Kenwoods Royalist update

Royalist has settled very well. It is a big ask of a 17 year old stallion to move but he is a real softy.

We have 7 mares in foal to him and there are some interesting crosses. They are  Brookhouse Snowflake (Hilin Caradus ex Weston Diana), Birtley Mistic Meg (Brookhouse Chuckler ex Stoak Madelaine), Birtley Stardust (Birtley Mistermoon ex Henstead Cinders), Birtley Daydream (Brookhouse Chuckler ex Seaholm Damsel), Birtley Shimmer (Brookhouse Chuckler ex Tanygroes Spun Silk), Birtley Magic Girl (Lemonshill Hylight ex Stoak Madelaine) and Birtley Moonbeam (Birtley Moonlight ex Birtley Dawn) - foals due from mid April so watch this space.

We have a  2 year old colt by Birtley Merlyn for sale - good to catch, has both stones and moves for fun, out a top class mare (Llangeitho Penny Royal). 

 

News 2013

We are pleased to announce that the great Dutch stallion Kenwoods Royalist joined the stud in May. Birtley Daydream and Birtley Magic Lady have been scanned in foal to him.

Stoak Madelaine 1989 - 2012

Sadly we have had to have Stoak Madelaine put to sleep. She was 23yo and had been a great mare for both the Stoak and Birtley studs, breeding Stoak Marie (Res Supreme ridden at the Royal Welsh 2000), Birtley Moonlight (2nd Royal Welsh) and Birtley Magic Girl (6th Royal Welsh Barren Mare 2011) plus many more champions. We have 3 of her daughters and a son in the stud plus their offspring so she lives on here but she will be sorely missed.
