From the legendary sire Grannus, producer of many successful GP horses and out of a very strong multiple GP and stallion producing dam line comes the black 16.2H stallion, Grandom.
Grannus produced the international stars Top Gun, Imperial, Grannush and Grand Slam etc. With a lifetime total of well over five million DM so far, the offspring of this glossy black Hanoverian stallion including seven Olympic horses and more than 60 approved stallions that have made him one of the greatest sires in the world.
Grandom was licensed and stood several years in Belgium before moving to Hanover. Grandom was approved for breeding based on performance and was shown and bred at the same time while in Belgium. He has many clean rounds on his name.
Grandom has won and placed, while ridden by our daughter Susie, from the start: Modified Division Champion at Santa Rosa, Modified division res. Champion at Rancho Murieta, Winner Carousel Medal and res. Almaden Medal at Rancho Murieta. Besides wins over fences Grandom was winning and placing in hunter U/S classes. (Oct 2001).
The BWP evaluated about 50 of his foals, yearlings and two-year-olds. The report states that his offspring are very uniform, even though they were out of a large variety of mares. They have beautiful front ends, nice round top lines, excellent shoulder angles and very good usage of the hind end. They were well behaved and easy to handle.
Several of his talented offspring have been sold internationally. Besides talented jumping horses Grandom produces hunters. He has a very even jumping style and a nice ground-covering trot, from the shoulder, with little knee and hock action.
Grandom has been very successfully bred with both TB mares as well as Warmblood mares. In 2008 the mares Ghiselle and Galapagos R both passed their performance test and Galapagos R was excepted into the Hanoverian jumper breeding program.
