12 November - We have decided to RETAIN our gorgeous, long-legged coloured 2010 FLORISCOUNT filly, .
Having sold her half-sister, FIRENZA FB, at only 5 weeks old, we felt that we really wanted to keep this filly - her temperament is second to none and she presents an ultra-modern silhouette - combine that with her fantastic movement and it becomes a real 'no-brainer' that we should keep this filly and eventually incorporate her into our breeding program.
Please CONTACT US for further details.
We also offer FOR SALE...
Please CONTACT US for further details.
08 November - The Stud is always delighted to receive updates and pics from our clients and towards the end of last week, the Stud received some pics of SHOLTO FB, whom we sold to Helen Strachan, Aberdeenshire, earlier this year.
It's lovely to see SHOLTO FB looking so well and relaxed with his new friends and to hear that he is coming on fine in his new home - thank you, Helen!
We are very much looking forward to this young man's future development with Helen and being able to follow him as he grows and matures.
10 October - Some new photographs of HOTWIRE FB have been added to our GALLERY 2010 page - we hope you like them...
He is coming on exceptionally well and we are very pleased with his development so far - he has a wonderfully friendly nature, very correct conformation and moves like a dream!
Although he is still sporting a few fawn foal hairs on his lower limbs, he will eventually be dark bay like both his parents - quite a change from the bright bay he was at birth, but we think that he looks even more handsome now and his new colour sets off his small white star to perfection.
09 October - It's always a joy to open an email from one of our clients to find news of our stock - today we have received some photographs of SIENNA FB taken this year - she is coming on wonderfully and we are delighted that her owner has shared these with us - you may view them on our GALLERY 2010 page - thank you, Caroline!
Have a look at the pedigree tables there and the photographs and videos of the stallions - we are confident that next season's foals will be, once again, truly outstanding!
All are available to purchase in utero - please CONTACT US for full details.
21 September - Two of our FOALS 2010 left us yesterday morning to head off to their new homes.
Both had a very good journey and are happily settling in with their new friends.
We wish their new owners a long and happy partnership with them and very much look forward to seeing photographs of their future development.
Also - further congratulations to Caroline and Davie Paton on their super results at the Ingliston Grand Slam with the beautiful yearling SIENNA FB - a 2nd in a strong 3 Years and Under Hunter Class and a 1st in the Sport Horse Yearling Class - this very correct filly is just so consistent time after time - well done!
23 August - On 19 August at the BEF Evaluation at Fountain Equestrian Centre, SIENNA FB received a First Premium on a score of 8.11 and an absolutely outstanding vetting score of 9/10!

Having been kept waiting for 2 hours past their allotted time spot, it it understandable that this delightful yearling filly was a little flat in her evaluation - one can only imagine the heights she may have reached had she been taken on time - very well done to her owners, Caroline and Davie Paton, Aberdeenshire.
21 July - Congratulations once again go to Caroline Paton and the gorgeous yearling filly, SIENNA FB , on their superb results at New Deer Show last weekend.
SIENNA FB , purchased from FLYNGBUCK STUD as a weanling, won the Yearling Hunter and Warmblood Class and then went on to take Reserve Champion of a very strong Championship Class - just wonderful news and so well-deserved!
I believe that Caroline's husband, Davie, who also shows this filly in-hand, now has some catching up to do with regard to the rosettes tally!!
30 June - New photographs added today to our GALLERY page...
28 June - The Stud is very pleased to announce that SHOLTO FB is now SOLD following his successful vetting this afternoon.
Many congratulations to his new owner, Helen, who viewed him on 20 June but had to wait until today to vet owing to our attendance at the Royal Highland Show - we wish you every success and much enjoyment with him, Helen, in the coming years!
SHOLTO FB will go north to Aberdeenshire with Helen at the end of September.
We would like to thank all who enquired about this gorgeous black colt foal.
24 June - Just time for a quick Royal Highland Show 2010 update - St Pr St HATARA FB took first place in the Sports Horse Broodmare Class for the second year running ! - this mare is an absolute gem and continues to provide us with one superb foal after another!
Her stunning 2010 colt foal, SHOLTO FB, was placed second in the Sports Horse Foal Class - he behaved himself very well indeed on his first outing and at such a prestigious show.
MAYBE FB also did the Stud proud, winning a fourth prize in the Sports Horse Broodmare Class. We were very pleased to have this mare in the rosettes once again at the Royal Highland Show 2010, having not shown her there since her success as a yearling.
Her very flashy filly foal, FIRENZA FB, continued our success by winning a third place in the Sports Horse Foal Class. She is destined to always dazzle wherever she goes.
By virtue of their placings at the Royal Highland Show 2010, they have also all qualified for the Scottish Sports Horse Mare And Youngstock Series 2010 Grand Slam Championship at Ingliston Equestrian Centre in September - quite a day for these mares and foals, not to mention for ourselves!
Many thanks to Team Singleton, Ayrshire, and to Caroline and Davie Paton, Aberdeenshire, for ensuring FLYINGBUCK STUD stock made its mark on the showing scene once again.
