Please note that with the exception of Dr. Pepper and Providence, these stallions do not belong to us, they are stallions we have bred our mares to. Some of these stallions belong to the Hanoverian State Stud and are available through the German Verband. Follow the link on our home page.

The Celle State stallion Drosselklang II by Don Carlos/Frustra II is Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2001.

Drosselklang II was born in 1984 at Margarethe Hagenah`s at Himmelpforten. His dam Forstlady had already produced a successful swarm of children before. His full brother Diavolo, born in 1971 won numerous international jumper classes under his rider Peter Schmitz and belonged to the most successful offspring of his sire Don Carlos. In 1985 the manager of the State Stud Celle, Dr. Burchard Bade purchased his full brother Drosselklang I and stationed him at the insemination station Oberndorf for the next five years. Both Drosselklang I and II grew up at Heinrich v. Allwörden`s at Krautsand. At the Verden stallion licensing 1986 Drosselklang II was purchased in the first Celle lot together with the legendary Weltmeyer and finished his performance test with first place in the jumping part. He then moved to the breeding station Berglage where he has since then been available by natural cover. His career would almost have come to an end when he suffered a serious injury when loose-jumping. It is said that it's due to his toughness and intelligence that he survived this injury.

Drosselklang II is one of the last sons of Don Carlos in the Hanoverian breed. The good mind we find in him is also typical for his offspring and he is one of the top sires in the Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program. Quite a lot of his offspring changed owners at top prices at Verden`s auctions. For instance Donnerlitchen who under Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum became Vice-Bundeschampion of German show-jumpers and Dobrock champion Don Oscar. In 1998 Dorain under his rider Karl-Heinz Markus became vice-world champion of young show-jumpers at Lanaken. Dorincord and Ian Miller took part in the Olympic Games. Further offspring on international level such as Dobel`s Frechdachs under team Olympic gold medalist Otto Becker, Skyboy and Delany ridden by world champion Rodrigo Pessoa or Böckmann`s Bella Donna under Gilbert Böckmann contribute to furthering the excellent reputation of this Celle State stallion. Drosselklang II – in the Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2001 we find classic bloodlines in a modern appearance, ready for the next century
