2016 Chestnut (Glenormiston Bartley x Glenormiston Celebration by Domo Cavallo Praize)
HWSD Status: N/N
Asham Donegal is a son of our foundation stallion Glenormiston Bartley out of a mare by the great Domo Cavallo Praize. After tragically losing 'Bart' to colic we knew we needed a special colt to carry on his legacy and we believe you won't find a better type or pedigree to carry on the dynasty!
Glenormiston Bartley needs no introduction as the proven sire of so many elite performance horses and is himself a son of the 'King of Connemaras' Castle Baron. Asham Donegal's dam is the highly successful broodmare Glenormiston Celebration who herself has performance ponies all over Australia. She is a full sister to Glenormiston Ballycarra the dam of our Champion performance ponies Glenormiston Killian, Glenormiston Ballymalloe and Glenormiston Ballyhooley and is also a full sister to Glenormiston Abbeylara, the dam of Glenormiston Annashee, who was the first Connemara pony ever to travel back to Europe from Australia. The icing on the cake of this pedigree is Glenormiston Celebration's sire, Domo Cavallo Praize! Praize was never beaten at a Royal Show winning dozens of Championships and Supreme Championships in hand, under saddle and in harness. He Evented in Open competition and was only once unplaced over a 10 year EA Eventing career. With an impeccable temperament and amazing ability he became a legend in Queensland and indeed all over Australia and is now known internationally as the sire of Feldale Mouse, currently representing Australia Eventing in Europe with his young Australian rider Isabel English.
Asham Donegal has recently been broken in and will stand his first season at Stud in 2020 to a limited number of mares. Stallion photos coming soon!
