finn_hdIt is with our deepest heartfelt sorrow that Adsagsona and Celtic Manor Farms announce the tragic loss of Double Take (aka Finn) at 3:45 PM, March 19, 2014, due to colic complications.  Finn died too young and before his career fully unfolded.  He was due to be shipped to Jutta Heinsohn for continued training and to start his under saddle show career this weekend.

Finn shared the remarkable traits of his father – excellent pe
rformance genes, bone, and conformation; wonderful intelligence, beauty, sensitivity, and boldness; athleticism, character, strength, and regretfully, stoicism.  We have always thought of him as “Daddy in Black”.

Owned and loved by Gina Kirby, and adored by Jutta and Laurie, we miss you deeply, Finn, and keep you in our hearts and minds!

Double Take was sired by KEC Double Diamond, out of Penmerryl’s Vespa.  Bred by Kilkelly Farm.  Double Take is survived by two full brothers.  May they bring as much delight as their eldest and first!
