"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."
"Compact, well-sprung ribs and very muscular stallion with a pretty, small head. The front feet could be tighter. Very agile and always balanced in all movements. Surprisingly he produced large-framed horses, amongst then breeding stallions with quality and much movement."Index sired 5 graded stallions and 54 studbook mares before his death in 1989.
"Medium-sized, deep, broad stallion with much character and a calm temperament. Expressive head; medium-length, well-set neck; sloping croup; well-formed but somewhat closely placed, angled hocks; the foreleg is well-muscled in the forearm with short, sturdy cannons; the movement is in walk, trot, and canter paramount. One of the important breeding stallions of the modern age; equally good in siring breeding stallions, brood mares, and riding horses for all disciplines. He marks his get with quiet and calm behavior in every case, and excellent movement with strong impulsion from hindquarters. Good character."Pregel died in 1979.
"Enchantingly beautiful, noble head with smart, lively eye; best riding horse neck; lovely silhouette; foundation light with somewhat small joints; movement exceedingly smooth and ground-covering. From a breeding perspective, very valuable Thoroughbred stallion, producing dry, hard performance horses with emphasized jumping ability. The get are a little bit sensitive but easy to ride; very good in walk, trot, and canter, often a bit light in the cannons."Prince Rouge xx was a prolific producer, siring 5 approved sons and 48 stud book daughters, earning the record for Trakehner studbook mares by a Thoroughbred stallion. He was favored for breeding and his bloodlines are still sought-after due to the innate jumping ability his get possessed. Prince Rouge xx died in 1976.
