At 16 years of
Jewel had been prolific breeder prior to her purchase by us, with many of her foals having been championship winners. She went on to
produce five more foals, all by Chip Chase Kaiwanna, four fillies and one colt
(her only pure Crabbet foals).
Three of these daughters are still in the stud today. Lovely ladies, and very
valuable editions to our stud.
In 1987 we
were very fortunate in being able to lease the well performed Top Ten mare Dandaloo Baylanie (by the Sindh*
stallion Boyar) from Dandaloo Stud. She subsequently produced a filly by Chip
Chase Kaiwanna, Boomori Kismet (retained) and three very good stallions (also by
Kaiwanna), Dandaloo Khaalid (dec), Dandaloo Kadet (exp USA) and Boomori Kahlua, between
1988 - 1993.
We were so
impressed by the Boyar/Kaiwanna cross that we purchased Baylanie's
full-sister Dandaloo Baylina in 1988. She also bred well to Chip Chase Kaiwanna producing two colts and two fillies including
Boomori Special Edition and
the stallion Boomori Finale.
Following the death
of Chip Chase Kaiwanna in 1994, we were very kindly offered the use of the
pure Crabbet stallion Volcano by his breeder Dini Mercieca of Wyreema
Arabians for the 1995 and 1996 stud seasons.
Volcano was interestingly
bred and a relative outcross to the lines within the stud. While with us
he sired four foals, two fillies and two colts, including the very typey Boomori Hallmark from Boomori Kismet.
We were lucky to acquire the chestnut stallion Bolshoi (full-brother to the
mares Dandaloo Baylina and Dandaloo Baylanie and only pure Crabbet son of
Boyar at stud). We used him primarily over our Kaiwanna/Crown
Jewel daughters as the Kaiwanna/Boyar cross had worked so well in the
past, and we were once again very happy with the resultant foals.
For some time we
had been looking for a stallion which would provide a relative outcross to
our existing lines whilst maintaining the elegance and type which we so much
admired. In 2004 we had the opportunity to purchase the big bay Crabbet
stallion Erin Park Nelson (Crenel x Fenwick Rosanna) a lovely rich bay
foaled in 1992 and standing 15.3 hands high. He possesses correctness, good
bone, a strong short back, good length of rein and lovely fine chiselled
features for such a big horse. His first foals for us are showing great
promise, possessing elegance, excellent confirmation and size.
always been the intention of this stud to remain small, only breeding one
or two foals each year and concentrating on quality rather than quantity.
We have always strived to produce well conformed, well balanced, versatile
horses with excellent movement and temperament, and will continue to
follow these ideals.
