Name: Cotebrook Charlies Spirit
Born: 13th May 2008
Breed: Shire
Sex: Filly
Sire: Cotebrook Ben Macdhui
Dam: Cotebrook Charlies Angel

Spirit was the first foal born to Charlie's Angel.

Angel was mated with her half-brother, Ben Macdhui (both sired by Moorfield Charles, our great breeding stallion). Hasn’t it worked out well!! What a superb big mare over 18 hands high.

It proves that inter-breeding can work if your blood lines are strong, and Charlie’s were exceptional. He lives on at Cotebrook in his offspring, and Angel’s foal has been named Cotebrook Charlies Spirit in his memory:

Spirit has been successful in the show ring and her foal from 2014, Cotebrook Loch Scye now owned by Alistairs son Matthew, is unbeaten in the show ring.

Spirit had Scyes sister in January 2016 and we have named her charlies Bonnie Lassie. 

Spirit is in foal to Leverton Leonardo and is due in May 2019.
