Sea Lion is an American Thoroughbred stallion whose successful eventing career has been followed by a successful breeding career. His owner, Pam Fisher, reports that, “He really stamps his babies; you can always tell a Sea Lion baby. He consistently improves the lightness of the mares.” With his offspring now showing great talent and ability, the breeders have been “super happy.”
Today we are featuring three of Sea Lion’s many offspring, the first ones starting to compete and show off the traits of their sire.
TGS Lion’s Sunshine
TGS Lion’s Sunshine, also known as Rooney, is a 2019 Thoroughbred/Irish Draught cross filly. She was bred and is owned by Ann Shira O’Donnell. “Rooney” is an elegant, powerful, conformationally correct filly with solid Irish bone, a good mind and a sporthorse presence. She is out of a mare by Bridon Belfrey, RID.
“Rooney has a great temperament, good feet, a willingness to do the work…all traits to look for in an equine athlete. The Thoroughbred x Irish Draught cross has elevated my sporthorse breeding program and I am convinced that whatever discipline is your aim, a plus to any breeding program is the introduction of Sea Lion TBJC.”
In 2021, TGS Lion’s Sunshine competed in the Future Event Horse competitions. She took 2nd place for 2-Year-Old Fillies at the Central Championships, and was 4th overall in Fillies and Colts for 2021.
“She continues to mature, and we’re looking forward to the 2022 FEH season!”
Sealebrity is the half-sister of Lion’s Sunshine. Also by Sea Lion, she is out of DKH Estrelita, IDSH by Jaunty Star, RID, owned by Amy Clemmons DVM (who also bred DKH Estrelita) and Ann Shira O’Donnell. Ann says, “Heidi, a 2021 Traditional Irish Horse (TIH) is also showing the same athleticism in a 75% TB package.”
“Both Rooney and Heidi possess a friendly approach to people and inquisitive natures that brings joy to all who have met these two Sea Lion offspring.”Owner/breeder Ann Shira O’Donnell
Chatworth’s Sea Hawk
Chatworth’s Sea Hawk, aka Jude, is an Irish Sport Horse gelding, born in 2021, by Sea Lion. He was bred by John Lyons, who describes him like this:
“Jude is conformationally a perfect athletic type picking up traits from both dam and sire. In getting him prepared for Future Event Horse classes he has shown a very calm temperament, an ability to learn quickly and is very brave and forward.”– Owner/breeder John Lyons
