Servus was a sire of very good jumping horses, he mostly produced chestnut with flaxen mane and tail. SPS Allerliebste is one of those light chestnuts being a granddaughter of Servus.

Cardinal XX produced lovely type offspring with good gaits,talent over fences and to top it off first class rideability. He was a producer of many good broodmares but had hardly any stallion sons.
The best two being Cavalier and Carrera. Cavalier produced offspring for all level of sport up to the highest level (Grand prix) in Jumping,dressage and driving. Offspring up to M/A level in eventing. A high amount of winning offspring in jumping as well as dressage. His son Blue hors Cavan is a very talented Grand Prix dressage mount in Denmark.His son Carrera produced Anne Kursinski Grand Prix jumping mount “Starman”.

Seneka Is by Senator sire to Sender, this is where the trakehner line of Semper Idem starts. This is what starts the S-line as seen in Stakkato, Salieri, Salvano, Sherlock Holmes to name a few in modern use.
