1. We will start with a picture of two of the most admired french horses of all time, also two with a great impact of the breed, Roquepine and Kerjacques. Our colleague Prof. Ulf Lindström of Sweden sent us this snapshot and explains: „The groom’s husband at Stable Sjöström is Frenchman, and his grandfather (passed away last year) was equine dentist and took the picture in 1972.”

Roquepine had only 4 foals, one with a major impact to the french and international trotting breed, Florestan (*1971, by Star’s Pride), her second was Granit (*1972, by Ayres), then she gave foal to two mares, Hague (*1973, by Kerjacques) and Ile Marie (*1974, by Fandango). The heritage of this maternal line is still very alive, e.g., look at this Pedigree.
