     Sadly, Brandenburg's Windstar passed away in December of 2011Windstar was a kind and generous horse with great heart, and we all miss him.  His legacy lives on in his offspring.

Somewhere in time's own space
There must be some sweet pastured place
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow
Some paradise where horses go,
For by the love that guides my pen
I know great horses live again.

     Windstar himself had an undefeated Eventing career before retiring from competition to stand at stud; five wins out of five events.  He also excelled at Dressage shows, winning his classes with scores averaging over 70 percent.  Registered with the Irish Draught Horse Society (North America), he was approved at their inspection as a three-year old in 1997, where he received high praise from judges in Ireland, Canada, and the USA.  Windstar has passed on his correct conformation, impressive movement and exceptional jumping ability to his offspring.  His babies tend to be athletic horses with good balance, keen intelligence, and superior jumping ability.  They inherit their sire's lovely, elastic way of going and bold, scopey jump.

    Windstar had some of the top bloodlines in Ireland in his lineage on both sides. His Thoroughbred sire, 'I'm A Star', led the Eventing world as a sire in the late 1990s and early 2000s. He produced numerous successful International Three-day Event horses, including Burghley and Badminton winner Star Appeal, as well as Phyllis's Advanced level horses, Star Bright and Sirius.  Windstar's Irish Draught dam, Kildalton Seabreeze, is descended from some of the best jumping bloodlines in Ireland.  Her sire, Sea Crest, is well known as a producer of top show jumpers, including the internationally renowned 'Cruising'.  Her maternal grandsire is King of Diamonds, one of the all-time great Irish Draught stallions, who was renowned for his jumping ability, and made a huge contribution to the breed as he passed on his talent to his descendants.

     We are extremely proud of the quality of Windstar's offspring.  They are generally big and attractive; exceptionally good movers with excellent conformation and a strong resemblance to their sire.  Windstar stamped his offspring with his lovely elastic and athletic way of going, extraordinary jumping ability, and great personality.  His foals are straight and correct, athletic, and well balanced.  Most of my broodmares are TBs, so our Irish Sport Horse babies are 3/4 Thoroughbred, which I consider perfect for Eventing. 

      Windstar's babies are having phenomenal success in competition.  A number of his offspring are Eventing successfully at the Advanced level.  Arthur, owned and ridden by Allison Springer, has represented the US internationally.  Polaris recently made his four-star debut at the Landrover Kentucky CCI four-star with Sarah Gumbiner, jumping clear around the hugely challenging course. Many of Windstar's descendents are competing successfully in Eventing, Dressage, Hunters and Show Jumping, while others are excellent foxhunters or pleasure horses.  You can see some of his other successful progeny on the Windstar's Offspring page.
