    Default For all you event breeding buffs....Check out Bruce's new young stallion!

    I know many are seeking out sporthorse stallions to breed to for eventing so thought I'd pass on the info for those looking...

    His name is "Keltic Lion" (aka "Charlie"). He was imported by Bruce from Ireland as a baby and has his first foals on the ground who are now yearlings...all are really nice looking and super friendly just like their dad. His second crop are due this spring.

    Ah, so thats what he Charlie looks like. I had heard that he was tall, dark and handsome - he certainly lives up to that! Can't wait to see some of his babies.

    Thanks for the link!

    Thanks for the link. He does have the bloodlines..and if he can't jump....then breeding really is a crap shoot!

    Will be nice to see what he produces....I loved Eagle Lion ....and Lux Z!

    Actually he is a really good jumper. He is currently down in Fla with the rest of the horses for the winter and I believe he is going to start competing sometime this year. He is still quite young so hasn't done alot yet.
    "Iggy" (aka "Eagle") was/is awsome! I bring him carrots regularly. He now helps raise all the babies

    Good to know...he certainly looks like he should jump! And Bruce seems really excited about him.....and I can see why! I'll be sure to come check him out if I bred my mare again...he does look like a nice cross for her.

    Didn't he have a gray Lion stallion that was gelded and sold to a young hunter rider? Who used to post here years ago? I forget that one's name, due to my advancing age.

    His name was Lion King, though not grey....I had a VERY talented gelding by him.....Sad to see him gelded.

    Very nice looking, not perfect, but certainly if Bruce selected him, I'm not going to let one picture make the decision for me! Will he be doing Young Event Horse or competing at all? It would be good to see pictures of him competing, so you get an idea of what he moves like - or video clips. ALSO would like to see foal pictures, and video - if he has any yearlings, will they be brought out at any FEH things? (They should be). It would help others to see what a "young event horse" should look like....so the judges don't end up pinning Friesians and Hannoverians all the time.....sigh.....

    It's Cruise !..The picture is a bit blurred (it's suppose to be) so hard to tell. It's not my favorite.

    Lion King was a liver chestnut (same family on the Dam's side). The grey stallion he rode was High Scope who was also Irish but not related.

    I can't find any pictures of him moving and different angles would help clear up some of the conformation questions. Are there other photos?
