REST IN PEACE ROYAL HIT
From the Bloomfield fb page:
'It is with immense sadness that we bring the devastating news that Royal Hit has been put to sleep, after a freak accident in his stable which resulted in him breaking his leg yesterday.
Royal Hit was adored by so many and absolutely loved by us. His sweet, gentle character and charismatic presence was like no other and will be very sadly missed. From his early morning greeting when he heard our footsteps approaching the barn, to the excitement for breeding duties when he heard the rattle of the stallion bit, his personality was infectious and would never fail to bring a smile to your face.
For those of you who are lucky enough to own Royal Hit progeny, please cherish every moment you have with these beautiful horses, and don’t take even one day for granted that you have with them.
The impact Royal Hit has made in Australia, and will continue to make through his progeny, is far beyond what most people will ever realize. He was a Genetic Masterpiece with an unmatched Siring ability.
Above all, he was a beautiful horse, our King of the Barn, and we are absolutely heartbroken. We love you Royal Hit. Rest in Peace big fella, while we never stop in our quest to make you proud.
We would like to express our condolences to Royal Hit’s owner, Paul Schockemohle, and thank him for allowing us the opportunity to bring his beautiful stallion to Australia, where he has had such a positive influence on Australian Warmblood breeding and dressage.
We are eternally grateful for the time we shared with Royal Hit, forever in our hearts and memories.’
