For over 30 years we have had Arabian blood in our stables, initially
we started out with part bred Arabians but in the early 70’s
bought our first purebred;
a filly named Emucha. This filly (bred by the Scheerder family),
brought us so much pleasure that we decided to concentrate more on
We went looking for horses which we thought fit to start a breeding
program. After many visits to Arabian stud farms all around Europe we
bought three mares.
Dafirka (Aatik x Dabrana), Mirre (Aatik x Mielka) and Mirres daughter
Miraffa (by Mustaffa) found a new home at our
“Moontjeshof”. Our interest and enthusiasm for the
breed continued to grow, as did the number of purebreds in our stables.
With the addition of Aïcha (Saoud x Adaja) and Sybille (Little
Star x Basileia) our broodmare band was completed. We believed that
with those mares we had a sound basis for our breeding program; they
represented everything we value in an Arabian horse: TYPE, QUALITY,
NOBILITY and a WONDERFUL CHARACTER.
To achieve our goal we bred our mares to carefully selected top
quality, stallions like Nimb (by Muscat), Nartan (by Pomeranets)
Abdullah (by Patron) and the Aswan sons Kapron, Plakat, Mir and Marsh.
Now, many years later, our broodmare band consists of straight Russian
and Russian related mares, daughters of renowned stallions like Abakan,
Gomel, Balaton, Kais, Abdullah, Mangal, Komplekt, Amal and Abdul.
Looking over these mares are our three stallions: Kais, Patom and
Abdul. Our breeding program is dedicated to the horse of beauty
combined with performance and
a top pedigree. Top pedigree, for us, doesn’t simply mean
the parents were successful in show, it means that the ancestors of our
horses are of proven quality generation after generation.
Our favourite time is when we’re at home among our horses and
We're also breeders of long haired German shepherd dogs!
