    Default Spin-off from hardy bloodlines... Who are the G-line stallions active in NA?

    I have found Grandom and I know there's Gold Luck, but I think he's deceased?

    Who else?

    Graf Top II comes to mind but apparently he is for sale so maybe not available.

    Gold Luck is alive and well. Looks great too:-) you can contact Mo Swanson, Rolling Stone Farm, about him.

    Gold Luck is alive. We stand his nephew Beste Gold who has Grande on the sireline 3rd generation and mareline 5th generation. He also carries a significant amount of Abglanz on both sides . They were also know to be quite hardy, and ( like Grande) excelled in both jumping and dressage. I competed Beste Gold for his first and most of his second year without shoes. Until his injury, he was very easy soundness wise except for an early on saddle fitting issue. A custom saddle with extra shoulder room solved all making him super easy.

    It's easier to find G-line mares than stallions. So you may need to look for stallions out of G-line mares.
    However, I would check out Gold Luck for sure.
    Mo has a couple of 2011 stallion prospects by Gold Luck and I hope at least one turns out to be worthy to pass on the lines.
    I have a 4 yo mare who is half G-line (1/4 on each side) whose lines are so old that she could have been born 20 years ago. Tough to see the older stallions passing away.

    For Play has a lot of G-line influence.

    Personally I like Grande best through the dam line. I've owned a numerof mares with Grande on the dam side that were very good performers and dam. My stallion also has the "golden" Graphit-Gotthard combo. Grande seems to do particularly well when combined with his dam-sire Duellant or with Frustra II. Bolero was also very good bred to Grande mares (eg-Brentano II).
    Grande progeny were criticised for their type, particularly for their tendency to have a flat croup and a bit of a blocky head. It is unfortunate that lines are allowed to dwindle when they don't match the latest fashion. When it comes to breeding stock what they produce is so much more important than what they are themselves.

    A question about Gold Luck... what type of mare would he cross well with? Any opinions? My trainer owns a very lovely GL mare but I know little about her dam line.

    Ask Mo, she would know more and better than anyone else.

    This is all old Hano blood that they let go. The G line was not maintained since the 80's, when the Hano verband started to chase dressage. The Gervantus II that is mentioned is a 1987 stallion, as is Gold Luck.

    We had bred quite a few ( 8, I think) G Line colts over the years including Gold Luck (G- A )and Beste Gold ( B-G-A).Unfortunately, most were so prized for their potential as riding horses that they were gelded once we sold, whether they had been licensed or not. The most beautiful (and typiest) colt I ever bred was a Belucci ( Bolero x Grande) out of a G line x Tb mare. I wish the owner had lived up to her promises for the future of that one for sure, he would have been sooo useful in the USA.

    Many years ago, I bred quite a few G line x TB combinations, and every one that had opportunity went very far in either the dressage or Hunter disciplines, often with amateur owner/riders.

    Jasmine Letourneau's website indicates that she has Grandos semen.

    I believe Mo is also keeping two of Gold Lucks sons as stallion prospects..
