Our flagship stallion Rousseau, occupies a prominent place in our hearts and our aspirations, having managed him into his supremacy as an international breeding stallion. Rousseau’s remarkable success is exemplified by the fact that out of his first four foal crops in the Netherlands, Rousseau produced three consecutive Champions of the KWPN Stallion Licensing: Wamberto (2006), Blue Hors Zack (2007), and Ampere (2008). From his first foal crops in Germany, Rousseau has four licensed sons: Fiorano named to the Premium Ring of the 2008 VhW licensing, Fuerst Rousseau now standing at Celle, a Rousseau-Lauries Crusader licensed in the late 2008 Hanoverian korung and Rousseau Noir, licensed by the GOV. Three of Rousseau’s sons won their stallion performance tests with record-breaking results, Wamberto, Fiorano, and Ampere! With National Champions in the Netherlands, USDF National Champion titles here in the US, and offspring performing at the top of their peer groups at CDI’s around the world, Rousseau’s impact is proven. A top class stallion who consistently produces top class offspring, Rousseau is readily available to North American breeders for fresh, cooled semen services; we proudly offer his frozen semen services to breeders around the world with ready inventories waiting in Europe.
