*Zing is unshown due to the scarring he suffered as a result of his broken nose and jaw.*
With a huge following, both within Australia and abroad, Zing is recognised as one of the most beautiful palomino Arabian bred stallions in the world. His exotic type, correct conformation, mesmerising movement and sensational colour make him unique, and he epitomises the Arabian Pony.
The only Arabian Pony son of the fabulous *S K Shakla Khan, Zing is also Khan’s only entire dilute son, and the only entire Arabian Pony grandson of the illustrious Sanadik El Shaklan. The breed-defining beauty and charisma of Khan and Sanadik, as well as that of their legendary forefather El Shaklan, have left their unmistakable stamp on their glorious golden descendant.
Zing’s dam, Kim-Dande Stormgirl, is sired by the now-deceased Cherrington Sir Jason, and is from a family of Royal, East Coast and Australian Champions. A mare of outstanding presence and quality, Stormgirl’s progeny include Royal and National Champions, and Zing is her only entire son.Zing was special from the moment of his birth, and he and his progeny are the subject of constant interest locally and internationally. Every year, we field countless enquiries from those wishing to breed to Zing, or to acquire one of his precious progeny. While he is no longer available to outside mares, the response to his single season at limited public stud was phenomenal, with all breedings sold at a rapid rate.
A vision in gold and ivory, he represents the ultimate of the Arabian dream for many. Unshown due to scarring from his broken nose and jaw, of a relatively young age, and with limited progeny, he has nonetheless made an indelible mark on the show and breeding scene, and his singular merit, reputation and pedigree have seen him featured in the Australian Arabian Horse News, Arabian Studs & Stallions, Pony Magazine Australia, The Arab Mag (South Africa), and the Facebook page of Arabian Select (USA).
Not only beautiful, but also intelligent, Zing is a pleasure to have on the farm. His commanding presence is equalled by his abiding affection for people (especially ‘his person’ Dee), and he never fails to present himself for pats and admiration. At liberty or on the lead, he is respectful, but nevertheless possesses a healthy sense of his own importance. With both mares and foals, his gentlemanly manners are beyond reproach, and he oversees the farm from the comfort of his paddocks.
Perhaps most importantly of all, Zing is proving himself as a consistent sire of exquisite, correct and trainable progeny who are excelling at the highest levels. With only fifteen surviving registered progeny to his name, twelve of which have commenced their show careers, they have accrued a host of accolades which include Australian Championships, East Coast Championships, Barastoc Horse of the Year, Grand, Supreme, State, AA-class, A-class and Multi-Championship titles, and we look forward to their future achievements.
We have been extremely fortunate we welcome four superb ‘Zing’ progeny in 2017: three coloured fillies and one coloured colt. As always, Zing has stamped them with his quality and presence, and we look forward to watching their futures unfold. We also congratulate the very excited new owners of Buttercelli and Heaven’s D’or on their precious new additions – welcome to the Ablue Moon Rising family!
