FURSTIN FLIGHT - 2018 Hanoverian Filly - Fuerst Rousseau/Rienzi/Donnerhall - etm 16.1h
Red Robin gave us a beautifully elegant black filly in 2018. "Raven" is being retained as a future riding horse and broodmare with plans to breed at 3, foal at 4, and complete AHS mare performance testing at 5. She is by the Celle stallion Fuerst Rousseau (Rousseau/Weltmeyer) and out of our reliable Red Robin (Rienzi/Donnerhall/FeinerStern). We have high hopes that she will someday be an AHS Premium mare for our program.
Furst Rousseau has a dressage breeding value of 133, a rideability score of 9 and was shown successfully in FEI young rider classes after standing at stud at Celle. "At the end of the 70 day test Reserve Champion Furst Rousseau was obtained by the State Stud Celle. This is a very elegant and noble black stallion. He is half brother to Dramatic by Don Frederico who was 5 yo Champion of Young Dressage Horses in 2008. Furst Rousseau completed not only a fantastic stallion performance test, his close relative Barclay (Belissimo M – Prestige Pilot – Grenadier), was also awarded with highest scores and he finished this test as winner. Both horses have a mare line that has produced many licensed stallions, the damline of St Pr St Geranie by Grenadier – Arsenik, which originates with the family Wolgarune, father Wohler. This represents one of the best mare lines in Germany." (from International Horse Breeders). See SIRES page for more information, photos and videos.

HARMONIE - 2017 Hanoverian Filly - EH Herzensdieb/Wolkentanz/Borneo - etm 16.3h
This elegant and kind 2017 Hanoverian filly fits so many aspects of the modern Hanoverian horse. We plan to breed her at 3, foal out at 4, and complete AHS mare performance testing at 5. We have high hopes that she will be an AHS Premium mare for our future broodmare herd. She is by Trakehner E.H. Herzensdieb (Tambour) out of Elite Eligible Hanoverian mare Weidentanz (Wolkentanz/Borneo/Grunewald).
Harmonie will be presented at the AHS Futurity in July 2018 and shown at USDF in-hand shows during her youth. This filly has an exemplary temperament - calm, gentle, and with movement as her name suggests... with harmony!
Sire EH Herzensdieb "was the 2003 champion and crowd favorite at the 2005 Trakehner licensing in Neumünster, Germany, Herzensdieb finished his stallion performance test as reserve champion and won the Trakehner Championship for 3-year-old stallions in the same year. He is a Bundeschampionate qualifier. The striking bay stallion's intelligence and rideability allow him to flourish in his upper level dressage training, and his athleticism gives him talent over fences with beautiful scope. His correct gaits are expressive with the ability to collect. Herzensdieb has a FN breeding value dressage of 142 points and is in the top 10 percent of German dressage sires. He was honored with the prestigious Elite Hengsttitle (E.H.) in 2013 by the Trakehner Verband, and he is currently one of the few E.H. awarded stallions that are actively breeding in the United States." (from Leatherdale Farms). See our SIRES page for more information, photos, and videos of Herzensdieb.
Dam Weidentanz is an imported Elite-Eligible mare. Full of substance, power, and high intellect, we are very lucky to have one of her fillies her at Telos Farm.

