Bloodlines and highlights

Legrande’s bloodlines are a mix of Holstein (1/2), Trakehner (1/4) and Equus Kinsky (1/4). His Holsteiner father, Lefevre, carries both Landgraf and Cor de la Bryere -- two of the most influential show jumping sires.

Legrande’s dam, La Serina, a registered palomino Oldenburg competed in national show jumping competitions and carries Trakehner and Equus Kinsky bloodlines. Her father, My Boy, was an outstanding stallion of incredible colour. Bred in the Czech Republic, he was smuggled by truck into East Germany by an army platoon during a reconnaissance mission and went on to sire some of the most stunning golden horses in the region and enjoy a successful competitive career.

In 2010, only the second year of foals on the ground for Legrande, out of the 10 foals in the UK, six were presented at the BEF Futurity series in all three disciplines earning two elites and four higher first premiums, proving the stallion’s versatility and earning him the title of joint highest ranked stallion, sharing the honours with Woodlander Wavavoom by the BEF with the average score of 8.93.for his foals

Legrande, who carries both a red and black colour gene as well as the single dilute, so is capable of producing both palomino and buckskin offspring was bought as a weanling by Lynn Al-Rhedha, after her four year search for "a buckskin youngster who was not just a pretty colour."
