Meeting Royaldik, Tilly’s foal sire, at B&W Equine Vets

By Wiola Grabowska

Meet Royaldik, one of the nicest, most easy going stallions I have had a pleasure to encounter (and having spent several years riding out of Polish Stallion Depot in Boguslawice, I have seen and ridden a fair few!).

Chatting about the big man’s likes and dislikes 🙂

If you missed the story of Tilly awaiting her foal to this lovely stallion, check it here: Breeding my little horse of a lifetime by Kelly Hill.

Here are a few photos and a video of Royaldik with Kelly and Anwen from B&W Equine Vets who patiently answered all the questions and shared the stallion’s likes and dislikes with us – thank you!

He sure likes scratches and attention!

We learnt Royaldik likes to eat slowly, his favourite pastime is Bird Watching, he is very inquisitive but polite, loves attention and interaction with people, gives a great feeling in the saddle and is quick on the dummy!

Meanwhile, Tilly is showing clear signs of the end of this waiting game! The small, sugar/salt like looking crystals on her udder are calcium deposits that appear closer to the foaling (although can be seen on non-pregnant mares too). Apparently it’s called ‘sugaring’ and means the birth is close! Tilly’s due date is in 6 days…
