OUR BLACK STALLIONS

 

SAPPHIRE VASHEER

Stallion no:  AM1023/S12

Sapphire Venture ex Clivocast Gypsy
Bred by Pam Smith
Black 38, born 9 May 2001

Passed VVE Feb 2012
Vash is a very chunky boy with tremendous bone, terrific quarters and a beautiful, short head with a large eye.  We have used him with great success on Cracker and Jack's daughters to retain their quality but increase the substance.

Black 38.5, born 1982
Stallion no: 3482


Cracker left us on Saturday 14th July 2007 and headed for the great mountain & moorland in the sky.

He spent his last seven years on loan with Mandy Jones and the girls in Nottinghamshire.  Thank you,  Mandy, for looking after him so well and for giving him the most wonderful retirement that a handsome boy could wish for.
A truly black black, he gave us Coppice Dandy Jack, together with several quality, well boned mares with good bodies and feisty temperaments. And there was life in the old boy even at 23 - in 2005 Mandy was delighted with a surprise October filly foal!

Why do ponies have to get old? Sior was a magnificent stallion in his day and gave us some wonderful, big mares with lovely temperaments and geldings with quality and exceptional movement.  We have several great grandchildren.  He was retired and gelded in 2009 and had several  years living the quiet life, occasionally with company but mostly preferring to be out in a small paddock on his own, tucking into the grass and dozing in the sun.

Sior looked terrific for a long time but the last few winters took their toll as his poor old teeth gave up and, despite several hard feeds a day, rugs and stables, he was starting to diminish.  After many months of agonising we finally decided to say goodbye to this grand old man, whose legacy is almost immeasurable.  We do miss him.
