A stallion, very dear to us, has passed away in Poland on March 4th at the age of 31. BALON (Gwarny - Ballada x Partner) was on lease to Slängsboda, Blommeröd and Mill Hill in Sweden during 1986 - 1988. He was standing at Slängsboda 1987 and 1988 and was named 1987 Swedish National Champion Stallion in tough competition.
Balon represented fire and passion, but also gentleness and kindness. Memories of him "helping" the mares to clean the newborn foals will always be treasured.
Among over 100 offspring he is leaving behind the sons FALK (out of Philippa), FETISCH (out of Philippa) and KULIG (out of Kawalkada) used for breeding and ELLADA (out of Emigracja), Polish National Champion Mare, Polish National Reserv Champion Filly och Polish National Reserv Champion Mare, exported from Poland to the Middle East.
We have DNA-tested four horses for Cebrellar Abiotrophy. AIHNOA (Czarnolas-Algorada x Celebes), BOLA (Gazal Al Shaqab - Bogdanka x Europejczyk), MYRICA (El Amin - Mystawa x Pohaniec) and EXHINOWA (Fynd - Exhina x Caribbean) and all were found CA clear (N/N)!
