Pedigree profile of Dageraad Fergus (KWPN)
Oscar x Flemmingh
Fergus was imported in utero by the Dutch Warmblood Stud in South Africa at the time. Fergus has been prelicensed by the SAWHS and is eligible for breeding although we have not used him yet.
Fergus is by the stallion Oscar, probably best known for being the sire of the top dressage stallion "Uphill". Oscar himself competed successfully at Grand prix level and in his earlier years he was competed by Edward Gal. Oscar was approved by the KWPN and was described as a stallion with plenty of size and scope with three outstanding paces. He also had an extremely workable character which he passed onto his progeny. He produced foals that were well developed, well muscled and true to the dressage type.
On the damside Fergus has the stallion Flemmingh, who possesses all the great Holstein jumping lines in his pedigree, but ended up founding a dressage line. His damline combines the blood of French import "Cor de la Bryere" with the Holstein stalwart farnese, with a double dose of thoroughbred on his grand-dam's line.
Flemmingh placed third in his performance test in 1990. He is described as having exceptional movement, an active ground covering walk, a rich trot and a good canter. He had a very good work ethic, which he passed onto his progeny, combined with size and spectacular movement. Flemmingh also sired the dressage phenomenon Lingh as well as Krack C.
Fergus is being produced under saddle and shows great willingness to work. His canter is most probably his best pace.
