    Question Hanoverian stallion Wellington II?

    Wellington II is a Hanoverian stallion who stood in Canada a number of years ago.
    I can remember seeing his picture/ads but I don't know much about him.

    Does anyone have any insight into his breeding/pedigree?


    Any experience with his offspring?
    A lovely mare by him has been bred to AFR, and I am interested in knowing more about her sire.
    Thanks in advance!

    I am stretching WAY back into the dusty cobwebs of my memory, but if I recall correctly, he stood in Ontario for a while. I believe he was approved CWHBA but not Hanoverian and was owned by Colleen Embree-Jay. I believe Colleen is now in BC and you can find her contact info herhttp://www.canadianwarmbloods.com/bc.php?page=Executive+%26+Directorse

    Nice stallion. Retired in 2003, I believe. Sired by Wedekind (by Ferdinand) and out of a Frustra II (Futurist) mare. If he's still alive, he'd be close to 32 +/- by now. He is/was Hanoverian in origin, but approved CWHBA.

    Partial pedigree here:

    Found this old thread. A picture is posted of him.

    Rodawn and Forte sound right. I bred my Trak/TB cross to him in the mid 90s, hoping to add a little bone and get a quieter temperament. Got both - a filly who looked very much like her sire, very light on her feet, good temperament on the ground and undersaddle. He was a handsome stallion, and I think he passed on his even temperament and good movement. Many of his offspring were bay, with some white.

    Thank you very much Forte,Sunnydays and rodawn for the links and info.

    The mare is by Wellington, out of a very nice TB mare, and strongly resembles her sire.
    Lovely mare, excellent conformation and temperament,competed well in dressage.

    Do any of you Hanoverian experts have any insight into the pedigree? is this a dressage pedigree or do we see any jumpers here?
    (I confess to knowing almost nothing about Hanoverian bloodlines).

    Thanks again.

    My boy is also out of Wellington II out of a tb mare. He is just lovely. He has a really nice, round jump to him and is a nice mover as well. I haven't had the funds to show him a lot, but he placed really well in the hunters and could easily do 1.20 jumpers now but he is my pet, the love of my life and he gets to pretty much do as he pleases

    I actually have a video and breed sheet for Wellington II (I could pdf and email it to you if you'd like). He looks like he was a lovely stallion.

    Here is my guy:

    Thank you bucksnort (one of my favourite user names ever btw). Your boy is handsome - and does resemble the mare too.
    Thank you for sharing pics of him.

    I was spectacularly lucky to have owned a Wellington II daughter as my first horse. Her name was Wellington Abbey. She was bay with chrome. Fabulous temperament and a gorgeous mover. Biggest mistake of my equine life was selling her to my then coach because she had too much talent and we were both green. If I knew then what I know now, we would have stayed together for the whole of her life. Her full sister and her half brother were also wonderful horses. He seemed to be a very consistent producer - even my farrier raved about his foals that were in his practice. If I could ever find a daughter of Abbey's I would buy her in a heartbeat. Actually, I would seriously consider any nice Wellington II daughter. Or granddaughter!

    Hi Fred, lovely older style Hanoverian (just when they were starting to breed them a little "lighter" for the NA market). I remember him the day he was imported to Canada. In fact we were the first Canadian clients of the new owners to breed to him. He did not complete his final Han. testing in Germany but was approved as a CSH stallion. I had two foals by him, one sold to the USA as a top hunter and the other I kept as my dressage horse and later sold to an eventer who campaigned him well into his mid 20's even at the Preliminary levels starting to wind down his career at that point. He showed until after he turned 30 and is still alive I believe to this day. VERY hardy, handsome horses.

    Thank you Cheryl. Great info to have, and good to hear.
    This mare is by Wellington II and out of a very nice TB mare.
    She had a very nice colt by A Fine Romance who has been sold to the US as an UL event prospect.
    She has just had another beautiful colt by A Fine Romance.
    Both of these are 3/4 TB and 1/4 Hanoverian.
    I'm very grateful for the information on their damsire.
