Update: after a very successful 2018/19 showing season with multiple wins and placings both in hand and under saddle, Ellie won the NZGCA high points award for both ridden, in hand and overall purebred Gypsy Cob.
Ellie had a stunning Black Tobiano colt by Westmoreland Cracker Jack in 2019 and 'Alfie" who has been sold to Serenity equine as a future stallion prospect.
Ellie and Cracker Jack.
Ellie arrived in New Zealand at the end of November 2014. Tracy met Ellie on a UK trip in 2014. She was lucky enough to stay with Jacquie Bland from whom we bought Katie. Tracy met Ellie and fell in love. At the time she was not for sale, but became available on Tracy's return. We couldn't contact Jacquie quickly enough to see if she would let her come all the way out to NZ.
Ellie is a beautiful black with a striking white face. She is out of the JH mare by Billy Gaskin (goes back to the Lob ). Breeding doesn't get much better than this. EMH about 13 hhs, delightful personality, buckets of straight silky feather, with excellent conformation and floating movement. As you can tell, we think she is fabulous.
And to top it off her birthday is 25 April- ANZAC day.
Ellie had a delightful black tobiano filly (Gallifray Lilith) on the 15th November 2015 and the following year had a gorgeous solid black colt- Gallifray Lucifer.
