Breeding Leases / In Utero Foal Sales

Please contact us if you would be interested in a breeding lease/in utero foal purchase. It's a great way to breed a foal without all of the associated worry and responsibility and in a way that enables you to spread the cost over time.

An in utero lease has already been secured for Showfields Celtic Star (Lola) for 2016/17 and she will be bred back to TF Hamish for a very excited Auckland breeder but if you would be interested in leasing any of our other mares, just ask! 

Mischique in utero contract

Mischique (or Mag - pronounced Madge) is a seven year old 15.1HH mare by the Aberlou descendant sire 'Sacred Hill Answer Back'. Answer Back was NZ SJ Horse of the Year in 2006 with Claire Wilson and is by the Aberlou son, Backchat. Mag's dam, 'Magic', won the NZ Pony of the Year title in 2004 so it will come as no surprise to hear that we have purchased this mare with the production of superstar show jumping ponies in mind. An in-utero foal contract is available for a breeding between this mare and Crossiebeg Brennan - if you want to secure this option, please get in touch with us, otherwise the resulting foal will be for sale. 

Mag is in foal to Crossiebeg Brennan and due October 2017.

Lola in utero contract

The delightful Showfields Celtic Star is a half sister to Jayne Craike's very successful GP campaigner Showfields Papanui Crusader and is our very first Warmblood broodmare. She is an extremely cute 8 year old, campaigned lightly in dressage to level three and retired to the broodmare paddock through injury. Her sire, Littorio (now deceased) should need little introduction but, in case he does, he was a fully approved and licensed Holsteiner, Oldenburg and Belgian Warmblood. Littorio was the 1995 Grand Champion of the Holsteiner Verband, Neumunster. His sire, Lord is one of the most influential sires in the history of the Holstein and Littorio was one of his last living sons. Littorio has produced National Grand Champion young stock in Europe, also finalists in free jumping and two qualifiers for the Bundeschampionart 2003 and a finalist for the young horse world championships, in Monteray, Mexico. 

Her dam sire, Ramzes II (imported Dutch WB) was a foundation WB stallion in NZ and sired a great many successful horses, including the grand old dressage campaigner and NZWB sire, Belmont Golden Boy.

Lola had a superb filly by TF Hamish this season - TF Sands of Time. Sansa is for sale, please see her advert below. 

Lola has an in utero breeding lease contract signed for the 2016/17 breeding season so is unavailable for the 2016/17 season.

TF Sands of Time

Beautiful small dressage/show hack of the future

Sansa or TF Sands of Time (TF Hamish x Showfields Celtic Star by Littorio/Ramses II) is elegant and pretty with a particularly beautiful head and eye, a superb natural topline and a cracking 'engine'. When she moves, she floats along the ground. If you want a pretty small show/dressage horse with a bit of substance, you would be hard pressed to find anything nicer for the price and she's likely to be fairly handy over fences too. EMH 15/15.1HH. Sansa will be branded, hooves trimmed and taught to lead/load on a float or truck prior to sale. Sansa is currently insured with Crombie Lockwood. DOB 05.12.16.

I regularly drench my youngstock, vaccinate for tetanus and strangles and they are hard fed alongside their dams with an appropriate broodmare feed. We give them the very best start to life at Talisman Farm.

$4k (neg. to the right home). 

Will consider deposit to hold and time payments - conditions apply, please contact to discuss. 

Charlie and TF L'il Bit Smitten

Mare and foal now both sold

Charlie is a striking, correct, upstanding and athletic young TB mare by Volksraad (sire of Nadal KSNZ/Pretorious [Fraser King?s National Title winning International eventer] & Top Shelf [Supreme Champion Show Hack] ) and out of a Casual Lies/Deputy Governor mare. A young mare at only 4 years of age she has many good breeding years ahead of her. I have had Charlie since she was a 2yo and she has thoroughly impressed me with her lovely easy temperament. She is exceptionally good to handle - Easy to catch, worm, trim and very sensible beyond her years and experience. Charlie conceived first cycle, was easy to breed and foaled without assistance. Charlie is approx 163cm. 

Charlie currently has a correct, bright and precocious filly foal at foot by the Class 1 Connemara Stallion, Crossiebeg Brennan. The foal (TF L?il Bit Smitten) has been purpose bred to become a competitive upper level large sport pony and will be branded and foal registered with the CPSNZ prior to sale. DOB 22.10.16 

Brennan is the consummate all-round sport pony with relations (mostly out of TB mares) competing at the highest levels of eventing internationally. He has an explosive jump and excellent technique, especially his back end which is outstanding. This foal has been bred with a competitive career in mind but will have the sensible amateur friendly temperament that the breed is renowned for. Brennan is 140cm 

Charlie and Lil are available as a package with the option of a return breeding to Crossiebeg Brennan (or TF Hamish) or individually at weaning. Foal fully insured for $3k.
