The Hanoverian licensed stallion Lauries Crusador xx has been euthanized in the morning of 22 October 2013. The bay Thoroughbred foundation stallion was 28 years old. Last week Lauries Crusador suffered from colic symptoms and was transported to the equine clinic. His blood values indicated a heavy infection of the spleen. In order to save the stalion from more pain and a heavy operation, the Celle state stud decided to take the stallion back home and give him a few last days at home in peace before being euthanized. This morning the stallion again suffered from colic and was put down in the presence of his year long handler Fred Müller. Lauries Crusador xx (by Welsh Pageant xx x High Top xx x Le Levanstell xx) was born in Great Britain in 1985 and started his career on the race track. He achieved a GAG of 90.5 kilogram and was therefore allowed to be considered for German warmblood breeding.
