Dear Friends:

We've just returned home from the All Nation Cup in Aachen, Germany and what a show it was. Aachen has become a perennial favorite of mine simply because it showcases so many of the worlds breeding programs. It is a stage where some of the greatest and most successful show horses enter the international Arabian horse show world for the very first time.

I must note that we witnessed the presentation of an extremely beautiful colt by the name of M.M Nevio. Nevio is sired by the great Lorenzo El Bri and out of a Perseus El Jamaal daughter who is out of a Ludjin El Jamaal daughter out of an Ali Jamaal daughter -- as you can tell with his pedigree, he is heavily Jamaal bred and it shows through in his extremely beautiful characteristics. Nevio is already a very successful show horse being named Bronze Champion Yearling Colt at the European Champions in Verona last year (2011) and also a National Champion of Austria. Expect great things from this colt as I'm sure his most significant contribution will be as a breeding sire.

Visiting Europe this time of year is always wonderful. The pleasant fall temperatures allows us to travel around Europe visiting with our friends and clients and seeing their 2012 foal crops and being mesmerized by their seasoned show and breeding horses.

As always, we cannot visit Europe without visiting the beautiful stud farm of Dick & Francina Besseling's Bessewacht Arabians. Francina and her team put together a fabulous presentation of their "White Diamonds" and wow, was it amazing. Francina's Ibn Estasha daughters are truly so very special and the entire program has such distinctive look.

Here in North America we are preparing for the United States National Championships and setting our sights on the World Championships in Paris, France at the beginning of December. Of course, we are trying to distract ourselves from the winter months ahead that are slowly creeping up on us.

Wishing all the best to you and yours,
