Fox Lair purchased Cocoa early 2010, with her colt, Grafton, at her side. She is one of our foundation broodmares and a favorite of the owner's. She has given us three fantastic foals over the years. The first was Grafton (Joey), a colt by Graf Top II. The second, in 2012, was a gorgeous filly by Coconut Grove named Crazy For Calypso (CiCi). The final colt, born in 2015, by Lagoheidor was Lady's Man (Romeo).

Cor de la Bryere:
Cor de la Bryère (1968-2000), nicknamed "Corde", is one of the most influential sires in modern warmblood breeding, the stallion that revolutionised jumping horse breeding. He is known as the "Reserve Stallion of the Century", second only to Landgraf I. His name astute breeders like to see, especially on the mare line for 'Cord' tends to give great form over a jump. He stood 16.2½ hh (169 cm). Described by breeders as a 'gift from heaven,' Cor de la Bryere has been especially successful producing jumping horses, as he passes on his incredible bascule, scope, and jumping technique. Cor de la Bryere also passed on his willingness and trainability. Romedio Graf von Thun-Hohenstein described the stallion: 'The arching back, like a taut band of steel combined with the super elastic end gives limitless, but always expedient, springing capability to the natural dynamics of each effort. Add to that ease of riding, marvelous disposition, and a floating, highly balanced canter. These qualities are absolutely to the benefit of young horses, who will no longer have to pay with premature breakdowns caused by jumping and showing solely with a raw, crude jumping talent.'
Pik König is considered the most important son of the famous Thoroughbred sire of showjumpers, Pik As xx. Pik König sired 19 Approved sons and 22 State Premium mares. His offspring - such as Pirol 37 - were mainly successful in showjumping. With a dressage index of 126, and a jumping index of 131, Pik König had an overall rating of 129. His sire, Pik As xx stood at the State Stud Celle from 1953-69, where he sired four approved sons. With top class progeny such as Pesgö under Helga Köhler and Porta Westfalica ridden by Hartwig Steenken, he soon earned a good reputation as a showjumping horse producer. He hardly produced any dressage horses. State stud Celle had kept three sons from the last seasons in his career: the dark brown Pik König, the chestnut, Pik Junge and the grey Pikör... Pik König... developed into a top-class showjumping horse producer. His sons Pik Bube I and II even produced many dressage horses."
