Breeding Date: April 11, 2015
Expected Due Date: March 16, 2016 (@ 340 days)
I am proud to say that Ladyhawke has been selected by the VDL family to represent the quality of offspring produced by Glenfiddich VDL. This is the first foal crop that will be presented at the annual stallion show.
Ladyhawke is everything that we could have hoped for the cross of Glenfiddich VDL with Gwenhwyvar!! I am so excited to see her as she develops over the next couple of years as she is being retained for a future sport and breeding career.
Ladyhawke had been sick prior to my arrival and had lost alot of weight, but thankfully she is starting to get better. Since she was up in the stables, we decided to take a little video of her in the jumping oval.
Ladyhawke is looking well out in the winter fields - maybe at a bit of an awkward stage as she is coming three years old.
It will be interesting to see how she grows and develops this year as we get ready to present her at her studbook inspection and hopefully for her IBOP.
I am hoping that we can also get her pregnant this year.
Ladyhawke passed her IBOP today with a score 79 points. I'm thrilled to say that means that she has now earned her elite predicate just like her dam Gwenhwyvar and granddam Apolaris.
I am just so excited to have gotten a pregnancy from the legendary Chin Chin!!
Chin Chin had a very impressive jumping career. Together with his former owner and rider, Jaime Azcarraga from Mexico, this combination competed in Seoul at the Olympic Games where they placed sixth individually. In 1990, Chin Chin and Jaime Azcarraga started in the first edition of the World Equestrian Games in Stockholm.
On September 12, 2007 the extraordinary Chin Chin passed away, he was 29 years old.
Now, 13 years later, another direct offspring will be born!
We were so happy with the quality of Payden, that we simply could not resist the chance to breed Ladyhawke for a second time to the legendary Chin Chin. Although it will delay Ladyhawke's career in sport by one year, fingers crossed for a keeper filly.
I am so excited to say that Ladyhawke has gifted us with the amazing gift of a beautiful Chin Chin filly!
