This is Kate, a very special mare. Rose Cottage's owner Kate McDermott says:

"She's a yearling in this picture, bred by a very close friend, Gabriel Roddy, out of his piebald mare Gipsy and our stallion Malin Warrior. He named her Kate, after me. He was so proud of her; she was his first filly in four years. We acquired her after Gabriel's death in June 2006".
