Our lovely Whippy died
24 hours after foaling, 17 May 2003. She had colic like symptoms
which we treated with umpteen different things with the Vet
but although we got her out of pain she died during the night.
Her massive colt, Brutus, is doing well, does not miss her at
all as he has a bonny coloured cob of the Cashes who is feeding
him on demand.
our earliest purebreds Whippy has always held a special place
in our hears, she had a wicked sense of humour but loved people
especially Susie. She had super style over a fence, bucking
Marily off on landing at least once out hunting but would go
anywhere she was put. She was mobbed on the few occasions she
was at a show and of course was Supreme Champion Irish Draught
at the age 16 a few years back. At 22 we were not going to cover
her again but matters were taken our of our hands. We owed her
plenty and she had a happy and fulfilling life. One in a million,
her sons and daughters will keep her name going a long time
yet. She was by Blue
out of Softee.
Whippy had 15 foals, 8 in the last 7 years, she bred 3 Dublin
Champions and we have two daughters of hers here breeding plus
her son, Huntingfield
