Elphin Sweet Rosaleen

Rosie was the third of Friday's babies by Mick and the only filly. As a foal, she was sweet, inquisitive and the cutest little palomino! Rosie was named after her maternal grandam *Rose of Rosabhil.

Rosie was sold as weanling to BC, with her 3/4 sister Finola. On the trip out west they shared a stall in the truck and the drivers, who were used to warmbloods, couldn't believe how tiny they were!

Rosie had several purebred Connemara foals, under the 'Starlight' prefix, by Avenn's Caibre McCarthy for Doug Morcam. She since become an accomplished school and hunter pony with Stoddart Creek Stables.

One of Rosie's foals is the 2003 mare Starlight's zara. She is owned by Jennifer Brownlow and lives on Vancouver Island, where they compete in dressage and eventing. Zara passed her CCPS inspections in 2009. We are very happy Zara has such a great home as she is a combination of some good bloodlines and really looks like her granddam, Oak Hills Gold Friday.
