Well, it's the end of the breeding season here in the Southern Hemisphere. And even though we had a much higher ratio of colts to fillies, I have to say I'm pretty stoked with the results. Our first foal was the first son of our treasured mare Jazz Rah Amira sired by her half brother Dunwingeri El Shaareef. Soterion LP was everything and more than what we expected, and now 8 months old, he is continuing to make us break out in goosebumps with his high quality, natural flamboyance, and exotic beauty.
Second to arrive was Lavender Park Zahara. A 7/8th Egyptian filly - the only filly for us this season - and she concluded a 7 year partnership with Jayhal Arabians in being the very best foal her mother, Jayhal Mystique (Meadow Magic x Samura) has put on the ground. Flawless conformation, gorgeous head, and the most incredible movement and balance, this filly just can't help but look amazing from every angle. WE are so excited with her future!
The third foal to arrive, was the strongly made gelding Lavender Park Meshach. He has such correct legs, and shoulders, and is built like a truck, so he's going tomake someone a very sturdy riding/performance horse in the future.
Lastly for us, and certainly not the least! Another colt, BUT! Amir El Shaareef is anything but "just another colt!" A full brother to our gorgeous Lavender Park Eternal, Amir is possibly the very best foal we have bred. A chestnut rabicano, Amir has everything. Excellent conformation, perfect shoulders, neck, broad back, SUPERB hind quarters, clean arched throat, and the most beautiful head with his parents trademark eyes and huge nostrils. It is almost impossible to fault this young man, so one would be forgiven in being SO excited - even with a season that was nearly FULL of colts! LOL!!!!
Please enjoy the photos of our babies. We are very proud of them! And please feel free to show everyone the culmination of your own season's foals!
