Sea Lion: Offspring Report 2019

Ruffian Stables is proud to report that three out of the fifteen foals of 2019 by Sea Lion have been born, and are looking good!

First up (video above) is a filly born in February, out of an Irish mare. She doesn't have a registered name yet, but her owner, Annie Aul of Montgomery, Alabama, reports that she was born with "a healthy appetite and the most beautiful legs you’ve ever seen! Bay, not a speck of white!"

Next up: 2019 filly Rooney, and a colt who doesn't have a name yet:

Stay tuned! Twelve more foals on the way for 2019! 

Sea Lion's older offspring are just reaching the age to start careers, including Sunsprite Sargasso Sea SRC, a 2015 son of Sea Lion, out of a Hanoverian mare, bred by Pamela Duffy.

Another of Sea Lion's offspring, Sea Lioness, just qualified in April for the National Championships in the 3-year-old division of the Future Event Horse competition. Sea Lioness was born in 2016 out of an Oldenburg mare. She was bred by Sea Lion's owner, Pam Fisher, who trained and rode Sea Lion to event at the international 4* (now 5*) level. Pam will back Sea Lioness in May and teach her to free jump in preparation for the championships in September. They live in Los Alamos, California.
