Farewell to the Iconic Arabian Ambassador | ALLEGIANT MI

04 September 2011 – 06 May 2024 The Arabian community lost one of its greatest ambassadors with the untimely passing of ALLEGIANT MI  due to colic complications. The prize progeny of his beloved dam MI ANGEL  (by TS Al Malik), ALLEGIANT was a marquee member of the venerated family of ‘Angels’ and uber-athletes that descend from the cornerstone dam family of Mulawa foundation mare M ANGELIQUE  (Vision x Abanda by Banderol).       His arrival in the early Spring of 2011 almost thirteen years ago ushered in an unprecedented wave of change, acclaim and achievement for Mulawa and the Arabian breed in Australia.

Farewell | OWENDALE LEMON TWIST

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

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,
