Deacon is a big, sweet, easy going young gelding. With huge hock action and a powerful hind end, his movement was always impressive. He was also very keen and careful thru the chute.
Deacon's sire is Dammar. Dammar is a big moving, elegant stallion, who showed up to 1.20m before a career ending injury he sustained while playing in his paddock. He is powerful and scopey over fences, with an aggressive and bold way of going over fences. On the flip side, he is uphill, light on his feet huge suspension and cadence. His foals have consistently shared his athletisism and eagerness to jump, his big fancy movement and his uphill conformation. Dammar’s sire is Dublin. Dublin is often described as a stunning horse and brings with him through his outstanding Dutch heritage the qualities that today's breeders are seeking; temperament, ability, quality, conformation, athleticism, elegance, power and movement. Dublin not only has proven himself in the competition ring, but also as a top sire with many children and grand children competing successfully in Holland, and around the world. Dublin is very similar to his outstanding sire Ulft in appearance. Ulft's sons in Holland include Olympic Ferro, Dublin, Ducaat and Boston. Olympic Ferro was a silver medalist in dressage at the Sydney Olympics. For those whose passion lies in producing show jumpers it may be interesting to note that Jonathan Millar, Ian Millar's son, is currently riding an Ulft son, Fine Line. This young International Grand Prix jumper was an alternate on the Canadian Olympic team for the 2000 Sydney Olympics. It is also interesting to note that Ulft himself made his debut in showjumping. Ulft is a descendent of the versatile Furioso xx line. Ulft's famous Dutch sire, Le Mexico (by Mexico) was known for his ability to produce top jumping horses and very good movers. Mexico, of course, is a full brother to Furioso II. Dublin's sire line has produced many Olympic medalists in both jumping and dressage.
Dammars’s dam’s sire is Evergreen. Evergreen, passed his performance test in Adelheidsdorf in 1988, finishing 4th out of 38. Evergreen has exceptional jumping talent, which comes from his famous sire, Eiger I, producer of both top dressage and jumping horses. Eiger I is also the sire of the famous jumping stallion Espri, as well as Canada's Elute, successfully competed in international show jumping by Mac Cone.
Deacon's mom, Sansoucci TM, was a show jumper herself, who was bred because her owner didn't have time to ride her. During her first delivery, her pelvis was injured and she never returned to sport. She however was an incredible producer for us, giving us FIVE exceptional performance prospects.
