Madiva is the mostly white pinto filly with two blue eyes in the video below


DOB: 04-15-2017


Madiva is a black and white homozygous tobiano filly sired by Picasso's Masterpiece out of I. Ce-Celia Goodshapes. She has a curious nature and is very interested in the people around her. We're excited to see this filly grow up and be a part of our breeding program.

About Madiva's Sire:

Picasso's Masterpiece is a Barock Pinto stallion. The breed is also called Pinto-Barockpferd, Barock Pinto, Baroque Pinto, Friesian Pinto, Pinto Friesian, and Friesian Warmblood. Picasso was imported from Denmark in 2009 as a foal. He is registered with ECHA-ESV in Germany. Picasso received the highest scores given to a foal by ECHA-ESV at a Denmark keuring to date. His scores were: Type: 9.5, Construction: 9.0, Correctness: 8.0, Movement: 9.5 Overall impression: 9.0, Total: 45 Points, Mean: 9.0. In the United States he is registered as a Foundation sire with the Friesian Heritage Horse's new Baroque Pinto Warmblood Heritage Book. He is also registered with the Friesian Sporthorse™ Association (FSA) in the Main Studbook and in the Bronze Elite Performance Book. He is also registered with the Friesian Blood Horse Registry where he achieved Sanctioned Stallion status.

Picasso’s pedigree is very special and only contains Friesian and Warmblood. He gets his thick mane and tail from the Friesian stallion Oege 267 who was known as "The Hair Man" in the Friesian world because horses in his line tend to have the thick long manes and tails that he was famous for. Picasso's pedigree has more Friesians than Warmbloods and if you go back in his pedigree on his sire's side, his Warmblood ancestor is the famous Groninger sire named Bonte Nico (also known as Bonte Nico van Friesland).  Bonte Nico was the first Barock Pinto. His sire was a Groninger and his dam was a Friesian.  Bonte Nico is discussed in the history section of the About Barock Pintos. According to the Vereniging Het Groninger Parrd, (The Groninger Registry and Association in the Netherlands), the Groninger horse is described as "a heavily built Warmblood horse with three good gaits. It is a rare, but versatile breed with a good character." The Groninger horse provided the foundation for the creation of the Dutch Warmblood and almost went extinct because of it. Picasso's pedigree traces back to the original lines used to create both the Barock Pinto and the Dutch Warmblood breeds.

Picasso is DNA tested heterozygous for Tobiano, which means he will throw the pinto color pattern 50% of the time. When bred to a Friesian mare there is a 50/50 chance of getting a tobiano foal with each breeding but when bred to a tobiano mare the percentages of a colored foal increase based on the mare's DNA profile. Picasso has a willing attitude, very calm temperament, is very intelligent and has a strong desire to please, which he passes along to his offspring.

About Madiva's Dam:

I. Ce-Celia Goodshapes is a very unique mare. The first thing we noticed about her is that she has a detailed dark pattern in her tobiano coat color that looks exactly like a Friesian head with a mouth, ears and a flowing mane (see bottom center picture). Viewed from the back, her left side is white and her right side is black. Her pinto pattern is truly spectacular. Ce-Celia moves as if she’s floating on air. She has excellent confirmation, a forward walk and great hind action where she steps well under her body and pushes from the rear. It’s no wonder that she was awarded 1st Premie and Champion of the entire BPS keuring in the Czech Republic as well as Champion of the foals.

Ce-Celia’s sire is Ceasar (King x Olympic Ferro x Samber), a KWPN homozygous black and homozygous tobiano stallion that has been competing in Belgium under the name Ceasar Ter Linden. He is a stunning stallion with impeccable Warmblood breeding and he is full brother to Ringo (also homozygous black and homozygous tobiano) who competes as Goshka Ringo and is currently showing at M level dressage.

Ceasar’s sire is King, a black and white KWPN driving stallion, who drives alongside mares. In 2006 King was seen around the world when he helped lead over 100 horses stranded by flood waters in Holland. This bravery showed proof of his level headed temperament. King is out of the KWPN Keur, Preferent, Prestatie Dutch Warmblood Wanda whose sire is the legendary Pericles. Wanda is also a full sister to Samber.

