Sadly, Brandenburg's Windstar
passed away in December of 2011.
a kind and generous horse with great heart,
and we all miss him.
His legacy lives on in his offspring.
in time's own space
There must be some sweet pastured
Where creeks sing on and tall trees
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.
