12.2h | 2007 | Sport Pony Stallion
Ferguson Uno – Moleview Mohawk
At just 12.2 hands, Woodbury’s Harlequin is an adorable new option for sport pony breeders that are looking to emphasize jumping ability. His pedigree includes a high percentage of Welsh and Arabian blood, strongly consolidating his type and expression. Grandsire Neron stood in Holland and was approved with the NRPS.
Harlequin’s dam is herself a graded sports mare who has earned a Ster predicate. She was successful in both dressage and showjumping.
Harlequin was lightly shown in 2009 and 2010 with resounding success. He won 11 Champion or Reserve Champion placings in-hand and finished second at PoniesUK.
Now being shown by a small, junior rider, Woodbury’s Harlequin shows a strong desire to please and is both bold and careful over fences.
The Harlequin foals, out of pony and horse mares, are athletic and typey and display their sire’s kind, intelligent character. His first North American born foal will arrive in 2016.
With excellent quality frozen semen, we look forward to offering this pony stallion on a limited basis to US breeders.

Canadian Breeders Shipping from Moore EquineTo help our Canadian breeders save on shipping expenses and the hassle of getting an import permit, Hilltop Farm ships a limited amount of frozen semen to Moore Equine in Calgary, Alberta at the start of each breeding season for distribution within Canada. We will ship four doses of frozen semen to Moore Equine for each contract booked prior to this group shipment. Doses will be distributed at a max of two doses per cycle. If a mare is not confirmed in foal after utilizing those doses, it would be necessary for the mare owner to follow our typical import procedure to obtain semen for any additional breeding cycles. All shipment requests for semen in Canada will still be sent to Hilltop Farm and follow Hilltop’s standard notification schedule. For more information on deadlines to be included in the group shipment to Canada or to inquire about frozen semen already located in Canada contact Brittany.
Mare Management RemindersAt Hilltop Farm we want to work closely with you and your veterinarian to ensure a successful breeding season and are available for questions at any time. The following information includes some basic suggestions as well as reminders on a few requirements for your breeding contract.

A Breeding Soundness Exam including a uterine culture is recommended, but not required, for all mares prior to breeding. If a mare fails to settle after two breeding cycles, Hilltop Farm will require a culture and cytology to be done at that time prior to any additional shipments of semen. We always recommend your vet checking your mare post-breeding to confirm ovulation. If a mare hangs on to a follicle longer than expected, it can be less expensive to ship additional semen than it would be to breed a second complete cycle. Getting your mare settled in foal is just the beginning. We recommend multiple pregnancy checks to help prevent cases of twins, misdiagnosed pregnancies, or lost time in the breeding season. The following schedule is what we recommend; only the first and fourth checks however are required by your breeding contract.
- 1st check (Required): 14-16 days post ovulation - optimum time for vet to pinch off a twin if more than a single ovulation is noted.
- 2nd check (Recommended): 28 days post ovulation – to confirm a viable pregnancy as the heartbeat normally appears by day 25.
- 3rd check (Recommended): 35-40 days post ovulation – to confirm maintained pregnancy prior to endometrial cup formation. Mares that slip foals early may not come back into heat.
- 4th check (Required): 55-60 days post ovulation – final confirmation of pregnancy in its critical first trimester.
Registration InformationYour mare’s registration and approval play just as important of a role as the stallion’s approvals when determining registration options for your foal. Please keep in mind that in order to register your foal with a specific association, your mare may first need to be presented to that registry for approval. In addition to the registries a stallion is approved with, there may be additional registration options based on your mare’s eligibility and the stallion’s credentials. If you are confused at all on registration options for a potential foal, please speak with Hilltop Farm and your breed registry PRIOR to booking your breeding.
