The Mares of Watermark Farm

The Foundation Mares

When Anne and Bill began selecting mares for breeding purposes, they looked to distance bred Thoroughbreds. These mares usually had a racing career behind them and often joined the breeding herd later in life. These mares pedigrees have bloodlines that are extremely hard to find in modern Thoroughbreds as they were horses bred to run well over a mile. In having been bred for distance running, the mares 'type' was that of a lean, slow twitch, flat muscled animal with a very long stride and great endurance. When bred to the 'chunkier' type of imported stallions (Abundance and Dekor specifically), an excellent athletic type was produced time and again. While this result has proven itself over the generations of sporthorses born here at Watermark Farm - it is the basis for our program and the results are undeniable with our internationally successful athletes.

The foundation mares were Nobody Much (not pictured), Miss Chain Link, Today I’m Trying and Villa May.

Their Sons and Daughters

Each of these mares left wonderful sons and daughters as their legacy, some of which were retained by Watermark Farm for both competition and breeding purposes.

Villa May had our stallion Adamant as Watermark Farm’s firstborn homebred, by Abundance.

Nobody Much had 9 foals by Abundance, including Rushton, Ruxton, Jackie Blue, Tiara and our stallion Again and Again. He had an extremely successful undersaddle career with the distinction of being a US bred stallion that competed through Grand Prix and has gone on to sire Grand Prix horses.

Miss Chain Link had several foals by Abundance and Dekor, including Aurora who was a successful FEI dressage horse and competed at Preliminary Level in Eventing before joining the broodmare band as a teenager.

Today I’m Trying had numerous successful foals during her prolific career. Able Spirit WF and Dynasty WF both joined the breeding herd in 1995.
