Rackwood Annie (2009)

Dam: Rackwood Maydew, Sire: Wellbrow Samson

The Family

Annie is a compact, thick set pony very much like her father and should mature at about 13.1hh. She was well handled as a foal and shown with her dam, being awarded 1st prize Fell foal at both Weardale and Wolsingham Shows. At the autumn foal shows she was 1st prize M&M Large Breeds on three occasions and Foal Champion and M&M Youngstock Champion on two occasions.

As a yearling she was shown at local agricultural shows and the Great Yorkshire Show. She was always in the ribbons and awarded Champion Fell Pony at both Lanchester Show and Wolsingham Show. This is outstanding for one so young.

She continued her success in 2011 as a two year old and was Champion Fell Pony at Cleveland Show.

Unfortunately early in 2012 she took ill and lost her appetite and a great deal of weight. For a short while I thought it may be grass sickness but fortunately it wasn't. When spring arrived Dr Green (spring grass) soon put her right so I decided to let her have a year off and took her to Hamsterley to run with my broodmares and my stallion, Amos. Consequently in May 2013 she produced her first foal, Rackwood Miss Mollie. She has remained running with my broodmares and stallion so produced another foal, Oliver, in May 2014. I decided not cover her in 2014 as I feel it is now time to mouth and back her ready for a ridden career.
