First 2023 foals born at Bellisimo
We are very pleased to report the birth of our first two 2023 foals.
There will be 4 foals to be born including 3 Section A foals and one C foal. Potteries Simon, Idyllic Senator & Glebedale Razzamataz are signing for the paternity of these foals.
February 27th , Heniarth Nellie Melba gave birth to a stunning filly by Potteries Simon named Bellisimo Noella. She will be kept for our breeding. She looks promising and combines beautiful bloodlines that we are proud of.
March 26th , our home bred Bellisimo Poppy (Idyllic Senator x Idyllic Persona) gave birth to a sturdy colt by Potteries Simon. He will go through life as Bellisimo Perrys. It is a massive colt with a lot of and bone and seems to be able to moves very well.

Bellisimo Stud buys promising stallion Pinewell Harrison
We recently laid hands on 3-year-old Pinewell Harrison. Harrison is bred and owned by the well-known Pinewell Stud. Previously known as the home of champions Pinewell Bucksfizz and Pinewell Jeronimo. We have always been big fans of these ponies.
Harrison is descended from Idyllic Idris, son of the fantastic Pendock Legend out of Idyllic Sweet Caroline, daughter of Royal Welsh Champion Idyllic Pavlova. Harrison's dam needs little introduction. This is the beautiful Lacy Holly Be, daughter of the famous Blakchill Picalo who then also passed on the beautiful roan colour to his grandson. We have always believed in the combination of Blackhill Picalo and Pendock Legend, which was one of the reasons we bought this young top stallion.
Harrison has been shown for several years under the management of Colin Tibbey and achieved many championships including a 1st place and youngstock champion at Lampeter Stallion Show and a 2nd place at the Royal Welsh Show 2022.
We are extremely grateful to Mandy Higgins for awarding Harrison to us.

Bellisimo Pixie sold to France
We recently sold this stunning filly Bellisimo Pixie to France, Pixie is a daughter of Bellisimo Harrod (by Thistledown Special Agent) and out of Bellisimo Poppy (by Idyllic Senator). It was a difficult decision as we saw a lot of future in this beautiful filly but she will get a super new home in the hands of Séléna Delaire.
We wish Séléna lots of fun with this special foal.
2022 Foals at Bellisimo Stud
We are extremely pleased with this year's foals. This season resulted in 3 beautiful foals including two section A fillies by our own bred Bellisimo Harrod and a stunning beautiful Section C colt by Parvadean Gambler out of Haygate Flo-Jo. Idyllic Persona finally gave birth to a filly after 3 years of colts.. Bellisimo Posy (Bellisimo Harrod x Idyllic Persona) and Bellisimo Flashman (Parvadean Gambler x Haygate Flo-Jo) will be retained for the future.
Heniarth Nellie Melba
We recently got our hands on the gorgeous 14 year old mare Heniarth Nellie Melba. She is a daughter of the world famous Heniarth Yarra Glen (Nerwyn Cadno x Sunwillow Yasmin) and is out of the beautiful palomino mare Sunwillow Georgina (Heniarth Quip x Sunwillow Zell-am-zee). This makes her a line-breeding product of the fantastic Sunwillow Quest. We have always been fans of the Heniarth ponies and are thrilled to now be able to add her to our breeding.
A special thanks to Maud Farghen who gave us the opportunity to buy her.
