Merceedes’ dam the anglo mare Warrawee Shee’s Afire (Flame) from our fabulous Adronica was exported to New Zealand and probably the news is travelling around there also via her owner Sacha Rowson.  Flame has foaled a lovely colt foal in NZ by Sacha’s Trakener stallion.

The big moving Anglo filly Gleneagles Cicciolina owned by John Findlay made her debut at the Diamond Showcase under saddle and was Champion Ridden Anglo – later to be discovered she had been prepared and ridden with a broken rib due to a kick by another horse when she was being broken to saddle.  Unfortunately she will be out of action for a season to recover.

Carlos is his biggest fan” (apart from Airlie and her Sue-Ellen Lovett of course), and  “Öur boy is of a very very high standard, so willing to learn, trainable and sensible.”  Wow Airlie – can’t wait to hear news as he progresses.  His dam the wonderful Warrawee Amoree will join Airlie who also owns the matriach Warrawee Roxana.  Amoree has the most wonderful Arabian warmblood colt at foot by Warrawee Deecor who will remain at Warrawee.

Sandra’s words –“Yes, Pat, our little Aussie Anglo has held his own amongst the German  Warmbloods IN Germany and is now officially a Grand-Prix-Placed Dressage Horse!”  During the prize giving ceremony Uwe said that Peri was so excited during the prize giving ceremony, he could feel his little heart beat beneath his boots and while all the othe rhorses were bouncing and leaping around, Peri just stood there like a rock and took it all in.  Perelin had not competed for over a year since November 2007 when he won the World Dressage Challenge in KL Malaysia.

The fabulous Anglo baby Warrawee Dreem Maker was sold to Melissa Wray in South Australia and we hope to see him out and about soon.  Melissa reported “Just a quick update on “Archie”, he went for his first visit to the beach.  I was unsure how he would react but there was nothing to worry about as he was an angel.  The other horses we went with all took off and he just walked with me and was not worried about them not being around at all.  He LOVED the water he was the only horse who would go in! All the other girls could not believe how fantastic he was even with the waves coming in quite quickly.  We even had people stopping to take photos of him!”   A tribute to you Melissa on your handling of him.

Warrawee Dazzle Mee with Louisa Giekie won her ridden class at the Goulburn Valley A Class Show, and Helene Jennings with Warrawee Marquee also – congratulations.
