While waiting for this years foals we are working on the 2019 generation
and the first mare to be in foal is Maid of Emotion D.
Sylvia has been introduced to the sadle and she seems quite cool.
We will continue the work with her as time and weather will allow.
Since the sun was shining today and Pomar was still clean from yesterday
he was on for photos again
Pomar had his first time out at the stallion presentation at Husted Arabians.
He handled clipping, washing, loading etc super good
and I am so proud of what he has become since his arrival last year

Well really not much to say at this point but for sure not a Happy New Year.
Shortly after New Year I was sick with what I thouht was just the Flu.
To make a long story short it turned out it was not the Flu
and I ended spending most my January in bed and 11 days in the hospital with breathing problems.
I am diagnosed with a desease called "Farmers Lungs"
a cronical issue and caused by some kind of allergic reaction to fungus
most likely coming from horse bedding, hay and stuff like that.
I will be in medical treatment for months
and need some time to find myself in this new situation,
learn how to deal with it in my daily life in a way that horses etc. still can be a part of it.
So, if you have been wondering why things are so quiet here,
well now you know.
Review at 2017...
In 2017 we had happy and sad moments.
We were gifted with 3 wonderful foals, Seize the Day D. , Elayda D. & D. Remarcable.
We also said hello and welcome to Pomar, a 4 year old big black stallion
sired by Kunar T out of a Pobeditel daughter.
Eluniqa D. was sold and has moved to her new home in Germany where she will have her first foal by Duval.
And speaking of Duval, in a very sad moment but also a beautiful moment he passed away on a sunny Saturday in March.
He was such a great personality and he left a great mark in my heart. There will never be one like him again.
Our 2 young musketeers D. Unexpectable Colours and D. Van Marc spent most of the summer at Husted Arabians.
Both were started under sadle and D. Van Marc was shown in Strohen and at the Danish Nationals were he became Senior Gold Champion.
At the annual DSAH Shagya Licensing we had 2 young mares attending.
Both Maid of Emotion D. and Dreamin Dido D. was licensed in grade 1B
And Dreamin Dido D. was also Champion and awarded with a Silver Medal.
The biggest moment for us in 2017 was with no doubt,
the moment where my beloved MM Sultan could claim his ELITE title
and with it came his FULL license for Shagya, Anglos & Partbreds.
We are expecting 4 foals for 2018 and are looking forward for the foaling and breeding season to start.
Happy New Year and all the best for 2018.
From all of us to all of you
MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR

DSAH Licensing this weekend
Things were not as planned but in the end a good weekend after all.
Our young stallion D. Unexpectable Colours was suppose to attend the licensing,
but unfortunately he was injured last week and for that reason not able to go.
We hope for his speedy recovery!
So the young mares Maid of Emotion D. and Dreamin Dido D. had to fill his place for him and so they did.
Both were licensed in grade 1B and Dreamin Dido D. was Champion Mare and awarded Silver Medal
Thank you to all the sponsors for the wonderful gifts
and to all who put huge efforts and a lot of work in this weekend!
See you all next year!

As much as the silence in one corner of the stable brings sadness to my face
there is a lot of activity in another corner of the stable that can only put a smile on my face.
Our little Russian related Princess is no longer without a name.
She was born in the morning on my 8 year anniversary day with Duval
who 3 days later allowed me to immotalise him with my camera in a precious moment before he passed away so unexpected and so suddenly.
In honor of Life and every precious moment in it, her name is.
Seize the Day D.
No one knows what tomorrow will bring, - or just what the next minute will bring..
With heavy heart I have to announce the sudden passing of a great stallion, Sire and true friend.
During a photo session Duval suddenly passed away today.
The sun was shining, he looked great and had fun speeding in the arena.
He picked his special moment, just him and me together.
This photo is the very last one of him and yet one of the best ever I think.
It really shows that special glimse in the eye, that special "Duval-look" and attitude
exactly how I will always remember him.
I am thankful that I got to spend 8 years with him.
He was a HUGE personality and the stable will be quiet without him,
There will never be one like him again - He was the King of Davidson Arabians and he knew it.
Rest in piece my friend, I will miss you till we will meet again some day.
Foaling season has started..
This morning at 8.20 Precious Marcia D. gave birth to a beautiful bay filly
sired by our young stallion D. Unexpectable Colours.
While waiting for our first foal we decided to start introducing Sspot Me D. to a little work.
Currently she had 7 lessions of around 20 minutes and is now introduced to
boots, sadle and bridle.
The goal is to have her carry me on her back and not much more than that,
and so far she is dealing very will with all the new things and is very giving to work with.

