*bangs head on wall* Kiviknon, he is by an imported, frozen semen FabrianoxPik Bube stallion, who is currently in contention for the London Olympic team in dressage, who has an outstanding reputation as both a riding horse and as a 'super sire', always stamping his progeny with his type, excellent paces and brilliant temperament. He is also in the top 5% of dressage stallions in the FN index (woldwide). He is out of a performance tested, hanoverian stud book approved thoroughbred mare. She was noted, out of all Australian stud book mares, to be of 'perfect' type to be breeding with hanoverians, by the head of the German hanoverian stud book.
I have met 4 other horses by the same stallion bred by the stud I bought my yearling from. All have been absolutely exceptional and said to have been 'born broken in'. The same stud also bred the top scoring hanoverian foal at the last hanoverian classifaction tour of the country, by the same stallion as my youngster.
I think I have a 'slight' idea of why I bought him, not just for the 'H' on his backside ;)
I purchased him specifically as a dressage prospect as I could not afford to purchase something of his quality as a 3 year old under saddle.
