Destino DH travels to his new home

Destino17 Destino DH left for his new home in Milton early this morning. He arrived around mid day, and his new owner says he is settled and that he is beautiful, which is music to an anxious breeder’s ears! We’re looking forward to hearing about his future adventures.

Stud Tour

Desert Heritage Arabians and Jym-Aud Arabians co-hosted the NZ Arab Horse Breeders Society AGM Stud Tour on the 11th May. Horses from Caitlin Dalton’s Riverchant Arabians were also presented – it was a two hour trip for Caitlin and we were grateful to her for adding her beautiful mares to the display. We were very lucky to have perfect Canterbury Autumn weather – crisp and sunny, considering the preceding month was wet, wet, wet!

Thirty-five or more people visited, more than we expected and we appreciated the interest and support. Fortunately Fiona and her daughter Anita are accomplished caterers and managed to feed the masses! Clayton Bazeley lead the horses out, with help from Freya. Deb Bamber and Carmen Tuite also helped us get horses ready as well as lending moral support.  Thank you everyone.

NZ Arab Horse Breeders Society (Inc) AGM

Jym-Aud Arabians and Desert Heritage Arabians are hosting the NZ Arab Horse Breeders Society AGM in Ashburton. Horses from Riverchant Arabians will also be presented. The AGM is on Saturday 10th May at 1pm, Hotel Ashburton, followed by a social dinner and drinks; and a stud tour will be held on Sunday 11th May at 9am. Everyone (including non-members!) is welcome – please contact the NZAHBS office for further details and booking forms.

We will have a number of horses for sale, so this is a good opportunity for potential buyers to look at several animals in one day. We have a weanling purebred colt/gelding to mature over 15hh, a 2 yo Anglo to mature at 15.2hh-16hh (shown successfully), two Welsh/Arab pony fillies to mature at approx. 13.2hh (one extensively and successfully shown), a purebred broodmare approx. 15hh (a dam of champions), one ridden purebred mare 14.3-15hh (multi-champion). In addition, breeding stock and youngstock (not for sale) will be presented in a casual manner. It will be a fun weekend, mingling with like-minded Arabian enthusiasts.

Melika has been sold

Melika&Kayla1Our darling CA Melika Silver Fire has been sold. She is the dam of Fiera DH. Melika is one of the friendliest horses we’ve ever had, and she has proven to be a fine broodmare just like her own dam -true to the “Silver” family line. Melika has been bred to Shaheen Al Saba for her new owner.

Dessy is in foal!

Dessy1We have had Euralea Fire N Desire, or ‘Dessy’, on lease for the past couple of years. She is the dam of Destino DH, and is back in foal to Shaheen Al Saba. This 2014 foal will be co-owned with her owner Lee Cox – we are hoping it will be a “pink” one!
