Kerryoak Lady Dawn is a select hornby premium Registered Irish Draught purebred mare we imported from England where she did well showing in the Irish Draught breed classes. Dawn stands a full 16.1hh and has a near 10 inch of good flat bone. When I was looking to add a 3rd RID mare to join our family I knew instantly when I saw Dawn standing in her field one cold wet February morning that she was the one. She is one of the most lovely old style Irish Draughts I have ever seen and is admired by many Irish Draught enthusiasts. I didn't waste anytime and immediately snapped her up before someone else did. When we purchased Dawn she was heavily in foal to the dear old RID stallion Riverbank who sadly passed away two years later. Three months after Dawn had arrived in America she gave birth to a beautiful Irish Draught filly by Riverbank who we have retained for our breeding program and has since passed her RID inspection.

Kerryoak Lady Dawn is a Select hornby premium mare who has done quite well showing in England. Dawn is a lovely example of the Irish Draught, good bone, lovely movement and is a nice compact girl. She has a lovely temperament, completely laid back and can be used to ride or drive, weddings and all!!

Dawn scored 169 points at her inspections, which is an excellent score for a mare.

Dawn had 6 foals in England before coming to America, they were by Roma Atlantic Moonshine, Attwood Black Laughton, Etherow Impasse, Rhyd's Sea Quest, On A High and Riverbank. Dawn produces lovely babies with superb conformation, great bone and excellent temperaments. Her bloodlines make a great outcross for most RID stallions here.

Since coming to America Dawn has had a filly Rivi Era Girl by Riverbank who we retained for our breeding program, a colt by Touch Of the Blues. (Manu Forti's Touch Down) who is being run on as a stallion prospect and a filly by Touch Of The Blues.

Dawn is by Gortboy who is by Grey Macha out of Arundels Purple Heather by Ben Purple. Grey Macha was a fine example of the Irish Draught, producing many champions in the ring, both in Ireland and England. He has produced some excellent hunters that have gone all the way to Wembley London (top show for hunters and jumpers). Ben Purple, Dawn's Grandfather, has produced some top International Jumpers including Olympic mount, Custom Made (ISH) ridden by David O'Connor. We are very proud and feel very fortunate to own such a lovely mare. Ben Purple is also one of the best mare producers of all time. Dawn's Grandmother on her sire side was the lovely Irish Draught mare Pink Carnation who was a prolific brood mare and had a very successful show career.
