"Füchtels Floriscount OLD", by "Florencio" - "Donnerhall" - "Walldorf" - "Tin Rocco" - "Vollkorn xx", dark chestnut born 2005, in the same style like his grandfather "Donnerhall". He was the winner of the dressage index by a mile at his 70 day performance test at Schlickau 2008 (147,49 points!), in 2014 he won several international shows up to Intermediate ! and re´ceived the homour of "Oldenburg VTV Stallion of the Year". Beside that he was second at the final at the "Nürnberger Burg Pokal" and won the final freestyle at Frankfurt indoor!!
"Floriscount", focus on dressage breeding, because nobility oblige! He filled the judges, test riders and audience with enthusiasm with his presence, his fantastic gaits and rideability. Therefore he received two times a 10,0 from both testriders! For the canter the judges again gave the highest score available: 10,0!, for his great trot a 9 and his walk was still a 8,38, everything far over average. This highly modern and long legged stallion connects a wonderful shape with lots of presence, high rideability and super character.
"Floriscount's" dam Elitemare "Arkona" by "Donnerhall" now seems to create a new stallion line. From six colts so far three are licensed until today! Beside him, there is the former premium stallion at Münster/Westf. "Sandakan" by "Sandro Hit", who already produced outstanding offsprings at the Swedish Main Stud "Flyinge" and in 2009 the fullbrother "Floriscount II" became licensed and received the premium award at the Mecklenburg stallion days at Redefin.
"Floriscount" was one of the most popular young stallions in his first breeding season 2009 for Hannover and Oldenburg right from the beginning. He developed excellent and becomes more and more maxculine. In spite of just very few show starts he won young dressage horse classes by a mile in 2009.
In 2010 he started with a incredible good show at the Celle State Stud show at Verden and at the Böckmann stallion show at Vechta. His first foals on the ground caused lots of very positive rumour and many breeders tried to purchase "their" Floriscount right away. Then we had a very successful "open house day" on April 24th 2010 where we showed more than 25 from his first foals to more than 1.800 visitors and interested breeders. The judges Uwe Heckmann, Hans heinrich Brüning and Jens Meyer were impressed by the quality and type of his offsprings and selected four foals right away for the Oldenburg and Hannoverian Elite auctions. You can see some pictures on the left!
The highest priced foal at the Vechta Elite foal auction in June 2010 was by Floriscount - Dormello for 25.000 Euro, sold to Totilas rider Matthias Rath and Mrs. Linssenhoff. Auction foals and show winners all over the country made him more famous and so he had the second biggest crop of foals in the Verden Elite auction in August.
While carefully and slowly trained he had a few very good placings in the five year old shows and qualified finally for the "Bundeschampionate at Warendorf" in 2010. Because of his incredible breeding season we did not go to the final in September and continued his training during the winter here at home at Gut Fuechtel.
"Floriscount" was in a first time, but very successful, cooperation managed through the wellknown "Böckmann stud" at Lastrup and through the "Lower Saxony State Stud" at Celle since 2009. This "fertile cooperation" went forward in 2010 and of course we continued this with chilled and frozen semen in the following years as the breeders all over the world really accepted him so good and his offsprings went on to be successful and typical Floriscount like! In the US Judy Yancey from "Yancey Farms" distributes his semen, in Australia he had some beautiful foals on the ground and especially in the UK he became very popular.
In 2011 he was so occupied in breeding that we only showed him a few times. He right away qualified again for the German Bundeschampionate at Warendorf with more than 82 % and had several top rankings in the six year old FEI classes.
2012 everyone expected him to start in the S- class (PSG) as he was obviously really ready for it. But because his rider M. Gribbe suddenly left the Böckmann stud we changed the plan. I kept him in training again myself and at the end of the year Olympian and international Grand Prix trainer Jürgen Koschel and his son Christoph took over the training. After breeding season and London Olympian Games he went to their stable at Hagen. Both were convinced of his great character, his rideability and top quality for a future Grand Prix star and at the end of the year he competed first time at "S" (fourth) level with Christof.
