Speculator is the leading Shire stallion in Australia, with progeny winning major awards right across the country.
Imported from England in 2005, he has great bloodlines and is descended from the breed’s most influential stallions on both sides of his pedigree.
A top performer in breed, ridden and harness classes, Speculator has the conformation, movement and most importantly temperament to excel.
While still relatively early in his breeding career, he has already proven himself an outstanding stock-getter, with foals winning Supreme Champions at Sydney Royal Show, Brisbane Royal Show and the National Shire Horse Show.
Non-fading, jet black with four white socks and a blaze, he is the very picture of a Shire and an outstanding specimen of the breed. He is a real character and is the favourite of everyone on the stud.
Frozen semen from Spec is available and we take a limited number of outside mares each season. See Services we offer (and scroll down) for more information.
Extreme is a massive black Shire colt we imported from England in 2012. He measures over 18hh and is by the stunning Super Premium stallion Penrhos Braveheart, and out of the well-bred Knutsford Carisma. He has the breeding we were really looking for in our next stud stallion. He was only shown once as a yearling in England and came 3rd in a very strong colt class at the National Shire Horse Show. He has been shown successfully by us here in Australia, winning Reserve Champion Stallion at Sydney Royal as both a 2 and 3 year old. His siblings in England are highly successful in the show ring. We are thrilled with how his foals are turning out and look forward to what they can add to our herd in coming years.
We were thrilled to be able to purchase the stunning colt, Saredon Excelsior, from England. Excelsior was the first colt by the amazing Metheringham Upton Hamlet, Britain’s most successful Shire show horse, widely viewed to be the best Shire stallion in living memory. Excelsior was the winner of the yearling colt class at the National Shire Horse Show in 2014 and several championships at country shows. Sadly we lost Excelsior after a freak paddock accident at three years of age. We have two amazing colts by him we are retaining at the stud.
