Taraco Crossfire 

(Click on photo to see more photos)

 

Crossfire - firing (as in combat) from two or more points so that the lines of fire cross; a situation wherein the forces of opposing factions meet, cross, or clash

After what seemed like an eternity, Charm finally foaled bang on her due date (26th March 2004) with a very strikingly marked chestnut sabino colt. The first ever Taraco Welsh Mountain Pony had been born. It wasn't to be the longed for filly, but  we could not be disappointed with  such a striking colt - his name reflects the explosion of colour and markings. He is out of our superb foundation mare Ringstead Charming Lass who is a multiple supreme champion and medal winner (including  bronze and silver) and by the fantastic young medal winning stallion Larapinta Oystercatcher. Ronnie (Larapinta Oystercatcher) is by Forlan  Honey Buzzard (Springbourne Claret x Forlan Welsh Honey) so Penual Mark bred on the sire line, and Ronnie's dam is descended from the Springbourne G-line so fits well within our breeding programme.  His half brother, Tallares Sandpiper is a Royal Welsh winner and his half sister, a delightful cremello filly foal by Owston Harvest has already been successfully shown and has been retained at the stud. Charlie was sold to Emma Rushton and family and has already been  successfully shown including a winning several Championships, Reserve Champion and numerous first places in extremely strong classes!

He is a multiple prize-winning colt that has won several championships in very good company. I have lost track of the number of prizes Charlie has won but will ask his new owners for a summary soon!
