Ihop SDS (Hoppy) is going to be available a month after weaning. His Sire Ilios was injured as a weanling and due to the nature of his injuries, never had a show career but it has not at all effected his career as a stud. Because he was deemed unsound for riding, he was not able to complete the performance tests and was therefore ineligible for inspection and registration with AHS or Old NA. Ilios’s pedigree is superb and a very nice outcross to other more familiar big names/lines. His Sire “Wellsaid” is a major stakes placed black type TB. And the sire of many successful top Event horses. Ilios’s Dam Sidnae (deceased) was a prelim Event horse. She is sired by Salieri, who is an Olympic show jumper and Dressage horse (which in itself is very impressive) but he is also the sire to 4 time Olympic gold medalist In Dressage Salinero and Olympic gold medalist show jumper Seven up. Breyer has created a collectible Salinero horse model. Ilios has numerous half siblings competing in upper levels of Show jumping, Dressage and Eventing, as well as Fox hunting first flight. Further back on his sires side of his pedigree is major stakes placed winner AP Indy (who is well known for producing not only fast race horses,) but incomparable steeple chasers and event mounts. Further back you will see two triple crown winners… Seattle Slew and Secretariat and even good ole Northern Dancer.
His Dam was bred by one of the top Trakehner breeders in the country. Two Tone KD went on to do some eventing before she became a broodmare. She has a huge trot and a lovely canter. She scored very well at her OLD/ISR inspection. Her foals are very correct, and have friendly personalities.
Hoppy is dark brown at the moment, but we suspect he will grey. He was a very late 2021 foal, and was born 8/16/2021. He will be handled everyday he is with us, and should be a very well rounded foal once weaned. We had him inspected by the Oldenburg/ISR registry, he scored extremely well for only being 3 weeks old. He overall averaged a 7.8, and got a 7.9 on overall impression. He is eligible in his future show career for Oldenburg/ ISR year end awards even though he just has a birth certificate from OLD/ISR. We also can arrange for him to be gelded. Extra ground training is available for an extra fee.
