Lancelots dam, Kippure Kim, a bay registered now roan mare has the most extraordinary rare Connemara bloodlines. Herself she has no record of achievement but the achievements of her parentage as influences on the breed are now legends in books. Her sire, Thunderbay, described as a miracle pony who seemed to fall from the sky he was late to be used and had many years of unknown location, he is a rare but very important line. A direct decendant of Thunderbolt, you wouldn’t need to delve far into record of FEI recognised Connemara ponies to find many of them are representing the Thunderbolt line way back, rarely would it be this close in bloodlines of an approved stallion available in the current market.
His exceptional quality, substance, bravery, movement and temperament are proven to have passed on to his progeny without disappointment
