Reference Mares

Glenview Silver Harmony (dec.)

Our very own champion maker, Minnie founded her own little dynasty during the fifteen years that she resided with us. With quintessential pony type and character, she was a beloved family member, peerless nanny, and prolific broodmare. Already the dam of Ponies of the Year Ablue Moon’s Virtuoso and Ablue Moon Pianissimo, she found her ‘golden cross’ when bred to Ablue Moon Rising. This mating produced six exquisite foals, all Australian, East Coast, or Royal Supreme Champions. Minnie’s son, Ablue Moon’s James Blond, is already a leading sire of Australian and East Coast Champions in his own right. Here at Ablue Moon, Minnie is survived by her outstanding Australian Champion daughter Ablue Moon’s Stairway to Heaven. Sadly missed, but lovingly remembered, Minnie is buried on the farm.

La Vie En Rose (dec.)

Joining our ranks in 2007, Rose was a cherished member of our family whose huge black eyes were beyond compare.  She was the first mare ever bred to Ablue Moon Rising, and the resulting foal was the exquisite Grand & Multi-Champion palomino mare Ablue Moon’s Bed of Roses.  Rose produced four foals for us – all of them are Multi-Champions, and inherited their dam’s sweet and inquisitive temperament. Rose, whose absence will always be keenly felt, was laid peacefully to rest in late 2017, and is buried on the farm alongside her gelding boyfriend Jack and longtime paddock mate Sweetie.

Peaches n Cream

Purchased as a late yearling, Peaches spent more than a decade as one of our leading show ponies and premier broodmares. We campaigned her with great success at all levels, accruing accolades ranging from Royal Champion to Victorian State Champion to Reserve Australian Champion. A doting and affectionate mother, she produced five foals for us: Ablue Moon’s Milk n Honey, Ablue Moon’s TNT, Ablue Moon’s Break n Hearts, Ablue Moon’s Capt n America, and Ablue Moon’s Ex’s n Oh’s. All those shown are Multi-Champions, and have inherited their dam’s faultless temperament. Peaches made her way to her new home in 2018, but her legacy here is continued by her exquisite daughter Ex’s n Oh’s.

Bittersweet Symphony

Arriving at Ablue Moon in 2014, Tally was a much-loved member of our family and broodmare band, with a superb temperament and the face of an angel. She produced the elegant cremello filly Ablue Moon’s Venus de Milo and the exciting gelding Ablue Moon’s Chromeo, both sired by Ablue Moon Rising, and an exceptional stillborn colt by Ablue Moon’s James Blond.  She has found a loving home where she will be enjoyed as a part-time broodmare and saddle horse, and we have no doubt that she will delight her new family just as she has always delighted us.
