It has been a very busy spring at Kakagi Arabians! Our oldest *Nefison offspring are 4 this year and ready to show their stuff under saddle. The 2006 gelding Kievan kgi was the first to leave for training, he is now home and doing great on the trails! We are offering him for sale, but in the meantime I will continue riding and conditioning him with the tentative goal of taking him to a local endurance ride this fall.Our junior stallion Riurik kgi is currently in training with Corey James of MN and we're all excited about the potential he shows. Watch for him to hit the show ring under saddle!In foaling news, we welcomed our only foal of 2010 on Good Friday, a very well built and personable colt by *Nefison and out of our *Novator daughter Rare Sensaytion. He is a fun colt and will be quite the athlete as he matures.We also welcomed a new mare to the farm, Kioska (Kuvich x Golea de Monpelou) arrived in April and will be bred to *Nefison for 2011. She is a special addition as her dam spent her final years with us. Kioska also brings in the type of linebred Nabeg pedigree we love, through sources unique to our program, and as a big, substantial and very sweet mare will be a wonderful addition to our broodmare band!Meanwhile we said goodbye to Sentiment and Amarretta, who had been here on lease from Sport Arabians and are now on their way back home to KY. They have left behind three incredible *Nefison fillies and we are extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to lease them.We've continued with CA testing and found that MM Lada is clear while Rare Sensaytion and MM Mmist are both carriers. They are the first two carriers we've discovered in our herd and our plan is to continue breeding them to *Nefison, who is clear, and in the future to his sons.Also watch for Arlene Magid pedigree research on *Nefison which will be launched on our webpage shortly!
