Australia has lost another of its most beautiful mares - Why is it that we always to lose the good one's so early??
Pearsons Vogue, an exotic bay mare owned by Don & Carmel Rowley of Pearsons View Arabians, was taken away suddenly.
This mare as her name suggests was extremely beautiful, if there was a horse magazine like the fashion Magazine "Vogue" the mare would have definately been a front cover item.
Vogue was to me an inspiration, you could look at her all day, your eyes never grew tired of her beauty, you wanted to, (or should I say) needed to touch her, she had a presence of royality. Her sire Odenuel (also deceased) was a favourite stallion of mine, a Jamil grandson. Her dam, Pearsons Sarchi, has bred beauty after beauty, herself being a Plakat/Sankt Georg RSI granddaughter.
Vogue only left three progeny here in Australia before being taken from us, 1 Stallion, and 2 fillies. I am sure these three will certainly contribute well to the historical fabric of arabian breeding.
If you would to see more of this lovely mare please visit the Pearsons View Arabians website on this site under Farms - there is a tribute page for Vogue.
There have been a lot of postings lately of show results, (don't get me wrong, showing is a great way to promote our horses and I love seeing all the results and photos) but I just wanted to share that sometimes you don't have to be a show winner to influence our breeding decisions. Pearsons Vogue has done this with our egyptian related breeding program.
I am extremely privaleged to have known Vogue and we are fortunate to have her daughter, Pearsons Valeeah (x Simeon Stav) and her full brother Pearsons Shakayne in our breeding progam. These lines breed true quality down through the generations.
If anyone else would like to share other "Arabian Inspirations" that haven't graced our show rings but have had a profound effect on their lives, it would be lovely to hear from you.
Attached is a casual photo of the beautiful "Pearsons Vogue". (even casually in the paddock the royal quality is very evident)
