Darkmoor Celine- $4400

Dual Registered Appendix B Shire Filly.

Celine is a lovely bay filly with three white socks, a star and snip! She’s sired by Wyee Archer out of Bucca Valley Dainty Lass (CCHS Clydesdale).

Celine is a very feminine filly with a high head carriage, who wants to be in your pocket!

She has lovely flat bone, good pasterns and a close hind leg set which should see her perform well in the show ring. Estimated mature height 16.2-17h.

She’s the first Darkmoor filly to come up for sale sired by Wyee Archer, 2014/15 All Australian Senior Stallion. This makes her a grand-daughter of the late Super Premium stallion Walton Supreme. With quality Clydesdale genetics on the dam’s side as well, she provides an excellent genetic base to either add to an existing Shire stud or to start one.

Celine has a lovely nature and will do well as a pleasure horse, show prospect or broodmare.

She’ll be ready to go to her new home in April after weaning.

Darkmoor Gemma- SOLD

Darkmoor Gemma is a beautiful full registry Shire filly out of Tullymore Lady Margaret by Darkmoor da Vinci. Bay with four white socks and great conformation, Gemma is a very flashy filly with great potential as a breeding, riding or harness horse. We expect her to mature around 17-17.2 hands.

She has an excellent temperament, learns quickly and interacts well with both people and other horses. Her super friendly, sweet nature is an absolute delight to be around.

Gemma is the first filly by Darkmoor da Vinci to come up for public sale. She’s already had basic training – catch, lead, tie up, pick up feet, float load and wash. Gemma has already been out to her first show and handled it very well.

Gemma’s dam, Tullymore Lady Margaret, is a terrific mare sired by imported stallion Arclid Adonis and has won quite a number of Champion & Reserve Champion ribbons for us. Her sire, Darkmoor da Vinci, has been a successful member of our show team since he was five months old. His most recent wins are Reserve Champion Shire Colt/Stallion at Sydney Royal Easter Show and Champion Shire at St Heliers Heavy Horse Field Days.

Bucca Valley Dainty Lass – SOLD

CCHS Registered Clydesdale Mare in foal to Darkmoor da Vinci (Black Shire Stallion)

Sired by Graceville Lodge Leopold out of Beereega Kara.

Dainty is a balance of Box Valley, Montana Park, Beereega and Valmont bloodlines, which are all regarded as some of the best in the country!

She’s bay with four white socks. Standing around 15.3, as you would expect from a quality Clydesdale Dainty has great pasterns, a good foot and lovely flat bone.

She had a rough start in life, experiencing paralysis tick poisoning and a bad case of QLD itch. As such she will only suit life as a broodmare in a Southern home! Dainty has some residual nerve damage from tick poisoning, which prevents her from being a comfortable riding horse. She could be broken to be ground driven or continue to be an excellent broodmare!

Dainty has had two foals which have shown the potential to far exceed her height!

Sold to a lovely home in Victoria

SOUTHERN CROSS KYLIE – SOLD

Beautiful 17h bay Shire mare with four white socks by English super premium stallion Trelow Father Abraham. Twelve years old, trained under saddle. Non-breeder.

Kylie is going well under saddle and has an amazing temperament. She would be ideal as a trail riding horse. She is a favourite with our whole family. We are selling Kylie because she won’t breed and we don’t have the space to keep her and a mare that will. We would love to keep her, but just can’t.

Kylie has been successfully used as a foal nanny – she was very sweet with them. She’s super quiet, gentle and sweet – has even given rides to children with an adult leading her.

Kylie would best suit an intermediate rider. She is very gentle, but forward moving. Already trained to long rein, so a new owner would be able to put her in harness if they so desire.

Kylie is easy to catch, trim and float.
