*** Unfortunately, as a yearling, Colllins fell down a hill in an ice storm injuring his pelvis. The extent of this injury wasn't fully understood until his under saddle career began. Upon further exploration, through trans rectal ultrasound from one of the best orthopedic vets in the country, we found significant structural remodeling of his pelvis. We have decided to ensure his long term happiness and breeding soundness to retire him from training as a jumper fall 2018. He still enjoys hacking around the farm and passionate romps around the paddock but for this reason, he has not competed or has current performance video. Collin's progeny will prove him in the show ring. ***
