In Memoriam

Honouring those horses who have given the best of themselves to our breed, to our lives and to a lasting legacy...


11 November 1997 - 22 July 2023 One of the most cherished horses at Mulawa was laid to rest on Saturday. OWENDALE LEMON TWIST, beloved throughout the equine community as simply ‘TWISTER’, enjoyed his final afternoon on a wonderfully warm and sunny winter day surrounded by those who loved him most. Purchased in 2005 for a young Kate Farrell (then 10 years old), TWISTER was already a highly accomplished show horse at the highest level of open competition in Australia at eight years of age. With Kate in the saddle, TWISTER began competing at Arabian events, first as an Arabian Riding Pony, and later as an Arabian Pony, accruing eight Australian National Championships in just two years. In successive years, TWISTER

The Enduring Legacy of PERCEPTION

16 August 1991 - 04 October 2022 The eldest matron in residence at Alabama was peacefully laid to rest this morning after thirty-one glorious years of life. Although she was the last remaining member of  LM MAGICS GIFT Family still at Mulawa, her impact on the breed both in Australia and around the world continues to unfold positively and profoundly.
