Remembering Chesapeake

Chesapeake, 2001-2021

Barb first laid eyes on Chesapeake 17 years ago, when Anke Magnussen sent Barb a video of a young, 3-year-old Holsteiner stallion prospect in Germany. Anke told Barb that she had to add him to the Wild Turkey lineup.

After viewing the video, Barb fell in love with him. He was a big, bright bay with a huge blaze and beautiful, elastic movement.

Shortly thereafter, Chesapeake came to the US. He competed under Mandy Porter for several years and was retired in 2011 due to an injury. Barb ultimately decided to geld him so he could retire out with friends and not have to lead the lonely life of a stallion. He lived on the farm with his retirement buddies for the last 10 years and was so happy.

The decision was made to humanely put him down after lymphomas were discovered. Chesapeake lives on in his offspring, especially his son WT Ca-Pow!, who is also ridden by Mandy. Rest in peace, Chesapeake. You are missed!
