Last Sunday, 7th March, ESPADRILLA (Monogramm x Emanacja / Eukaliptus) celebrated her 24th birthday and yesterday her stable friend, the chestnut mare EMOCJA (Monogramm x Emigracja / Palas), who lives in the next stall box in stable number 1, celebrated her 26th birthday. ESPADRILLA and EMOCJA are two of the three remaining daughters of the epochal stallion Monogramm (Negatraz x Monogramma / Knippel) which was brought to the Michałów State Stud by director and breeder Ignacy Jaworowski.
The first ESPADRILLA’S foal was Esmirna by the stallion Werbum (Wojsław x Werda / Piechur), which grew into an extremely female mare, and above all an excellent dam, giving two daughters by the stallion El Nabila B (Kubinec – 218 Elf Layla Walayla B / Assad) – Eskarina and Elihara and a daughter by the stallion Pegasus (Gazal Al Shaqab – Pepesza / Eukaliptus), Esmora. Esmirna was sold at the Pride of Poland Auction in 2012 and was purchased by Halsdon Arabians from Great Britain. Particularly noteworthy is the bay daughter of ESPADRILLIA by the stallion Om El Shahmaan, well known from the show rings, Emandilla, which has, among many, the titles of the “Top Five” of the European Senior Mares Championship, Prague (2020), the “Top Five” of the Polish Senior Mares Championship, Janów Podlaski (2015, 2020), “Top Ten” of the World Senior Mares Championship, Paris (2017), Junior Spring Show Reserve Champion Mare, Białka (2012), Second Polish Junior Reserve Champion Mare, Janów Podlaski (2012), “Top Five ”of the European Junior Mares Championship, Moorsele (2012),“ Top Ten ”of the World Junior Championship, Paris (2012). We have also in our stud two more daughters of ESPADRILLA, Espana by QR Marc, whose daughter Espenita by Morion (Kahil Al Shaqab – Mesalina / Ekstern) will conquer the show rings this year, and Eskariolla by Vitorio TO, which gave us several weeks ago a promising filly by the stallion Chimeryk (Eryks x Chimera / Emigrant).
The chestnut EMOCJA is known especially as the mother of Ejrene by Gazal Al Shaqab, which achieved the highest price at the Pride of Poland 2012. She was bougt by Ajman Stud from UAE for amount of 440 thousands EURO. She left in our stud her daughter by stallion Eden C, Editha. We also have EMOCJA’S daughter by semantic Ekstern (Monogramm – Ernestyna / Piechur) – gray EDITORIA. We have great breeding hopes connected with her. There is also at our stud the last daughter of EMOCJA by stallion Emerald J, which made her debut as a dam.
We cultivate such days at the stud. It is the great honor for us that we can be with mares whose contribution to the Arabian breeding programme is so enormous. Each opportunity to look into their eyes and pat them on the neck is appreciated and we hope that they will be with us for a long time!
Due to our custom ESPADRILLA and EMOCJA got birthday cake, which tested well… especially in EMOCJA’S point of view!
Happy Birthday, ESPADRILLA! Happy Birthday, EMOCJA!
