Mulawa Moments

Moments - great and small - that define us and create the wonder, the joy and and passion in our shared experience with the Arabian horse. 

Celebrating 30 Extraordinary Years | Happy Birthday GLF APOLLO!

Since the transfer of the breeding herd to Alabama Stud in the Upper Hunter Valley late in the previous decade, the three elder statesmen of the Mulawa breeding programme have remained in residence in Sydney, blessing our lives each day with their magnificence and presence. In the last 12 months, we have bid a bittersweet farewell to both FAME MAKER R, who was laid to rest in April 2019 just shy of his 30 th birthday, and to TS AL MALIK just two months ago in January, in his 28 th year of life. The only senior sire remaining is not only the stallion whose importation launched the modern evolution of the Mulawa programme in the early 1990’s, he is the stallion who has lived longer at Mulawa than ANY other - imported, introduced,

Farewell TS AL MALIK | 09 December 1992 – 15 January 2020

It is with tremendous sorrow that we share with the global Arabian Community the passing of  TS AL MALIK (Hello Barich ELS x BF Tiffany Select by BF Rageymazon).

Bred in Brazil by Toni Salloum, MALIK was blessed with a unique combination of Spanish, Gainey, Raffles, Polish and Egyptian bloodlines, the infusion of which into the Mulawa programme has reaped infinite reward since the arrival of his first foal,
