    I didn't read this till just now, but on the 16th Rosenthal passed away at the age of 19. I don't know all the details at this point. One of my personal favorites and a phenomenal horse and sire. The horse world now in relation to warmbloods, are missing one of their finest now. Stunned me to hear this, he was truly a great one.

    I'm very sadden to her this news, and it sounds like they are not sure of the cause yet. Rosenthal has been one of the top producing Hunter and Dressage stallions in the United States. He is the sire of our very lovely 3 year old filly.

    Beautiful stallion. I love the Rubinstein line, he really stamped his get. You can clearly see Rosenthal's ancestry.
    I wonder what caused his death.

    He was very prepotent. Our filly definitely looks like Rosenthal.

    I am very interested to see if they discover what caused his death.

    Yes, on Eurodressage today. I went back to sleep, but I doubt they still know what caused it to report. They'd said he just started failing and passed on the third day.

    Your filly is gorgeous and a good example of his foals imo. Stamped them well.

    I imagine you were as surprised as I was this morning. I'd woken up and was reading and saw it, promptly went back to bed. I can't imagine the loss for the owners tbh.

    Wow, very sad . He was stunning. His head and neck especially were just divine.
