Gazal VII - great grandsire of *Oman and *Szikra
Gazal VII was born in 1944 in Babolna, Hungary during the evacuation of the Stud to Bergstetten. He is one of the most significant sons of the outstanding stallion Gazal II. Although he did not go to Germany until he was 23 years old, he had a decisive influence on the Shagya breed there. He had an imposing frame and crest of neck, very marked withers, a long croup with smooth and dry coupling and joints. He had great self confidence and calmness and stood 15.31/2 hands.
Gazal VII has been called the “Stallion of the Century” - the embodiment of the breeding goal of the modern Shagya Arabian. Altogether there were 19 licensed sons of Gazal VII at stud in Germany. Several of his sons have been used in other German Warmblood breeds, including Czardas (Hanoverian), Gazal (Trakehner and East Friesian), Anakreon (Hanoverian), Nasrallah (Trakehner), and Amor (Trakehner, Hanoverian and Rheinlander).
