Mulawa Moments

Moments - great and small - that define us and create the wonder, the joy and and passion in our shared experience with the Arabian horse. 

The GOLDEN Girl | VENECIA MI

Celebrating the Mulawa-Bred Gold National Champions |  VENECIA MI The good fortune of breeding often involves the fortuitous coming together of the right people, the right horses and the right situations at exactly the right time. For the Farrell Family of Mulawa Arabian Stud, this coming together of all the right elements has been a constant theme consistently repeated in the breeding success they have now enjoyed for over four decades. An inspiring incarnation of that breeding success is VENECIA MI , the result of breeding fourth-generation Mulawa-bred sire ALLEGIANCE MI  to US import VALENTINE MI . ALLEGIANCE, who brilliantly combines the blood of invaluable foundation pillars KARMAA , AMBITION  &

MULAWA CHANCE | In Memoriam

17 November 1982 - 16 December 2015   This morning we bid farewell to our beloved MULAWA CHANCE. Born in November of 1982, CHANCE was foaled at the old Mulawa property where her sire, AMBITION, set in motion the direction and purpose of the Mulawa program. Tragically, AMBITION was lost prematurely, his legacy and influence left to his treasured daughters, with MULAWA CHANCE amongst his best and most prolific.   Not only was CHANCE the most celebrated of her sire's daughters, she was also the best produce of her esteemed dam, GROJECCA. Imported in-utero from the UK in the infancy of the Mulawa program, GROJECCA was a life-long favourite of Greg Farrell Sr. GROJECCA was in turn the dam of MULAWA THE QUEST, a consummate
