Line Kaplan
Family Kizil Mer

Gulistan was one of the first sons (if not the first one) of the line-founder 721 Kaplan himself. His dam 1167 Djakhan (Djeiran) was a granddaughter of 85 Dor Bairam by sire and 569 Skak by dam. Gulistan comes from damfamily Kizil Mer. Gulistan was born in 1965 at Komsomol Stud, Turkmenistan. He happened to be brought over to Latvia and as far as we know he had no purebred offsprings before that. In Latvia he spent most of his life at 3 Vitolu Stalli where he was used as a sire on sport-horse mares based on Latvian breed. He was used at first in show-jumping and afterwards mainly in dressage, getting to high level in this. Gulistan had very good movements and jumps - all that he passed on to his foals, too. His foals from warmblood mares also excelled in sports, mainly in eventing. One of his sons from a Latvian-mix mare won a championship of the USSR in three-day-event among young horses. Gulistan was also used in Trakehner breeding in Belorussia for couple of years where his blood remained in Trakehners through some of his daughters.
Gulistan had had a remarkable personality with nice powerful Akhal-Teke look. He had been graded Elite, with grades 9:10:8:7. His height was measured in Latvia as much as 168cm!

In spring 2007 we got the very first purebred foal from Gulistan - the black filly Guli-Star out of Sonata. This was really exciting, as it happened over 25 years after Gulistan himself had passed away! In 2013 we got another sensational foal by him - the buckskin filly Gul-Oylyk out of Ozariya who became the European Champion among yearlings in 2013 in Germany. And in 2015 we got another great filly Akargul by him out of Ayra.
We are very happy to have the chance to use Gulistan's unique bloodlines in our breedings!

As Gulistan's semen is very rare and unique, even breeders in Russia are interested in using it. Unfortunately there are not very many doses left, so we will not sell Gulistan's semen out but will use it only on our best mares. Check back to see Kaplan's youngest grandchildren for sale in the future!
