Nicki was hugely impressed with Spartacus from day one.
His gentle loving nature has surpassed any other foal she had ever bred and his stature and type speak boldly for themselves.
He represented the Drum breed at Equidays NZ as a foal and was a most enjoyed drawcard to the stand, delighting in the attention and cuddles.
He was bred to Nicki's FI Drum mare Royal Dynasty to get a super filly who clearly inherited her unflappable and eager-to-please nature from both parents and has been strongly stamped with Spartacus’ strong and athletic type.
The decision to geld Spartacus in August 2016 was not made lightly, and due to no fault of his own (in fact outward pressure to keep him as a stud was overwhelming and gratifying), we decided it was in his best interests and fitting with the new direction of Bellecara.
Spartacus was broken to harness last winter 2015 and thrived on the mental and physical stimulation. He has had very limited time since but his nature is such that it would not take much to bring him back in.
He will also be started under saddle later in the year and we are really excited to have him enjoying life out and about next year.
