SuperNova is an Irish Draught Sporthorse, aka Traditional Irish Horse (TIH) who is 1/4 Irish Draught and 3/4 TB. Her dam, DKH Mystical Star, came to us mid winter already in foal to a Thoroughbred stallion, Daryoun's Dynasty. We are thrilled with the bone and substance on this filly! She should have been our lightest boned foal, but it looks like Missy throws bone and size! SuperNova is a very big foal who should finish above 16.1 hh.
Nova/Checkers/Grape...we can't quite agree on a call name for this girl...is quiet, attentive to her surroundings and super cute with her tippy ears from her momma! She tends to be the most dominant of our foals (she tries to keep Bow, the stud colt in line!) but still respectful of her people. She is friendly and a thinker, and seems to catch on quickly to what we are trying to teach her. At this time, Nova is beginning halter training/leading, she has had her feet trimmed, loads and travels well and stands quietly to be brushed. She will be available at the beginning of October following weaning. Her registration is pending with the Irish Draught Horse Society of Canada as an Irish Draught Sporthorse.
Oct. 19, 2019: SuperNova's dam DKH Mystical Star went Select at the Irish Draught Horse Society of Canada breed inspection with Horse Sport Ireland inspectors Andrew Gardiner and Charlotte Moore. She will now be entered into the IDSHC stud book as an Approved IDSH mare for breeding!
