Yound Foal

Baileys Horse Feeds North O' The Border Foal Show

Nov 15th at Devon Leisure Equestrian Center Fishcross, Alloa

Wagner VUWagner V.U. the six and a half month colt owned by Robert Donaldson from the Viewmount Stud, Peterhead came out top to be the Supreme Champion of the Sport Horse Section at the well-attended show organized by The Scottish Sports Horse Association and generously sponsored by Baileys Horse Feeds.

Mr. Jacob Werners from The KWPN Holland judged the sport horse and pony foals and commented later that he had seen some very nice youngsters.All the entrants had to come from Scotland and have been bred “North O’ The Border.”

Wagner V.U. is a striking bay colt with a lot of quality and supple swinging movement. He was turned out in tremendous condition and was feeling extremely well, perhaps a super advert for Baileys as Robert has just recently become a sales representative for the company so it was a very fitting win!

Colt FoalWagner V.U. is unbeaten in his career to date as earlier this year he traveled South to become the Champion Best British Show Jumping Bred Foal at Addington and he was also Champion The S.S.H. summer show before going on to stand top of the line at the S.S.H. Annual Foal Grading, quite a record for one so young!

Wagner’s dam Jolanday (Edison x Ariban) was imported from Holland as a young mare by Steve Ross who earlier ran the Birkland Stud in Aberdeenshire which proved so successful in producing quality sport horses to compete in all disciplines.

This was the third annual North O’The Border Foal Show and also the third consecutive year that Jolanday,(and Robert!) have produced the Champion Foal. The winners in 2001 and 2002 were full brother and sister and both by the Birkland Stud’s Jurius who also sired the winner of this year’s Foxhunter Championship at The Horse Of The Year Show .At present Jurius is competing successfully with young rider Sophie Heaven but sadly for British breeding he has been castrated.

Sandra Lynn Cordiner had every right to feel proud as not only was Wagner V.U. sired by Ludwig H (Goodtimes x Burgraaf) her well known and highly regarded SSH Approved and BSJA Silver Elite ShowJumping stallion,) but Winterswick the reserve Champion foal owned by Sandra Lynn was also by Ludwig H. Winterswick’s dam Milah-Eleen (Acord 11 x Mytens) has also bred a full brother to Winterswick , now a five year old and being produced in the South by Tracy Priest.

The Balcormo Stud’s Whyle, a grey son of Larino (Concorde xArmstrong) out of Frantique (Secundus x Marconi) came third in the colt class . The dam line of this colt has produced many jumpers and the Low- Mitchell Family have high hopes for this one !

Perhaps the only coloured Parko colt in the country — Jane Maxwell’s Papago finished in fourth place. He is a very big well-developed colt who had a good canter and jumped the little fence with plenty to spare.

Anique PaleasiThe winner of the class for filly foals Anique Paleasi belongs to Domenique and Andrew Bonelli- Baird and was out of their good show jumping mare Anique Shucassey (by Flagmount Diamond ) and sired by the up and coming Swedish International jumper Quite Easy (Quidam De Revel) . This well produced , deep bodied filly, did not score top marks for conformation but certainly made up for it with her wonderful movement and spectacular style over the little fence. Mr. Werners commented that in fact the second placed filly was perhaps the best model but the winner showed more sport potential. Second was Smartie, a very appropriately named bay filly by Accondy (Saddlers Wells x Kalamoun ) who was shown alongside her dam the part Tb x Welsh cob and belonging to Mrs Hazel England. This filly scored good marks for correct type and hind leg action in canter.

The Balcormo Stud’s Wild Thyme was placed third. She is by Sandra Lynn Cordiner’s young black stallion Pall Mall (Galoubet x Grannus) who is competed with so much success by Andrew Hamilton and out of a mare by Nethan Fiddler’s Green ,a leading Scottish show jumper a decade ago when ridden by Gail Gilmore. Mrs. Lesley Brodie’s attractive,well developed chestnut filly Thumbarhumba by Krisinsky out of Arabesque by Akkord collected fourth prize. She was beautifully presented but perhaps overawed by the occasion she was a little stilted in her walk and canter .

Rushenfauld HighlanderTen sport ponies were forward and Mr. Werners chose as his winner the diminutive Rushenfauld Highlander bred by Mrs Shaw and owned by Mrs. Diamond. This Welsh Sec. A pony has Tullibardine blood on both sides being by Tullabardine Turbo Charge and out of Tullibardine High Hopes. He received good marks for his trot, canter and overall impression, showing great intelligence when being asked to pop a minute fence. The judge remarked that he just loved his attitude! Rushenfauld Highlander later finished Reserve Champion of the pony section.

Rosedust March Mist a very pretty dun colt owned and bred by Mrs R. Duncan followed closely in second spot.By Eyarth Apollo and out of Lismar Victoria Falls he earned good marks for conformation and overall impression and was just a point or two less for trot and canter than the winner.

The Misses Rennie from the well known Lomondside Stud produced Lomondside Galaxy to take third position. This strongly made filly showed a good walk and wonderful canter and has all the makings of a true sports pony.

She is by the Lomondside Stud’s senior stallion Shantamar,the thoroughbred who has made a name for himself by siring both horses and ponies to excel in all disciplines and her dam Silverlea Golden Shred was in her day was a top class performance pony.


Transy BraceletMrs.C Frith from Argyllshire judged the Native Breed foals and had as her winner of the class for large breeds The Transy Stud’s Connemara filly Transy Bracelet who went on to take the Pony Championship. This filly showed a nice trot, good canter and she jumped nicely and gained good marks for overall impression. She is by Lockinge Frederick and out of Bardsey Bangle. Winner of the section for smaller breeds was the beautifully presented Rosedust March Mist already placed second in the Sport Pony class and again he showed himself well and will be one to watch for in the future.
