17hh 14yo Kind natured and affectionate pure bred Registered and Inspected chestnut Irish Draught Mare (RID/1281/0003), GREEN Passport born 2002. DNA typed and parentage tested. By KNOCKBOY HERO out of Shoska (Soft Cenre). Descended from the famous ERRIGAL sireline (Slyguff Hero is a full brother to the world famous sire of show jumpers King of Diamonds). Solid, old-fashioned type mare with short strong cannons, decent bone and big girth to the body.
Scanned in foal with heartbeat to Pioneerstud Silver Sheikh (14.2hh Cremello 75% Arabian www.pioneerstud.co.uk/9.html) due May 2017 for a guaranteed palomino foal that should be a stunning middleweight sportshorse type with a bit of flash! Took in foal at first attempt (chilled semen). She retired from riding due to old pedal bone injury (occasionally goes 1/10th lame on hard ground but is sound for 95% of the time), was previously ridden for 5 years in all riding club activities.
Currently lives quietly in a large or small herd, not a troublemaker, but has also lived on her own in the past. Winters out all year round and rarely needs rugged, but is equally settled being stabled. Good to load in the horsebox, with farrier and to catch. Very good doer in all seasons, low maintenance. Located in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. £2000
