CARRIAGE AND ROADSTER SIRES
Firso m order m this class w»i the wellknown old favorite, Rousbb, by Messenger, dam Kate O'Shane, by Oaledon (imported) entered by Mr J. Porter. Ho is m tip-top order, and we never saw him looking better, though only just oif the tussock. He needs no description nor recommendation, his qualities being testified to by a lot of promising young stock throughout the district. Blackwooi) Abdallah —by Homer, entered by Mr Max Friedlander, is also like the "good wine" that "needs no wish." He appeared m the very pink of condition. He is a splendid-tempered horse, as quiet as a sheep, a strong recommendation m a sire. His popularity is evidenced by the fact that his list for the season is already very nearly full. Duncan Abdalcah, by Blaekwood Abdallah, dam Fanny, by Shales, also entered by Mr M. Friedlander, is a good all-round colt rising two, coal black, with white hind feet, of capital action, and having all the makings of a big strong horse, already measuring an inch over fifteen hands. He took the first prize at Ashburton last year as a yearling, and the year previous as a foal,and lias doubtless further honors m store for him. Altogether, with the exception of last year (Avhen the entry was swelled by the large number of horses brought up to this district for sale), the show of entires Avas the best that has ever been got together m Ashburton on Horse-parade day.
