The gorgeous colt foal arrived into the world on Easter Sunday, and has been given the somewhat-appropriate name of BE Bunny.

BE Bunny could be ‘hopping’ over some big showjumps in the future, if he follows in the footsteps of his famous parents.

His mother (by embryo transfer) is Shane Breen’s top competition mare Zarnita, and his sire is Colmar, one of the stud’s superstar stallions.

Pook Bourne Stud in West Sussex is the new home for the breeding side of the Breen Equestrian business, and this is the first of 15 foals due to be born at the stud this year.