King’s sire is Purioso. He was very successful at his stallion testing and scored an 8 for free jumping and 9 for jumping under saddle. Purioso has five KWPN approved sons. His offspring are well known for their jumping ability and fantastic gaits. He is one of the founding horses for specialized show jumping and dressage pedigree lines. Purioso produced three Olympic horses, Olympic Wendela, Olympic Cocktail and Olympic Ambush. Wendela and Cocktail are two very different horses in different disciplines, one at the highest level of Jumping and the other in Dressage.

Purioso’s sire is Furioso II, one of the founders of the modern European sport horse breeding. Even today he is still influencing many studbooks in Europe with his sons, grandsons and great-grandsons. Some of his prodigy include Voltaire and Concorde in Holland and Fidelio and Florestan 1 in Germany. Furioso II became the symbol of the modern Oldenburg sport horse breeding. Furioso II produced 200 state premium mares and no less than 68 approved sons. Furioso II influenced breeding worldwide. His full brother is the French stallion Mexico, who’s son Le Mexico became famous in Holland as a producer of jumping horses.

Ringo’s dam is Lianne, who was sired by Olympic Ferro and whose dam was Cindy, another Samber daughter, so Lianne’s damsire is Samber. Olympic Ferro was a Dutch sensation at Aachen and one of the most famous dressage stallions of modern times. Samber is one of the greatest and most far reaching and influential of all Pinto Warmblood sires. In the history of the KWPN, Samber was the only pinto stallion to complete the 100 day performance test and gain approval in the KWPN studbook. He passed the performance test in 1979. His temperament scored him the maximum of 10. He was a very talented jumper, eventing, and dressage horse. He jumped at Z level with a 15 year old rider and when he returned to dressage he competed at Grand Prix. 

Olympic Ferro stood 16.3 hands and was one of the KWPN’s foundation stallions and a successful breeding stallion who sired eleven KWPN approved sons. He was also an approved stallion at the Hanoverian Verband, Danish Warmblood Society, the French and Oldenburg Verband and sired many approved stallions outside of the Netherlands. Ferro’s offspring are beautiful, with elegance, presence and talent for sport. They tend to have excellent toplines, a lot of room in the trot, excellent use of the hind legs, fine elevation, and excellent overall confirmation suitable for the upper levels of dressage.

When a Dutch horse competes in the Olympics, they are given the title Olympic, which goes in front of their names. Ferro received his title upon competing in the 2000 Olympics that were held in Sydney. He was ridden by Coby van Baalen for the Dutch team and won team silver medals, finished fifth individually and fourth in freestyle and he had an individual score of 74.92%. As a three-year-old he was champion of his performance test at Ermelo, where he achieved the outstanding results of 6.5--step, 8.5--trot and 8.5--gallop.

During his career Olympic Ferro won many Grand Prix and Grand Prix Specials. He is renowned for consistently achieving high scores for piaffe and passage. The KWPN awarded Olympic Ferro the "Keur" predicate in 2000 and the “Preferent” predicate in 2004. Olympic Ferro held the #1 position of the BN World Stallion Rankings late into his career and maintained an outstanding dressage index of 153 with the KWPN, boasting an impressive 87% reliability index. Olympic Ferro was also valued for his jumping influence with over 111 points in the KWPN's jumping index and an 80% reliability factor. On the 2009 WBFSH dressage stallion standings, Olympic Ferro is in 8th place.

Samber was the first and only pinto approved by the KWPN. In 1979 he passed his 100 day performance test with an overall of 160.2 points, which gained him an A pass. He successfully competed at ZZ level in dressage and Z level in jumping. His success wasn’t an accident. His sire was Pericles, Ster, Keur, Preferent, Kern, Super-Premium, one of the KWPN’s most influential, English bred, foundation Thoroughbreds. He was one of the few Thoroughbreds to receive Preferent status and sired over 2600 progeny. His offspring made excellent sport horses that excelled at both jumping and in dressage. While Pericles was best known as a dressage sire, he did some racing and jumping late in his career. In all he sired 12 approved KWPN stallions including Samber and is the maternal grandsire of Ulft.

On Ce-Celia's Friesian side of her pedigree, her dam is  Fea Fan Murer, a Ster Mare. Fea’s sire is Jesse 435 Sport and dam sire is Tsjibbe 388. Ce-Celia's pedigree also includes Friesian stallions such as Leffert 306, Tamme 276, and Bearend 347, Doeke 287 and Ulke 338 as well as many Ster, Model, and Preferent mares.
