Foals

Just 12 months after the arrival of our new stud jack Quarter Moon Half Dollar we are now welcoming his foals in 2017.

Absolutely delighted to meet both EV Peregrin and EV Dollar’s Dash. They both have the beautiful heads that I have always admired in Quarter Moon foals but also are thick set and stocky. Both have dead straight legs both back and front and lovely wide chests. We couldn’t be happier and I’m so glad we did eventually take that big plunge to import our boy from USA. Many thanks again to Pete and Carolyn Christian of Quarter Moon Ranch.

More Half Dollar babes to arrive this year but we eagerly await our other pride and joy, Satchmo babes to hit the ground again in 2018.
