections, free jumping cups and mare performance tests.
Konvoi's progeny compete at S level in dressage, M/A level in show jumping and international eventing.
Thankfully in 2006, his outstanding son Gandalf (a Trakehner out of the Arabian mare Ghani Bint Khaled ox) was approved as the Champion stallion at the Arabian inspections, and has since then qualified for the Bundeschampionat in eventing and most recently also placed internationally.
Maybe in the form of Gandalf, his high-quality sire will finally get the recognition he deserved!
A truly outstanding sport horse sire has left the breed once and for all, with a pedigree of international quality and the performance record to back it up.
The Stallion Company
19 January 2014
Heraldik xx has been the most successful sire of eventers (and pretty good with jumpers and dressage), in recent memory. He's been the WBFSH #1 eventing stallion for five consecutive years since 2009 (2nd in 2008), and in the last two years has had double the number of points of the second placed stallion. Heraldik genes are therefore evidently vital in eventing breeding.
Most of the time, the right answers to breeding are staring us in the face, and this a reality right now. There is no Heraldik semen left available (I used the last available straw in 2012 on Butts Leon's mum), and so we have to find the Heraldik blood in his descendants. Fortunately, this is a simple exercise, and below are the three best (there are no better, try to find them) stallion examples of his blood:
Royaldik - whose mother is the full sister of Heraldik, and his most successful descendant in the stallion approvals (German Federal stallion champion)
Herald III - Who is by Heraldik, and jumped at the top level.
Mighty Magic - whose mother is by Heraldik, and himself was the 7yo world eventing champion.
