Apollon - Sire of the first Knabstrupper foals born in North America - our own fillies Macarn's American Beauty and Macarn's First Encore, born in 2002 and produced from frozen semen from Germany.  After passing his grading in Denmark APOLLON was originally used at stud there. After winning his stallion testing at Vilhelmsborg 1989 this stallion combined a stud duties with a highly successful competition career, winning not only Dressage and Showjumping to M level, but also M Eventing. Because of his quality as stallion he was awarded the Gold Medal as best Knabstrupper stallion at the 1990 Danish Agriculture Fair (equivalent with the German DLG), a rare and distinguised achievement for any horse, let alone a spotted one. In 1995 Apollon appeared on the German Scene and promptly won Premium graded status at the ZfDP grading in Lentföhrden. His sire ZORRO is a Knabstrupp of the modern Sporthorse type and himself a descendant of the famous Arab stallion POMERANETS OX, who also sired the stallion Hockey II (sire of the international star Showjumper Almox Prints J). APOLLON's dam SYMFONI is superbly bred Trakehner mare by DONAUSCHIMMER, combining such illustrious lines as ABGLANZ and POET XX. A couple of generations back we find the highly rated GUNNAR and the great grandmother SONETT, who produced the famous Trakehner Hessenstein and via him influenced an entire generation of horses. APOLLON himself has already sired nine graded stallions and further proved his importance as a sire with several of his state-premium daughters. Awarded ZfDP Approval for Warmblood Breeding because of his outstanding record as a sire, APOLLON is currently the only leopard spotted stallion with this approval worldwide. We have three mares back in foal to Apollon for 2003 foals. Apollon is owned by Gestuet Falkenhorst in Germany, but was sent in 2003 to the United States to stand at stud with Silverwood Farms in Virginia.

Apollon died in 2005 in California at age 22. We do have a limited amount of his frozen semen left.



 

*Bask++ - Grandsire of our stallion, Fyre One, and one of our best broodmares, Fancys Rosalah. *Bask was maybe the top producing Arabian stallion in North America. Great grandsire of BF StElmos Fyre, BF Fyre Lilly, BF Valentine Fyre, BF Fyrecracker, and BF Darq Fyre. *Bask++was one of the greatest Kuhailan horses of our lifetime. He was also more than just a horse. He was proof that the Kuhailan Arabian of story and legend still has the power to create legends in a modern world. The rarest form of the Arabian left to us by the Bedouin tribes, the Kuhailan horse embodies an ideal of athletic ability and beauty that has inspired the imagination of many people and civilizations. The qualities *Bask++ bestowed upon his foals continue to guide us towards the standard he shared in his lifetime...a standard set milleniums ago in the Arabian desert.

Due to this performance, in combination with a convincing first crop, as well as his impressive appearance (type and trot), he was awarded the title of Main Premium Champion Stallion in Oldenburg (1987).  His first batch of foals brought 4 approved sons, among them Feinbrand, the first vice champion, and Fair Play, the second vice champion of the 1989 stallion approvals in Oldenburg. The FN breeding value lists Feiner Stern with a strongly secured breeding value for dressage, which counts him among the top sires Germany-wide.  We have several foals by Feiner Stern.  Feiner Still, a 2001 colt out of our TB mare, Quick Northern, Fillistern, a 2001 filly out of our Hanoverian mare, Wallstreet, Feiner Fantasy, a 2004 filly out of our Hanoverian mare, Diende, and Fortissima, a 2005 filly out of our Hanoverian mare, Diende..  Sadly, Feiner Stern died in 2008 without leaving any viable frozen semen.  He will be greatly missed, but will live on through is wonderful offspring.
