Our Foundation mare, TA Mirabelle (US) with her
filly foal, VA Maymunah
We are the Downes family (Walter, Liz, Mark and
Margaritha) and we breed and show pure Polish Arabian horses.
We have ten Arabians, at present and my 73 year old mother-in-law
has a 32" miniature Shetland mare. We are based in Old Leake,
We were fortunate this year with our foaling, as
we had three fillies - VA Milotkha (Pilot x TA Minuette), VA
Maymunah (*Kordelas (PL) x TA Mirabelle (US)) and VA Etelka (US)
(Expo (PL) x Etrea (PL)). Two are based on the Stud, although
VA Milotkha has been sold and will be moving to her new home in
Leicestershire in February, and one in Texas USA, from a leased
mare, who will be arriving at the Stud towards the end of the year.
As we lost our veteran, Ferzons Lace (US) (Ferzon x Silver Lace) in
July, our Foundation mare's filly - VA Maymunah - is being retained.