His first offsprings showed for the stallion licensing at Verden in 2012. It was a sensation as after seeing more than 550 young stallions Floriscount had the biggest crop of offsprings selected (6!) for the final licensing at Verden end of October from all stallions. This was really a surprice for an Oldenburg stallion in Hannover!
At the end he had right away three licensed sons and one "premium" stallion and therefore he was right away the most successful stallion at Verden licensing 2012! A great honour for us !
"Füchtels Floriscount" and his offsprings are still on top! His first crop of three year old mares won several mare shows and did very well at their performance tests. Two black mares qualified for the Oldenburg Elite mare show at Rastede after a very good performance test and received the State Premium award.
In the Hanoverian breeding program he had four mares selected for the Elite mare show at Verden, the prestigous Herward von der Deeken show. At the end the "Vice Champion" mare "Fleur" by Floriscount - Wild Dance was on top! In the riding horse classes she was super again, received the Vice Champion title again and qualified herself for the Federal Championship at Warendorf. There she went right into the final and finshed on place four at the end. A super result for this young mare!
The first Floriscount riding horse in a Verden Elite auction was just spectacular! "Fleur d'Amour" by Floriscount - Wolkentanz sold to the US for 45.000 Euro. In Great Britain a Floriscount colt won the foal championship at Bedfort and was "Supreme Champion 2013" !
And once again Floriscount had the biggest crop of two year old stallions selected (6) for Hanover at the Verden Stallion Licensing held on October 24th. He had two licensed sons there and once again a "premium" stallion! The most expensive not licensed stallion in the auction on saturday 26th was a Floriscount - Stedinger son who sold to Spain for 40.000 Euro.
2014 news: We stopped the cooperation with Koschel after six month before breeding season in spring 2014. "Füchtels Floriscount" went to my friend and wellknown trainer Oliver Oellrich and my daughter Patricia after finsihing a busy breeding season. This was a good decision I guess:
2014 was his great breakthrough as he showed first time international at PSG and Intermediae I in the Netherlands and won his show easily. At international shows at Hagen and Balve he placed in the top three too and then after breeding season he competed at the World Championship at Verden. He won both PSG shows and qualified with nearly 76 % for the prestigious Frankfurt Burg Pokal final. What a great success!!
By the way six of his hanoverian offsprings were successful in riding horse classes at the championships and one qualified for the Warendorf Bundeschampionate. With 170 index points and a heritability of 90 % he is one of Germanies top breeding stallions (rank four, better than Danmon Hill and Dimaggio!).
And finally on December 2014 the Frankfurt Festhallen show with the Nurnberg Burg Pokal Final. "Floriscount" showed exceptional good and was just beaten two times in the PSG warm up and the final by a second and finished rank two! But at the winners Kur to music he scored unbelievable 90 % and was the winner of 2014 Burg Pokal Winning Round! What a finish, unbelievable and we are so proud and happy!!! Here you see his final round at the Burg Pokal 2014!!
In 2015 he was ready to compete at Grand Prix level after breeding season. Unfortunately he had an accident shortly before his first start that made it impossible to show. He was again one of Germanies top stallions, in the Federal ranking of dressage sires with a super breeding value index and a high heritability of 94%!! Many State premium mares more than 15 licensed stallions, a performance test winner at the KWPN included (Ferguson) and some more champion horses at the Bundeschampionate at Warendorf.
In 2016 he will be available with fresh (chilled) and frozen semen through Böckmann Stud and Celle State Stud again! Our main focus now is to keep him sound and this is not easy with stallions that breed that much. He will stay in training with Oliver during the season, we collect him only three times a week on mondays, wednesdays and fridays ! I hope that our breeders take care and understand our goal: "Füchtels Floriscount" will be a Grand Prix horse and this is good for all breeders that used him too. Cross your fingers and good luck!
We'll keep you updated about his progress!! You are warmly welcome to visit us! "Let you inspire yourself by Floriscount's children" and feel free to conatct me for further questions.
