April 6, 2004

The "Reiter und Pferde in Westfalen" magazine published the statistics of the 2003 matings to Westfalian licensed stallions. These figures were highly interesting if you wanted to know what the latest breeding trends were.
2003 breeding leader is the dressage sire Fürst Piccolo with 286 offspring.
In 2003 the Westfalian studbook registered approximately 6600 matings in total to Westfalian licensed stallions. Leading sire was Fürst Piccolo, a 1997 liver chestnut stallion by Fidermark x Mephistopheles, standing 16.1hh.
Fürst Piccolo was a premium stallion at the NRW main approval in 1999 and won the 100 day test in 2000 with high scores. His crop of foals was sold at the Munster Elite auctions for top prices.

Fürst Piccolo's son Fürstenau placed high in the finals at the Bundeschampionat (German Championships for young horses) in the riding horse class and third at the Westfalen Championships.
