This sire is not owned by John Barlow Horses, but is one of the sires of choice for our young horses.

Status Quo was the undisputed winner of the 2006 Oldenburg licensing. His sire Stedinger, also a Champion stallion in his day, goes back to the line of Besinda which is responsible for the licensed full brothers Andrew and Armagnac (successful up to Grand Prix) and Waldsee (a Champion stallion).

The dam´s sire Quattro sired World Championship and Olympic Game horses that competed in three equestrian disciplines: dressage, show jumping and eventing. The granddam Lady Madonna, Oldenburg Champion Mare in 1999, meanwhile competes in advanced (S) level show jumping.

With Argentinus, whose off-spring have won millions, the dressage horse maker Manstein, the French stallion Tiro, the Holsteiner Tin Rocco and the Thoroughbred stallion Kronprinz xx, the pedigree of Status Quo contains stallions that have written breeding history well beyond the borders of Oldenburg.

In 2007 Status Quo finished his stallion performance test with good results, taking fourth place overall with a score of 127.38. His first foals reflect the type and noble looks of their sire. In 2008 Status Quo won tests for young dressage horses with scores up to 8.8.
