This page is a tribute to a freind, a fantastic stallion, and producer of excellent riding horses and foundation quality broodmares. Insel, as we called him, died December 4, 1998 and is greatly missed by us and those who new well.
We will still be breeding him thru the use of frozen semen. His offspring are eligible for ATA Registration.

Inselkönig was a black 16.1 hand Class 1 German Trakehner/German Hanovarian stallion. He was known for producing superb foundation quality mares that have produced approved sons in various warmblood breeds. He was used as a schoolhorse for upper-level riders by the German Hanovarian Society prior to being imported to the US. Inselkönig was recently featured in book ''International Warmblood Horse'' by Celia Clark and Debbie Wallin in which they credit him with producing a lasting positive influence on the Hanovarian breed.

Ya gotta love those old stallions!At 32, Inselkönig's semen had gotten better with age, probably due, in part to three years off where we used only frozen semen and, based on the difference in quantity and motility from 1996 to 1997,the Fastrack; His one collection this year, 60cc's, would have made 40 straws of frozen semen, a high number for any age, the average is 9 to 12 straws, and the largest collection of 125cc's probably 50 to 60 straws which is fantastic for any stallion, and unbelievable for one his age. We use a billion live semen per straw. His semen is better this year than last. We tested one of his cooled collections at 60 hours of age and it still had motility! 48 hours for chilled is considered the high end of longevity, the same for fresh, although there are exceptions, the longest known proven semen longevity is 6 days. We just pray he lives several more happy productive years.
At 32 Did he or didn't he have potency?
AT 32 HE DID!! He was the oldest Trakehner
Stallion in the world and quit possibly the oldest breeding Trakehner Stallion
in North America Ever!
His last foal crop from live cover and AI foaled this year.
There are two fillies and two colts. From the proud new "parents" we
have had rave reviews of the foals.
All are athletic, freindly and large at birth, with the tallest, the
colt, being 11.1 hands.
Watch the stallion location guide for photos and more information.
We have added photos and more info, and will be adding more
as soon as we receive them. See the Stallion guide for Inselkönig
