Peaches n Cream



  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.

Peaches now retires to the broodmare paddock to concentrate on her current pregnancy.    She is expecting a September foal by Ablue Moon Rising, and we cannot wait to see this precious baby.   We anticipate that it will be available for purchase to an approved home.

  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:

   Champion  Arabian Pony Mare
 

   

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

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:
