Well it has been an exciting period of time since our last update.
The A Class Goulburn Valley Show 14/15 October 2006 - I took three horses - my much loved purebred mare Warrawee Naadia (Arabian Park Banner/Warrawee Naadiq) to this show to endeavour to qualify her for the forthcoming Australian Championships in Victoria 2008. She won her class which was very gratifying as she had had limited preparation thanks to Rebecca Lewin for showing her for me.
Also Warrawee La Veeda yearling Anglo filly by Bandomol from Adronica ASB who won her Class and went Reserve Champion Anglo female not bad for her first outing.

Sandra is really looking forward to continuing the careers of both these wonderful horses in her new environment and we look forward to her news as time goes by. The horses will be accommodated at Putrajaya Equestrian Park where the Malaysian Government has spent many millions of dollars to build one of the biggest and finest Equestrian Centers in SEA.

A good time was had by all on the trip to the United States of America in February. A group of 12 from Australia led by Annette Vickery who thank goodness had been before and led us very capably. The Scottsdale Show was a fabulous event and we saw some amazing horses and handlers followed on by stud tours most memorable to my mind Om El Arab and Jade Creek.
The group spent the first couple of days on arrival at Los Angeles where we visited Universal Studios and Santa Monica Pier, before heading off to the Scottsdale Show at Phoenix, Arizona. We spent 7 days there and then headed off to Las Vegas for a couple of days and nights (attending a Celine Dion show on the final night she was absolutely fabulous). Some of the group headed off to the Grand Canyon during this time also.
Following the Celine Dion show which only 5 of the group attended, we headed off to Santa Barbara traveling all night to catch up with the rest of the group, arriving at 5 a.m. the next morning. After a couple of nights in Santa Barbara we headed up to San Francisco and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there Alcatraz, China Town, Cable tram rides, Harbour tours and Markets.
On leaving San Francisco we headed off to Cambria for one night, then visited Intara Arabians,, where we saw some lovely horses including the stallions Dakar El Jamaal and his son Mazkarade, and some of their offspring.
Then we headed off down to San Diego where we visited Old Town San Diego and Tijuana in Mexico lots of shopping done at this time. When we left there we headed back to Los Angeles and Disneyland which was very enjoyable with lots of photos taken for the grandchildren. Before heading off home again at the end of the three weeks holiday, cramming lots of purchases into extra cases for the trip home. We all arrived home very tired but having had a lovely time with new friends made on the trip.
We arrived back a couple of days before the commencement of the Australian Championships would have loved to attend but much catching up to be done at the Stud.
Great news though of Warrawee Veeana, owned by Natasha Whiteman achieving Australian Champion Arabian Warmblood Yearling filly capably shown by Richard Sharman. The decision was unanimous, the filly scoring 10s on all three judges' cards.
The Australian Champion yearling Anglo class was won by the Warrawee S'preem filly Naaman Flaunt It. This incredibly beautiful filly was a credit to her owners/breeders Naaman Stud. Congratulations Naaman Stud.

The Warrawee Grandee son Gleaneagles Giorgio was Reserve Australian Champion Partbred gelding 2/3 years fabulous achievement to this youngster in a large class of 12 entries whose dam is a clydesdale/thoroughbred cross mare. John Findlay was a very excited owner flying up from Melbourne to view the class for the day.
Late March saw us saying goodbye to the beautiful stallion Trystan Bobbi Dazzlah who is now settled into his new home at Macquarie Park Arabians at The Oaks, New South Wales. We wish Julie Curry all the best with him and we are sure she will have wonderful foals by him to be proud of. It was our wish that as we are getting older -Bobbi be settled into a new home where his bloodlines can be utilized and he can hopefully spend the rest of his career. We will be watching with much interest how he progresses. Warrawee retains some of his female offspring which we are very proud of.
