respected mare line in Brandenburg. His dam
“Passionata” is by the Beach Boy son ,
“Brandenburger”, who made his performance

French blood through the stallion “Zeus”. On
Brandenburger’s dam line comes the excellent
Hanoverian stallion Wendekreis, admired for the
excellent riding and jumping horses he produced as

admired dam sire with Alalbaster and Wolkenstein I
