Hanoverians vs. Oldenburgs?
What is the difference between a Hanoverian and an Oldenburg? The reason I ask is my filly's sire is Devon Heir, a Hanoverian. Some of his progeny, foals are advertised as Oldenburgs? I don't get it? Can someone explain this to me? Thanks!
If the mare of the Hanoverian foals is Hanoverian they can register them in that registry and the mare owner may prefer that registry. I believe it is the hardest registry to get approval from..
Also many stallion are approved in more than 1 registry.
Does that mean a lot of the Warmbloods share similar, if not the same, bloodlines at times? Are there any special differences that may allow a horse into one of those registries but not the other?
Hanoverian bloodlines run through virtually all other WB registries. Trakhner bloodlines also are prominent in many WB registries.
Okay, so I'm still confused...... so if both the mare and sire are Hanoverian, the foal can be inspected and registered as an Oldenburg?
Also, my filly is Hanoverian/TB. What would she be eligible to be registered as?
In other words a registered Hannovarian sire and Oldenburg dam with approval in the say Westphalia registry can have the foal end up in that registry. But the parents would have to have been approved in that registry.
As far as your filly, it all depends on where it was born ( imported?) and exactly what the parents are registered and approved for. So I cannot answer your question without that information.
Okay, her sire is Devon Heir, registered Hanoverian stallion, guess he won the 2004 100 day test, pretty amazing looking guy. Her dam is just a registered TB as far as I know. My friend bred/raised Jewel, decided she doesn't know enough to train her, doesn't want to sell her and just offered her to me for free!
I was looking up her siblings and got confused, wondering why some were listed as Oldenburgs, when Devon Heir is a Hanoverian.
If you look up Devon heir he is approved --: Hanoverian Verband, American Hanoverian Society, ISR/Oldenburg North America.
This explains why most are Oldenburg.
It is very very hard to get approval in the Hanoverian registry and the ISR is very much easier.
Now as far as your filly the problem is the dam of your horse which I ASSUME was never approved in any WB registry and while a REGISTERED TB ( with JC papers) can go and be inspected it probably was not done.
So that leaves your filly with less options. You can go to the ISR and if approved will probably go in the lowest mare book and you will have to breed up.
You can also go to the AWR/AWS and RPSI
The situation you are in is so typical and shows the reason why NA will never have a WB unique to us.
Okay, I think I get it now. I'm not really interested in getting Jewel inspected or using her as a broodmare. Why do the owners of nice horses like Devon Heir allow breeding to mares who aren't inspected? Hopefully she'll end up a really good sporthorse for my daughter in years to come. Thanks for clarifying why the others were called Oldenburgs!
As far as why the stallion allowed the breeding in the first place, probably to see what he can produce as he is relatively new here and maybe in the hopes that the mare owner would get the mare approved. Maybe the mare is a very nice mare that could have gotten a high score if inspected and you can get both foal and mare inspected at the same time so maybe that was promised by the mare owner...who knows.
