The boys have finally gone out for the summer….

Declan has started to behave a lot better now that he’s allowed us to handle him more, and he’s a star at leading now. Steve’s demonstrating how to lead and Declan is being really well behaved, very please with his behaviour today he was really good, when being taken to his new field.

Well we’ve finally turned the boys out for the summer. From the left the uncle 2 year old Why At with his nephews, brothers 2 year old Declan and then 3 year old Chance.

Torpenhow Solo

OK so spend a week away only to return to find Solo is still running around, convinced now he’s an eventer in the making, hes so bold and quite fast running around, just wait until I add the yearlings to the field in the next few weeks. It’ll be interesting to see what he makes of them.

The grey around his eyes makes his eyes really stand out. Pity he’s going to be grey as he’s a very handsome bay at the moment.

He’ll be looking for a new home in 5 months. Any interest welcome……

Destiny (Tina) to her friends now 3 years old looks like she should make 16.2hh by Daddy Cool, out of a Fürstenreich mare (Torpenhow Dyna Mo). Tina is just about ready to start competing after the weather improves I expect she’ll go out.

Declan achieved a premium at his grading and the poor sole was also awarded a brand (designer label) to go with it. He’s now all set for his weaning this weekend.





New Foal – by Furst Romancier

Furst Romancier Foal

We had a new arrival on 2nd June, to our Don Primero mare Torpenhow Daydream.  She is the very proud mum of a Bay colt. He seems to have the slight dish in his face that his father has.  He has lovely long limbs so we expect him to be just like his sire. He is very alert and lively seen here at 2 days old.

Torpenhow Daydream 16hh, In foal Chesnut Mare 5 year old

Torpenhow DaydreamLightly backed and put in foal, as no rider. Very successfully dam line. Half sister to Emma Shaws It’ll be me.

In foal (due May/June 2010) to Furst Romancier Who at the 70 day test ( Oldenburg ) received in all three basic gaits the top mark of 9.0 – walk, trot and canter! His rideability was highly praised – expressed in numbers this means he was awarded a 9.0 and 9.5 out of 10

Furst Romancier stood out from the crowd with his movements swinging through his entire body, developing the highest degree of impulsion and elasticity. A dressage stallion in a class of his own! Sire Furst Heinrich was himself crowned World Champion as a five year old in 2003. With an above average breeding index of 160 points he is ranked as one of the leading dressage sires in the German Federation’s breeding evaluation. The dam’s sire Romancier adds – as the half brother to Rubinstein – the precious Rosenkavalier into the equation. Furst Romancier descends from one of the most successfulOldenburg mare lines: the Edoste. Numerous licensed stallions emerged from this line such as the National Champion and European championship participant Exupery as well as reserve national champion Landjuwel Gold, the Olympic horse Petit Prince, Grand Prix winner Avignon in addition to numerous advanced dressage horses. Conclusion: A stallion gifted with all it needs to become a top-class producer.

Make an excellent foundation mare for any stud, or could be produced herself for any discipline.

Her dam has produced very successful dressage horses, show jumpers and an eventer.

Open to sensible offers.
