for Kandice

Some of our broodmares are retired or sold, but we still have their youngstock growing on, so their damline is important. viz...

Ringfort Heloise du Moulin by Cobra 18 out of Moulin Fontaine; Ringfort Reve du Moulin by Glasgow van't Merelsnest out of Moulin Fontaine; Ringfort L'Allegro by Tolegro out of Ushi.

Ringfort Rara Ruby

During one of my three short-lived retirements, our international 3* eventing mare (who, since her own retirement from eventing, has had five Ringfort colts), was given to a great friend and supporter of Ringfort.

We had always said we would never sell her but rather than just retire her to a field we gave her to this friend . She has had a foal by Diamond Discovery and is in foal for 2018 to the excellent Holstein stallion standing at Drumhowan Stud, Vittorio.
