ABOUT Freiherr

Licenced: Oldenburg, Hannoverian, Westfalia ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ PEDIGREE: Freiherr is regarded as one of the most influential sons of Furioso II, the Selle Franšais stallion imported to Oldenburg in 1968 by Georg Vorwerk. The Anglo-Norman sire Furioso 11 has influenced the modern breeding of Oldenburg sporting horses like no other stallion before or after him. More than 250 registered mares, about 100 state premium mares (6 champion mares in Oldenburg, i.a. the German champion mare of 1986 Ausnahme), more than 50 approved stallions (3 won the Oldenburg stallion approvals and the champion of the main approval Freiherr) as well as progeny winnings of more than DM 2.9 million are a unique success of a sire. Freiherr's dam Almentanne also produced two other approved stallions, the full-brothers Fiirst Agram (RhinelandPfalz-Saar) and Furl-Agram. Her sire Agram and Ferdinand are the basis of the world-wide reputation of Hanoverians as being the best showjumpers of the world. Agram produced the international showjumpers Anakonda, Abadir and Agent (who competed at the 1976 Olympics with Paul Schockem÷hle, and went on to win DM130,000). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ PERFORMANCE: Freiherr won the Oldenburg Stallion licensing in 1978, the next year he won the performance test, and in 1980, he was crowned main premium winner on the basis of his first crop of foals. Already at the stallion approval of 1978 Freiherr proved to be an equal to his brother, the winner of the stallion approval Furore. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ PROGENY: Freiherr can sire top horses.Impressive example are: Weltwunder(outstanding gaits, champion mare of her age-group in Aachen 1986 and dam of the premium stallion Donnerschwee), the DLG-mare Love Story, the champion stallion Feiner Stern the Dillenburg state stallion Frisbee, the Verden lot Fridolin (DM 100,000 showjumping star in the USA, D. McDonald) and the dressage hero Flashdancer. ridden into 6th place at the WEG in 1994 by the Irish competitor, Anna Merveldt-Steffens.. Also the International Showjumpers BB Freiherr, Flying Scott and Fiorucci 006. Freiherr's daughter Falaise was the reserve champion of 2 to 4 year-old mares at the "Schau der Besten" in Oldenburg. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
