    Default Herald - Holsteiner stallion by Heraldik xx

    Does anyone know if he has any offspring eventing?

    The stallion Herald (video) is competing in the WEG showjumping for Spain. He's a son of the TB Heraldik, sire of WEG eventing competitors Butts Leon, Butts Abraxxas and Happy Times, as well as grandsire of WEG winner Sam.

    Herald is 5/8ths TB, which when crossed with a TB mare, would produce a 13/16ths TB, which is just about perfect for eventing.

    Anyone know more about him?

    Here's a website for him with photos.

    Definitely has a jump! I can't find any offspring for him so far.

    Just though I'd mention that La Biosthetique-Sam is by Stan the Man xx who is also the sire of two of Leslie Law's international eventers. Shear H2O who he won Team silver with in Sidney and Shear Leau who won the individual gold in Athens. Pretty impressive for one stallion to have both an Olympic and World Champion get.

    Does anyone know where to find more information about Herald 3, or have any contact information for his people? I was impressed by his jumping ability as seen on a few video clips, but I can't find much information on him other than a few youtube videos and a pedigree...

    lizajane, do a search on the breeding forum. I've posted his contact details there on previous threads.

    (If you can't find the posts, let me know and I'll find the info again.)

    JER, I didn't find your post but someone else had posted his contact info on a thread where you mentioned him - thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

    can anyone verify?

    Herald really interests me - I think he is a classier version of Jaguar Mail.
    The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.

    Y'all know my idea about all three of the Foundation sire lines on the first page, don't you?

    Look at Heraldik. Double to Tourbillon for his Herod, and double to Hurry On for his Matchem.

    Plus, I'm thinking that Grey Sovereign's 3/4 sibling Nimbus (who is in Heraldik) is a very nice line to find. He's also in Shutterfly and Let's Fly through Famm, and he's also in the 3/4ths TB dressage sire Bolero--as is Court Martial.
