Our French mare ‘Darling de lys’, who is out of the full sister to ‘Rahtop De Toscane’ and is by the same sire as individual gold medallist horse ‘Big Star’, ridden by Nick Skelton, landed in Australia early February. She is currently in foal to ‘Diamant De Semilly’, who competed at the 2002 World Equestrian Games in Jerez. One of his most popular offspring is ‘Quickly de Kreisker’ who competed at the 2014 World Equestrian Games, and is now a favoured breeding stallion. An article acknowledging ‘Diamant De Semilly’s’ offspring can be found here. He is currently the number one show jumping sire in the world. The foal is due in July.
The beginning of 2017 has seen the sale of several Bellhaven horses. Our Grand Prix mare Bellhaven Clover (Bellhaven Saphire × Bellhaven Secret) has sold overseas. Our French Warmblood gelding Bellhaven J’Taime (Join Hands × Danaos Du Theillet) sold to an event rider in Queensland. The full brother to our Grand Prix gelding Bellhaven Sanskrit, Bellhaven Chicago sold to a NSW show jumper. And finally, one of our young Kannan colts, Bellhaven Bondi (Bellhaven Africa × Kannan), sold early February. If you are looking to buy your next horse, please feel free to contact Deb for more information.
And what a way to start!
A beautiful Toulon Colt, out of our Plot Blue mare was born this month. He is exciting to us as a Stud, as these bloodlines will work well with our breeding program. He is very similar to his Sire Toulon, who is much talked about around the world as a serious sire. With many of his sons being licenced & competing Internationally at top level around the World. He may be by Toulon, but he has the markings or Plot Blue, the Dam Sire…as you can see in this photo! Please click on the photo to see his pedigree.
