"Harmonious overall, full of expression; medium frame, correct, medium strong foundation; breed type and characteristics clearly evident; well muscled body, compact and tautly textured; type of the multifaceted performance horse that could have a bit more masculinity. "Avignon died in 2002 at Castell Imperator Hof.
"Exemplary model with much significance in the whole appearance. Typey head; good neck; well-positioned, broad, and well-muscled shoulder; good and uniformily conditioned body. Strong and correct in the foundation with good, straight movement. The stallion has proven himself to be a predictable, above-average sire."Performance tested at Westercelle 1968, Flaneur was highly scored and described as follows:
"Quiet, very balanced temperament, playful but good in character. Constitution tight and firm. Good rideability, balanced, uncomplicated and comfortable to ride. Better than average jumping ability; good overall performance ability; good ground-covering walk, swinging and correct trot, well-balanced loose canter. A stallion with many possibilities."He was a successful eventer and spent most of his life in the care of Ilka-Ilona Wenzel. His impact on the Trakehner breed is great, having sired 15 graded stallions in Germany (the most important generally considered to be AROGNO) and 106 Stud Book daughters, including the States Premium Mare MAHARANI II (dam of Elite Stallion MACKENSEN and full brothers MAHAGONI and MARLON), States Premium Mare PERIHEL, and Elite Mares KANCONETTE and KARAWANE II (dam of the approved stallion KANTOR, States Premium and Premium Mare KANDICE, and Elite Mare KARAVELLE III). His descendents are sought after for competition, and his son TROUBADOUR was Christine Stückelberger's reserve mount for the Seoul Olympics. Flaneur died in 1988.
"Extraordinarily beautiful, expressive stallion with Arabian stamp, but in a large format. Very pretty face, much neck, thoroughly sufficient girth; the way of going is elastic and swinging; the stallion shows the best inclination for riding. In his youth he had such a bad accident that his recovery was doubtful. From that he retained a somewhat crooked head carriage which was only noticeable in the stable. From a veterinary perspective, this probably resulted from a hearing impairment from the accident.A stallion of vast significance not only in the Trakehner but also in Bavarian breeding. Although somewhat nervous and therefore a hard keeper, he did not pass that on. His children inherited a pleasant character, good rideability, and good rhythmic movement. His sons, Flaneur in the Trakehner and his full brother, Mahdi, in the Bavarian breed, took a paramount position."
"Dependable, balanced temperament; solid in character; Sufficient endurance and nerve, willing worker. Good jumping aptitude with impressive manner. General performance ability good; good ground-covering walk; elegant trot; rear legs could have more angle. Balanced, ground-covering canter.Best example of a Trakehner stallion with chief sire quality. Excellent in type and in conformation. Character-full head; best riding horse neck; well-shaped body; four excellent legs. As a result of a pasture accident as a two year old, his way of going is no longer free and natural. An injury of the tendons in the stifle later became evident. He produces large-framed, character full types with a good way of going and comfortable character."Morgenglanz was performance tested at Westercelle in 1968. He stood at Hunnesrück and Klosterhof Medingen while in Germany. Morgenglanz was imported to the US in 1978 and stood at Edith Kosterka's Trakehner Gestüt Wayne until his death in 1987. He sired 4 graded stallions, including PREGELSTRAND, DONAUGLANZ, DONAUSTROM, and PERLENGLANZ, and 31 studbook mares (including Verband Elite mare DONAUQUELLE vom KLOSTERHOF) in Germany before his export. In the US he sired several excellent daughters, including the ATA Elite mare TRAUMFEE and ATA Honor Roll mare PASSION II.
"Large-framed stallion with good expression, much neck and body depth. Rectangle format; rear leg somewhat long with low-set hocks; good movement that is certainly impaired by trauma experienced in his youth. Because the stallion stood almost always in the Hannoverian main breeding zone, only a few Trakehner mares could be brought to him. His transmission within the Trakehner breed is characterized by typey foals of medium frame. He founded a stallion line in the Hannoverian breeding. Through his Trakehner sons, a stallion line can also develop."Abglanz died in 1964.
"Satisfactory walk; good trot; very good canter; good temperament; firm and dry constitution. Good rideability, good cross-country test and jumping ability. Total result: good; Special Comments: versatile riding and hunting horse.A smoothly-formed stallion with good masculine expression, well-formed neck, good shoulder and saddle situation and emphasized notable total harmony. Joints in the front legs could be more pronounced. Movement in all gaits is good and expansive, front somewhat base narrow, rear wide."Ferlino sired 23 studbook mares before his death in 1993.
