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

Happy Holidays from Team Mulawa

Wishing All the Good KARMAA of the Holiday Season. From All of Us - All the Best for a Joyous Holiday Season and a Rewarding 2016... The Farrell Family & Team Mulawa

Six generations of MULAWA CHANCE champion descendants now influence breeding programs around the world. At Mulawa, her dam family continues to rank as one of the most influential, consistently producing Arabians of world-class quality that excel in the all areas of equine endeavour. The story of MULAWA CHANCE was recently featured in The Arabian Magazine, courtesy of editor Samantha
