We were so excited to acquire this amazing young stallion in the spring of 2012. Orlando's quality comes as no surprise when you look at his pedigree.
Orlando's sire, Boston Bonaparte who is now in Holland was a tremendous producer for Cadlan Valley through the years. His consistent WPCA sire ratings are impressive. He was rated 1st in 2006, 5th in 2004, 2nd in 2005, 2nd in 2007, 10th in 2008, 4th in 2009, and 4th in 2010.
His dam, Millcroft Cappuccino, is a Royal Welsh Winner also. Her show record includes: 2nd Royal Welsh Junior Brood Mare 2006, 3rd Royal Welsh Junior Brood Mare 2007, Champion Section B and Bronze Medal Winner Carmarthen Show 2008, 4th Junior Brood Mare Royal Welsh 2008, 3rd Senior Brood Mare Royal Welsh 2010 1st & Ch Northern All Welsh Medal Show, 1st & Ch East Midlands, Association Young Stock Medal Show, 1st & Ch West Yorks Young Stock Medal Show, 1st & Ch Ashby de la Zouch.
Orlando was a Royal Welsh Winner as a foal placing first place as a weanling. He was imported into Canada by Stone Country Farm. While there, he did well in the show ring and produced some lovely foals. Orlando is a wonderful example of the well known and extremely successful breeding program at Cadlan Valley Stud in Wales. He is a typey Welsh gentleman who is a pleasure to own. Watch for Orlando's debut in the show ring in 2015. We have two foals coming from Orlando in 2015.
