The auction just ended. The full results should be up very shortly on the German site, and you will find videos, photos, and a full report on www.oldenburghorse.com in the next few days.
Sir Donnerhall II sold to Sweden for 250,000 Euro! A Venezuelan client of Patrick Burssens of the International Dressage Academy in Florida put up a great fight, but in the end Sweden won the bid. It would have been fun to have him in North America, but he is going to a good stallion station, so I'm sure he'll remain available for breeding.
The Grand Prix rider and trainer, Jason Canton, and his partner, Julia Martin, of Atlanta, Georgia bought the Sandro Hit x Rubinstein - #2 stallion. Uwe said that if he had been a year older, that stallion would have been the top horse in the auction. He is amazing.
Jason is well known for having owned, trained and competed Grandioso as a young horse through to Inter I.
Got the photos from Tammo and Kiki this morning. The report and videos will be up shortly!
14? Is there a list somewhere? How many are S/R crosses?

Sirringo – Sir Donnerhall I / Rubinstein I / Herbststurm
And actually, I think that the one Jason bought is not licensed - at least, not yet.
With all the SH blood now in Germany and NA, it is no wonder I keep hearing about mare owners looking elsewhere this year for stallions!
