Name: Cotebrook Arkle
Born: 09.03.2018
Breed: Shire
Sex: Colt
Sire: Leverton Leonardo
Dam: Cotebrook Loch Broom

Broom’s colt foal arrived 10 days early. He is Broom's first foal and Leonardo's first ever foal. 


Leonardo was chosen as the stallion as he is not related to the rest of the Cotebrook Shire horses. He offers masses of coronet hair which will hopefully add to and enhance our existing excellent bloodline.


We are delighted with the result so far and hope that Broom’s foal will go on to be a major stallion for the Cotebrook Stud.


Arkles name was chosen by Faith and Evan Gregory who won our Name the Foal” competition. Arkle is a magnificent mountain in the

NW  Highlands of Scotland with a curving ridge of glistening white quartzite. There is also a famous racehorse named after this mountain.

Arkle first trip away from Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre was to the Nantwich and South Cheshire Show in July where he won the prestigious award of Champion Foal.
