Rumour has it that the award winning stallion Grosso Z (Goliath Z x Furioso II) has broken his pelvis and will no longer be able to breed, ever. Grosso Z sired, for instance, show jumping star Goldfever and Grand Prix dressage horse Gina Royal OLD. The 21-year old Hanoverian sire is currently standing at Gestut Wiesenhof, but is no longer available for breeding due to his injury. Though contacted thrice, Gestut Wiesenhof was not available to comment on Grosso's health.
More health issues in the stallion world. Welt Hit II, the Oldenburg sire by Weltmeyer x Hill Hawk xx, was also scratched from the Flyinge breeding roster due to health problems. Owned by De havikerwaard, Welt Hit II has been leased to the Swedish State Stud Flyinge, but was in the middle of the breeding season "unavailable due to accute illness." Flyinge was not available for comment. They are also probably too busy breeding, instead of maintaining good communication with their clients.
