    Default RIP - RID The Pride of Gloster

    It is with great sadness I share the news that the RID stallion, The Pride of Gloster passed yesterday due to an unrepairable tear in his colon. My heart goes out to Tully Cross Farm and my dear friend Lisa Gerdon on the loss of this great stallion. Gloster was the only RID son of Clover Hill standing in North America. He was always a gentleman and consistently passed his clever, quiet demeanor and athleticism along to his offspring. Such a loss

    That's really awful news! I knew them from the FEH classes and they are such good people. So tragic.

    Very sorry to hear of yet another RID stallion passing. Since last summer that is now four stallions with the very best bloodlines. This will influence the future of Irish Draught and Irish Draught Sport Horse breeding in the USA for years to come.

    That is indeed the case. With fewer than 80 stallions in NA the death of 4 and their diverse bloodlines is a major loss

    I just found this thread on him- he was so expressive! My favorite thing about him was how GREAT he was to have his mane pulled...he would relax and stand still as soon as I started.

    The only two foals by him at Tully Cross are about a month and a couple weeks old, both fillies. Both full Irish and gorgeous. One is a spitting image of him- bay, compact, with the same dark around her eyes and wants to always be in your lap. The other is a very leggy tall chestnut with the coolest squiggle blaze, my personal favorite of the year since she's bonded to me.

    It was a terrible loss, to say the least, and TC has lost such a presence of him on the farm.

    I need more pictures of her, she really does look just like him and has REALLY filled out!

    And this is the last filly, my favorite:
