New Shire colt to come from the UK
We are very excited to announce the purchase of a Shire colt in England to be a future stud stallion at Ingleside Shires in Australia – Escrick Extreme.
Extreme was bred by Paul and Matthew Bedford, and is by the hugely successful sire and show horse Penrhos Braveheart, a UK Super Premium stallion. The Bedford family is famous throughout the Shire world for their amazing success in the show ring over many years. Braveheart is a an 18.2hh black Shire stallion. He was the 2011 National Champion Stallion and has recently been sold to Germany.
At only 10 months, Extreme already stands at nearly 16.2hh and we are confident that he will grow into a very large, high quality stud stallion. His mother, Knutsford Carisma, is a true 19hh black mare with great breeding behind her. He was just exhibited at the National Shire Horse Show in England, and came 3rd in a very strong class where he was up against much older horses.
Thanks so much to Paul and Matthew for offering us this great opportunity to buy such a wonderful horse!
