Whimsy is a superb top level jumper prospect by the exciting young stallion, Quidam's Pleasure [For Pleasure x Quidam de Revel x Cassini I] out of our imported sport mare, Fetiche [Zapatero VDL x Indorado x Libero H], who competed under Braden James in Europe before being imported and competing with a junior rider to 1.20 m.
Dam, Fetiche shows incredible scope and jumping style. She is a heavier boned horse with great conformation, quality legs and solid feet. Fetiche's pedigree is bursting full of 1.60 m jumpers. Her sire, Zapatero VDL, a son of the great Chin Chin, competed to 1.60 m himself and has produced numerous progeny at the top of sport, to 1.70 m. On her damside, Fetiche's family includes Indorado (Corrado I) and Libero H, all 1.60 m competitors. Her maternal family has produced high level sport horses in her direct dam line as well.
Sire, Quidam's Pleasure, was selected to compliment Fetiche. Quidam's Pleasure is a modern type stallion with long legs, he exhibits lightness, balance, carefulness and quick reflexes. He is a young, very promising stallion, with exceptional bloodlines for our sport.
Quidam's Pleasure's sire is none other than the great For Pleasure, a stallion with an exceptional international career. He was on four gold-medal-winning teams for Germany; two Olympic Games (Atlanta 1996 & Sydney 2000, he also finished 4th individually), and two European Championships, at Hickstead in 1999, where he was 5th individually and Donauschingen in 2003. In Donauschingen he won individual bronze, the first ever individual medal for Marcus Ehning. He’s also won gold and silver medals at the German National Championships. His career earnings totalled over 1.8 million euros, ahead of Milton, and his offspring have won well over 2.5 million euros among them. For Pleasure’s offspring speak for themselves. He has produced more than 80 grand prix jumpers, with 18 of these being licensed stallions; a total of 70 sons of For Pleasure sons have been approved by various studbooks. Some of his most famous offspring include Fit for Fun, Barron, Flora de Mariposa, Firth of Lorne, Epleaser vt Heike, Ornellaia, For Joy vt Zorgliet, Hello Forever and Funky Fred.
Quidam's Pleasure's dam, Greetings from Quidam – Stamm 7126 , is a direct daughter of the legendary, Quidam de Revel. Quidame was imported from Belgium in 2009. Quidam de Revel is without a doubt one of the most influential stallions of all time, with offspring such as Tlaloc La Silla, Nabab de Reve, Guidam, Verdi, Cirka de Blondel, Quibelle, Quel Homme etc. Grand-dam, Charisma de Sjiem, is a mare with incredible genetic potential through Cassini I and Caretino, two of the world’s best jumping horse progenitors.