HOPE OF TANTRIS - 2015 Trakehner Mare - Tantris/Abdullah Pg*E*/Amiego Ps*E* - etm 17.3h
A homebred "keeper filly" and broodmare prospect for us! 'Talhia' is out of our Trakehner mare Hallalujah Anyway, a seasoned and successful Dressage competitor, loaded with athletic jumper heritage. Talhia is being bred at 3 and then aimed for her Mare Performance test at age 5. Talhia is sired by the German imported Oldenburg Tantris (GOV) who is by Traumdeuter (TRK) and with the mare line of Rubina-Aktuell, which consistently appears in stallions within the top 10 WBFSH rankings for dressage including several from Blue Hors Stud. Tantris competed in FEI dressage well into his 20's and is known around the US for his rideability and passing on feet with tough soles and good angles. Talhia is no exception and in fact we purchased her dam specifically for this cross with Tantris.
Talhia received all 8's (premium level scoring) at her weanling ATA inspection with comments about her lovely eye and expressive, athletic gaits.
As a yearling in 2016, Talhia scored a 72.6% at a Chicago area USDF in hand show and was the highest in-hand score of the show. She will be bred as a 3 year old and then taking some time off to compete with Sarah in young horse and material classes for a few years. We also hope to complete her Mare Performance test and mare inspection with ATA when she is 5.
Talhia is being bred to Rascalino for 2019! Colt or Fillyoption available in-utero. This foal is expected to have amazing gaits and conformation for FEI dressage.
RED ROBIN - 2008 Hanoverian mare - Rienzi/Donnerhall/Feiner Stern - 15.2h
"Robin" is a product of the Marefield Meadows breeding program. Her full sister was the 2014 National AHS Futurity Champion and this cross was repeated by Marefield THREE times! She is by ES Rienzi and out of Elite Mare Dauphine, who is a full sister to the German stallion Dauphin (by Donnerhall). We are very lucky to have a mare with the immortal Donnerhall as her dam sire! Robin is extremely sweet and kind. If she could fit through our front door, you would find her on the couch with her head on your lap. She is extremely sensible and takes all training and new situations extremely well. A true amateur's dream horse! All the same, her gaits are professional quality with extreme power from behind and great schwung. Her strong traditional Hanoverian blood gives her a clean, clear, rhythmic walk, and a balanced canter. Videos below include footage of her 2016 and 2017 foals.
Robin's has been bred to Supremat OLD (Sandro Hit/Rubinstein) for 2019 - Colt in-utero sale option available! This high-end dressage pedigree is a repeat breeding of "Skylark TF" - see photos on our Sold page.
LUCYNDA *P* - 2001 Trakehner Mare - Onassis *E*/Condus*E*/Siegbert - 16.1h
By Onassis *E* (sire of Tatendrang *Pb*). Out of Leto, a full sister to Grand Prix champion Leonidas *Pg *E*. This mare was bred by Hilda Gurney and had a successful jumper career on the West Coast, including the honor of the ATA low jumper horse of the year in 2011. She completed her Mare Performance test in 2016 and is now known as Lucynda *P*.
Lucy is an extremely athletic and courageous mare. In addition to being a careful jumper, she showed great promise for cross country at an Andreas Dibowski clinic, navigating various cross country fences for the first time ever with relative ease. She has naturally uphill and expressive gaits for dressage, completing the ideal for the versatile Trakehner horse.

BLESSED ARE THE BROODMARES
Blessed are the broodmares in the field,
Patiently carrying their heavy load
Without complaint waiting for the big day,
When they, without a sound, lay down in the straw
And then the most amazing thing happens,
The miracle of a brand new life.
Now the everlasting circle is complete,
The amazing wonder of a living thing.
The foundation stock of every breed,
How fast we all happen to forget,
Where all our champions came from.
How fast we are to discard the blessed ones.
When they get too old or unproductive,
The most tolerant members of every breed,
Raising their young without ever a mumble,
Loyal beyond everyone’s compare.
Till they go on to raise the next one,
When will we finally wake up and see
How enormously grateful we should be
For the blessed ones we so easily forget?
HALLALUJAH ANYWAY - 2000 Trakehner mare - Abdullah*Pg*E*/Amiego*Ps*E*/Graditz*E* - 17.0h
"Danika" scored a high '54' at her American Trakehner Association inspection with 8's on her type, gaits, and walk. Danika is line-bred to the immortal Abiza, called the most influential Trakehner mare in the 20th century. Danika competed in dressage successfully through 2nd level, and was ranked USDF National reserve champion at first level until an injury changed her focus to broodmare-extraordinaire. Her sire, Abdullah *Pg*E* was a show jumping phenom in the 80's winning international competitions and was an Olympic Gold Medalist. Her dam sire, Amiego *Ps*E*, was a bronze medalist at the Pan Am games in eventing, and was exported from the US to Germany (yes, out of the US to Germany!)as a breeding stallion. Abiza, the dam of both Abdullah and Amiego was considered by many to be the most influential Trakehner mare of the 20th century. She also was exported back to Europe after a short time in the states. We are so lucky to have a line-bred Abiza mare as a broodmare.
Danika herself is a kind, gentle, trusting, and confident mare. She passes on her versatile Trakehner athleticism and laid back personality to her offspring. Both her 2014 colt and 2015 filly received 'premium' marks by the German Oldenburg Verband and American Trakehner Association, respectively. Her 2008 filly by Devon Heir was recently the CDA 2016 1st level freestyle champion!
