Collessie Alanna took supreme at the Grampian Foal show for Ronnie Black at Strathorn Farm, Aberdeenshire, when selected by the judge, Jimmy Tennant from Forth.

Alanna is by Cawdor Cup stallion Arradoul Balvenie out of Roughlands Jasmine. This three-year old mare is no stranger to success, having stood reserve at both the Clydesdale Horses Society Winter Fair and Ormiston Foal Show.

The team from Collessie had more success in the foal classes with their junior colt Collessie Gladiator. He started his show career winning champion at Perth and Ormiston Foal shows stood third in the champion of champions class held alongside the Clydesdale Horse Society Winter Fair.

He is sired Collessie Highlander and out of Littleward Lady Athena. Tulloes Sensation from Jim and Louise Greenhill secured the foal champion and overall reserve award.

Their senior colt, out of Tulloes Lady Jane and sired by Arradoul Balvenie, has been making his stamp on the show circuit having stood champion at North of Fife, reserve overall at the Winter Fair, and foal champion at Ormiston Foal Show.

His bloodlines have proven successful with his two full sisters being known winners including Tulloes Emily who is the current Scottish World Champion.

The best foal bred in Grampian went to the home-bred junior filly, Corskie Erin’s Miracle from Laura Beattie. She is by Arradoul Balvenie out of Arradoul Oran Mor and placed second in her class last month at the Forfar Foal show and was overall champion at the Keith Show on her first outing.
