ELPHIN MOUNTAIN CONNEMARAS
Elphin Lorcan is a 14.1 hh dark bay stallion out of Aluinn dé Haoine. Lorcan was Dee's first colt foal, born in 1998. His name means little lord in Gaelic. It suits him, as he certainly has a lovely stallion presence.
In November of 2000 Lorcan was sold to Brian Donnegan of Drogheda Farm in Calgary, Alberta. Lorcan made his trip out west around Christmas time, and arrived in the middle of a blizzard. We wish Brian all the best with his new stallion!
