Trevalda mares - purebred Irish Draught

 

Pictured below are our three purebred Irish Draught mares, all of which have been imported from Australia and have the best of bloodlines and are outcrosses to our resident stallions in New Zealand. 

Richmondlea Delia (pictured top) is our newest acquisition and is due to arrive in New Zealand at the end of September 2015 in time for the breeding season. Delia is a superbly bred mare and has been the foundation mare for Tullow Stud (Chris and Sue Tufnell) in Australia since they imported her from Ireland. Born in 2002, Delia is by Crosstown Dancer (Grade A Showjumping Gold Merit stallion) and is out of Richmondlea Dara (A Premium status mare by Mountain Pearl). Delia was placed as a foal at the Royal Dublin Show and since arriving in Australia has won Supreme Champion Irish Exhibit at the Royal Melbourne Show. Delia is registered with both the Irish Draught Horse Society of New Zealand and Australia.

Tullows Trevalda Dream (Tommi) pictured above is a two year old filly by Australia's leading sire of eventers, Conqueror King (RID). Tommi's dam is Richmondlea Delia.

Kilharken Heather (Keeley) pictured at top is now a 19yr old mare. She is by Kiltoghert Casey and out of Suma's Harkaway. Keeley has a full brother standing at Stud in Australia (Kilharken). Keeley is everybodies favourite who visits the Stud and after two seasons of failed attempts to breed her, we are so excited to announce that she is due to foal to Ballineen Blue Mountain at Xmas 2015. Keeley is registered with both the Irish Draught Horse Society of New Zealand and Australia.

Pictured below Keeley is Tarahill Kulzari. Zari is an Irish Sport Horse by Branigan's Pride (RID) and out of a TB mare, High Society. Zari was bred by The South Australian Police Force. Both Keeley and Zari were imported into New Zealand by Karen Evans and when Karen returned to Australia I was very fortunate to be able to purchase them both.
