During 2016 Dr. Ludwig Christmann of the Hannoveraner Verband was instrumental in matching Lenbach to the bloodline needs of our broodmares. Lenbach is free from D, S and R lines with limited strands of W. He is not only a son of the very successful Hannoveraner stallion Londonderry, the 2013″ Hannoveraner Stallion of the Year”, but he also carries Brentano, a son of Bolero, and Grande genes.
Lenbach was imported to South Africa in November 2016 by Inge de Wet and Annerie Myburgh. After the long quarantine period he visited Calaho where semen was collected for our 2016 covers. The first of his progeny has arrived and apart from presenting strong Hannoveraner type, they excite with their elastic movement.
Lenbach is licensed for Hannover, having passed the hengstkeuring at Marbach in 2004 with a gesamtindex of 109,85 and placed 4th in the group. He impressed with correct gaits, beautiful type and a stunning walk. He will be inspected in February 2018 for general licensing in South Africa when Jan-Crome Sperling, a specialist in training young stallions for licensing in Germany, will be visiting South Africa. We hope that he will be available for use to other breeders in 2018.
