Phlyrt and Nicole

Red Bullet  We are so proud of you both!
Nicole Kinsey of Zephyr Arabians has sent us word that she and Phlyrt (Symbah x Phobia by El Bahia) completed their first 50 Mile Endurance Ride on January 10th at Warner Springs. And what a day it was! No wonder Nicole is so justifiably proud of this wonderful CMK mare she bred and trained herself. You can read the complete story of their Red Letter Day on the Zephyr Arabians website: 2004 Warner Springs 50. Thanks Nicole for sharing such good news with us!

Red Bullet  Legendary Arabians gearing up for 2004
"It's a new year and we're gearing up here at Legendary Arabians for the West Coast's Arabian/Half Arabian Sport Horse Nationals in September 2004. We plan to attend, but which horses we have there is still up in the air!!!

Aul Magic+/ has been in quarantine since September having semen frozen for overseas export and future use here in the U.S. We now have frozen semen ready to ship to South Africa, the EU approved countries, Australia and New Zealand. The semen was 'positively' tested on a mare this fall, so it's good to go!!! He'll be coming home in early February for the breeding season to begin. He's gotten a bit overweight, so first on the agenda will be getting him back in shape and under saddle again.

We also have new to the ranch an OSB Trakehner mare that will be bred to Magic this spring for an 2005 foal. We're really excited about this one. She's a beautiful black bay 17+ hand mare that was bred by Hubertus Poll and imported to the U.S. as a weanling. For those of you familiar with Trak lines, she is by Nandino and out of the well known mare Guayana, dam of at least two approved stallions.

We have only two foals due at the ranch this spring, both are purebred Arabians and should make excellent sport horse prospects. We have others for sale that are older and started under saddle, along with requests from clients whose needs we are unable to fulfill at this time. We also need some help at the ranch. Please take a look at our ads in the Help Wanted, Horses for Sale, and Horses Wanted sections of the Classified Ads.

We would love to hear from all of you or better yet, stop by if you're ever in the area. The best days to have me at the ranch are Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but you're welcome anytime."

Red Bullet  Sharon and Betsy honored as Guest Speakers
At a recent meeting of the Arabian Horse Association of San Fernando Valley, Sharon Byford-Ruth and Betsy Teeter of Legendary Arabians appeared as this AHA club's Guest Speakers on the Topic of Showing Sport Horses. Sharon writes: "There was a fair turnout (15-20 people, I believe) and all seemed interested in learning more about CMK Arabian Sport Horses and showing them in hand. Most were from the Arabian show world (vs. open showing); perhaps one or two of those people may end up showing In Hand at the Sport Horse Nationals this year. We are so proud of Aul Magic+/ for lighting the way."

Daisy Bouquet for OttoRed Bullet  Greener Pastures
I wanted to let you all know that Otto Hackel had to have his stallion Phyllis Selection (Aurab x Diens) put down this afternoon. "See" had been deteriorating all through the summer and fall. As you may all recall, "See" has had problems with his left rear leg for many years... ever since a training injury as a young stallion where his sesamoid bone was broken. This last summer and fall he has had increasing difficulty with this leg with substantial weight loss through his hips. We did what we could to keep him comfortable... special feed, Bute for pain, and heat lamps through this fall in his stall. Today he laid down and after several hours of several people trying to get him up and failing... the decision was made to put him down. A very sad day here at the ranch. We all loved the guy very much.

As you may recall, "See" was one of the last Aurab sons. "See" had a wonderfully sweet disposition and sired some wonderful performance horses. When excited by a mare, he was very regal and beautiful... dark bay with little tippy ears and a beautifully intelligent face. His stall is the first you see at the barn coming up the driveway... it will seem quite empty now. We will all greatly miss him.

Bouquet for Helen Red Bullet  Sad News to Report
I regret to inform everyone of the death of our very good friend and neighbor Helen McCoy of McCoy's Arabians in Chino (Hills), California over the weekend. She was like one of our family members and things just won't be the same without her around. All will miss her.

Red Bullet  OB Haat Lipz continues to amaze us!
Sandy Obermeyer of Obermeyer Performance Arabians  has sent us this photo of Bill Obermeyer and their home-bred mare OB Haat Lipz (Blitzen of Pico x Arribas Pride) displaying her talents as a Team Sorting horse. Now this is a mare to believe in! When Sandy is not using her for Search and Rescue duties with the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department, Bill Obermeyer jumps aboard and rides her in parades and for his play-time pal with his cowboy buddies doing Team Gate Sorting ~ work she seems to enjoy as much as her Dressage Class win at The Scottsdale Show 2001. What a good girl and outstanding representative of CMK Breeding!
