DAM LINES AND FAMILIES AT MOSCOW STUD FARM NO. 1
Moscow Stud Farm No. 1 is unique in its dam stock, which was entirely formed by five mares. Each of these dam families — Gichka-Govorushka, Kadetka, Keramika, Kaleria, and Tochka (out of Barvikha) — is unique and valuable for the breed as a whole. These dams are the most valuable fund of the Orlov breed and stand at stud for many breeders in Russia and abroad. The Stud Farm has bred many first-class mares who, in turn, established their own dam lines and families throughout Russia. Each year, horses from these families take traditional prizes at the country's hippodromes and win championships and ring dressage competitions. These mares’ offspring have regularly set Soviet and Russian national records.
