This third volume of Holstein Stallion Lines concerns itself with the high performance line of Ladykiller xx, which was established in the middle of the 60s. Ladykiller xx was just an average race horse, yet delivered the proof that racing performance only plays a peripheral role in the transmission qualities for the riding horse breed because, from the many thoroughbreds used during the 60s and early 70s in Holstein, he emerged as the best by far. His most well-known stallion sons, Landgraf I and Lord, founded two large branches of this line. Today in Holstein, it‘s considered standard that a horse exhibits Ladykiller xx blood at least two or three times in its pedigree. One of Holstein’s secrets to success has always been a certain degree of inbreeding for as far back as anyone can remember.

Holstein Stallion Lines Vol. III Ladykiller xx

Holstein Stallion Lines Vol. III Ladykiller xx. Translation for the german book, please order both books.

The horse breeding country of Holstein has noticeably outperformed all other German breeds with the presentation of international show jumpers in the last decades. At the same time it can be noted that the Holstein breeders have attained their worldwide success with a relatively small mare base, which was intensified subject to a significant tightening of the breeding program over the last few years. The concentration of quality is so high that all other German and, of course, foreign breeds have clearly benefited from Holstein. A look at the pedigrees makes it particularly clear: the breeders, who busy themselves with the breeding of show jumpers, need to begin with the Holstein gene. The supremacy of the Holstein breed is clear, not only on an international level, but particularly on their native soil: for many years, Holstein has proportionally placed the highest ratio of show jumpers at the German National Young Horse Championships.

Each licensed stallion is detailed and comes with standardized data regarding color, descent, stick measure, personal sports contribution, as well as location and length of specified cover time, whether he has a Holstein brand or is branded by another breeding organization, and whether he comes from Holstein mare lines. Further stallion sons from other breeds, which are not from Holstein mare lines, are listed under their respective sire in order to ensure an accurate overview of them.

The features of this book include comprehensive illustrations. Photo material has been obtained for most of the stallions even in foreign possession, which has some historical value and has been published here for the first time. The graphic diagrams of the individual branches of this line were created by Mr. Juergen Passig and give this book an especially valuable flair.
