We have put a lot of time and effort into selecting the right homes for our babies and brood mares. We are very happy with the choices we made and we look forward to receiving regular updates from the new owners.
Despite having great success in finding good homes for the babies and brood mares, we were not so successful in finding the right home for Kings Gold. So we made the decision to keep Paddy at the Stud. Then we realized that to keep Paddy fit of body and healthy of mind he would need some female company. So Lassie, Polly and Dunny, three of Paddy's favourite ladies will also remain at the Stud.
Shiprock Stud will continue to operate and offer top class Irish Sport Horses for sale, albeit on a much smaller scale, with only two or three foals bred each year.
We look forward to continuing and strengthening the breed in Australia and to seeing King's Gold progeny competing successfully in their chosen discipline and stealing the hearts of all who come into contact with them.
