APRIL MERIDIAN
(Turfwood Royal Flush X Radiance Eliza Babe)
1996 flaxen chestnut mare, 15.2


Mera is Liza's firstborn, and was all the more special because Liza lost her 1995 foal early in the pregnancy. Clearing up a uterine infection resulted in Mera, who is everything we'd dreamed of- big, a lovely mover, and female! The late Turfwood Royal Flush (Clement X Tarranne DeBoyd), Mera's sire, was a lovely, gentle and typy Morgan stallion. We used him for beginner lessons when he was in dressage training here in 1989. Royal was also a distinguished sire, producing the World Champion mare Ponderosa's Replica and the New England Regional Western Pleasure Champion, Jazz Flavours, as well as many other notable show and family horses.

Mera is now owned by CeAnn Shipley of Mythic Morgans in Boyds, MD. She had her first foal, a filly named Mythic Lasair, in 2004.
