|Name:||Cotebrook Charlies Angel
|Born:||7th March 2004|
|Breed:||Shire (Grade B)|
As we have crossed a Clydesdale Belmont Queenie (Bonnie) with a Shire Horse (Charlie) any filly foals, like Charlies Angel, will be registered as a grade B Shire. This recognises the cross breeding and enables any foals that Angel has to be registered as full pedigree.
However, if Angel has colt foals, the foals must be gelded (castrated). This is because a stallion could breed over 40 foals per year thus diluting the breed too quickly, whereas a mare can only produce one foal per year at best.
All our foals born here have our prefix "Cotebrook” in their names. The females are named after lochs in Scotland and the males are named after mountains in Scotland. Charlies Angel is the exception to this as she was born on the morning of 7th March 2004, just a couple of hours before her famous father, Moorfield Charles, passed away.
