|Name:||Coachmills Lady Fiona|
|Sire:||Collessie Cut Above|
Fiona was purchased by The Cotebrook Shire Stud in Autumn 2017. She was suckling a foal at the time and has been a regular breeder in the past.
Because of her age she wasn't an expensive mare, but her father, Collessie Cut Above, was probably the greatest breeding Clydesdale Stallion of modern times. Although Fiona is an older mare her confirmation is outstanding. She might be a little on the small side but Clydesdales are of a smaller stature than Shires.
Alistair decided to take a chance on buying and breeding from her using Edwards frozen semen.
She will be artificially inseminated in the Spring of 2019. It will be interesting to see, providing that she goes in foal, what the outcome will be using a Cut Above daughter and Moorfield Edward - two of the greatest stallions of the two breeds.
