Nobody was more surprised when this fellow arrived as he was one of two! Monozygotic twins who had been undetected during our routine scanning. Both survivors and absolute little stunners with bags of character and fun.

It is incredibly rare that twins survive a pregnancy, the fact that both were born and have survived was incredible! They went full term and other than one being slightly smaller than the other, both were standing and feeding within the hour. A pair of little miracles but not an experience we would wish to repeat despite being incredibly lucky in this instance!

Sired by GFS Fire and Ice, our exciting young AES Graded perlino leopard spotted stallion, their amazing mum, Liosin Lux is also the dam of our Graded stallion Paddy of Liosin. She is by the KWPN stallion Olympic Lux. He is a proven sire of remarkable progeny. He competed up to six years of age jumping National 1.30m classes. He comes from the same mareline that has produced the stallions Tenerife VDL and Quasimodo Z to name but a few. His dam Filomin is a Keur mare and a GP showjumper. Second dam Wilomena II is half sister to the great showjumper Paloma.

Olympic Lux has sired International showjumpers but is also a dual purpose sire with many successful eventing progeny. Sired by Lux Z, one of the most successful stallions in International showjumping. He competed at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. A winner of over a million euro, his pedigree is something of a blue chip dynasty in the world of International competition, with a litany of champions peppering every extension of the family tree!


The twins sire: GFS Fire and Ice

GFS Fire and Ice is our own homebred young AES Graded stallion. His sire Colourthyme Kajika who stood with us for many years is a rare breed knabstrupper x Kinsky warmblood . There is a page describing his ancetry on this website.

Fire and Ice's dam, Folly, is a big moving and very powerful mare, retired from Eventing due to an accident.

Folly is by the leading sire of event horses Rock King. Himself the sire of the Olympic eventer Rock Model. He also sired four competitors at the 2008 CCI **** at Luhmuhlen.

Rock King was renowned for his fantastic temperament, excellent paces and superb jumping technique. As a four year old Rock King won the Stoneways Potential Showjumper and was in the final twelve for the Young Event Horse Class. From there his career sky rocketed. Sadly, his career was tragically cut short whilst competing at Tweeseldown Horse Trials in 2000 where he sustained a fatal injury. He was at that time already Advanced, accruing over 200 BE points during his short career which would otherwise undoubtedly have seen him feature in many major horse trials.

He was sired by, Just a Monarch. A stallion that has produced many superb competition stock over the years. Many of his proven progeny including the International Event Horses, Kings Jester, Just an Ace and Midnight Monarch, as well as point-to-pointer Mark Methane who has won over 30 races.

Despite being one of twins and now living independently from his sibling who has now been sold, 'Bugsy' as he is known is as well rounded a character as you would hope to meet.  Absolutely fearless and a natural extrovert by nature, this unusually marked colt is going to be a very exciting prospect under saddle.

Bugs is an absolute speed demon, he has boundless energy, incredible agility and the biggest heart. He would effortlessly turn a hoof to anything from polo, eventing, endurance and probably everything in between! This yearling loves life, people and is both sociable and engaged in everything he becomes involved in.

His breeding boasts some rather inspirational equine athletes, even up to Olympic level and he shows great promise as a future competitor wherever he is aimed with his natural gymnastic ease of movement and unbeatable attitude.

Fabulous to handle, easy in all ways and just such a wonderful little character who is going to bring enormous fun to whoever is lucky enough to join him on his journey.

This little stunner should reach a height at maturity of 15.2hh approx
