Cleopatra vom Niehaus, born on 21 May 2009, is a bay leopard pure-bred Knabstruppper imported from Germany in 2010. She is a beautiful mare with excellent conformation and movement. She was awarded “Best in Show Knabstrupper – North Germany” and was premium awarded as a foal with the ZfDP. Cleopatra gave birth to a colt (London Lane’s Houdini) on 27 January 2013. Houdini’s sire is Heliodoros vom Niehaus and Houdini is a gorgeous few spot pure bred Knabstrupper. Once Houdini has been weaned, Cleopatra will come up to the Stud to be backed and to start her competitive career.

Breeding and Pedigree

Cleopatra is bred in the purple with her sire Tudor af Lille Hav being of very high quality. He was a premium foal and is fully graded as a stallion with the ZfDP. All his offspring have also been premium awarded. His sire, Thunderman, is a premium stallion and a grading winner in Germany. On his mother’s side we find very successful and proven breeding mares. Thunderman’s sire, Thunder King of Mountain, a black leopard Knabstrupper, is approved in the Stallion Book I of the ZfDP.

Cindy Lynghof, Cleopatra’s dam, is by the famous Apollon, the only approved Knabstrupper for Warmblood breeding, having received an exceptional licence by the ZfDP. Some of Apollon’s achievements include winning his stallion testing at Vilhelmsborg in 1989; being awarded the Gold Medal as best Knabstrupper stallion at the 1990 Danish Agriculture Fair and achieving a Premium graded status at the ZfDP grading in Lentfohrden. He had a successful competitive career, having reached M Level in Dressage, Jumping and Eventing. Apollon sired twelve graded stallions and several State Premium daughters. He was awarded ZfDP’s Exceptional Licence Approval for Warmblood breeding due to his outstanding record as a sire and competitor. Apollon’s sire Zorro, was a modern Sporthorse type and is a descendant of the famous Arab stallion Pomeranets OX. Apollon’s dam Symfoni is an exceptionally well bred Trakehner mare by Donauschimmer, combining illustrious lines such as Abglanz and Poet xx. A couple of generations back we find the highly rated Gunnar and the great grandmother Sonett, who produced the famous Trakehner, Hessenstein, and influenced an entire generation of horses.
