During the finals of the UAE National Arabian Horse Championships the Michałów-bred PISTORIA (Gazal Al Shaqab - Palmira/Monogramm) won the senior mare gold medal, earlier winning her class and scoring (together with two other mares) the highest marks among females: 93,33 pts. A class was also won by EXPRESSJA TV (El Omari - El Medina/Gazal Al Shaqab), sold during the 2nd Winter Arabian Horse Sale in December of last year at Michałów Stud. It is also worth noting that the show included as many as 755 entries.

The mare Gaskonia has passed away at the stud. This beautifully coloured, densely flea-bitten daughter of Probat would have turned 31 years old in six days. The 2006 Polish National Show has gone down in history as a "family affair", because not only was Gaskonia crowned Polish National Senior Champion Mare (at the age of 19!) and Best in Show, but the titles of Polish National Senior Champion and Reserve Champion Stallion went to... her sons: Gaspar (by Emigrant) and Grafik (by Eukaliptus). Gaspar is also a Polish National Junior Champion and Best in Show, as well as a champion from the shows in Warsaw and Bełżyce. Grafik is also a Polish National Senior Champion Stallion, though prior to this victory he had to "settle" for the reserve as many as four times. Apart from that he can also boast champion titles from the shows in Warsaw, Poznań, Falborek and Bełżyce, as well as a European Reserve Championship, a Top Five from Aachen and twice World Top Ten. Beside Grafik and Gaspar Gaskonia has produced only two more foals (Gaskończyk by Menes and Garsoniera by Wojsław), but her role at the stud was invaluable, as she was a regular foster dam for orphaned foals.

The list of sires for the 2018 breeding season offered by Michałów Stud is now available.

List of sires for 2018

The first foal of the 2018 crop in Michałów was born today - it is a filly by El Omari and out of the mare Formiss (2013, Esparto - Formia/Gazal Al Shaqab).

During the International King Abdulaziz Arabian Horse Center Championship, which took place in Riyadh during 13-15th of December, our NORMA (Gazal Al Shaqab – Nina/Monogramm) won the senior mare silver medal. She received 93 pts from the judges, including 3x20 for type and 2x20 for movement.

More than half a million euro is the final result of the 2nd Winter Arabian Horse Sale, which took place yesterday, on Saturday 9th of December at Michałów Stud. 36 horses were sold. The highest sold horse was the 14 year old grey Laranda, daughter of Michałów's Ekstern, purchased for 80 thousand euro. Clients from many countries bought horses at Michałów: Israel, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, UAE, Romania, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and of course Poland. Before the bdding began, the guests witnesses a wonderful stallion parade. The star of the show was this year's World Senior Silver Champion Stallion, the bay Equator, which returned to Poland from a 2 year lease. "We are very happy with the result", says president of Michałów Stud, Maciej Paweł Grzechnik. "We are happy that a numerous group of buyers accepted out invitation. As many as 50 people paid the deposit. A positive reaction from the clients is definitely the result of an intensive promotion over the last year. It turns out that the adverse attitude toward Arabian horse studs, which we have been observing in some media, did not impact neither the turnout, nor the auction's results".
