2005 Sales List
A Herd-to-Go

One of our most exciting prospects is to help a
new breeder
set up a
herd of his or her own,
from the
finest Caspians available.
That is exactly what we propose to do for either one or two breeders in 2005,
~~ the Finest Caspian Horses in the World ~~

The Story
Originally, Louise Firouz in Iran chose the Best wild and domestic Caspian-type horses that she could find. She test bred them to prove that they would be superior as foundation horses for this wonderful breed. She chose the Best of those to send out into the world.

The wise original breeders in England, Australia and New Zealand chose the Best to continue the lines, while holding genetic diversity, and solidifying structure and type.

Then, two different sets of Americans went out to choose and buy the Best available to them from each area of the world. They went to England, both Eastern and Western Australia, New Zealand and added a touch from Belgium as well. They bought and imported nearly 200 horses with an eye for excellent structure, type and genetic diversity again.

Through the Best of Luck, we were able to hand pick the Best of those imports to add to our own imported stock. After 8 years of breeding, we have taken it back down from nearly 250 to less than 100 of the cream of the crop from every corner of the world, now including both domestic and abroad.

And so, we can pass that opportunity on to one or, at the most, two breeders in 2005 with the insight to appreciate this sort of opportunity. We are ready to offer stallions that were never on the market before, mares that simply were not for sale.

Every filly born in 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003 was sold, most before birth. But we quit marketing Caspians in August 2003 and have managed to keep our fillies from last year as well as those to come this spring.

~~This is how it works ~~

Sale Price is $100,000

For this you get:
One Senior Stallion

One of our Not-For-Sale Mares
We have twelve that were taken off the market for ourselves:
* Bytham Dortunca, a Shabdiz daughter and mother of so many winning offspring
* Cheleken Tamatua, alway the first to be noticed in any pasture, her three children are each better than the last
* Costessa Kalita, the "other" Shabdiz daughter available, either is a priceless addition
* Lanhill Khandee, imported from England before her famous father was finally brought over, she was our dream from the beginning
* Marida Azar, a full sister, three years younger, to Marida Dadan, pronounced by Louise to be the ideal Caspian
* Meye, bred in Belgium by Louise Firouz's daughter out of two Iranian exports. You can't get closer to foundation than that
* Tandara Lydian, tall and athleticly built, she is a nearly black daughter of the original Amu Daria
* Tandara Mihrab, the best of the best of Tandara, check out her colts
* Woodmagic Mina, shows why we have based much of our breeding program on Zebedee. She should be crossed with the Shabdiz sons. * Kristull Pearl of the Night, black daughter of the current High Selling Mare in the breed, Marida Jannat
* Kristull Tadanna, flaxen maned chestnut with chrome sired by the illustrious Marida Dadan and out of Tamatua above. A stellar pedigree

Many of these mares are in foal. All of them can be bred back to our stallions for 2006, giving you the most diverse genetics possible to start you own top Caspian breeding program.

Two fillies from 2004 or 2005. I will gather a list of those already on the ground, or choose from those born this year, whose mother is still with us.

One trained gelding for display.
* Henden Bhalla and
* Texana's Jacob already have experience in the public. Or, as an added bonus, we have gelded our very first foal,
* Kristull Jewel of Darius, who spent two years on display at the Memphis Zoo and is a child's dream pony with mane past his elbows and a temperament to die for.

In summary, to start your herd for $100,000, you get Three Breeding Stallions, Five Super Mares, Two Up-and-Coming Fillies, One Trained Display Gelding, and from Five to Ten Foals in 2005 and 2006 depending on the mares chosen by a variety of stallions.
