breed Lipizzaners here on Howrse under the affix "Welcome to Vienna". All of my horses are bred only when
fully BLUPed and always with Aphodite's Tears to give them the sharpest
possible competitive edge. My Lipizzaners are given the
traditional names as set down by the formal
stud book. There are six classical stallion lines: Pluto, Conversano,
Maestoso, Favory, Neapolitano, and Siglavy. There are two other lines,
"Tulipan" a Croatian line, and "Incitato" a Transylvanian line, but as these are not officially recognized by the stud farm in Piber, I will not be naming after those lines.
Mares only receive one name, whereas stallions are given a two part name - the "stallion line" name that belonged to his sire, and his dam's name. For example, a stallion named Pluto Sambata would have had a sire from the Pluto line and a dam called Sambata.
are one of the oldest and purest breeds in the world and are most
famous for being the only horses used in the Spanish Riding School in
Vienna. As the SRS celebrates its 450th anniversary in 2015, I think it
is very appropriate that Lipizzaners have been launched here on Howrse.
Happy Howrsing everyone!
