Weltstern as a young stallion in Germany
Photo credit: Greenstone Farm 2005 photo of Weltstern at 23
years of age.
Weltstern was an extremely well bred
Oldenburg stallion, licensed and approved in Germany and ISR/Oldenburg
approved in the U.S. He was purchased as a 9 year old as the foundation
stallion for my sporthorse breeding program and has also been one of
the foundation sires of my sportpony breeding project. One daughter and
two grand-daughters are currently broodmares here on the farm and we are
continuing the line through Flint, an approved son owned by Greenstone
Farm in VA.
Weltstern's sire, WeltAs, was named the top producing dressage sire in both
1995 and 1996. He produced numerous top quality offspring, the best known being
Bonfire, winner of multiple World Cup dressage titles and a member of several
medal-winning Olympic teams for the Netherlands.
Weltstern himself sired an extremely high percentage of premium foals
from those presented to registries for approval. He has had several sons
approved as stallions as well as a
significant number of successful competition horses in dressage, jumping and
eventing. He himself competed in the U.S. in dressage at 14 and 15 years of age, starting at 4th level and going to Intemediare I with scores
in the 60s.
owned jointly by Kaleidoscope Farm and Greenstone Farm in his later
years and solely by Greenstone Farm in Culpeper, VA in the years after
the Kaleidoscope Farm program began downsizing to ponies and passed away
peacefully of natural causes at the farm in 2012. Their very successful
breeding program continues the line with a son and a number of
daughters. For more information on Weltstern visit the Greenstone farm
kind disposition, his personable character and his prepotency for
outstanding movement has secured a permanent place in my heart for this
magnificent stallion. I feel privileged to have owned him and will
always be grateful for the experience.
Rest in peace, Weltstern.
Windwalker will always be one of my favorite Weltstern babies,
the colored colt that it took me 10 years to produce. His new owner plans a show
career as a hunter for him and we feel fortunate to have three of his daughters
in the breeding program here at Kaleidoscope to carry on his talent and his

Owned by Liz Lindenauer of Bozeman, MT she qualified in 2004
for the USDF region 6 championships at 2nd level, with scores
in the mid-60s and expects to be competing at 3rd level in 2005.
is a gelding from the first foal crop I bred by Weltstern. Out
of a Thoroughbred mare, he was sold as a yearling and is now
eventing with his owner in the northwest. He competed two years
with Shea at Prelim with several placings in the top five and
competed on a limited basis at Intermediate in 2004. Shea says
that he is an incredible event horse, probably the best she
will ever hope to have and so reliable that even as a 6 year
old a local 12 year old girl won 4H hunter classes with him
when he was literally a last-minute substitute for her own horse
who went lame.
was from the same first foal crop by Weltstern in Wyoming. Out
of a gold champagne mare of unknown breeding but said to be
part Morgan, Marilyn was foaled with a pale gold coat and baby
blue eyes, with a habit of looking back over her shoulder and
batting long eyelashes at her audience, and could have been
named nothing else but Marilyn Monroe.
