Stallions & Colts in Masterton, Wairarapa
16.1hh bay Holstein cross Irish Hunter stallion.
By Littorio, a prolific sire of jumping and dressage horses (http://www.goldengrovestudfarm.com)
Out of Flash - an extremely high quality Holstein cross Irish mare by Corlando (http://www.goldengrovestudfarm.com).
Flash was rated highly as a youngster by the Holstein Society, but then sustained an injury as a yearling, preventing a competitive career for herself. She was out of a Laughton's Legend mare, by a thoroughbred stallion, so brings brains, beauty and athleticism to the mix.
This young stallion has a spectacular temperament and gorgeous off-the-floor paces. He can be pulled in out of the field with a minimum of fuss and indeed loves the attention.
He has powerful cadenced paces, with an extraordinary forearm, allowing him to reach both on the flat and over fences. He snaps up quickly infront, and is very careful behind whilst free-jumping.
We believe that this young stallion will really impact on any mare brought to him. He seems to really stamp he offspring with power, athleticism and temperament, plus of course, his bay colour and flashy white markings! His first crop have brought power, movement and sensibility to thoroughbred types but also some spectacular European style cadence to the warmblood/crossbred types. The main apsect commented on are their temperaments though - we can't wait for them to be old enough to jump!
Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in using him. He is available to limited mares only.
Trained for AI and natural service. Please contact us for rates and more details.
We have our secret weapon waiting in the wings! It has come to our attention that the rise of the warmblood over the last few years has meant that there is a real lack of thoroughbred stallions available. We found sourcing a reasonably sized sport style TB stallion to use over our WB and Irish mares really difficult - so you can imagine our joy when the Drums of Time (Black Drum, multi time 4* eventer, Boondoggle, Mystery Creek, plus many other jumpers) mare that we bought in foal to Westminster ( Zara Phillip's Glenbuck, Bates Our Questionnaire, many other great jumpers) had a stunning black colt foal!
He has grown into a lovely sort with huge flowing paces and a beautiful temperament.
He is now 3 years old and will be having his first mating season this year. He will be standing to the public next year but may be open for select mares - please contact us if you may have a something in mind!
