Wolkendame placed second out of 57 mares in her Mare Performance Test in Germany, earning an overall 8.11 with scores of 8 for her walk, 9 for her trot, 8 for her canter, 8.5 for rideability and 7.5 on jumping. She met all the requirements for obtaining her States Premium mare title except for producing a foal. Wolkendame was being pointed toward the Bundeschampionat before she was imported as a three-year-old.

At Dressage at Devon in 2000, Wolkendame won her class, the Filly Championship and the Bari von Buedingen perpetual trophy, which is awarded to Devon’s highest scoring Hanoverian. We enjoyed riding her magnificent gaits for several years before breeding her to Metternich in order to fulfill the requirements for her Elite Mare title. That first foal is winning classes as a show hunter in Bermuda with her teenage amateur owner. Her second foal has been super easy to start and also has an amateur-friendly temperament. Her next two foals by Londonderry exhibited stunning movement and sold as weanlings. Wolkendame has impressive performance credentials and is an excellent mother, always foaling without complications and raising her offspring with care but never possessive hovering. She has always shown obvious signs of heat and is perfectly behaved (the vet’s favorite!) for ultrasounds and inseminations. We have raised four frozen semen foals from her.

Her sire, Wolkenstein II, is a highly regarded son of Weltmeyer. He was Champion of his Stallion Performance Test as well as the 1993 Federal Champion Three-Year-Old Riding Horse. Wolkenstein II is also acclaimed as a broodmare sire. He has excellent breeding values for type, foundation, dressage, trot, canter and rideability. Wolkenstein II consistently ranks in the Top 20 for dressage and type on the list of Leading Sires in the annual Jahrbuch Hengste. He has sired 46 licensed stallion sons, 156 States Premium daughters, and 121 Verden auction horses. Wolkendame’s damsire, Tumble Wind xx, sold for $100,000 in 1966 and was best known in Denmark as the sire of the stallion Temple Wind who was approved by several registries.
