 Team Joyce Blog - Oaks Volta.

Oaks Volta.


By Team Joyce


Spring time at Lals Haven Stud brings many newborn foals, plus the time to inseminate and hopefully create new babies for the next year. Oaks Volta is expecting quite a few newbies so when they all start to drop, photo spamming will occur on the Lals Haven Instagram, Facebook and web pages. 


Wesley has really enjoyed breaking and training the first crop born in 2015. Of course they are far too young to take out, but get plenty of handling here at home.


Team Joyce are busting to get Volta on the truck and trek around the country exposing our prized stallion to as many showjumping shows possible. He is ready and needs the miles, making sure he becomes accustomed to all the zing on jumping courses out and about. We have been very busy constructing our own portable stables, two very sturdy light framed sections hoping we can quickly and easily erect at the events. Of course our long term goal is to have our two top quality performance stallions Cera Ducati and Oaks Volta nicely secured in comfortable spaces feeling safe and relaxed. 


We have moved these two fellas next to each other here at home so they become best buddies. By the time Cera Ducati is performing they should know the drill. Wes has high hopes for both of them; the long wait should finally come to fruition. We shall work on inseminating our Lals Haven broodmares during the months of September and October. We will even try Cera Ducati to see if he takes to the test. There are two mares busting to have a baby with his name tag.


Many say the mare matters when it comes to breeding a future champion. By this we mean the dam of the stallion - is the mother a well performed horse or does she possess quality lines that have produced performances? Many stallions have amazing sires, but how many have the ultimate sires and dams. Team Joyce are proud to announce our two stallions both ooze quality blood and performances in every line! That is why Wes chose them.

Here is a quick glance; proof is in the pudding, let us put it in writing...


Oaks Volta (home name - Volta)


With the breeding season fast approaching, many people will be searching for a WELL PERFORMED, PROVEN and WORTHY sire. Volta ticks all those boxes. Our Oaks Volta 2017 special half price offer must be booked and paid for August or September. Service can be used anytime during the 2017 season.

Sire – Vivant de Heffnick 


This performance stallion has surpassed many other colts producing progeny jumping in the top level here in Australia. He won the 2009 Australian World Cup League, which resulted in the opportunity to travel overseas to compete in the World Cup Final in Geneva 2010. Here, he placed 7th individually and then on the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky 2010 where he placed 21st individually and 7th as a team. Just an absolute champion...


He has far too many results to list - yes he was in the London Olympics as well! That is Volta’s father’s career: outstanding to say the least.


Dam – Altes van Beekveld


Wes and I often watched this dam, Altes van Beekveld, compete in many Grand Prix and World Cup classes here in Australia where she was never unplaced. Her sire, Darco, claimed the title "World's best showjumping stallion". In all, Darco sired more than 3,000 foals. Darco was the #1 sire of showjumpers for five consecutive years (WBFSH), and he is the #1 sire of having the most offspring competing at GP level.


…her lines Darco, Voltaire, Jalisco B – the perfect mix of flamboyance and steadiness. Volta’s mother is a dam to skite about, no wonder he is Grand Prix at aged 6 years...with parents outlined above, surely he will one day be a champion to!

Cera Ducati (home name - Handsome)


There is NOT a weak line in this fella!


Sire – Diamant de Semmily 


Certified ELITE for showjumping, BEST STALLION IN THE WORLD (WBFSH sires rankings 2015 and 2016). He has already produced over 140 international showjumpers (1.60m) and is sire of the well-known stallions Diarado, Quickly de Kreisker and Emerald. Diamant de Semilly himself competed successfully at the 1.60m level, and he was World Champion in the French team at the WEG in 2002!


Dam – Beate (imported in utero Cear Ducati)


Here is a mare that is certainly bred to jump!  


Beate’s sire, Askari, competed international 1.60m and is an amazing competitor. Beate's  mother is a full sister to Clinton I, Clinton II and Hirtin, the mother of Levisto Z.  Beates's oldest siblings are already competitive at 1.60m level and she completed her mare testing in Europe, gaining 9s for her character and trainability as well as for her freejumping ability.


This highly competitive showjumping dam line has also produced the international showjumpers and /or approved stallions Padua, Sonora La Silla, Poor Boy, Clintus, Daesy, Cliostro, Cantulua, and Zandor Z.
