McJonnas the UK's most popular cremello warmblood stallion.
A beautiful and rare Cremello Warmblood Stallion of Czech
His cremello colouring is the outcome of his double dilute
genes. The Cremello colouring has for many years been misunderstood
and it is only in recent years that the general public have
now gained greater insight into the wonderful genetic makeup
of these spectacular "blue eyed creams".
Cremello stallions guarantee 100% palomino foals when bred
to chestnut mares, however McJonnas can also produce palomino,
smokey black or buckskin foals from bay/black mares. McJonnas
is Homozygous Creme (CrCr) and Heterozygous Agouti Aa.
Set aside from this remarkable attribute McJonnas is an athletic
horse with good jumping ability from a lineage of performance
sport horses with a pedigree steeped in history including
the greatest foundation lines of the Trakehner coupled with
the thoroughbred and the famous Golden Kinsky horses.
McJonnas successfully passed his stallion inspection and
was Licensed with the Scottish Sports Horse in March 2008
with good conformation, walk and canter.
He has been extensively used across the UK proving to be
a popular choice with mare owners with now over seventy foals
registered resulting from his first few seasons at stud. A
consistent sire of premium and prize winning foals and is
now proving as popular a choice in the Netherlands as he is
in the UK. McJonnas's oldest progeny are now starting under
saddle and showing great promise.
McJonnas commenced under saddle in the dressage arena in
spring of 2008 and on his first three unaffiliated outings
he was placed respectively third, second and first in his
prelim. and novice tests scoring consistently over 70% prior
to commencing at affiliated level. McJonnas qualified for
the Scottish Regional Finals at his second affiliated show
at Dabbs Equestrian Centre in the Novice section.

His progeny are exceptionally calm and affectionate with
strong top lines, well defined limbs and beautiful faces with
the additional bonus of guaranteed "colourful" robes
of gold, ranging from caramel and mink shades of buckskins
with black manes and tails, chocolate and amber shaded smokey
blacks and palomino's ranging from all shades of gold. The
diversity of colours are always fascinating to observe as
they change, which adds a little more excitement and interest
as we ponder how they will turn out. He has crossed well with
thoroughbreds, natives, Irish Sport Horses and warmblood mares.
His progeny are eligible for Breed Society Passport registration
with the Scottish Sports Horse in the foundation Studbook
with all first premium foals eligible for entry into the Head
Stud Book at the age of three or over providing the mare has
a three generation pedigree. McJonnas is also registered with
the KWPN and, depending on the mares registration details,
his progeny are eligible for KWPN Reg B & NRPS Reg A.
Registration is available with most other recognised WBFSH
& EU approved stud books. Contact your stud book of choice
for more details.
His sire, Mineral is a rare Kinsky Stallion, standing at
stud in the Czech Republic and has sired a great number of
sport horses, broodmares and stallions. His progeny have been
sold around the world and proves a popular choice with breeders
in his homeland. Mineral is described as being a stallion
with very good exterior, impressive looks, of dark golden
palomino colour, with good movement and easy to ride. In his
100 day performance test he had the best mark for ridability
and was approved in 1999. Progeny of Mineral are described
as being "sufficiently powerful, of good type and easy
to ride". His best progeny are "Centra", "Galan",
"Iluse" and "Minor" in show jumping, Fanfan
and Melante in dressage.
The Paternal Grand Sire
"Mys xx" (Flying Star x Astyanax)
The TB sire Mys x has been recorded as being the best sprinter
in the Czech Republic for three consecutive years (1984 -1986)
His sire "Flying Star" (Worden) was second in the
Czech Derby and sire of numerous jumpers. "My Flying"
a full brother to Mys show jumped to S level (International)
Myjaxa the dam of "Mys" was a descendant of many
great steeple chasers including "Mocná" and
"Mighty Mor" winners of the Pardubice steeplechase
Myjava (Marin Lipsky x Furioso XV-55) 1977
"Myjava" Mineral's dam was an elite mare, having
produced 13 progeny, a number of which have competed with
success in both show jumping and dressage. She was the daughter
of one of the best palomino stallions in the Czech republic
"Marin Lipský". Myjava also produced two other
stallions asides Mineral, his full brother "Mistral"
and "My Boy" used for breeding in Germany (also
known as "Oklan"). My Boy was a son
of the Russian Trakehner stallion "Obvod" "Myjava's"
daughter the buckskin mare Mija by "Amon" competed
up to Grand Prix in show jumping.
The bloodlines of "Marin Lipský" appears
in many pedigrees of successful sport horses sporting the
golden robes of palomino and buckskin horses throughout the
world. Marin Lipský was the result of the line breeding
of yet another famous racing palomino "Cesar" who was a successful racehorse in 1856 and who's lines
trace back to what is believed to be the founder of the ancient
Bohemian Golden riding Horses developed by Count Octavian
Kinsky, founder of the Equus Kinsky stud book.
