Despite the corona crisis and regional concerns about the transmission of the EVA virus, all foal shows in Schleswig-Holstein and outside the state were successful. In total, again almost 2,000 foals were registered and inspected during these tours.

The premium rate this year was a good 60%, which is a very good result. The relatively high percentage of premium foals also corresponds with the impressions gained at the outside events. The good quality of the foals, especially those that are descended from a Verband stallion or those that are the result of a global mating, convinced this year with well-considered mating decisions of the breeder. Excellent breeding and sport horses grow up here, which will do Holstein good and make sport interesting.

In the championships, the regional top of the foals is shown. Inside and outside of Schleswig-Holstein, foals of young sires were placed. The offspring of Corfu de la Vie, Crack, Keaton and United Way were especially positive. But also well-known names such as Casall, Cascadello I, Clarimo as well as Diarado and his son Dinken convinced as well as the offspring of breeding test stallions such as Million Dollar and Origi d'Or. The TG semen of the sires Cornet Obolensky, Conthargos and Diamant de Semilly, which comes from outside of Holstein, has found its place in Holstein and the right mares. Their names appear in the front line of the championship lists as sires of top foals. Manfred Nissen, Breklum celebrated a special success at the championship in Behrendorf. His mare Indira VI by Casall-Cassini I was the 2019 Elite Champion Mare of the Elite Show in Elmshorn. Mated to the Champion Stallion Diarado, she produced the Champion Filly  in North Frisia this year. An example of successful breeding with quality horses of Holstein origin.
