Frozen Semen Available

Posted on July 30, 2016 at 4:20 PM

I have a limited amount of Frozen Semen available for sale from Kracka. Be in quick before it's all sold. Kracka was the ApHANZ Super Horse three years in a row, he's gathered many trophies and ribbons over the years in competition riding, both in English and Western, he's very quiet and as an added bonus is homozygous for the Appaloosa Gene, so every foal he sires, will be Appaloosa.

2011 ApHANZ Super Horse

Posted on May 18, 2011 at 4:15 AM

I'm pleased to announce that Kracka did well at The Nationals again this year. He has attained "Super Horse for the second year in a row.

I'll have his Show Records available shortly for you to view.

I have had some enquiries about Kracka from people living a distance away from me, so I've decided to take the plunge and have him trained for A.I. This way he can sire foals as far away as the South Island if desired, with less cost than travel. I will announce this on my website once this service is available.

Graces Education

Posted on May 2, 2010 at 1:40 AM

I've been all too aware that winter is on it's way. Having concentrated on Kracka's riding for a time, I've decided to bring his daughter Grace in for some light work before winter.

Grace showed some sensitivity for a short period but soon realised she'd done it all before and accepted a rider quite readily. We've just done some gentle walking around as she is not riding fit, and she's still quite young and has a lot of maturing to do, so it's just a case of jogging her memory for now. She will get turned out again over winter to mature some more.


Kracka's Photo Shoot

Posted on April 5, 2010 at 5:35 AM

In March 2010, Petra Davidson of "Sportaloosa International" came out to get some snapshots of Kracka for the Stallion Showcase. Between the pair of us, she managed to get some really nice photo's of Kracka in his natural setting. You can see his very generous hindquarter, which is a legacy from his sire. See the Stallion page.
