Paul Schockemöhle and partners are placing five stallions in Sweden; all of them approved by the Swedish warmblood society (SWB), and will make his whole stud book available to Flyinge's client base.
This means that Swedish breeders can continue to use Flyinge for covering their mares in 2012 and perhaps some of the staff will have employment during the next season.
The breeding department at Flyinge, a former state stud in Sweden which is celebrating its 350 year anniversary this year, is under threat of closing down.
According to people close to the management, the general director and his team have received an ultimatum from the board of the directors, which owns the Flyinge foundation: "Find a solution or close down within two weeks!"
Karl-Henrik Heimdahl will replace Niklas Lindgren as Managing Director of the Swedish Warmblood Breed Society (ASVH) as of 15 August 2012. Heimdahl will leave his position as breeding directory at the Flyinge state stud, where he has held the position since 2008.
