Chatto Creek Connor
Sire: Chatto Creek Arthur (iiu USA)
Dam: Clononeen Sorcha (IMP UK)
Connor is an outstanding 3yo black tobiano gelding bred by Chatto Creek Gypsy Cobs from imported bloodlines. Purchased by me as a weanling, Connor has been an absolute delight to own in every way. Due to his age and size, he is currently unstarted however he happily wears a bridle and roller and has started to learn lunge commands.
Lightly competed to date (mostly due to lack of shows!). His great conformation and movement are reflected in his results including top two placings in all of his show classes entered and being crowned Champion purebred Gypsy Cob despite being only youngstock at the time.
Connor is an absolute pleasure to handle, prep and show. Nothing phases this guy, yet he’s no a slug. Fantastic to travel (float and truck), trim, wash, clip, worm, shampoo, lead, tie, rug etc. He walks out inhand on the farm, road and beach, alone or in company. He is used to noisy kids, sheep, chickens, cats, guinea fowl, donkeys and motorbikes/tractors/chainsaws.
Connor is the proverbial unicorn: a pleasure to own in every way in a versatile size that is hard to find in purebred gypsy cobs. I see him being a very successful show horse, however he will make an equally great all-around versatile family horse, able to turn his hoof to most disciplines.
Note: Connor is currently in the Waikato (Cambridge) for viewing.
This is an extremely hard sale; references will be required.
