Waterford was the
3rd foal from our foundation mare, Blue Hills Erin. He was by the southern gentlmen stallion,
River Roaringwater Bay.
Ford's bigger sister, Foothills
won the hotly contested ACPS Region III yearling futurity and
the following year, Ford followed closely in her hoofrints by
winning the 2nd place ribbon. Ford was quite a gentleman and a
wonderful jumper. While growing up at FFC, he was started undersaddle
by the hunter barn, Fiesta Farms, and was ridden by youth. He
also schooled cross-country at Big Bear Farms with Julie Krammer-Johnson
board. Back at FFC, he bred a few mares before being sold to his
forever home with Sarah Trompeter in Virginia, after being referred
to us by Melanie Worth. Sarah bred him to several hunter ponies
and TB mares and he left a fine legacy in the lives of those Connemara
crosses, in Sarah's heart and in my memories. He was humanely
laid to rest at age 20 due to a severe acute illness.
