2022 bay leopard colt (Mario) by Norgaards Jason KNN 307 out of Ballyerk Mary (Clonfert Boy, Class 1 CPBS)
To make 14.2hh + with a striking leopard spotted coat
He will be SPSS Passported, but is eligible for PB Connemara with the BCPS and also KNN grading, as his dam is an approve outcross mare.
Mario is full of presence and 'look at me' attitude! A strong and correct colt, with super ground covering paces, he is well grown.
Photos taken July 2023, 3 months old and already well grown and bum high. Difficult to see on photographs, Mario is peppered with black spots along his neck and body, and down his legs.
Mario's sire Norgaards Jason (KNN 307) is fully graded with the SPSS and the KNN - passing his performance test with the KNN obtaining a huge 878.57 points out of a possible 1000. Jason's score is one of the highest ever for a KNN stallion - and the highest over all the UK based KNN stallions. Of special note within his marks are a 9 for his trot and 8.5 & 9 for his jumping technique, and gaining straight 10s for all his temperament scores.
Jason is consistently siring high scoring foals, graded both in the UK and abroad, with the KNN and the BEF Futurity. His latest foal was ranked 13th nationwide in the BEF Eventing category, up against older youngstock up to 4yo - no mean feat!
Mario's Dam, Ballyerk Mary, is our most recent broodmare here at THS, and this is her second foal by Jason. The first, Taylor, is approaching 14.3hh as a yearling, so Mario has every chance of being 14.2hh+ himself. Both Taylor, and his half sister Maybel have been successful in the show ring as youngsters, and Mario is sure to follow in their hoofsteps with his super presence and outstanding movement.
Mary has been a career broodmare producing purebred Connemaras prior to us buying her, see Mary's page for full information and details of her performance ancestors.
Mario is for sale to an approved home, deposit secures until weaning in October. He will be wormed, vaccinated and well handled.
