MULAWA CHIEF SIRE

Bred by Joyce DeWitt & Laura Cleaves | USA
Imported 1996

US & Canadian National Champion Futurity Stallion FAME MAKER R has been a star on the Mulawa stallion roster since his arrival in 1996. Long admired by the Farrells since they had first seen him a two-year old when under the management of friend and mentor Gene Reichardt, FAME MAKER was purchased by fellow Australian David Westbrook of Nihal Arabians at the Arabco Auction during the Scottsdale Show. Greg & Julie were thrilled to know that FAME MAKER would be on his way to Australia, and generously offered their assistance in standing and promoting the stallion on home turf. A partnership was formed, one that created far reaching positive results for FAME MAKER and likewise for the Mulawa both in the show ring and in the breeding program. 

FAME MAKER introduced new, as well as strengthened, essential elements in the Mulawa program – length of neck, strength of coupling, superior balance and capable athleticism through FAME VF, RAFFON, BAY-ABI AND BAY-EL-BEY, along with the extremely upright, elegant forehand, superb topline, masculine magnificence and commanding show ring presence of EL SHAKLAN & BEY SHAH. The added touch of Egyptian refinement and Spanish elegance through EL SHAKLAN, made FAME MAKER the perfect choice for the daughters of AMBITION, ARRIVAL, VISION & GLF APOLLO in residence at Mulawa during his initial years at stud.

While busy in the breeding barn his very first season, FAME MAKER embarked on an unprecedented show season of success. Not since WARRANTY had a stallion of such awe inspiring charisma and commanding confidence graced the national competition ring – he dominated every serious contender on every occasion, garnering championships with ease and universal adulation at the most prestigious shows in the country, including the East Coast Championships, Victorian Classic Show & and the Australian (National) Championships. A new "King of the Ring" had been crowned Down Under – the extraordinary show ring exploits of FAME MAKER are still remembered with genuine admiration and incredulity to present day. 

As a sire, FAME MAKER has proven his worth as not only a source of extreme type and attitude, but as the perfect complement to the inherent functionality and athleticism of the Mulawa herd. FAME MAKER get have excelled in the halter show ring – his son FLAME MAKER (out of the GLF APOLLO daughter KARA MIA MI) became the first and only horse in the history of the Australian Championships to be named an undefeated Australian Champion on four occasions. The FAME MAKER get have also excelled under saddle, especially in the second generation. The FAME MAKER daughters have proven themselves as dams of exceptional merit, especially twice Australian Reserve Champion Mare FAMES HARMONY. 

The trademark FAME MAKER attributes - harmonious proportion & balance, exuberant tail carriage and commanding show ring charsima - have become an essential part of the Mulawa breeding program, with his legacy certain to be felt for generations to come.
