Approved and Registered Irish Draught Mare
PADIS CLASSIC DESIGN
Producer of Class 1 and Class 1 Eligible Purebreds
Cerulean Farm welcomes total outcross, Padis Classic Design, as a valuable asset to our select purebred Irish Draught breeding program. Lia's sire is the legendary Silver Merit, Class 1 stallion, Mountain Pearl, whose total outcross bloodlines are considered pure gold in the Irish Draught world. I had the great pleasure to witness Mountain Pearl's show jumping performance at Equitana in Louisville, Kentucky. This most impressive 17.2 stallion not only soared over near 1.40 meters in a tiny arena, he had perfect form and walked off on the buckle amidst crowds and several other stallions in close proximity. Lia is out of the exquisite traditional RID mare, Loguestown Classic by Annaghdown Star.
Lia is one of very few purebred Mountain Pearl, RID daughters still producing in the US. Lia stands 16.3, is traditionally built and notably uphill. Her lovely topline flows into one of the best saddle positions we've seen in the breed. Her strong short-coupled back, balanced conformation, very correct limbs and ample bone is pure quality. Lia feels like being in the presence of a mountain, yet she moves like a dream, light on her feet. We couldn't be more pleased with our first purebred foal, Cerulean Designer Pearls by Bridon Belfrey. Lia is currently in foal for a full sibling due Spring of 2023.
