Beautifully bred he also bred beautifully. He was Junior Champion in 2000 and Supreme in 2003 for owner breeder Gearoid Curran. Rose of Killola, Carna Dolly, Windy, and the influential Callowfeenish Dolly are some of the wonderful mares in his backbreeding. A special, perfectly proportioned pony that left his mark.
