Peaches n Cream

   2015 Australian National Arabian Championships

Our golden beauty Peaches n Cream stepped out one last time at the Aussies, showing in style at her last appearance.  Grumpy about her return to the ring, and several months in foal, Peaches still looked the best she ever has, and moved out very well in the second largest open derivative halter class of the show.  Thanks to Andrew Thorek (who owns Peaches' son Ablue Moon's TNT) for the beautiful plaits and quartermarks.  Conditioned, prepared and shown by us, our beautiful girl was awarded:

2013  Melbourne Summer Royal
Our much-admired beauty concluded her show season at the Royal.    Otherwise undefeated in her Arabian Pony mare classes this season, she was awarded third place in her open halter class.   We were very pleased to win the Best Presented Arabian Pony class, particularly given that it was our very first  attempt at plaits!

Peaches finishes the 2012/13 season as Yarra Valley Champion, SEAHAC Champion, Victorian State Champion, Classic Winner & Arabian Summer Show Champion - all from only five outings.    Conditioned and prepared at home, we are  proud of her results.

  2013  Arabian Summer Show
     We took our golden girl along to the inaugural Arabian Summer Show, held in conjunction with the Melbourne Summer Royal.   Competing in only one class, Peaches was awarded:

2013 Victorian Arabian  Horse Classic

The very glamorous Peaches attended the Classic at Geelong Showgrounds.   Many thanks to Andrew Thorek of Elmslea Park, who owns Peaches' son Ablue Moon's TNT, for his assistance with this lovely lady, who was awarded:
1st Arabian Pony Mare

2012  Victorian Arabian Championships
Our beautiful Peaches had a  very long day,  spending around seven hours in the float to attend the Vic Champs at Tatura.   We made the decision not to stay for Supreme, as it would have seen us arrive home well after midnight.   She once again  behaved very well and garnered  plenty of admiration on her way to being awarded:

2012  Arabian Extravaganza

Our glorious mare Peaches n Cream attended the A-Class Yarra Valley and South Coast Arabian Extravaganza  with good results.    The amateur owner classes were very well-supported, with a line of ten impeccably presented females in Peaches' class.   Thank you to those who approached us  to comment  on our  lovely girl - she never fails to  win a few hearts!    As always, she showed beautifully  and was awarded:

Champion Arabian Pony  Mare (Yarra Valley)
Champion Arabian Pony Mare (South Coast)
Top Five (3rd) Amateur Owner Derivative  Mare or Filly  (Yarra Valley)      


2012 Barastoc Horse of the Year

We entered Peaches for Barastoc on  the basis that we would wean her colt in mid-January, giving us at least four weeks to condition and prepare her.   Due to her colt's injury, Peaches ended up being pulled from the paddock only twelve days before the show.   Her foal was weaned, but she then decided to 'adopt' one of the other weanlings, and was sneakily feeding her new baby through the fence (and her rug) until two days prior to the show!   In spite of this, she looked lovely and was  Reserve to the eventual HOTY.   Quite an achievement for a mare who was unwashed, unrugged and with a foal at foot twelve days prior.  
Peaches was awarded:

Reserve Champion Led Palomino Mare
2nd Led Palomino Mare under 14.2hh

2011 Royal Melbourne Horse Show

We took our glorious mare Peaches n Cream to what was only the third show of her life.   She was beautifully behaved and looked superb.   We were truly  thrilled when Peaches was awarded:
