WINNING SIRE OF "TWO PROGENY BY THE SAME SIRE" AT THE 2010 AND 2012 CENTRAL DISTRICTS ALL BREEDS FOAL SHOW.

SIRE OF SUPREME CHAMPION FOAL AT THE 2012 CENTRAL DISTRICTS ALL BREEDS FOAL SHOW.

Des does not stand to the public for service.

Sunday's Destiny is the inspiration for our stud name Destiny Sporthorses. We have retained him as a foundation stallion because of his temperament, lovely conformation and movement. His progeny have fantastic temperament and trainability.

Des is a 16.1hh clyde x TB. He is black with white ticking through parts of his coat.

Des lives on a farm in Mangaweka which is 30 minutes south of Taihape, one hour north of Bulls. Des is able to either hand serve or paddock run with mares.

Des was started under saddle mid 2005 by us and then did two inhand shows as a rising two year old. In July 2006, he was re-started under saddle and then did a months hacking experience with Lone Park Stud before going back to the farm to run with his mares. Des's temperament showing that he can be ridden at any time shows how well mannered he is.

Des is registered with the NZ Sport Horse Promotion Board.

"Just thought I'd let you know Murphy is an absolute star (you probably already knew that). He just does everything asked of him, beautifully picks up his canter leads, he's just a star."



Destiny's Rendezvous

Ronnie is certainly the image of his sire! Currently 15.2hh as a three year old, he will grow approx 16hh.

Ronnie was sold as a weanling and we lost track of him. Luckily for us, his current owner Carol phoned and we were able to be back in touch with the stunning young man!

Des's white ticking is due to the sabino gene, not the true roan gene. Researchers on colour genetics state that the true roan gene does not exist in clydesdales and the ticking is commonly mistaken to be true roan.
