For some time we considered the introduction of a dual registered quarter horse/stock horse stallion to our stud.
When the chance arose to purchase Crillee Amarillo Oak from quarter horse breeder Mr Ian Burns of Dubbo, NSW, we felt that it was an opportunity not to be overlooked.
Crillee Amarillo Oak (“Freckles”) is by Docs Freckles Oak (imp) and from the extremely well bred mare Top Mark Amarillo.
He is very nicely put together horse with characteristics that we look for in our stock horses.
This horse is contributing a wonderful out-cross with stock horse mares and would be an asset to anyone looking to introduce the calm temperament and trainability of the quarter horse into their stock horse breeding programme. He has sired many top performing quarter horses and we are delighted with the lovely, soft, and trainable horses that we are producing over our own stock horse mares. Stock by him are now competing at the highest level with success both in led and performance classes.
We haven’t taken the decision to introduce this horse lightly and have done a lot of research into the quarter horse bloodlines that most suit the ASH, both from a commercial viewpoint as well as a practical one.
We are pleased to advise that Brittany Hetherington now owns “Freckles”, and is standing him at stud for the 2018 stud season.
