Sire: In a jumper stallionís lineage it is not unusual to find stallions that were jumpers and that sired jumpers, but it is extraordinary to find both stallions and mares that performed on the international stage and consistently produced international jumpers. JETHRO TULLís pedigree includes DIAMANT DE SEMILLY (international jumper and sire of numerous jumpers) as well as WALNUT DE MUZE (international jumper, dam of international jumpers and related to numerous jumpers through her dam, including Eric Lamazeís mount, DERLY CHIN DE MUZE). On Jethro Tullís dam side, we find such stars in the jumping arena and the breeding shed as VOLTAIRE, HEARTBREAKER, RAMIRO, and LE MEXICO.
Dam: ZANTINA UE is by LAROCHE, a CONCORDE (by VOLTAIRE) son out of a NIMMERDOR mare. The VOLTAIRE/NIMMERDOR cross has been very successful, producing such notables as KANNAN (international jumper and leading sires of jumpers). Her strength of pedigree continues with DAMIRO B (RAMIRO/ALME), an international jumper and sire of international jumpers, as well as an Irish Thoroughbred mare that not only has produced an eventer in Alberta, but traces to such stalwarts as AUCTION RING xx (ancestor to international eventers). Her pedigree mirrors the late great stallion PRESLEY BOY (CONCORDE/DAMIRO)
Notes: ULTERRA ZIVON packs a powerful pedigree for superior talent over fences, primarily show jumping. If you are looking for a potential star, here he is. www.ulterraranches.com
