Love Connects x Bustron x Wahtamin xx
Very handsome and all-round bred.
Rufus Jac is a picture perfect stallion. He has a beautiful model and he is strong musceled.
A foal that can be produced all-round. Interesting for dressage, jumping or eventing.
Mother is the Elite, IBOP-drs, D-OC mare Racey (s. Bustron). This rock-hard 23-year-old mare is mother of the 1.45m. show jumper Griet (s. Bugatti VDL) who has already brought several riders to this level.
In the mare line we find the Grand Prix horse Marko (s. Damocles) and the NRPS approved stallion Bonaparte (s. Balzflug) who jumped at 1.20m. in show jumping and competed in dressage at PSG level.
Sire is the four-year-old Love Connects. He will jump his first courses this year. Despite his young age, he excels in rideability. A constant jumper with a great mentality, a lot of impulse at the jump and a good use of his body.
It is not without reason that the KWPN research report refers to an 'honest and eager to work stallion with a good attitude'. At the stallion test in the fall 2019, Love Connects showed a high to very high willingness to work, which is a very important characteristic for a successful career. Also mentioned as a plus are his balance, active canter, good foreleg technique and a good bascule.
There is also no shortage of jumping genes. Sire Connect was internationally active with Caroline Müller (1.35m level), just like his sire Connor (1.45m). Great-grandfather Casall became world famous with is rider Rolf-Göran Bengtsson for his participation in international championships such as the Olympic Games in London, the World Championships in Caen and various World Cups. In addition, Casall also appears to be a top progenitor and he inherits his intelligence.
The dam line of Love Connects is the well-known Twiggy line, with which breederJan Greve achieved so many breeding and sporting successes. Out of Twiggy (s. Lucky Boy xx), he bred, among others, the international jumping KWPN stallion Creool. Her great-granddaughter Hello Twiggy BB (the dam of Love Connects) is an elite daughter of Quality Time TN, with Jeroen Dubbeldam winner of the 1.60m Grand Prix of San Patrignano. Hello Twiggy is bred out of the preferent elite mare Origgi (s. Burggraaf), who produced a 1.40m jumper by Chin Chin and is also the grand- and great-granddam of several international jumpers from 1.40m to 1.50m level, including the 1.50m jumper Farnell. (s. Carom). The third dam Iggy (s. Libero H) also produced several sport horses, including Rochefort (s. Voltaire), who jumped 1.50m.
