Approved Son: Absatz

Abglanz was perhaps the most influential stallion of modern time in the Hanoverian breeding district, and his infusion of Trakehner lightness and ‘blood’ can be clearly seen in today’s modern Hanoverian horse.

Although the lightly framed Trakehner was not initially welcomed in an era when agricultural horses were in great demand. Abglanz was royally bred, his dam, Abendluft was a full-sister to the influential stallions, Absinth, Absalon and Abendstern.

At the stallion station at Jork, he produced three famous brothers - Abhang I, II and III, as well as their full sister, Zukunft who competed with success internationally with Alwin Schockemöhle. Just 160 cm, Abhang I produced elegant horses but without great performance success. Abhang II, at 157 cm, was the smallest of the three, but produced great dressage horses, with charm and movement. Abhang III, the tallest of the three, sired mainly show jumpers. All told Abglanz sired 19 Approved sons, with progeny earnings of over DM324,000.

Abglanz and his progeny are credited with bringing about great improvement in the head and neck of the Hanoverian horses.

However Abglanz’s influence was most felt through his son Absatz who was out of the Hannoverian mare, Landmoor who on her sire’s side traces to the famous English Thoroughbred, Perfectionist xx, and on her dam’s side from the Shagya stallion Shagy XVII. Absatz was the sire of stallions such as Argentan, Arsenik, Akzent I and II, Admiral I and II, Aktuell and Aderlaß.

All told Absatz sired 40 Approved sons, 605 competition horses and 142 Verden auction horses. Absatz’s modern influence is perhaps most strongly felt through Weltmeyer who is out of Anka by Absatz.

Comments from German Trakehner Stallion Book:
Excellent in the type of the Trakehner horse with beautiful, masculine head; best position, length and carriage of the neck; good shoulder and good withers; harmonious body overall that is carried on four good, correct, sufficiently strong but a bit long legs; the midsection of the body is well-coupled to the forehand and hindquarters; particularly emphasized should be the broadly set hocks; his way of going is elevated and impulsive, very slightly paddling in front; in spite of his size he is very uniform overall and significant in his overall impression. His magnificent type is usually passed to his get, and so is the harmonious overall figure, with a rather good way of moving; good medium size is predominant.
