With a current total of over five million DM , the offspring of this black Hanoverian stallion include seven Olympic horses and more than 60 approved stallions. He had a spectacular end to his life when in full view of several thousand spectators at Klatte’s 1993 Stallion Presentation in Vechta , the 21 year old suddenly fell to the ground after taking his last breath. Grannus was the second foal of State Premium Mare , Odessa , who was sired by the Trakehner stallion Ozean . The mare had been purchased as a filly by Grannus’s breeder Mr. Ludwig Decker in 1967. At the age of two and a half , Grannus was sent to the approval in Verden and he was already a striking stallion with that certain ‘ special something ‘ . He was eventually sold to Westphalia and his name changed to ‘Granit’. At some point after this sale , the stallion was then put up for sale again but this time as part of bankruptcy assets. The asking price was DM60,000 which was a lot of money in those days for a young stallion after just one season and as yet un-tested. He was however bought by Heinrich Klatte and renamed Grannus as there was already a stallion called ‘Granit’ in Oldenberg. The stallion had already covered mares in Westphalia for a year under the name ‘Granit’ and so to avoid confusion , he has been listed with the German Riding Federation as ‘Granit – Grannus’. After his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf , Grannus did not make the required time on the race track. His jumping

Like hell it is. I have my opinions on what is beautiful. And he’s just plain fat and ugly. I’m sorry.

I agree with Grizzly BAsin RAnch. You’re obviously clueless…Grannus is superb. The only fault with the video is that it is too short.

Billishotheismine says:
