Coloured (Red & White) 16.2hh Dutch/Irish 2013. Graded with Anglo European Studbook (UELN:8260GB45195543N)
An outstanding young stallion with exceptional bloodlines, Popeye is without doubt one of the most stunning examples of a coloured Stallion currently available. He possesses exceptional movement with a calm and careful jumping style and excels already not only in dressage (Always placed in the first 3 with over 68%) but is also now proving himself show-jumping. He will start his eventing career this season and he has a great attitude proving himself bold, sensible and honest cross country and is very kind natured and easy to handle with his mares. Popeye's sire is the well known Beetlejuice by the famous Hello Oscar who was ridden by Geoff Glazzard and placed 3rd in the Hickstead Derby 1998 and ranked 9th with BHD, with winnings in excess of £100,000. Hello Oscar's sire Dallas is himself a Grade A Show-jumper and his dam Nice & Easy is an International Grade A Show-jumper. Popeye's dam an intermediate eventer Quilted Giraffe is by the famous advanced eventer Welton Ambassador.
With his superb laid back temperament he is an ideal sire for those wishing to produce not only top class quality event and showjumping horses, but nice even tempered alrounders too.
