Tolegro, the first licensed son of legendary stallion Totilas, has been sold to Marie Jose Proulx and will be standing at Canadream Farm in Ontario, Canada. He will be available for North American breeders with fresh semen this 2022 breeding season.

Tolegro is an 11-year old KWPN stallion by Totilas out of Tewri (by Krack C x Ferro x Variant). 

First Licensed Son by Totilas

Tolegro is an eye catching stallion that impressed breeders in Europe with his charisma, gorgeous looks, correct conformation and basic gaits.

Discovered as a foal by international German Grand Prix rider Bernadette Brune, Tolegro became the first fully licensed and performance tested son of Totilas. He was approved at the 2013 Oldenburg stallion licensing in Vechta and successfully completed his 30-day Stallion Performance Testing in Schlieckau in December 2014.

As a young horse he was competed in Germany by David Taylor and placed at the 2016 Oldenburg Young Horse Championships as a 5-year old.  Anja Engelbart produced him to small tour level and as of 2020 he was competed by owner Bernadette Brune, who produced him to Grand Prix level. 

Beauty, Genes, Rideability

Tolegro as a young horse
As a breeding stallion Tolegro has sired offspring all around the world after filling his book with breedings in Germany, Switzerland, France, Great-Brittan, Italy, Iceland, Sweden, USA, and Australia. 

Tolegro's first crop of foals arrived in the spring of 2015 and fulfilled the high expectations: His foals are beautiful and long-legged types, which have been awarded with premium titles and were sold at the Elite foal auction in Vechta.

In Switzerland his son Te Quiero de Monfirak (by Tolegro) finished fifth at the 2016 Swiss Foal Championship and the year before his full brother Tolas de Monfirak was fifth at the 2015 Swiss Foal Championship. Tiburon BMF (by Tolegro x GB Don Calypso) became the champion at the 2016 Swiss Regional Foal Championship in Frauenfeld. He also sold at auction for 12,000 CHF. In France  Feeling de Bonnaire  finished sixth at the 2015 French Foal Championship. At the 2015 Bavarian Elite Foal Auction, the third most expensive foal was a black colt by Tolegro x Florencio. Tolegro's Son BB (by Tolegro x Welt Hit Vi) has been selected for the 2019 Oldenburg Saddle Licensing.

A New Chapter in Canada
