A very special title holder.
Total Caledonia was Ic premium stallion, second reserve winner and in many respects the “most complete horse” of the Oldenburg Stallion Days 2023 in Vechta. Brilliant in terms of type and quality in all three gaits without exception – sovereign in every respect! Total Caledonia embodies sporting qualities for the highest demands, has an unshakeable nerve and learns in an exemplary manner with great eagerness.
The sire Totilas, already legendary in his lifetime, was double European Champion at Windsor 2009, won three gold medals at the World Championships in Lexington 2010 and set several world records. In the meantime, more than 30 sons have been licensed in Germany alone and more than 20 of the still young offspring are already internationally successful in the advanced level, above all Governor, Thiago and Toto Jr. The dam El. St. Sugar Plum Fairy produced the I c-Brillantring mare 2022, Shadow Fairy Caledonia, with Foundation on the occasion of the Oldenburg Elite Mare Show 2022 in Rastede, who won the bronze medal at the Bundeschampionat of three-year-old mares and geldings a little later. The dam’s sire, Sir Donnerhall I, is now one of the world’s top dressage sires after winning several titles in the course of his career (premium stallion, main premium winner, HLP winner, Bundeschampion, Vice World Champion) and was ranked third in the WBFSH World Ranking List in 2022. The granddam Donner Dancing is a daughter of the Oldenburg top sire Don Schufro, who wrote Danish dressage history with Andreas Helgstrand. In 2004 he was Danish Vice Champion; in 2008 he won team bronze in Beijing. Furthermore, he won several World Cup qualifiers. In addition, Don Schufro led the FN breeding value estimation for many years. The licensed stallion Force Majeure (by For Romance I) and the internationally successful dressage horses Any How/Anne van Olst (DEN) and Don Caledonia/Hannah Biggs (GBR) are closely related. The Thoroughbred dam line flows into the branch of Yonne xx from the large Thoroughbred family 4. Yonne xx herself became dam of the well-known Celle state stud stallion Jonkheer xx, as well as stallions such as the Trakehner Iffland, Il Divo xx (Ldb. Marbach u. Warendorf), Ildefonso xx (PB Hess.), Ilion xx (Ldb. Celle, PB Rhld.), Impulsivo xx (PB Hess.), Irish Stew xx (PB Rhld.), Jet Stream xx (PB Oldbg., DK, Ldb. Celle), Just Spectacular xx (PB Oldbg., Hann.) and Justinian xx (PB Oldbg., Bad.-Wttbg.) go back to this foundation mare.