Review at 2016
Shortly after New Year the foal season started and we were gifted with a beautiful filly foal.
In total it should we should have had 4 foals, but unfortunately AF Escada lost her foal a couple of months before due date.
So in the end 3 healthy foals and all are sold.
Dubai Diva D. (Dubai Pasha x CAS Harmony/Simeon Sadik) whom we sold as a foal back in 2010 returned to Davidson Arabians for a short period.
She was put in dressage training with Maika a couple of months and came back for breeding in June
and was later sold in foal to D. Unexpectable Colours to a lovely new home in Austria.
Our young colts D. Checkmate and D. Jack of Sultan are also sold to new loving homes.
As usual we attended the annual stallion presentation at Husted Arabians.
SL Carrera was presented undersadle by Maika and D.
Unexpectable Colours was also presented.
Colours was also presented at the National Show.
At the Shagya Licensing we attended with both foals from Wagant and also D. Double Up.
All did well and especially the foals was very calm and unstressed during the whole day.
By the end of April SL Carrera returned home to Davidson Arabians after staying 1½ years with Maika in Northern Jutland.
In the autum he and I had a little time for dressage training and had our debut as dressage couple at the competition and Kirk Arabians.
And besides a couple of trail rides with MM Sultan, that is about it when it comes to riding in 2016.
The breeding season was rough – never before have I experienced that much trouble and I hope I never will again.
Some were hit harder than one can imagine and that hurts.
At Davidson Arabians we are expecting 3 foals in the coming season.
In 2017 we will see the first foals from our young colts D. Van Marc and D. Unexpectable Colours.
The last months it has been a bit quiet with the horses.
We live in an area where they have been building the worlds largest solar energy plant more or less next door to us and that has taken a lot of energy.
The worst part is over by now so I will be looking forward to normal conditions in our area again
and also looking forward to a breeding season with less trouble.
Happy New year and see you out there!
The website has been awful quiet the last couple of months.
The making of the Worlds biggest solar energy area just across the street has been rough lately.
The noice and the damages - especially on the fence has just taken most of my energi.
However all things come to an end - and they say the worst part is over by now
and it should be quiet in the area in the Christmas days, so I am looking forward to that.
When it comes to the horses we have a couple of injuries at the moment..
Both on the same day a couple of weeks ago.
Zeems Cheeky D. has an ugly wound from a kick - nothing serious, just big and looking ugly.
She will be okay again for sure - only it will take a couple of months or so.
SL Carrera is the other one being injured - also made in the pasture and ALL by himself...
But from looking very serious it turns out to be not that serious in the end.
I never experienced him moving away from me in pain on 3 legs when I reached for him,
and the whole right front leg was very swollen - all from the shoulder to the hoof - never seen that before either...
However some days grounded in the stable on painkillers made a huge difference, and the vet states
that probably he has torn some muscle tissue in his shoulder or elbow.
By now he is almost back to normal and he is also turned outside again living his normal life.
Hopefully the horses will stay calm for the rest of the year so we can have a nice quiet Christmas.
And time is up...
Merry Christmas to all of you,
may you all have a wonderful time in the Christmas days!
Since SL Carrera returned in April he has been quite well featured in pictures I guess
and this morning he was in front of the camera again...
I might call him the "wrong coloured" in daily life - but in winter time he is the only one with the right colour
and this morning we had rime all over and clear sky so advantage taken...
October 29th - 30rd
SL Carrera and I was attending the dressage competition at Kirk Arabians.
For me the first dressage competition in more than 25 years so I was pretty nervous LOL
However on Saturday we had a nice ride and I was quite happy with both myself and my horse
On Sunday SL Carrera was "hysteric" and definitely not fond of beeing alone in the big arena,
so nothing on Sunday worth to mention or to look at.
But we had a nice trip and I had some experience with me back home and hopefully useable later on.
This morning our young colt D. Masquerade left for his new home in Sweden.
Once again congratulations to Petra Strömberg and the best of luck for the future with this special colt.
We look forward to follow you!
My first riding pictures this year and my 3rd ride with SL Carrera since he came back home.
We have no goals and we do not follow any rehabilitation program.
We just see how much we can make of it enjoy it for as long as possible,
as we know that things most likly will fall back again like before.

After 5 months in isolation Dreamin Dido D. has now been given free in the mares pasture
starting her resocializing with the group.
She is doing good and we don´t see her lame so far
Our yearling colt D. Checkmate is back home
Thanks to Maika for taking so good care of him
In the beginning of April Dreamin Dido D. somehow injured herself in the pasture
and at that time I realized that I didn´t make a single picture of her in 3 years.
With an ugly wound in the fedlock she was not able to put weight on that front leg at all
and therefore not possible to transport her to a clinic. And well.. I also thought that
her lameness was due to the wound because it was quite deep so I just left her in her stable to heal.
After some weeks the wound had healed but she was still very lame and unable to walk and be transported.
So she was then examined at the stud by x-ray and ultrasound and we found out that the deep bending tendon
had been nearly torn and most likely she also had a fracture in the hoofbone..
Due to the non exsisting scar tissue in the tendon, - which is quite unusual -
the vet gave her more than 50% chance for recovery and she was to stay in the stable for yet some time.
For 4 months she was not outside the stable and she totally amazed me in temper
- no stress when the others were going out and she had to stay inside.
A couple of weeks ago she was given free on a SMALL paddock outside and now she is allowed a little more space
and then of cause time for a little photos! She is still suppose to stay calm and quiet and I am of cause
scared that she will blow the whole thing, but most of the time she stays calm and quiett
and so far she has not been set back after her "explosions" when she gets a little too happy with her situation.
We still have some way to go - but so far so good.. I trust that she will go all the way
and at least be able to have a happy life as the broodmare she was always meant to be.

