Mr Carlan's Mare Idalia.

The following paragraph appears in the " Canterbury Times " of the 27th ult :— "At the annual show of the Ashburton Agricultural and Pastoral Association, last November, a protest was lodged against Idalia, the winner of the first prize in the class for thoroughbred brood mares, on the ground that she was not entitled by her breeding to compete in the class. The matter has been in abeyance ever since, but Mr James Carlan, the owner, has now succeeded in showing that Idalia —not the Middlepark mare of the same name—is by Traitor from Kitty Clyde by Malton from a Venison mare. Kitty Clyde was bred by the late Mr Reginald Julius, of Waitaki, a cousin to the Bishopelect, and a rare good sportsman, of whom we could tell an entertaining anecdote, and there is no doubt her dam was very nearly clean bred. We presume Mr Carlan who has three very promising colts from the mare by Perkin Warbeck 11, will now receive his award." Referring to the above, Mr Carlan says that had he not known that the mare was what she professed to be he would certainly not have shown her, and that he was prepared to stake £100 to £1 at any time as to the purity of her blood. He says he was' a prize-winner before he came to this Colony, and complains somewhat that he was not allowed to make a statement at the time the protest was under consideration of the Committee.
