nikau-2012-5Sire: Kaitake Tuatahi
Dam: Cocotero Acentuar

Nikau also has a great nature as does his sire Kaitake Tuatahi and granddam Willowburn Pebbles.

Davidoff, Kaitake Tuatahi’s Sire has also left his mark, with lovely paces.

We are very pleased with the results of this breeding. Obviously Nikau will not be a pony and much to Elsa’s delight is looking at this stage by growing into a good strong 16hh mount for her.

Elsa chose Coco, who was unfortunately for the breeders injured as a foal, as a breeding prospect.

She is by Ramazotti, well known for his jumping bloodlines being by Ramiro Z, one of the most successful sires of show jumpers in the world known as the “King of Sires” and dubbed “Stallion of the Century”. He also sired Grand Prix dressage stars Rio Negro, Rampal and Lectron.

Ramazotti had scores of 10 for character, 9 for temperament and many 8s for his canter and jump he is out of Bilithya, one of the highest decorated mares in The Netherlands.

The cross with Kaitake Tuatahi has been very successful. He imparts a great willingness, good bone and temperament – something that has helped us learn and work with all his offspring with ease so far. A good all-round stallion with a well balanced nature.
