Profile:

A return to roots – the family which originated from Janów Podlaski, lending along the way its potential to the Kurozwęki breeding program, has made its way back to its maternal stud and is thriving liking never before. The solid genetic pool of the Polish “old-type” Arabian and prolificacy of the mare GAZELLA II, established by generations of careful matings, has been spiced up with show dazzler EKSTERN to obtain a modern Arabian individual built upon traditional foundations. This was more than achieved in Walpurgia – as small refined head, large liquid eyes, neatly shaped ears, an arched neck, level topline, well-rounded barrel, highly vascular dark skin, harmonious structure, correct built of limbs and sweeping, purposeful movement with an engaging overall charisma. These traits were also stamped by EKSTERN onto Walpurgia’s full siblings and received recognition on the show arena – with WOŁOGDA scoring a class win at the Białka Spring Show & and a class Top Three at the Polish Nationals and WANDALIN placing in the class Top Three at the Białka Spring Show. Not owing everything to EKSTERN, their dam WANILIA has also produced a Białka Spring Show class Top Three filly WATRA by METROPOLIS NA. WANILIA’s extraordinary producing abilities come from the creme de la creme of Kurozwęki’s breeding program – her granddam WIORSTA, a Gold Medalist and Reserve International Show Champion at an exhibition in Stockholm and Reserve International Show Champion in Blommeröd, undispu­tedly one of the best daughters of BANAT. WIORSTA’s show career had to be shelved due to her numerous obligations in the breeding barn, with quantity not ruling out quality. Her descendants include racing greats: WHISKI (Arabian Produce – Janów Podlaski St. & Kabaret St. winner), WIATKA (Oaks St. winner), WŁODARZ (a Piechur St. winner; currently a sire at 
a private stud) and successful show contenders such as WASA – Białka Spring Show Reserve Champion Filly. The inquiring breeder, venturing further down the dam line, will come to the mare GAZELLA II, whose daughters produced vital cornerstones of the breed, including ELEGANTKA – dam of WIELKI SZLEM, MAKATA – dam of WITRAŻ and TARASZCZA – dam of NEGATIW. This acclaimed heritage has been further honed with refinement courtesy of EKSTERN, the undefeated King of the Ring and horse show supreme. His commanding charisma and irresistible charm are gifts of both legacy sire MONOGRAMM, whose influence on Polish breeding has been nothing short of extraordinary and Michałów’s world renowned “E” dam line whose significant members include EMANACJA, EMIGRACJA, EL DORADA, EMIGRANTKA, EMANDA, EMANOR, EMI­GRANT just to name a few. Breeders looking for a young broodmare with many prolific years ahead and potential confirmed by past generations need not look further, as Walpurgia promises to be a dam of immense value in all areas of endeavor.
