What are some of the highlights and successful moments involving the Arabian horse for you in 2015?
Conway Arabians has been breeding Arabian and Half-Arabian horses for several years, and we are honored to be included with this great group of people for APAHA Breeder of the Year.
There is a very wonderful, unique and hard to describe feeling, when you watch a horse win at the Nationals, or any show for that matter, that we were involved in before its inception. We are a very hands on farm, and are involved in the selection of the horses, the collection, breeding, and foaling of every horse, born on our farm, so we have a huge role in the success and outcome of our horses we breed.
Our favorite time is mare watch and foaling. The hours can be long, but it is the hope and expectation of that next foal, that keeps us trying year after year to breed better horses than we did the year before.
We have been ranked top Breeders at the MN Medallion Stallion Show, Arabian English Performance Association and U.S and Canadian Nationals and are proud of our accomplishments.
If someone were to describe you, what would they say about you?
People have told us often what a great “team” we both are together and how cool it is, what we are doing in the Arabian horse world. We know this, we love the Arabian horse, and together we have a “vision” of where we want Conway Arabians to be and what we want to do to further the breed. Cheers to the 2016 foaling season!
