|Endurance news 2008
Once the Quilty was announced to be in Queensland later in 2008, James & Zeehan Zamir (aka "Wilbur") have been putting more effort into training & competing. After becoming open status horse & rider in 2007, they've placed TOP 5 heavyweight in all rides since - 2 in 2007 & 3 in 2008!! Assistance & advice from Vance & Ouida Ratapu has been invaluable - a big "thank you" to them!
NOTE: Liz took photos of numerous competitors here - copies should be available for sale at the State Championships 18th August.
It is expected that Naadem will do his first training ride in September 2007.
|Breeding news 2008
Zeehan Bint Nabila had a RIPPER chestnut filly foal sired by the straight Egyptian stallion Alshinfarrahh (PVA Sonbali* x Daffiinah*). The filly has been named Zuhra Z'Alshimmah - please visit their webpage! www.zuhra-arabians.com/mares
Zsarina Zoya will be bred for the first time in the 2008 season. And it is hoped that the Naavah daughter Naavena will be leased from Aulda Arabians & bred for a very special foal....... WATCH THIS SPACE!!
Zuhraan Catch A Dream (aka "Sunni", pictured at left), leased from Breilla Kennels,has just had a litter of TEN big puppies on the 13th September 2008!! The sire Zelgren Dark N Stormy is a rare solid black Pointer, so a number of the puppies are the rare solid-coloured. The solid liver puppy bitch Zuhraan Dark N Dreamy (Kayo) has been retained in partnership with Breilla Kennels.
Unfortunately the 4 cows did not go back in calf again to the same Limosine bull 'Tryon'......

Our second son "Isaac" was born 18th September 2006 - very healthy & happy baby. Big brother Chris LOVES him to bits (most of the time!) Can't believe Isaac will be 1 year old soon!!
Chris celebrated his 3rd birthday in June 2007 with a party & everyone had lots of fun.
|James became a shareholder & director of Optimed Pty Ltd in July 2006 - and is run off his feet more than ever. This has delayed our house-building plans yet again!! Oh well..... hopefully not for TOO much longer.....|
