We welcome our first foal for the 2014 season a beautiful colt sired by MF Aryan El Thessa out of Gaisha Girl. A very
strapping boy born with attitude and a real look at me presence, he commands your attention. Bronco is very
true to his pedigree showing wonderful type, movement, attitude, a lovely dished face with large deep brown eyes.
He is everything we expected from this cross - he is a full sibling to the beautiful filly Gai'Zelle SA.
The second foal born was the highly anticiapted baby of the wonderful producing mare Orabanda Harlan Fash'n
aka Punky. She never fails to amaze us with blessing us with the most delightful bay colt stamped with her wonderful
eyes and expression. This gorgeous boy is sired by Echos of Marwan (imp US)
Sammy as he is know at home has stolen many hearts already with his glorious sweet nature. Like his sisters before
him, he shows wonderful Arabian type something that we strive for in our Part Arabian breeding program.

Beautiful large eyes, shapely neck and a nice mover, she is everything we hoped for with this mating.
The Queensland Gala Show held in May at the beautiful facility at Caboolture started with Shatana Heirs'n'Graces
trotting up a storm in the Partbred Arabian classes. Gracie won her class of 2 and 3 year old fillies and then went on to
take the title of Champion Part Arabian under Judge Lenia Perroy of Brazil.
Our next contender for the Gala show was our 2 year old purebred filly Marwans Fortune KP strutting her stuff
to win her age group and also win Champion Intermediate Filly title under Lenita
Next on the show calendar for the girls was the Queensland State Titles - The 2014 Qld Challenge Show
Again Shatana Heirs'n'Graces was first in the ring on the Saturday under Judge Maria Ferroroni of Italy
Grace stormed into the ring winning her 2-3 year old filly class and then coming back to win the
Champion Part Arabian Female. She also won Champion Derivative with 50% or more Arabian blood.
With a couple of hours to spare and a nice cool off in the stables Gracie once again returned to center ring full
of snort to take the ultimate Supreme Champion Female Derivative of the show award.
What makes this win even more special was Gracie was Supreme the year before - so proud of our Grace.
Sunday morning at the challenge show with Marwans Fortune ready to take her turn in center ring to impress
Judge Maria Ferroroni. In her usual style she trotted in with style and showing beautifully to win a tough class
of 2 year old fillies. On entering the ring again for the championship she again did her thing and showed her
heart out to win Champion Intermediate filly against some classy fillies. Then again back to the stables for a cool
off and break with anticiaption of the Supreme being awarded later in the day.
