Sire: Gaudi is the first and only Totilas offspring standing in the USA. Imported in January 2018 by Shooting Star Farm, his dam is the elite preferent prestation mare Annabel, by De Niro. Bred by the Jansen family at Stable Joppe in The Netherlands, Gaudi has an exceptional pedigree. His dam also produced the KWPN licensed stallions Bretton Woods and Chagall D&R, and from these same dam line comes the licensed stallion Four Legends KS. Annabel leads the KWPN index for dressage mares. She has produced top sport and keuring horses. Gaudi was presented at the 2014 KWPN Stallion Licensing and was accepted for the Stallion Performance testing, but due to a sport career ending neck injury in training, he could not participate. He is fully approved with the AES studbook.
Dam: HangOn Poppy Girl is a C1 approved Irish Draught mare standing at 16.2 hands. She received Bronze Merit for movement and conformation with 8's for both. The inspector's comments were that she is a "well balanced, four square mare with deep body. Lots of presence, four good limbs. Excellent movement." Poppy is the maternal half sister to our Irish stallion Blackshires Ares.
