With the 2018 monthly APHC USA International rankings coming out at the end of the show season there is much deserved congratulations  on the APHC UK facebook page (and the individuals own sites) .  However one remark "it is very rare for a stallion located in the UK to be listed" is somewhat incorrect. 

It is such a shame that the APHC UK appears to forget the past APHC USA registered UK stallions (including the best USA imports) listed in the International rankings including :

2004 Mannog Moonriver & APHC USA Grand Champion:  5 Entries Aged Stallions: 1st Mannog Moonriver. 2nd. Private B Riker. 3rd: Amazing Blue. 4th:Mannog Moonshadow. 5th:Wa Ha Dar.  

2009 Mannog Moonshadow & Reserve USA Grand Champion:   4 colts/stallions: 1st Mels Wa Ha American Star.  1st Rustlers Private Bill.  3rd Mannog Moonshadow. 4 th  Mannog Moonriver.

2010 Mannog Zips Rio Grande & APHC USA Grand Champion & 1st FPD Halter:  3 colts/stallions: 1st Mannog Zips Rio Grande. 1st. Mannog Zips Imagine. 1st. Wa Ha Dar

2013 Mannog Zips Candy Man & APHC USA Grand Champion:  3 colts/stallion: 1st. Mannog Zips Candy Man. 1st. Peyres Sully Cortez R. 2nd Amazing Technicolour. 

The Mannog Appaloosa Stud is the only Appaloosa stud to have gained FOUR APHC USA International Stallion listings in the UK and all home bred with proven American pedigrees.   Not such a rarity then. 

The current APHC USA points system is : Rule 701.A.  "All nationally pointed open classes shall count towards national point system based on awards.  Points shall be earned according to the number of horses shown and judged in a class as follows:


#of horses        1st   2nd   3rd

2                      1/2   

3-7                   1      1/2

The Grand Champion shall receive an extra  1 pt and the Reserve Grand 1/2 point. 

Thank you Storm ALI !!

A bit breezy here and when doing the early evening  check found that Storm Ali had taken down one of our lovely ash trees. Probably over 60 years old and leaving a huge void in the landscape now. So sad to see.  Plus of course the amount of clearing we had to do the next morning (well over four days actually).  The horses just adore  ash  so they all got a few nibbles and are like piranha fish  - nothing is left but the wood.  However the majority will have to go to be burnt - not easy when this storm was then followed by over four inches of rain and the  field it fell into has to be cleared as it is the winter turn out for the mares.   Still the wood burner will be kept happy for some years yet.


the end !!
