Hilary and Sandy of the Chameral Stud have sent me pictures of the recent birth of a colt foal out of Mannog Cracklin Rosie (Mannog Moonshadow x GB Elizabeth)  by their stallion Chameral Cortez Murphy.  Apparently a big upstanding few spot who will hopefully be used as a stud stallion.  Not only will he throw colour but he has some brilliant Appaloosa breeding - in fact quite International.  Such lovely news to hear as Rosie lost her foal in 2017.

His bloodlines include the Peyres stud of France, Capitall stud of Cumbria, Tibertich stud of Scotland and Mannog Stud of Wales.  He has some of the best British (Capitall Hefin) and American (Bright Eyes Brother etc) bloodlines you could ask for and also includes Bar D'Or (Tibertich Stud).  Let us hope there is someone out there who realises his stud potential.

Rosie also has one of her earlier babies (2013) being available for sale. A 5 yr old gelding part bred by the Chameral owned stallion Papa Joe.


2018 first show first win for Rio

After the horrible long wet, cold, snowy winter and cancelled early shows that we have all seemed to have experienced it was nice to at last have good weather and a well attended Wirral show on Sunday.  Took Rio (Mannog Zips Rio Grande  FPD 93%) with the usual show preparation : out of field , bath, load, show, back home.  His first show since Autumn 2017.

Rio won the Foreign Breed class and then went into the in hand ring championship.  About eight forward but two lovely types took my eye (and the judge's) : a dun Section C gelding and Rio (I am slightly biased) .  Both did a great individual show and stood well for their presentation.   Well the judge looked..... and looked.... and looked and yep, once again, the Welshie took the award above Rio!!!!  Repeat of last year when a Section B colt placed above Rio.   Just waiting for a judge to be brave enough to place an APHC USA Appaloosa above a Welshie .... but we do live in North Wales and they are both so different in type, expression  and movement.  Still a lovely show, great judge, very friendly and you have to go with the flow.  She was impressed by his beautiful head, great trot and muscling.

Rio now glows in the dark he is so clean.  He also qualified for NCPA Pony of the Year Show and the 2019 SEIB Trailblazers Championships - neither of which we shall do.