Having settled the mares and foals for the night, it's now time to head off to bed after such a fantastic day.
17 June - More good news arrived for us today when two more of our BROODMARES gave a positive heartbeat pregnancy scan!
Both these mares held a pregancy once again on first insemination and we extend our thanks to Laura at Provost Vets for her help.
Full details of the sires that we have used will be added to our SIRES USED 2010 page at the close of the breeding season.
09 June - The Stud is delighted to share our good news with you all that our graded Hanoverian broodmare, MAYBE FB, (Medoc x Philippo x Lotse) has had a positive heartbeat pregnancy scan at 26 days today - many thanks to Laura at Provost Vets for helping us get her in foal on first insemination.
Full details of the sire that we have used will be added to our SIRES USED 2010 page at the close of the breeding season.
More pics of this exciting, top-class colt will be added to his own page very soon...
24 May - The Stud is absolutely thrilled to announce that had a strong, healthy colt foal by HOTLINE at 1.35am this morning - both mum and baby doing well!
A very rich bay in colour, with a small star - divine!
Pics of this fabulous colt to follow soon once we have had some sleep...
21 May - We are at present awaiting our fifth and final foal for this season and we don't think that we will have to be patient for too much longer!
MADEIRA FB is in foal to the Hanoverian Champion stallion, HOTLINE, who is also a 70 day Performance Test Champion and, moreover, has a very remarkable Dressage Index of over 149 points! With his world class champion breeding of Hofrat x De Niro x Wendepunkt, it is not hard to see why this foal is so eagerly awaited.
MADEIRA FB is currently at 331 days and is positively blooming - she is waxed up and looking very much as though she will foal down sometime tonight...
11 May - We have just been sent the following photographs and thought we would share them with you...
Here is my good friend, Moira Leggat, puckering up for a kiss from FURSTENBELLE FB, who was only a few weeks old at the time...
Many thanks to Lynne Little for taking and sending us this and the next two pics! x
Next is FANTASIA FB - newly born in these pics... fast asleep!!!
And smiling for the camera... she is going to be a tall girl - very long, elegant legs with movement to match! - her 2008 half-brother, QUICKSTEP, from the same dam, GOLDEN SUNSHINE FB, was third at the Royal Highland Show 2009 in the Coloured Yearling Class and also won coloured Championships and Sports Horse Classes in 2009 - he is also a tall youngster.
We have every reason to believe that FANTASIA FB will be at least as equally successful in the show ring and later under saddle if first impressions are anything to go by!
We are thrilled to see how well this young filly is progressing, already this year having qualified for the Scottish Sports Horse Mare and Youngstock In-Hand Showing Championship in September 2010 at Ingliston Equestrian Centre.
Always a very pretty girl, SIENNA FB continues to draw admiration wherever she goes.
05 May - Following a successful viewing on 02 May, the Stud is pleased to announce that FIRENZA FB is now SOLD. This drop-dead gorgeous filly will go north to her new home at the end of September - many congratulations, Paul!
We wish you every success with her in the future and look forward to regular updates on the progress of this stunning girl.
17 April - Once again our homozygous tobiano broodmare, GOLDEN SUNSHINE FB, has produced a fabulous foal for the Stud!
This time, she was kind enough to present us with a beautiful, long-legged, chestnut tobiano filly by the very exciting young stallion, FLORISCOUNT.
Here she is at around 90 mins old - she is all we had hoped for!!
More photographs will be added at a later date.
17 April - Congratulations to Davie and Caroline Paton who purchased SIENNA FB from the Stud last year.
This SCOLARI yearling filly out of our St. Pr St HATARA FB qualified last weekend for the inaugural SCOTTISH SPORTS HORSE Mare, Foal and Youngstock Sports Horse Series 2010 and so goes forward to the Championships in September.
We are delighted to see how well this outstanding young filly is progressing and look forward to hearing of her many successes in the future.
Keep up the good work, Davie!
11 April - The Stud had a visit today from our friend, Sian Broderick, of Animal Snapper Photography.
Sian took advantage of the mares and foals all being outside at grass and took some amazing photographs of them enjoying the wonderful sunshine.
Thank you, Sian - we are thrilled with the photographs!
06 April - Following quickly on at 01.50 hrs, our St.Pr.St HATARA FB presented us with a strong , healthy, black colt with a star and two hind socks by SAN AMOUR (Sandro Hit x Plaisir d'Amour x Figaro)
This charming chap is definitely a future stallion prospect with his correct conformation and with such illustrious breeding - eligible for Hanoverian Licensing.
05 April - Our second foal of the season has arrived - this time, SEMPRA FB graciously obliged us with an exquisite, coloured filly at 20.45 hrs by Champion Oldenburg stallion, FURSTENBALL (Furst Heinrich x Donnerhall x Classiker)
This delightful little lady has been named FURSTENBELLE FB - this is one coloured foal with superb breeding that is simply not to be missed.
Photographs to follow.
