The Kladruber is not a Czech horse, but a horse from the Habsburg Monarchy --Andreas Hausberger (talk) 17:33, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

How is that? These horses have never been bred outside Bohemia and the breed was set up by a Bohemian aristocratic family. I don't understand your logic. That's like saying that the Reims Cathedral is not a French cathedral, but a cathedral from the Frank Empire. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.80.83.109 (talk) 15:47, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Old discussion and a long story, mostly linked to a Slovenian editor who started a "country of origin" spat over at another article. When we get into these spats (we have one like this at Karabakh horse too, Azerbaijan and Armenia are still spatting about Nagorno-Karabakh, sigh), our tendency is to list the national origin as of the time of origin and let the shifting boundaries be argued over by others at the geography articles.

Makes no sense:[edit]

"Maestoso (1773) and Favory (1779): born in Kladruby, became two of the six founding Lipizzaner stallion lineages. Favory returned to Kladruby after WWII, to add new blood to the decimated herd" That statement will mean (asssuming that WWII means World war II) that Favory was at least about 170 years old.

Not my edit. Probably meant the Favory line. Will need to check the sources or find some new ones. Montanabw(talk) 21:32, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Prose?[edit]

Should the timeline be changed to prose? RJFJR (talk) 21:15, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

I have no objection if you want to take a whack at it. I notice the link is shot, though, so someone would probably also have to use Wayback to find the source again. I'd do it, but don't have the time/motivation at the moment. Montanabw(talk) 22:19, 15 November 2012 (UTC)


Timeline of Imperial stud farm Kladruby nad Labem[1][edit]

Move to talk. There's something odd about some of the the tenses used, it sounds like it is saying the event occurred before a certain date but not sure when it occurred.

I restored it, needs cleanup (probably non-native speaker of English did original) and will clean it up a bit in the article namespace. Montanabw(talk) 21:32, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
