The stallion, bred by Stal Roelofs, spent his last days at Stal Brouwer in Gieten, which brought him back last year following his period in France. Namelus R died at the age of 26 years.

It was Stal Brouwer that announced; "It was with pain in our hearts that we had to say goodbye to Namelus R today. After a great career in sport and breeding, in which he proved himself as a breeding stallion with numerous 1m60 horses and approved stallions with many studbooks. We look back on him with a lot of pride and pleasure and we have enjoyed the last years that he was in our stables."

Due to an injury, Namelus R was unable to fully exploit his great potential as a showjumper, but through his offspring has proven himself in both sport and breeding.  Several of his products are competing in international sport and several are approved stallions. A few of his offspring are the KWPN-approved stallions Tolan R (Aramis Z), Arthos R (Mermus R), and Dexter R (Contender).
