Thorne Parks Little Darling AI
(Rotherwood Peter Pan UK x Glyndebourne Morticia)
No words can describe how the stud is coming to terms with the loss of our beautiful and precious girl, Katie. Taken far too soon from us on the 20th December 2009 from a paddock accident, that with all the effort in the world, we could not have saved her from. Katie was more than special. She was the the culmination of years of research and breeding to produce the ultimate RP for out stud. We never had any intention of ever parting with this beautiful pony, her place was set in stone. This two year old filly was so close to realizing her full potential. Just six months of breaking in and then I am sure a highly decorated ridden career. 2009 seems to be a very low year for the stud and 2010 MUST get better, because the loss of this beautiful pony has certainly tested our faith and resilience in this sport and hobby.
RIP Katie – never to be given the chance to shine. Why is it always the best taken too soon.
A Champion Remembered
Thorne Parks Keepsake
sadly deceased 23/10/07
(Kinlieth Pendragon x Balmoral Wintersong)
The stud had been highly fortunate to be able to obtain Becky back into our stud as our small broodmare. Becky is a 12.2 3/4hh Bay FS1 Welsh B and Riding Pony Mare. Her breeding is the foundation of the stud and we couldn’t be luckier to have met Karen and Kyra Johnston who have owned Becky for the last couple of years and have had huge success with her. Becky was sold as yearling by the stud; little did we know this cross would become impossible to do again due to Pendragons infertility. Becky has just produced a magnificent colt by Rhoson Gaugin (imp) for Karen. Becky has a positive preg test to Fairlight Acres Riverdance (palomino Riding Pony) and will due early January. Fingers crossed for a Palomino or Buckskin Filly. Sadly we lost Becky to a rare medical condition on the 23rd October 2007. She was 8 months in foal.
Some of Becky’s major wins include:
* Junior Champion – Perth Royal show as a yearling
* Bates Newcomer Large Pony of the Year
* 2nd Welsh B Mare – Perth Royal 2003 (13 in class)
* 2nd Welsh B Mare – Perth Royal 2004 (11 in class)
* Performance Welsh B Mare of Australia 2004
* Champion Welsh B Mare – 2006 Perth Royal Show
* Supreme Welsh B – 2006 Perth Royal Show
* Supreme Overall Welsh Exhibit – 2006 Perth Royal Show
* Drumclyer Award Winner – Supreme Overall Pony Breeds – 2006 Perth Royal Show
Sadly deceased 19th August 2009 – RIP Stella
(General Monash x Regal Style (SOD: Stir Tristram)
Stella is a stunning bright red bay five year old thoroughbred mare standing at just 15.1hh. She has four perfect white socks and a wide blaze. She is also a wonderful mover and has the most adorable temperament. After a rather uneventful racing career, she was retired and put on the market. She will be ridden this season and then she will go to stud for a 2008 foal. We can’t express how lucky we feel to have got this mare as she truly is the most divine natured horse we have ever owned. It’s hard to believe she is a thoroughbred at all!! Stella foaled a lovely buckskin colt on the 15th of September. Sadly we lost Stella in August. Her injuries sustained during birth were just too great to repair despite our bets efforts. She will be sadly missed and totally irreplaceable.
