Meet the very beautiful GFS Bodacious. I was convinced he was a filly at foaling simply because he looked to pretty to be a colt! If he had been a she, she would most certainly be a keeper! He has the most enthusiastic, intelligent and extrovert character with an incredibly generous and kind nature. He is our fourth GFS Lord of the Dance and ZB Neforia foal with very good reason!
To make at least 16.1hh, his full siblings have found homes with a professional eventer, another is in the US to be professionally produced under saddle. I did retain his full brother last year who was equally heartbreakingly beautiful, in the hope of running him on as a future stallion. But, regretfully I decided that he was probably better gelded and he subsequently sold to a fantastic home where he is adored and will eventually be produced for jumping and eventing.
GFS Bodacious and his siblings have not only all shared an exceptional beauty and a magnetic presence that draws endless admiring glances. They have all been super intelligent, agile, fast, as well as expressive and fluid through all paces. Bodacious is incredibly supple and balanced in each gait and light on his feet and demonstrates superb physical control in all gaits and at all speeds!
He will be suitable for a serious amateur or professional; bursting with talent and the type of sensitivity that will make him completely in tune with the right rider and a keen wish to bond with those he trusts. He has a gregarious character, demanding attention and a close relationship with those who handle him as he is highly sociable, sensitive and thoroughly enjoys basking in attention.
GFS Bodacious is as fast as lightning, he is a joy to watch float across the arena and without a doubt, he will be brave enough to tackle any cross country course or indeed any other equestrian disciple where talent, willingness to perform and natural willingness to win are requisite.
His dam Neforia is a Graded Ster KWPN mare by the dressage stallion San Remo, campaigned by Edward Gall and whose female progeny number more than seven Ster Preferent.
Her damline is exceptional, her dam is an an Elite GP dressage mare by Haarlem and I think this is evident in his self carriage and ability to naturally collect, balance and extend with little effort at the breakneck speeds at which he prefers to travel! This is not a colt who is happy in anything other than first in line!
I believe this foal will be a very interesting and an exciting prospect for someone interested in a serious future, with the opportunity to produce a young horse who will be capable of excelling in dressage or show jumping or eventing. He will be a partner of a lifetime with whom an extraordinary relationship can be forged.
His sire GFS Lord of the Dance has proven himself a prolific producer of quality offspring with huge competitive potential who have to date attracted the attention of both the ambitious amateur and professionals. They are just starting to come out under saddle and we will doubtless soon be filling our news pages with tales of their sporting endeavours!
His sire is the stunning and charismatic GFS Lord of the Dance. A proven improver of mares and producer of top quality offspring with enormous talent and potential under saddle. His youngstock are starting to appear under saddle and likely to making their first forays into the competitive arena shortly. He has a Graded son already in the US, one of three who have been snapped up internationally. GFS Mikado is now on a professional yard and on the cusp of commencing a very exciting competitive career. GFS Bodacious's full sister was also snapped up by a buyer in the US to be produced for eventing.
GFS Lord of the Dance is just the softest sweetest and most beautiful young stallion. His bloodlines are of rare and unique performance Russian Trakehner, Akhal Teke bloodlines and infused with top TB proven racing ancestry. His impact on the offspring of the mares he covers is of improvement both physically; he throws offspring with lean, powerful lines and tremendous athletic strength and fluidity. Mentally, his foals are courageous, highly sociable and intelligent, each to date having demonstrated superb temperaments as well as imparting great beauty, elegance and loyalty.
