1999 - 2021
Hamish was bred on a 14000 acre Sheep and Beef Station on the Wairarapa's East Coast. He was foaled on December 5th 1999 out of a partbred Arabian mare of Ngapa descent, by a Stationbred Stallion of quarter horse breeding.
Hamish was not a big stallion and stood at 14.3 hands but what he lacked in stature he more than made up for in substance, temperament and athleticism. Hamish had delightful ground covering paces, excellent bone and exceptionally strong feet. He also had a fantastic constitution and was never lame or unwell, until the day we lost him. He was a stallion to add hybrid vigor, great character and movement to his mares.
We loved Hamish for his eye catching good looks, his kind and gentle disposition and his ability to stamp each and every one of his foals with his very best features. He was one of the easiest horses I have ever had to handle and was a complete delight to have on the property.
I have lost a piece of my heart but oh how very lucky I was to have known him and how privileged I was to share all but the first couple of weeks of his life with him. He was a king amongst horses, a sire amongst sires and a friend and confidante of nearly 21 years - may he rest in peace, forever grazing the lush pastures in heaven. Hamish, I will miss you Thank you. For everything.
