June 2017 has seen the end of a sucessful Foal Show campaign with Osory Boi George, we only attended two shows, the Yarra Valley RPG Foal Show and the Gippsland & Peninsula RPG Foal Show. At both shows Georgie won his Welsh Mountain Pony Colt class in both rings, then at Yarra Valley he got a Champion & Reserve Champion Welsh Mountain Pony. At the Gippsland & Peninsula RPG Foal show he won Champion Welsh Mountain Pony in both rings. I am extremely happy with Georgie's results and how he handled the whole experience and can't wait to get him out again later in the year.
Also June saw me making a definite decision on breeding I-Candy later in the year. This gorgeous mare is to be covered (using Frozen Semen) by Fadi Al Shaqab, and I can't wait for this mating and the resultant foal in 2018.

March 2017 saw some very exciting news for Hollyford Park, Hollyford Park Gianna now owned by Tanya Hosking was to compete at the 2017 Australian Arabian Championships in Sydney. Gianna and Tanya had an exceptional show coming away with the follow titles;
** 2017 Australian National Champion Senior Arabian Pony Exhibit **
** Champion Senior Arabian Derivative shown by a Non Professional **
To say that I am proud of this mare as her breeder is an understatement and I wish Tanya all the best for the future with Hollyford Park Gianna.
February 2017 sees several changes at Hollyford Park. Firstly Woranora Phoenix was sold to S.A in December 2016, however in recent weeks Phoenix had an unfortunate paddock accident and was PTS. We hopefully have two more foals due by him later in the year, and hopefully he will also produce two foals for Shellee Arter's of El Shaddai Park.
This season sees three foals on the ground for Hollyford Park, two Chestnut Arabian Pony/Part Welsh Colts by Karanga Sea Eagle and out of mother and daughter purebred arabian mares, Phylecia KEI and Fantazja KEI. Also we have one Welsh A Black Buckskin Filly by Woranora Phoenix (Dec) and out of Karanga Ariana.
We have several new additions at Hollyford Park, the first is the arrival of the stunning Black Arabian Riding Pony/Part Welsh Mare, Ascot Glamorous Silk. We want to thank Belinda Brookshaw for entrusting us with this beautiful girl.
Also joining the stud is Tarlea She's So Fine, a gorgeous Bay Purebred Arabian mare by Bluegrass Centrefold. Thankyou Nadine Frampton for entrusting us with this mare. She will be covered later in the year by Karanga Sea Eagle.
The third and final purchase by the stud is a stunning Welsh A weanling colt, who will eventually be the studs resident Welsh A stallion. Osory Boi George has come down from Mudgee NSW and will debut in the next couple of months at this seasons foal shows. His sire is a UK import Betwy's Boy George, and his dam is Osory Parisian. We would like to sincerely thank Osory Stud for entrusting us with this stunning little man. We look forward to what the future holds for him.
