    Default The **game changers** studs whose influence made a BIG impact

    I am interested to see which stallions COTH thinks have had the greatest impact on their breed/studbook. Who changed the game for that group of horses? Pictures, and video, if possible, please.

    As an example, Furioso II comes to mind in the Oldenburgs- but, he was also used across many studbooks. If we look at American breeds, WGC CH Wing Commander, Stonewall Supreme, and Supreme Sultan would be at the top, for me

    How about Milkie xx? As a result of his progeny the first Cremello JC registered TB was born - Guaranteed Gold. I would say that was a game changer for the JC studbook.


    For Trakehners I'd have to say Dampfross, Pomerantes ox and Burnus AA.

    Donnerhall, Rubinstein I, and Sandro Hit for Oldenburg (and also for other studbooks).

    For better and worse for Quarter Horses, Paints and Appaloosas, the most notable would be Impressive.

    Smile Beasting....Impressive for sure but

    Don't forget Doc Bar AND both of these notable sires' granddaddy, the one and only TB stallion, Three Bars.
