Last year Polly lost her colt, Shiprock Southern Cross, to a freak paddock accident, so we felt the name Phoenix was appropriate. This little fella is rising from the ashes of his late brother.
Phoenix is full brother to Shiprock Abbeygale and Shiprock King's Diamond. Here are photos of Abbey and Apollo so you can get an idea of how this little chap will look when he is matured.
All of our foals are handled regularly from birth, so by the time they are weaned they lead well, are happy to have their feet picked up and trimmed, go on an off a float etc.
If a buyer has a particular training requirement we are always happy to accommodate. For example, the owner of Apollo, Zues and Mercury had specific requirements for the boys to be introduced to the water hose at a young age. No problem! We hosed those boys down on a regular basis and by the time they left here they were almost asking us for their daily hydrotherapy treatment!
Phoenix will be appear on the For Sale page shortly. If you are interested in securing this perfect little chap, please give us a call.
