Bloodlines

Bloodlines Details

Florianus II is a son of one of the most popular and prolific sires of the modern era—Florestan I. Among Florestan’s many successful offspring are the young horse champions Florencio, French Kiss, Fürst Heinrich and Fidermark, as well as top Grand Prix horses such as Floriano, Forrest Gump and Glock’s Flirt. Florestan offspring are noted for supple gaits coupled with rideability. He produced more than 2,000 German competition horses, 90 licensed stallions and 220 States Premium mares.

Florianus’ damline is also exceptional. His dam, St.Pr.St. Die Dame, competed in dressage and jumped 1.2m before becoming a broodmare. She produced 12 offspring, including the Approved Westfalen stallion Funkenstolz (s. Funkenspiel), the international Grand Prix competitor Fur Immer, and international jumpers Lady Lancer D and Lucina 20. Die Dame is a full sister to the Westfalen stallion Dottore, who stood at Warendorf State Stud. Her full sister, St.Pr.St. Dornröschen, took third place at the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf, and was a top priced mare at the Elite Auction in Münster.

These two mares, along with Florianus' granddam, St.Pr.St. Rebecca, were the winning family at the Westfalen Elite Broodmare Show, and represented Germany on a European level in Brussels.

This dam line, with Hanoverian origins, also produced the licensed stallions Dalheim (private stallion in Rhineland), Doll (private stallion in Bawue), Falkenstern I (private stallion in Hanover), Falkenstern II (State Stud Celle) and Gotthardsen (Celle State Stud). These two mares, along with Florianus' granddam, St.Pr.St. Rebecca, were the winning family at the Westfalen Elite Broodmare Show, and represented Germany on a European level in Brussels.

The Warendorf State Stud stallion, Dottore, is a full brother of Florianus' dam. This dam line with Hanoverian origins also produced the licensed stallions Dalheim (private stallion in Rhineland), Doll (private stallion in Bawue), Falkenstern I (private stallion in Hanover), Falkenstern II (State Stud Celle) and Gotthardsen (State Stud Celle).
