Origin of Count Lindenau (Cid’s) offical name.
In 1786 Count Karl Lindenau was appointed stud manager by Friedrich Wilhelm II of Prussia. In 1787 Count Lindenau inspected all the stock and rejected 25 stallions out of 38 in use and 144 mares out of 356 that had been used as breeding stock upto that time. After this all foals were branded with the seven pronged elk antler. The herds were divided up into riding and carriage types and colour segregation, Black, Bay, Chestnut and two mixed herds. The two mixed herds would have included coloureds and diutes. This segregation remained in effect until the flight in 1945. From The Trakehner by Dr Eberhard von Velsen-Zerweck and Erhard Schulte, published by J. A. Allen.
