The Enduring Legacy of PERCEPTION

16 August 1991 - 04 October 2022 The eldest matron in residence at Alabama was peacefully laid to rest this morning after thirty-one glorious years of life. Although she was the last remaining member of  LM MAGICS GIFT Family still at Mulawa, her impact on the breed both in Australia and around the world continues to unfold positively and profoundly. With the closest genetic links to Mulawa’s celebrated foundation sires and dams,  PERCEPTION was the product of breed pillars and essential imports VISION (Jamil x Euni by Bandos) and LM MAGICS GIFT (Aladdinn x JF Gazella by Gay Orzel), the former from Hans Nagel’s Katarinenhof in Germany, and the latter from the Lacroix Family’s Lasma Stud in the USA.

A special thank you to Andrew Sellman and Doug Leadley for your support of this newest addition to the Orrion breeding programme! We look forward to many years of ‘dreams coming true’ at  Orrion with KLASSIC FANTASY and her descendants. Thank you, Steve & Christina, for putting your trust in this treasured mare and for collaborating

Happy Holidays 2021 | Celebrating the Spirit of the Season

The Arabian Horse continues to bring infinite reward and joy to all of as at Mulawa. As we embark on our Golden Anniversary, celebrating 50 years of involvement with and dedication to the Arabian breed, we reflect back across the decades, to the horses, the people and the programmes that inspired us with AMBITION, with VISION and an all-consuming passion for the horse.

There is so much more that unites us, ignited by our shared love for the Arabian Horse.   ~The Farrell Family & Team Mulawa

Celebrating 30 Extraordinary Years | Happy Birthday GLF APOLLO!

Since the transfer of the breeding herd to Alabama Stud in the Upper Hunter Valley late in the previous decade, the three elder statesmen of the Mulawa breeding programme have remained in residence in Sydney, blessing our lives each day with their magnificence and presence. In the last 12 months, we have bid a bittersweet farewell to both FAME MAKER R, who was laid to rest in April 2019 just shy of his 30 th birthday, and to TS AL MALIK just two months ago in January, in his 28 th year of life. The only senior sire remaining is not only the stallion whose importation launched the modern evolution of the Mulawa programme in the early 1990’s, he is the stallion who has lived longer at Mulawa than ANY other - imported, introduced,

Mulawa Open Barn Postponement | Sunday 09 Feb

Due to the significant rainfall the farm has received in the past 24 hours and the significant rainfall forecast for the next several days, the decision has been reluctantly made to postpone the Mulawa Open Barn scheduled for Sunday 09 February. Given the all too recent threat of the bushfires surrounding the Sydney area and all of coastal NSW, this abundant rain is a welcome reprieve to the many months of drought, heat and fire risk. Given the busy schedule prior to the Australian National Championship in early March, we anticipate rescheduling this Open Barn, and the educational seminar covering the topic of “ The Why, When, What & How of Masterful Show Clipping” for sometime later in March or early April.
