REDUCED TO MAKE WAY FOR 2021 FOALS

Who doesn't love a handsome, classic gray Irish horse??? Quari is 3rd generation of our breeding program, combining proven performance Irish Draught with well admired warmblood and Thoroughbred blood. He was bred for eventing or hunting with an AA preferring a safe, medium+ bodied mount, that can easily clear a 4' fence.

Silver Mine's sire, Silver Tax, was picked because of his fantastic pedigree. 'Snowman' follows in the line of New Zealand's champion racing and eventing stallion, Aberlou. His sire, Aberjack, was handpicked by 'Horseman of the Century," and two time Olympic gold medalist, Mark Todd as his personal mount and breeding stallion. After competing Advanced, Aberjack stood at Tamarack Hill Farm with Denny Emmerson. Silver Tax's dam was an Irish Draught bred in the US from Suma Stud breeding stock imported by The Fork in NC. Suma's Poll Tax was crowned IDHSNA Supreme Show Champion. Her dam The Thatcherite won Millstreet as a 5 y/o with Poll Tax at foot. Arguably, it's one of the strongest ID dam lines in the world. Silver Tax has almost identical Irish Draught pedigree as Class 1 stallion, Diamond Power.

Taproot Strike the Bell is a Bronze Merit Awarded Approved Irish Draught Sport mare by the stunningly gorgeous, Bridon Belfrey. The Bronze Merit is a distinction for strong jumping ability by the IDHSNA. When you Google, Irish Draught, the shinny photo of Belfrey at inspection as a 3 y/o is one of the very first results. Belfrey always passes his substance, movement and presence to his offspring and Strike the Bell passes the same to her foals. Her dam was sired by Voltaire, who rarely needs introduction in the warmblood world. He continually produces top level competitors in Hunters/Jumpers and Dressage. He produced over 200 State Premium Mares over 70 Approved sons.

If you are looking for a strong, masculine, well bred colt to bring into your breeding program, Silver Mine is a great prospect. If you 'just' want a gelding to hunt or event around the mid-levels, he would love to do that job too. He's everything the AA could want in a 50% Irish Draught.

We expect Taproot Silver Mine to mature around 16.1-16.2h hands with a strong, mid-weight build.
