2015 HOYS MINIATURE BREEDER OF THE YEAR

A record 6 horses from DONABI UK in the Horse of the Year Show Final

A record 4 of them sired by super producing stallion UNO TOM THUMB including 3 of his daughters :-
DONABI UK UNO COLOUR FAIRY
DONABI UK UNO LALIQUE
DONABI UK UNO SIMPLY MAGICAL

and his son
DONABI UK UNO CARTIER

also qualified was my beautiful silver bay filly
DONABI UK STAR SPANGLED ELEGANCE
and
my incredible broodmare
FALLEN ASH EAGLES FIRST LOVE
who herself set a record by being the dam of 2 of the qualifiers in the same season
Donabi UK Uno Lalique (with her first foal at foot) and Donabi UK Uno Cartier

Then, incredibly, FIRST LOVE (with her 2015 filly foal at foot) WON the HOYS qualifier at the BMHS Breed Championship Show to join them in the Final
AN UNPRECEDENTED, PHENOMENAL FEAT BY A BROODMARE, and still only 8 years old !


HOYS Qualifier wins started with Ellie (Donabi UK Star Spangled Elegance) at Staffs County, shown by Tom Miller who has an amazing affinity with this filly and shows her always to her best advantage.

Maxine and Claudia Foulkes qualified Donabi UK Uno Colour Fairy at Three Counties Show - and went on to WIN the Mares/Geldings Final at Horse of the Year Show, so huge congratulations to them.

Donabi UK Uno Simply Magical was next, winning at the Kent County Show, and taking the Championship - once again sympathetically shown by Tom Miller.

My beautiful Donabi UK Uno Lalique (with her first foal at foot) WON at the New Forest Show.

Donabi UK Uno Cartier, full brother to Lalique, WON and Res Champion at Stoneleigh. Owned and shown by his proud owner Katy Smith.

Broodmare supreme - Fallen Ash Eagles First Love, dam of the above 2, WON at the BMHS Breed Championship Show skilfully shown for me by Hattie Miller, with Jo Burgess leading First Love's foal, Donabi UK Uno's Love Story.

On top of the excitement of the HOYS Final itself on the 7th October at the NEC, Birmingham, my daughter Donna and I had the honour of attending the HOYS Breeder Awards Presentation on Thursday evening, generously sponsored by the Kellythorpe Stud, where I was presented with a Certificate and engraved tumbler in presentation box for HOYS MINIATURE HORSE BREEDER OF THE YEAR. An award of which I am very proud, with thanks to all my horses and handlers that made it possible, but particularly of course to UNO TOM THUMB

That was the show ring, but here at home wonderful things were happening too, with 4 fabulous foals born, three of them fillies ! (2016 will definitely be a 'colt' year !!)

Tiffany and MM foaled within 16 hours of each other. MM had a tiny, minimal black pinto colt, Donabi UK Uno DiMaggio so much like 'Uno', Tiffany quickly followed with a silver bay pinto filly, Donabi UK Eagles First Edition, this time by Fallen Ash Farms Handsome Eagle, a correct, strong, horsey silver bay pinto filly with beautiful limbs, and the easy, laid back temperament of all Tiff's babies.

Lala (Lalique) had her first foal on the due date of 18th May, an ultra refined, leggy, black pinto filly with a beautiful head, by 'Eagle', named Donabi UK Eagles Filigree.

First Love foaled on 13th June, almost four and a half weeks early, a compact bay pinto filly with huge eyes in an exquisite head, Donabi UK Uno's Love Story, which I have kept to run on and show in the future.
