Martilla Barabas is our home bred Holsteiner and is a descendent of the first Warmblood imported to Australia, Flaneur. His Thoroughbred lines go back to Precipitation, Grey Sovereign and Bay Ronald (through Beau Fils). These are all sort after lines for show jumping and eventing.
Because of his brilliant temperament we were able to compete at Adult Riding Club, where we were never unplaced, with dressage scores of 65-75%.
After 2yrs of nothing but stud duties, Barabas was brought back into work for the summer, (Dec’06-March 07) droveing cattle. With little feed in the paddocks we took to the roads with our cows, and as l new he would Barabas was perfectly behave. It was like he had never had any time out at all.
He passes his generous nature and trainability on to all his foals and as an added bonus he is throwing plenty of height as well. Our 15.2 hh mare is producing foals that mature 16+ hh and our 16hh mare is producing foals 17hh+. See our progeny page for pictures.
The other bonus is colour. Out of 13 solid coloured mares he has produced 10 dilutes.
Barabas was hurt in the Black Saturday Feb'7 2009 bush fires. Read his story on the news page
