TARMAC AMAZON $6000 IDHA Reg F2 Bay Tobiano 1 yo Drum Filly
Dam: Speciocissima Abbernecio UKSHS (Muwarra Black Opal x SX Major) 17.2hh
Sire: Mountain Park Apollo IDHA(Arcadian TInkerbell F1 Drum x Geordie GC) 15hh
Amazon is a uniquely marked filly with an abundance of hair and feather, and the sweetest of temperaments
Being a lower percentage F2, with 32.5% Gypsy (Apollo, from Geordie & Cahirmee) 12.5% Clydesdale, and 50% Shire her percentages are a wonderful opportunity for an astute breeder, she combines some excellent Gypsy cobs, with true Clydesdale & Shire working lines. Sire Mountain Park Apollo, is a lovely well marked, boy, with lots of hair and feather, and a sweet nature. Amazons dam, Aby is a lovely dependable working horse, marvellous in harness, with a huge amount of presence.
Amazon has the sweetest and most chilled out, of temperaments, she adapts to new situations very quickly, and has been raised with exposure to everything, other farm animals, machinery, a large herd of mares and youngsters, and all the usual goings on, she is a sensible and sane horse, used to being washed, feet picked up, groomed, wormed, haltered and led, she has had the basic handling for someone to easily go on with.
Amazon will be an impressive mare under saddle or in harness when she is mature, we expect her to mature around 16hh. Very few drums in Australia are bred from mares that are a genuine 17.2, and from a larger stallion, so we have high hopes for her. She has loads of mane and tail and a moderate amount of feather, she has a lovely shape and moves beautifully.
Amazon is easy to catch, lead, loads well and travels beautifully, she loves a bath, is good to trim her feet, and comes pressure really nicely. Amazon is losing her winter coat, and we are impressed at how she is maturing.

Aby is a phenomenal mare in harness, sensible, trustworthy and sure footed, we really enjoy working with her, and she is marvellous even after long breaks, a joy to have out and about! Apollo is a rare find for Drum breeding in Australia and is a magnificent boy, lovely action and gorgeous colouring !
