Torrs Trueform x Langalbuinoch Rowena (x Ayton Perfection)
Quicksilver, imported from Scotland in '94, remains one of the most influential sires of our breeding program. He left us broody females with an abundance of clyde character, giving us a solid foundation to our program. These mares include
- Carmen (dam of Fashion, Heaven & Kora)
- Beth (dam of Gillian, Integra, Lia & Milestone)
- Annette (dam of Farrah & Kamille)
Quicksilver was used here until 2001, when he was sold to Anheuser Bush.
Torrs Cup Winner
Torrs Bardrill Ideal x Balgay Elizabeth Ann (x Broom Gallant Lad)
Another imported stallion, Cup Winner was out of the mare Balgay Elizabeth Ann whose sire Broom Gallant Lad and dam Maidenplain Davina link him to Quicksilver, as they are Quicksliver's great grandsire & great granddam.
Cup Winner bred successfully for us for many years, and these daughters are still producing exceptional offspring for us.
- Farrah (dam of Jorja, Kelso, Lettie & Nutmeg)
- Dana (dam of the black stallion standing at Soaring Eagle Farms, Willow Way Marshall)
- Felicity (dam of Lark & Kiefer, the Res. Jr Champion stallion at the '12 RAWF)
- Adrien (dam of the great producing mare Willow Way Floss).
Willow Way Altima
Live Oak Omega x Willow Way Nicky (x Croydon Aristocrat)
Live Oak Omega
Ayton Perfection x Doura Douglas's Delight (x Doura Excelsior)
We leased Omega for 2 breeding seasons, in the years 2001 & 2003. The most successful foaling year to date was when the Omega foals arrived in 2002. From this crop we obtained future herd sires Altima & Bacardi, as well as broodmares who would prove to be our best producing line of mares, these mares include
- Chanel (dam of Havanna, Ideal, Jolie & Mhorita)
- Carlene (dam of Juliette, Lita & Marianna)
- Clarice (dam of Kylie & Lyall)
- Cloie (dam of Jive, Kanga & Lydie)
We love the consistency of the Omega bred horses, his name is prevalent in most of our top show horses.
Gregglea Maximum Sensation
Doura Sensation x Inspector Dani (x Inspector Floss)
Zorra Highland Captain
SBH Phoenix x Pendleberry Heather May (x Phesdo Super Scot)
Altima was shown successfully as a yearling & 2 year old in halter as well as the cart futurity at the Manitoba Clydesdale Classic. He was Champion Stallion at Stampede as a yearling, and Res. Champion as a 2 year old.
He is a big horse, standing 18.1 with a great foot, an abundance of hair and a broad flat hock. We could count on Altima to throw his size, and most of his foals grew to be great hitch horses. He was perhaps a little under used here, as he was related to quite a few mares through his dam line.
He was sold in the spring of 2012 to Blaine & Trinda Martin of Boulder Bluff Clydesdales in Manitoba.
We purchased Max in 2007 as he had a very attractive pedigree & was a very modern type of horse, one that we wanted to breed to our hitch mares. He was used not only to breed but as our breaking horse. His foals all inherited his work ethic, great foot & front end. We have a number of fillies on the farm by Max, the traits from their sire make them top quality hitch prospects, as they all seem to have a little bit of fire in them.
Captain was purchased as a weanling from Ken McIntosh of Ontario. This perfectly marked, well haired colt with tremendous depth of pedigree had all the makings of a great herd sire.
He was used on a lot of our Omega mares, and the cross proved successful in the 4 years we used him. His son out of Willow Way Chanel was retained by us as a herd sire, which allowed us the opportunity to sell Captain when the situation arose.
Prince is a stallion we purchased from Tim & Jeneen Awckland in November '10 after he was Champion Stallion at Canadian Western Agribition. He was a total outcross within our program. He produced for us very hitchy modern foals possessing quality & style. We were forced to geld Prince after a minor pasture accident, so we unfortunately have only a few of his offsping on the farm.

Majestic Dreams Royal Prince
Deighton Telstar x Scarlet of Trieste (x Bandirran True Fashion)
Bacardi was shown as a 3 year old where he was Champion at both the Calgary Stampede & the Manitoba Clydesdale Classic in Austin, MB.
This 18.1 hand son of Live Oak Omega continued on the legacy started by his sire, each year producing foals known for their tremendous movement, length of neck, huge feet, beautiful heads, and his 'trademark' of a little extra chrome. We can always count on Bacardi to have very typey foals, exuding clyde character.
Bacardi now resides in Nova Scotia.
Willow Way Bacardi
Live Oak Omega x Breezy Hill Queen Tori (x Torrs Jubilant)
Willow Way Ideal
Zorra Highland Captain x Willow Way Chanel (x Live Oak Omega)
Willow Way Horton
Thistle Ridge Eaton Venture x Love's Solomon's Cilagh
(x Solomon's Admiral)
Horton was an exciting colt right from the beginning, out of the Cilagh mare that was used in the world show 6, he was an eye catching colt with a lot of attitude.
He has left his mark on his foals, adding his impressive front end, flat bone, great hocks and stylish way of moving. Horton offspring all have that special eye-appeal. We have a few Horton daughters in our group of broodmares & expect their first foals in 2016.
Horton now stands at Brunt-Hill Farm in Saskatchewan.
Ideal had an excellent show record, which included
- Champion foal, Olds foal show '08
- Res. Champion Stallion, Calgary Stampede '09
- Jr. Champion Stallion, RAWF '10
- All-Canadian 2 yr old Stallion '10
- Champion Stallion, Calgary Stampede '11
- All-Canadian Stallion, 3 years and over '11
Ideal had a few foal crops here before his untimely death in the fall of 2013. His foals were quite stylish, with strong tops, laid back shoulders & correct legs.
