Grey Flanell´s first crop of foals immediately dominated at several foal shows and auctions. His extremely charismatic and well moving progeny were awarded premiums in remarkably high numbers. 16 of them achieved auction prices up to 70.000 Euros. The average price for a Grey Flanell foal at the Oldenburg Elite Auction in Vechta was around 20.000 Euros. At the foal auction at the stallion station Schockemöhle, he delivered the top foal as well as other high priced foals. Grey Flanell combines a brilliant type and a lot of masculine flair, with three exceptionally good paces. He seems to have been born with a high amount of collection.
At the end of 2013, Grey Flanell performed his 30-day test in Schlieckau with strong emphasis on dressage. In 2014, he won Dressurpferdeprüfungen/novice classes and was the Best four year old stallion at the Pavo Cup in the Netherlands. Due to the scale of these positive results, Grey Flanell became the undisputed Dressage Main Premium Champion stallion at the Oldenburg Stallion Days in Vechta. The sire Gribaldi was champion stallion at the Trakehner stallion licensing in 1995 and internationally successful with Edward Gal. In 2008, Gribaldi was Trakehner stallion of the year. Primarily in KWPN breeding, Gribaldi sired top horses such as the World Cup winner Painted Black (Anky van Grunsven), the Grand Prix winner Sisther de Jeu (Edward Gal), Peter Pan (Beatriz Ferrer-Salat), Zardin Firfod (Patrik Kittel) and of course, the record stallion Totilas. In 2014, Gribaldi was the best dressage horse sire of the WBFSH world ranking list. Grey Flanell's dam sire Clavecimbel was successful in Grand Prix and sired, amongst others, the known sire Havidoff, who was also internationally successful in dressage. The grand dam Janoeska was successful at advanced level/S level show jumping and the great grand dam Zanoesk was successful in both dressage and show jumping up to advanced level/S level. In the third generation comes the significant Ferro, who can be seen as one of the most successful dressage stallions in sport of all time, having won the Silver Medal at the Olympic Games, as well as World Equestrian Games and European Championships.
Apostrophe, our newest addition, is a superbly built German Oldenburg Verband (GOV) mare born in 2004. She is sired by the imported dressage stallion Any Tyme (Evi Strasser), who competed up to advanced levels in Dressage and medium levels in show jumping. Apostrophe's dam, the German Oldenburg Verband imported mare Magic Melodie, carries some of the most classic German Oldenburg bloodlines, being by Figaro and out of a Westminster mare. Apostrophe earned her Premium mare title with the German Oldenburg Verband in 2009, with above average scores. That same day, she was also awarded Mare of Distinction. Before becoming a broodmare, Apostrophe actively competed in Dressage with rider and trainer Caroline Pépin for many years. Together, they were crowned Provincial and National Champions by the Quebec Equestrian Federation, three years in a row (2009, 2010, 2011), in Training Level, then First Level and Third Level. Apostrophe has been trained up to Inter I level in dressage. More about Apostrophe...
