2016 Pr. GOV Colt, Foal of Distinction, & Stallion Prospect
Grey Flanell x Furst Heinrich x Velten Third
This colt is a special one. Grey Flanell has not been an easy breed for NA breeders due to frozen semen quality. MW is blessed and thankful to have 2 of the 4 known Grey Flanell’s produced in the US in 2016. Just like our filly MW Weissgold, this colt has incredible balance, movement, type, and presence. He comes from very special lines as well. Grey Flanell’s sire is Gribaldi who has produced numerous Internationally ranked GP horses including Painted Black, Hofrat, Unee BB, and the infamous Totilas.
The damline (FELDLAND, Hannover Stutenstamm 1193603, Hannover Stamm 454) is equally as special. The dam of Gheyser Peak is the maternal sister to Callaho’s Benecio (Belissimo M x Velten Third). This is also the damline of the stallions World Cup I-IV. At just 4 weeks of age (photo above) he was inspected by the GOV receiving the coveted Foal of Distinction award as well as being named a stallion prospect.