The maternal damline introduces yet more of the famous Kinsky
bloodlines, this time through the grand dam "Alena"
by the famous palomino show jumper "Almhirt Týnský"
by Almhirt. Almhirt Týnský, competed in Germany
under the name "Controversy" and was successful
at M level (1.40 m) He was one of the most popular sires in
recent Kinsky breeding. Standing 1.69m in height, Almhirt
Týnský was renown for passing on his willingness
to work and kind temperament. It is perhaps the height of
Mineral and Almirt combined that seems to prevail to McJonnas's
youngstock as he consistently adds height to his foals despite
measuring only 1.64 himself.
Nugeta her Paternal lines
Quonium & Guido (Trakehner)
McJonnas's dam "Nugeta" reveals a pedigree steeped
in the influential bloodlines and history of the Russian Trakehner.
Her sire "Quonium Zapusky" traces back to several
of the greatest foundation Trakehner sires of today through
the bloodlines of "Quonium" (ex Gavor) by Guido. From Guido's sire line stemmed the famous horses
Marduc, Anduc, Hyllos, Solero TSF and Creon who eventually
led to Komet and thus Doruto, the most influential Trakehner
dressage sire of the KWPN today.
Pythagaros (Dampfross x Tempelhüter) 1927 Trakehner
Guido's sire Pythagaros was awarded "Elite" status
by the Trakehner Verband. The dark bay stallion combined the
blood of the two of the greatest Trakehner sires of the century
"Dampfross out of "Pechmarie" by "Tempelhüter"
and proved to be the leading sire prior to WWII between 1933-1944
siring over 40 stallion sons during his reign. His son Totilas
and daughter Tapete were instrumental in revitalizing the
breed after the war. Pythagaros's influence even today is
still strong through his sons: Guido, Creon and Eife,. Gunnar,
Herzbube, EH Leonardo and EH Argument. Argument and Eifel
became foundation stallions in Russia producing the stallion
sons,"Waitaki" and "Abrek"
Pythagoros' Daughters; Hansastadt, Isola Madre and Alraune
were of importance for establishing strong dam lines, and
in addition to the fore mentioned stallions, his sons; "Keith",
"Markwart", "Sporn" "Suomar"
and Pilgrim made sure the lines continued.
Dampfross (Dingo x Passavan) Trakehner 1916
Dampfross, Pythagaros's' sire came from the private stud
farm of Lauszus in Stepponaten, county, Ragnit, in East Prussia.
Born in 1913 and acquired by Trakehner as a chief sire in
1923. He remained active until 1933. His sire "Dingo"
out of "Laura" by "Passvan" was a son
of the legendary "Flügel" a stallion that very
much stamped his type into the Trakehner breed, something
that is often referred to today as "Flügel-type"
Dampfross was very much the prototype of the warmblood horse,
well-tempered, with an impeccable mind, outstanding powerful
movement, excellent health and high general athleticism. Experts
agree that even today he would stand at the top of any warmblood
breed. Dampfross sired 38 approved sons and no less than 35
of his daughters were recruited for the famous Trakehner mare
herds. His most influential son for the Trakehner breed was
by far Pythagoras, in Hanover, it was Semper Idem who redefined
the meaning of "athletic show jumper", even to this
day, his descendant Stakkato stands at stud in Celle in 2006.
Tempelhüter (Perfectionist x Jennesie) Trakehner 1905
Pythagaros's dams sire Tempelhüter was chief sire in
Trakehner (1916-1931) and was considered as the perfect example
of the Trakehner horse. As illustration of his unrivaled significance,
a statue of this magnificent stallion was erected in front
of the Castle at Trakehnen where it remained until it was
taken to Russia after World War II and was placed in front
of the Russian Horse Museum in Moscow. During a somewhat emotional
and tearful ceremony an exact replica of the statue was made
in the early 1970s by Hans-Joachim Köhler and revealed
to the public in front of the Horse Museum in Verden, Germany.
The Maternal damline Furioso XVIII (Furioso XVII x Przedswit
Retuning to Quoniam Zapusky's dam Hilda was a daughter of
Furioso Sedlec. This sire line stems back to Furioso XVIII
- K awarded "Supreme Elite" and remained an influential
sire in the Czech Republic standing at the National Stud farm
Kladruby. Kladruby stud was founded in 1579 by the Emperor
of Rome and the Czech King Rudolf II.
The Furioso sire line eventually leads us back to the foundation
Thoroughbred sires of Sir Peter Teazle, High Flyer, and as
far as records go to the famous Black Arabian Stallion Byerly
Turk and Godolphin.
