This stunning colt has it all. Top conformation, 3 top quality gaits and all the striking eye candy his color provides! He should mature to 16.2
You will notice the beautiful head he gets from the dam. He has the very nice dark nose and eye. Blaze. Very unique 2 white tipped ears! The color begins with (an almost strawberry) bay roan with small spots that entering the white blanket gradually get larger to the rump. The legs gradually darken to black right before the hoof with white with spots between the fetlock and knee /fetlock and hocks. The mane and tail black and tail contain some white. You literally cant stop looking at him!
His dam, Chika is a 17.2 hand large modern Westfalen imported from Germany. . Her sire Captain Fire started a career in 2003 as a premium stallion at the NRW licensing in Münster-Handorf, in 2004 he completed an excellent 30-day test in which he not only impressed in jumping, but also in all three basic gaits.
Captain Fire produced licensed and award-winning stallions. The licensed stallions Lexington and Con Capitol as well as the internationally successful jumper Corrada under Peter Charles / IRL also come from the Holstein line of 1446.
Since 2010 Captain Fire has been at the Zashkow stud in the Ukraine, he was there with his owner several times Ukrainian amateur champion and is still presented at tournaments there.
Before that, he was highly placed under Henrik von Eckermann's saddle before and after the breeding season in 2009, including at the international World Cup tournament in Leipzig. There he was able to place in all three youngster classes on the front ranks. With Marco Kutscher in the saddle, he was highly placed at international tournaments in Stockholm, Munich and Paris.
In 2007, Captain Fire, just barely beaten, took second place in the Holsteiner Masters Future Prize, after having secured the crown of the best five-year-old show jumper with 9.4 at the 2006 Bundeschampionat.
The pedigree is no stranger to the dressage ring. Today Ellen Trouille of Germany competes Captain Fleurop in FEI Dressage.
We also see the famous Westfalen stallion Rockwell who competed in jumping and dressage.
He sired 12 licensed sons in Germany, including Revolverheld, Rock Forever I and II and Rostropowitsch, as well as 12 state premium daughters. Daughter Rapalla was 2000 Rhinelander Elite Mare Champion.
He has no less than 517 offspring registered for sport with the German Equestrian Federation. 39 of his offspring are competing at S-level in dressage, 19 at S-level in show jumping.
His most famous offspring in sport are the international Grand Prix horses Rostropowitsch (Christoph Koschel), Rock Star (Anna Kasprzak), Rustenberg Gold (Tatiana Miloserdova), Romano K (Franziska Seidl), Ray Dance (Charlotte Jorst, Ann-Chrisin Wienkamp); as well as international junior riders' horses Rocky (Mieke Mommen) and Rockwell's Son (Mate Garai, Vera Furst).
Rockwell was born at Peter Schweimanns in Nettetal in 1993. Rockwell’s father was the Holsteiner Rocket Star, who led two legends in the first two generations: Ramiro and Landgraf. On his mother’s side, Rockwell was the third generation to have another sire from the history book: the Hanoverian Grande.
I would like to point out here the importance of Ramiro in both sides of the pedigree of this foal in the Dam and the Sire
Colorado is his sire. Colorado Skrødstrup is a Knabstrupper stallion imported from Denmark in 2006. He is a bay leopard spotted stallion and stands 15.3 hh. Colorado was only the 2nd registered and approved stallion in this country, and one of the only approved and registered Knabstrupper stallions to actively compete at any discipline in the U.S.
In Colorados pedigree we see the importance of Ramiro z through the bloodline. Based at the Zangersheide Stud of Leon Melchior, Ramiro was presented with a selection of superbly bred jumping mares. His most famous 'nick' was with the foundation mare, Heureka. The oldest daughter of this pairing was RATINA Z who ridden by Piet Raymakers and Ludger Beerbaum, won World Cup Finals, the European Championships, the Grand Prix of Aachen, individual Olympic Silver, double Olympic Team Gold, Team Gold at the WEG, and twice team gold at the European championships. Argentina Z another Heureka daughter (by Almé) produced with Ramiro the stallion sons: Rebel I Z, Rebel II Z, Rebel III Z and Rock Z.
Again in Rafaelli z you see double in the Ramiro /Alme blood.
We believe because of his high performance pedigree, gaits, conformation and color,not to mention his above average loving and outgoing character, this is a serious stallion prospect. The strong blood which produces high quality sport horses with very strong hind end making very impressive gaits. This foal is extremely smart, loves people and loves to perform. You can see more video and cute clips of his personality on facebook farm page as well as my personal page.
This is a once in a lifetime colt.
