Proudly on lease from our dear friends Rob and Yvonne Day, and Leon Bennett this outstanding Pure Crabbet stallion is a great ambassador for the breed with multiple AA class wins in Working Stockhorse,  and Western Pleasure. Trained by renowned Horseman Jeff Willis, Dual winner of the gruelling "Man From Snowy River Stockmans Challenge", "Snowy" has spent numerous years doing feedlot work and competing successfully in open company against Quarter Horses and Australian Stockhorses.

He has proven himself for versatility competing in Campdrafting, Western, Stockman’s Challenges, Endurance and Show. Snowy is scoring very high at campdrafts, scoring 21 for cut-outs at his first two drafts, and a total score of 82 at his second draft. He is very cowy and loves hard work, has an impeccable temperament, great intelligence, and superior trainability. He is a true athlete, energetic and quick on his feet, yet very sensible and gentle natured when handled or competing. He gives an armchair canter, and is extremely flashy with his sabino markings, huge kind eye, great natural presence and self-carriage. See 'Snow 'n' Fire' on YouTube

       (Shadowy Night x Jantasen Bandelite)
      95.66% Crabbet  SCID clear


In a quest to find Royal Domino and Banderol blood, we found Midnight Shadow many years ago, yet his owner had never considered parting with him. We are now fortunate to have been offered him once again. Shadow oozes presence with a strong crested neck, strong back and high tail-set.

(NB: photos taken on his arrival mid-winter 2009, show pic of Shadow as a 3 year-old)

A perfect combination of Bandom and Mildom, he has lovely big dark eyes, tiny ears and wide forehead, broad chest and hindquarter, short cannons and very good feet. He has his father’s extravagant movement, light as a feather yet elevated, springy and powerful. Progeny competing successfully in endurance.

Service Fee: $800 Nat. service (includes $200 non-refundable handling fee) plus vet fees, agist ($15 per week)


       b. 03/11/1984     Dk Bay  Est. 14.2hh
       (Arim x Kehilan Star Queen)


Taraka is now back at his “home” Cedarwood Lodge Arabians, to spend his twighlight years, we wish him a happy retirement. I never dreamt that the yearling colt I cut out of the “Talquah Stud Sale” advertisement in 1985 would be happily grazing outside our kitchen window some 24 years later! His lineage will live on in his precious daughter, Cedarwood Lodge Zayan. This grand old gentleman was with us a for a brief time, yet his memory will last forever. We all miss him.




       b. 09/10/1996   Bay  15.2hh
       (Wollongbar Romulus x Ejay Ngaio)

“Entity”was bred by Wayne Beasley of Charaway Arabians, Queensland.  

Entity is a Grandson of Ruberto and Chip Chase Desert Wind. He is 89.6% Crabbet, and is elegant and refined. He has height, excellent bone with short cannons, an elegant swan neck and a clean gullet, a superb front, alovely head, and eye, with masculinity and presence. He moves as a ridden horse should: with natural light impulsion, and beautiful extensions. He is a dream to handle and a thorough gentleman in the company of other horses.

He is ridden and worked both traditionally, and at liberty, and thrives on physical and mental stimulation. He commenced his endurance career in December 2005 and is proving a very competitive mount in this field. He is also showing some talent in working stockhorse classes, starting to develop a skilful stop and spin. He also enjoys liberty work, rearing on queue, and lungeing, on voice and hand signals alone.
