Our select mare group are imported or Australian bred, from pedigrees with generations of proven international success. Our five imported mares boast outstanding pedigrees with generations of famous bloodlines on both the father and mother line! Three are approved and licensed for breeding in Germany and boast progeny that are successful at international level. Our two imported Holsteiner mares are from the first class breeding Holsteiner lines 1916 & 741, with many internationally successful progeny and success at the highest level in sport in their direct family line. The two youngest and newest imports are both maiden mares and will begin their breeding as ET mares here in Australia whilst they are prepared as ridden competition horses. Both these new imports were assessed as PRIME mares before leaving Europe.
When breeding, we carefully select the best mix of pedigrees to suit each individual mare's type and temperament, including any strengths AND weaknesses. The goal is to breed first class horses with physical and mental longevity, whilst continually bettering our breeding herd. We use imported frozen semen (IFS) from approved stallions, or chilled semen from internationally successful, approved licensed stallions. We also will choose to import in utero at times when acquiring new mares.
The stomach of mares are a treasure chests bulging with gold. - Emir Abd-el-Kader
