GFS Eskimo Jo 'Mojo'

2014

Paddy of Liosin x Corrado I/Landgraf I

https://sporthorse-data.com/pedigree/gfs-mojo

Graded and Licensed with the Anglo European Studbook

This young horse is the culmination of all the hard work, passion and planning...he is our dream....! 

'Mojo' is incredibly special in so many ways. Orphaned at three months, we lost his very precious dam suddenly and unexpectedly. 'Aunty Alice' as she was known (real name N-She's All) was an enormous horse in terms of both presence and height  with a personality just as impressive! She was a horse of a lifetime and has passed on her very special qualities to her equally impressive son.

Aside from our emotional connection to this utterly beautiful and enormous golden horse, he has superb conformation, a kind and willing nature. He is very loving, has a huge personality and although cheeky on occasion, he is incredibly intelligent and has a keen intelligence and willingness to learn.

Mojo is is enormously athletic and will be aimed at either a show jumping or eventing career.

Ancestry

Sired by our own young stallion Paddy of Liosin. His bloodlines are predominantly of show jumping providence. His sire is Crown's Ace of Pearl a stallion who has been campaigned extensively as show jumper, dressage and eventer, he is by the ZfdP International GP show jumping stallion, Crown's Blue Pearl. A horse bred from the rare and multi talented Kinsky breeding program and infused with high performance thoroughbred bloodlines. The German stallion A-Dur compliments this impressive jumping providence. 

Paddy's dam is by Olympic Lux (Lux Z/Lord Calando/Ahorn Z x ​Ahorn/Nimmerdor/Vicomte Grandieux), the KWPN stallion and prolific sire of of over 15 show jumpers and 15 eventers, all competing at top level. His sire, Lux Z has made an enormous impact on Holsteiner sports breeding. As well as being an Olympic show jumper he has sired over 60 show jumpers and significant numbers of both eventers and dressage horses.

Dams Ancestry

Now this is where Mojo's breeding becomes really interesting!

Mojo's dam, N-She's All, a Head Stud Book and premium graded Holsteiner is 100% jump bred.  Her sire, Corrado is yet another Olympian with over 120 show jumping progeny to date. He is considered as the founder of a Holsteiner sire line of his own!  In his stallion performance test he scored an unprecedented 10 for both his loose jump and that under saddle. 

Corrado is by Cor de la Bryere, a stallion that revolutionised the jumping horses' breeding. He too had an incredible impact in Holsteiner and he occurs in more than 80% of the top performance pedigrees as well as being credited with improving the breed's jumping technique. His sire Rantzau was from 1971-1973 the leading sire of dressage horses, show jumpers and event horses in France. He is regarded as the best thoroughbred stallion who ever entered the French sport horse breeding industry.

Corrado's dam, Soleil was a Nations Cup eventer and was herself by the extraordinary jumper, Capitol I, a stallion known to have 'put wings' on a legion of offspring. It is thanks to his influence that the Cottage Son xx line became one of the most influential thoroughbred infusions in Holstein breeding.

Holsatia IX, 'Mojo's' dams dam, was by the show jumping Olympian/World Championship stallion Landgraf I. Labelled by many as the 'stallion of the Century'. Immortalised in bronze at Elmshorn where he stands as the symbol of the modern Holsteiner Sport Horse. Her dam, Wicke III was by Caletto II (a son of Cor de a Bryere).


Achievements to Date

The evident potential in 'Mojo's bloodlines and the legendary ancestry that graces this stunning young horses pedigree indicates true potential on paper and his Grading results when presented to the Anglo European Studbook certainly seem to add gravitas to this.

Presented as a two year old, late in his second year GFS Eskimo Jo both stunned and impressed with his tremendous stature and character. He was awarded out of 10. An 8 for trot, 7 Posture and Balance, 9 Canter, 7 for both Reflexes and Technique. His scope over a fence was awarded and 8 and his attitude a 9. A horse for the future was the general concensus!

Mojo has been very lightly backed and now turned away to mature and strengthen his Herculean frame!

He has produced two exceptional foals from two very different mares in 2017 from the two year old test cverings we routinely conduct to assess potential offspring quality.

This page is a work in progress......we expect it to become quite an exciting story!

GFS Eskimo Jo - A video diary from day one to his third birthday!

Very boring for most , I know! However, we have religiously photographically documented all of our home breds from day one and find it fascinating to revisit the evolution from new born to the 'romping, stomping proud showman/woman at maturity...well in 'Mojo's case anyway! Now standing at 18hh, he is quite some horse! This video stops on his third birthday, I cannot wait to document the next three years!
