Final foal for the season....
This morning in Australia, the final foal was born for the 2008/2009 season. "Warney", (named after Australian cricket legend Shane Warne) is possible the ugliest foal bred by Windurra Australia! Looks aside, this eventing foal is bred in the purple. His dam, the gray mare in the picture, is Brilliant Silver, whom is by Brilliant Invader, who is the sire of World and Olympic champion Reddy Teddy. The sire of Warney is Staccatto, who was the 2005 FEI #1 eventing stallion in the world. He is half Dutch Warmblood, (Salute), and half Australian Thoroughbred. Stacatto himself was a 4-star event horse.
Little Warney may have long ears, but he has the personality of a champion, just like Shane Warne.
