Due to Covid 19 many horse shows have stopped so the Appaloosa Horse Club (UK) held a series of photo/video classes superbly organised by Paula Cooper.  This show series had three  Championship series : Spring, Autumn, Winter with various classes of photos and videos.  All information can be found on APHC UK  facebook page.

Mannog Zips Imagine  Born 2009 (Mannog Moonriver x Im Steel A Zip) , owned by Auriol in Hampshire submitted some lovely photos for the judges.

He was awarded APHC UK Most Colourful "other" Champion  and also APHC UK Wild (entries for APHC UK/USA and non Appaloosas) Male Appaloosa Reserve Champion of Champion .  "Ozzie" has always done well in the show ring having been Supreme Champion at an APHC UK Southern Show and in 2011 was  awarded an APHC USA International Top Ten Award for FPD (Foundation Designate Pedigree.)   From foal to adult - how his colour has changed. Many congratulations to Auriol.

Mannog Roobee Tuesday 1996 - 2021

We are sad to report that one of our "first born" Mannog Roobee Tuesday (Rubicund TB x Lizzie of Larchmont) has very sadly  had to be euthanised.  Her owner said that along with getting very stiff with age she developed a large lump on her jaw which the vets thought was likely to be a tumour.  She was in pain and struggling so the kindest, but hardest, decision was to euthanise her.  It is never an easy decision to make but we know that Sonia always did the very best for Roobee.


Roobee was sold to Tresaison stud as a brood mare, and then passed onto Trewindsor stud, again as a brood mare.  We lost contact until Sonia contacted us (via our prefix MANNOG) to say she was with her .  When purchased Sonia did not realise Roobee was in foal again and eventually Roobee produced a stunning colt foal  - sire unknown.  No longer now a brood mare (thank goodness)  Roobee enjoyed life as a happy, although excitable at times, hacker.  She kept everyone amused with her antics yet gave Sonia many years of enjoyment.

RIP Roobee and thank you Sonia for giving her such a lovely life in her final years.
