TawnyDun Milo
Born:  16th May 2015
Dam: TawnyDun Aine
Sire:   Tito Gofirst (TB)
BCPS Reg no. CR02726
 An elegant youngster by Tito Gofirst giving him both the speed from the thoroughbred and the toughness, stamina and jumping from the connemara pony, through the sought after ‘Sparrow’ bloodlines on his dam’s side.  
Dark buckskin in colour, with lovely straight paces, classy looks with a super bold temperament.   If you are looking for a competition horse in a smaller frame and around 15.1hh, then he is what you want!

He is growing well and extremely bold!     Very happy with people around him and he loves attention. As a foal he would come over to see you whether his dam comes or not, showing he is not afraid of anything and quite fearless - just think what that attitude could achieve on a tough event course in the future!  

His paces are excellent with good bone, strong limbs and lovely conformation.  An attractive colt all round, and one that will give lots of pleasure in the future if he continues to grow in both body and mind as he has done as a foal.


His sire carries some of the best racing bloodlines for speed - Secretariat and Mr Prospector through the American stallion Gone West.  

Milo is showing his speed now, overtaking his dam and you can see there is more to come.   He will cover the ground and be fast over jumps - ideal for eventing!

TawnyDun Thady

Born:  17th May 2012
Dam: Carraig Cailin
Sire:   Grianagh Petrus
BCPS Reg no. FC 03385

A pure-bred connemara from the best old Irish bloodlines, and the last foal by Grianagh Petrus.  On his sire’s side he has the old respected pedigree through Ormond Oliver, as well as the Sparrow jumping bloodlines.  His granddam is Castle Cailin Ard who has won everything of note in Ireland and whose dam produced Castle Comet (Champion @ HOYS, Olympia & Dublin).
Thady is the same stamp as his full siblings, is very athletic in his movement, with super straight paces and uphill lift and great carriage.  He has a lovely temperament - inquisitive and gentle - with absolutely wonderful conformation, including a typical connemara pony ‘apple shaped’ bottom!    He has a smashing nature, and a a bright, sunny attitude to life!
Will make a full up14.2hh.

on Ashfield Mactalla sire of Trewithian Bracken - member of Silver Medal British Event Team 2009.
Thady is a rare dun (buckskin) colour, carrying no grey gene so he will not grey out at an early age.  His very distinctive half blue eye which, with his cheeky nature will make him hard to forget!
He will make a brilliant pony/riding club competition pony - lots of energy with a wonderful jump and great paces for flatwork.   He will be quite able to go eventing too, as he is balanced and sensible.   He will have lots to give a young rider - or a small adult - in the future.

He is now backed and being lightly ridden as he is very strong and chunky, then he will be ready to go on to be educated either during the summer of 2016.   He is a lovely youngster with oodles of character, and loves being with people!
TawnyDun Ailbe (Albie)
click here to see full pedigree
He has all the athleticism and capability to go to the top in any jumping sphere.   His breeding gives him the ability, his paces give him the scope and his temperament gives him the advantage.

With lovely fluid paces - rangy but well proportioned carrying lots of bone - he has incredible power and tremendous scope when he moves. Fantastic laid-back temperament and genuinely kind nature.

Ailbe had the look of a small thoroughbred as a youngster, but has developed nicely with  powerful rounded quarters, great depth of chest and good bone.   I have been told that Westside Mirah had that same look too, so perhaps Ailbe’s genes are running true to type!
With showjumper/producer Sam Ward to bring on his jumping abilities

TawnyDun Orla

Born:  10th May 2016
Dam: October Gold
Sire:   Tito Gofirst (TB)
BCPS Reg no. CR 02761


Wonderful Irish jumping bloodlines and TB speed & endurance combine together to make an exceptionally exciting event prospect.   She has a charming nature, is bold & willing to do whatever is asked of her.  Excellent conformation and straight movement with lovely fluid athletic paces - just like her full siblings Rafferty & Aisling. She should make around 15.1 - 15.2hh.

You can see from the pictures and videos that she has absolutely wonderful paces and is very elegant and purposeful in what she does, even at this age.   A very sweet filly with great things ahead of her.  She was only five days old in the lower video and showing considerable speed, with a couple of dainty bucks and elegant small rear!  Learning her balance, dressage, jumping and speed ready for an eventing career this early.
She also shows briefly her elevated trot - quite special.  She is growing into a big strong filly, who will no doubt do very well in the future.
