We have known Ollie every year of his life. He has been a wonderful horse to take to shows and promote our breed with. He loves meeting and greeting new people and is particularly fond of and gentle with children.
Oliver is of very traditional Irish Draught type, with a kind and loving disposition, tremendous bone, terrific feet, correct "uphill" structure, free movement, and a lovely refined head. He is truly a joy to live with!
Ollie entered the stud in Spring 2008, offering limited bookings. His first four mare were confirmed in foal for Spring 2009, a 100% conception rate. His first foals were shown to several regional open Championships as weanlings, and first daughter Pretty Please was the 2010 IDHSNA In-Hand 1 Breed Champion.
LineageTouch of The Blues is one of the most well known RID stallions in the world and is a proven sire of top breeding stock and competition horses. Bred in Northern Ireland by John and Sharyn Alexander, Touch of The Blues went on to win the foal championship at the Royal Dublin Show and was then sold onto England where he passed his RID inspection and went on to compete. TOTB was NASTA performance tested in England and was awarded a grade 1 status. He also very successfully competed at Intermediate level eventing in England.
Kerryoak Lady Dawn is a select hornby premium RID purebred mare that was imported from England where she did well showing in the Irish Draught breed classes.

Dawn is a lovely example of the Irish Draught. she has a lovely temperament, completely laid back and can be used to ride or drive, wedding and all! (text courtesy of Simone MacKay)
