Rosmel's Strawberry Fizz "Fizz"

WPCSA registration number: B-40408
foaled: April 25, 1999
Sire: Rosmel's Bey Cracker, B-32424
Dam: Rosmel's Rachelea

Rosmel's Strawberry Fizz was our foundation mare. Purchased in 2001, this flashy section B, liver chestnut roan mare was worth her weight in gold. Her dam, Rosmel's Rachelea, sired by WPCSA Sire Legion of Merit GlanNant Tango, is a champion in hand. Rachelea is a full sister to champion Rosmel's Raphael and Rosmel's Michelangelo. Strawberry Fizz's sire was Rosmel's Bey Cracker, a large 14.2 dark bay son of Champion Rosmels Cotillion.

This long line of great champions includes GlanNant Tango's sire, Cusop Sheriff and Criban Victor, five time National Champion of Wales. Tango's dam, Duntulms Two Step is a daughter of Champion Coed Coch Ballog.

Strawberry Fizz was also entered in "A" rated competitions placing first in Fillies under Two years of age, and taking Reserve Champion at the same show. She always placed in the top three in each event she had been entered in prior to becoming a brood mare.

We are fortunate to have obtained such a high quality dam for our breeding program for several years. To date, Fizz produced four beautiful foals for Hickory Springs: a bay filly, Hickory Springs Juniper Breeze (Breeze), a chestnut colt, Hickory Springs Royal Courier (Tristan), a liver chestnut roan colt, Hickory Springs Donnacaidh (Duncan)and a gorgeous red roan colt, Hickory Springs Argyle Sox,(Argyle)sired by our very own stud Telynau Grand Slam who was born April 28, 2009. This was to be her last foal for us as she passed away on Sept 24, 2009 due to colic.

Fizz was a loving, nurturing mother with an inquisitive mind and a gentle disposition. As our foundation mare, she produced quality foals at our stud. Rosmel Strawberry Fizz is sadly missed and will never be forgotten. She was such a wonderful and outstanding contributor to our stud farm. We will be retaining her last colt, Argyle to continue her line here at Hickory Springs.

We thank Rosmel Welsh Ponies for allowing us the opportunity to own, love and cherish such a gorgeous broodmare. Her offspring are out winning in the show world, and we are so proud of their achievements. We hope that Tristan, Duncan and Breeze live long lives and continue to have successful show careers, including our very own Argyle. Contact us if you would like to consider one of our foals for your breeding program or competition.
