Premium, Foal of Distinction and fully approved and licensed stallion. Also a breed show grand champion!
I don't need 4 S line stallions, although I love them all- this one can be your breeding stallion and riding horse at the same time. FEI potential here!
April 2013: This is a stallion prospect that we are all excited about. We evaluated him free in the indoor and he took our breath away- WOW!
Fall 2012: I love this foal! We will see if he develops as a stallion prospect....
Birth report:The last foal of the year- number 26! PHEW! This REALLY tall colt waited like a good boy to be born so that my kids and grandkids could watch the birth. Plus, he was very accomodating by doing it before their bedtime. He is really pretty and correct with the longest legs we've had in quite a while. We've named him Shortstop, which obviously has nothing to do with his size- it's the position that my grand daughter Kaylee plays on her softball team.
Inspection and Show Results
Shortstop was licensed by the German Oldenburg Verband (GOV) in August 2015 after a successful show season in hand. He successfully completed the 70 day stallion test on Oklahoma in autumn of 2015, bringing him fully licensed and approved stallion status from the German Oldenburg Verband (GOV). He is eligible to be presented to many other breed registries (Oldenburg -ISR, RPSI, SBS, Holsteiner, Trakehner). He is sadly offered for sale.
Shortstop was licensed by the German Oldenburg Verband (GOV) in August 2015 after a successful show season in hand at breed shows where he was Colt/ Gelding Champion twice, Young Horse Champion once, Reserve Young Horse Champion once, Grand Champion once (84.775%) and Reserve Grand Champion
once. He was the 2015 Reserve Champion USDF Horse of the Year for 3 year old colts and geldings (79.9%) and
2015 Champion Horse of the Year for USDF All Breeds Award for the GOV. Three year old Shortstop was sent to the 70 day stallion test in Autumn 2015 in Oklahoma at the last minute, with very little preparation, one week before the test started because I was informed that this would be their last time running the test. He had been out of work because of a jaw injury and was just coming back to work when I sent him.
His scores from the stallion test include 9.5 for character and temperament, 8.5 gallop on cross country, 8.25 canter, walk and rideability, 8.0 free jumping and
7.5 for trot. His dressage index was 101.38 (6th place) his jumping index was 99.67 (5th place) and overall 100.65 (7th out of 14 stallions)- not
bad for a green broke, out of shape 3 year old! He came home from the stallion test needing his hooves balanced again, and therefore needing rest for his sore muscles. We put him back in work in spring of 2016. By mid summer, he was tripping. We had him tested for EPM, which came back positive. He was treated for 4 months with Marquis and as of January of 2017, he is slowly coming back into work. He has been growing a LOT, so we think that all of this down time has been a good thing. He has had time to grow and develop without the stress of too much training. He is a very easy going stallion, with a volunteer attitude and a good mind. I am offering him for sale, regrettably, because I don't need to stand two sons of Shakespeare RSF, plus Shakespeare himself, plus another "S" line stallion in Sir James. Contact me if you are interested.
