Spirit was the first foal born to Charlies 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 Spirit was 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 showring.
Spirit had Scyes sister in January 2016 and we have named her Charlies Bonnie Lassie.
She had a fabulous foal in 2019 which Alistair called Charlie’s Memory.
Spirit is in foal to Leonardo and is due in March 2021.
