'Tricky' is a real 'blue-blood' and was bred by one of the country's top studs. He is with us as he complements our 'mix' and has completely un-related bloodlines. He has passed the necessary pedigree checks and veterinary inspection to be accepted into the top 'Section A' of the Donkey Breed Society's Stud Book. He stands at stud to suitable visiting mares.
Tricky's sire, Westra Patrick, has the distinction of being the only stallion to date that has one the prestigous 'Premium Stallion Award' twice.
Tricky won the 'Progeny Points' stallion award at the National Show in 2006, when his offspring scored the most points between them at the show - this was outstanding as he only had youngstock scoring, as he had only been at stud for a very short period. He has also sired the National Champion Foal two year's running - not bad for a young stallion!
Tricky has been broken to drive by one of the top dirving horseman in the country - and now he and I are 'negotiating' about whether he is going to drive at home - he WILL, it's just a case of when!
