Free Rayn Conundrum
2006 Connemara Filly
Sire: *Glenormiston Flurry Knox
(Abbeyleix Finbar x Oxenholm Tiffany)
Dam: Hideaway's Irish Mist
(*Rocky x Hideaway's Celebration)
Splash was a much anticipated filly as the first purebred Connemara born at Free Rayn Hill. Her sire is *Glenormiston Flurry Knox of Wildwych Connemaras in Colorado. Her dam is our own Hideaway's Irish Mist. The Flurry x Mist cross as been very successful, producing six exceptional fillies. Splash didn't disappoint us. She is a beautiful filly, true to Connemara type and temperament.
What's in a name, you ask? Why "conundrum"? A conundrum is any puzzling problem. Splash was a puzzling problem when born - her dam wouldn't let us get near enough to tell whether she was a girl or a boy! In addition, Caymus Conundrum is one of my favorite wines and you have to admit it's just a cool kind of word! As for her nickname .... it comes from the splash of white on her nose.
Splash will grow up on the hill as a future broodmare (with her unique bloodlines what else could we do) and ridden prospect for Emily. Anyone who's seen her race and prance around the pasture know she's a great event pony in the making.
