17.1h | 1994 | Zweibrucker Stallion

Lonely Boy xx – Ramiros – Grandus

A sensitive, beautiful, and extremely talented athlete, Leonberg was a stallion who left a big impression on all who saw him.  He competed successfully in both Germany and USA under different riders, but it was when paired with Mikala Munter that Leonberg really came into his own.  The pair was successful through multiple Florida seasons, competed at the European CDI’s including Copenhagen, Aachen, and Rotterdam, and were named as alternates for the 2010 World Equestrian Games for the Danish Team.   

Leonberg is sired by the Thoroughbred stallion Lonely Boy. Lonely Boy proved to be a versatile sire, producing both successful jumpers and dressage horses. His dam Romina Power, combines Ramiro Z and Graphit blood, two stallions known for producing jumping talent as well as dressage horses.

As a breeding stallion, Leonberg offers blood and refinement given the Thoroughbred blood in his pedigree. He has numerous premium foals to his credit and one licensed stallion. His offspring inherit his elasticity and uphill movement. The Leonberg offspring in the US have gone on to be successful dressage horses, with offspring such as Looks Elegant HU, Lochlan, Call My Agent and Leonidas OWF earning top placings with at USDF Regionals. In the hunter ring, Leonardo’s Quest HU and Lady of Quality HU were well decorate Pre-Green Hunters. Leonberg is an exceptional choice for breeders looking to improve gaits while keeping versatile athletic ability.

Mare Information
Mare Management Reminders

At Hilltop Farm we want to work closely with you and your veterinarian to ensure a successful breeding season and are available for questions at any time. The following information includes some basic suggestions as well as reminders on a few requirements for your breeding contract.

A Breeding Soundness Exam including a uterine culture is recommended, but not required, for all mares prior to breeding. If a mare fails to settle after two breeding cycles, Hilltop Farm will require a culture and cytology to be done at that time prior to any additional shipments of semen. We always recommend your vet checking your mare post-breeding to confirm ovulation. If a mare hangs on to a follicle longer than expected, it can be less expensive to ship additional semen than it would be to breed a second complete cycle. Getting your mare settled in foal is just the beginning. We recommend multiple pregnancy checks to help prevent cases of twins, misdiagnosed pregnancies, or lost time in the breeding season. The following schedule is what we recommend; only the first and fourth checks however are required by your breeding contract.

  • 1st check (Required): 14-16 days post ovulation – optimum time for vet to pinch off a twin if more than a single ovulation is noted.
  • 2nd check (Recommended): 28 days post ovulation – to confirm a viable pregnancy as the heartbeat normally appears by day 25.
  • 3rd check (Recommended): 35-40 days post ovulation – to confirm maintained pregnancy prior to endometrial cup formation. Mares that slip foals early may not come back into heat.
  • 4th check (Required): 55-60 days post ovulation – final confirmation of pregnancy in its critical first trimester.

Following your mare’s 14-16 day pregnancy check, please have your vet complete the Mare Breeding Passport received with your semen shipment and return it to Hilltop Farm. Any changes in pregnancy status after the 14-16 day check must be communicated to Hilltop Farm immediately. This Passport is used in all stallion reports to various breed registries and is used to generate a Breeding Certificate so that you can register your foal.

REGISTRATION & FUTURITY INFORMATION

Your mare’s registration and approval play just as important of a role as the stallion’s approvals when determining registration options for your foal. Please keep in mind that in order to register your foal with a specific association, your mare may first need to be presented to that registry for approval. In addition to the registries a stallion is approved with, there may be additional registration options based on your mare’s eligibility and the stallion’s credentials. If you are confused at all on registration options for a potential foal, please speak with Hilltop Farm and your breed registry PRIOR to booking your breeding.
