Our special mare, every breeding farm is suppose to have one and Gina is ours. This mare is and will conitnue to be the driving force behind the success of our farms jumper breeding program. Gina was our wishing well and our stroke of luck when we started to breed horses on a larger scale. We purchased her from our good friends in Germany Hans Heinrich and Hannes Bruning. She was already in foal at the time to Drosselklang II which produced our Stallion Dr Pepper. Twice TB blood steming from Pik AS xx and Alpsee xx behind the immortal Gothard and Pik Koenig sire of both Pik Bube I and II. Gina has produced 4SPS mares of which 3 have been entered into the Hanoverin Jumper breeding Program, 3 at our farm and another which was already born at Hof Bruning. Her offspring are producing the same quality as Gina and we expect the tradition of SPS mares and top sport horses to continue from this line.

Gina is a beautiful 16H grey Hanoverian mare by Genever, out of a Pik Koenig dam. Gina is a of modern type, with lovely expressive gaits and a wonderful temperment. Gina was imported in the fall of 2000, with her kind and gentle temperment she quickly became a favourite in the barn.

Pik Koenig, Grenadine's dam sire, is noted as the most successful son of the famous showjumper producer, Pik As xx. Pik Koenig himself is the sire of 15 approved sons and over 200 Main Studbook mares. His son Pik Bube won 11 of 12 advanced competitions under rider Herbert Rehbein and is Pik Koening’s most noted producer to date having sired the 1981 Bundeschampionat winner, a mare named Pikjante as well as Pik Bube’s Girl, the 1990 Federal Mare Show winner in Verden.

Pik As XX was easily the most famous Abendfrieden XX son in German warmblood breeding. Breeders and interested buyers soon recognised that he was a genetic transmitter with a lot of potential. One component of his success was in his dam line. The bloodline of Postenkette also produced the top hereditary transmitter Pindar XX (private Trakehner breed), Parenzo XX (Warendorf state stallion), Pernod XX (private stallion in Westphalia who became well known under Willi Schultheis), the full Pik As XX brother Perser (Celle state stud) and Playmate (Warendorf state stallion), all of whom without exception matured to become renowned sires in their areas of specialization. Even though he transmitted wonderful movement, Pik As' was best known as a sire of showjumpers, and produced a number of approved sons. The task of upholding the line's versatility fell mainly to Pik König, a top producer of showjumpers whose progeny also managed to jump into the higher spheres of dressage sport.

On June 2nd, 2001, Gina delivered a colt by Drosselklang II. This colt, named "Dr. Pepper", won the Verband Inspection Championship, and was declared a top stallion prospect by Dr. Ludwig Christmann. Dr. Pepper then went on to win "Grand Show Champion" at the 10th Annual Sport Horse Breeders Show in Blainville, Quebec. Gina has 3 offspring in Germany; a beautiful 4 y.o. gelding by Linaro with super gaits and excellent jumping ability, ( Sold to California after winning a 4 year old division against 120 horses ) a 3 y.o. mare by Graf Top who sucessfully completed her mare performance test and was awarded "States Premium"; and a 2 y.o. colt by Graf Top