D. Unexpecrable Colours was at his first show - The National Show.
He lift his show attitude at home so when it comes to points, it was not a big success.
However he was cool and behaving nice in the stable and had a nice overall experience I think.
In the same weekend Lisbeth Floor Bendixsen and her beautiful mare Sweet Caress D.
was attending the 40-80 cm. jumping class and was placed 2nd.
Earlier this month they were in Sweden attending the Nordic Arabian Championships in Näsbyholm.
They won The Rockie Cup 2016 - a cup consisting of both
dressage, jumping, show, classic pleasure og native costume...

Due to a busy season I have to face that I do not have the time for riding MM Sultan as planned

So I hereby re-open his book on fresh semen

Also congratulations to Skovsted OX with a filly foal born a couple of weeks ago sired by SL Carrera

Maika Wissing Nikolajsen is the owner of this foal, congratulations!
Cheeky is on her due date.. but in stead AF Escada is the one who had a foal..
Unfortunately this is around 2 months too early and probaby because of twins.. a very sad story..
How ever we have decided to have the foal tested for Herpes virus and are waiting for the result.
We lost what could have been a beautiful bay colt sired by Massimo Ibn Mirokan.
We are truly heartbroken, especially for Denise Kanbur who just lost the foal of her dreams.
AF Escada is doing okay despite the situation.

SL Carrera is back at Davidson Arabians
Special thanks to Maika for taking so good care of him.
Because of special circumstances we have interrupted our cooperation with Stald Stenheden where SL Carrera and Dubai Diva D. is stabled.
This means that SL Carrera will be returning to Davidson Arabians as soon as possible.
Unfortunately it also means that our "Dream Team" SL Carrera and Maika are no longer together as horse and rider.
However this does not mean that we stop our cooperation with Maika.
Maika will continue her work with our black treasure Dubai Diva D.
and for the future assisted by Vibeke Degn Andersen.
Vibeke is a very well respected dressage trainer.
She was trainer for the National Team in Pony Dressage for several years.

and the special situation we have with SL Carrera, he was on a 300 km. trailer ride today to meet with
a farrier in whom I have graet respect and trust.
I guess it is always a shitty job to clean up the mess after others..
So BIG thanks to Anders Michaelsen for letting us come to you on a Saturday and for wanting to see
him work under sadle after you finished with him.
You made a hell of a difference on my faith in the situation!
Anders evaluating his work
Also special thanks to Ulla for catering service and to Maika for spending another day
in the effort to optimize the chances for SL Carrera.
D. Checkmate has moved to Maikas place to be the new playmate for her gelding CA Zaro.
D. Checkmate handled all the new things quite cool, and I am proud of my little boy.
Along with D. Checkmate on the trip North was Dubai Diva D.
She is now also in dressage training with Maika Wissing Nikolajsen.
They had a fine start and I am looking forward to see what will happen during the next months.

This morning at 6am Maikas dream of a foal sired by her beloved late Wagant came true
Our Precious Marcia D. gave birth to a beautiful filly.
HUGE congratulations Maika with your Wagancia D. !!
Review at 2015...
Just like in 2014 our foaling season started in January.
Already on January 7th we were blessed with a beautiful filly sired by D. Desert Eagle out of Amazing Grace D.
She was named Yarin D. and we got the chance to enjoy her for 6 weeks before she and her mother started their journey to their new home in Iran.
The second and last foal came late in May – a bay colt sired by Bolero EM out of Zeems Cheeky D.
He was named D. Checkmate.
The breeding season also had an early start and with success.
It was with great pride and joy we were able to announce that we had the first mare in foal for 2016 by the end of February,
and in foal in first try with frozen semen from Maikas late stallion Wagant.
Semen that vets had declared non-fertile after several attempts with no success.
In May we could announce a 2nd mare in foal to Wagant and also in foal in first try.
2 more of our mares are in foal so in total we expect 4 foals for 2016,
however 3 of them are already sold.
The breeding season 2015 was big and exciting and we do not expect 2016 to be much different.
The stallion group we are able to present for 2016 is better and bigger than ever.
Again this year I would like to thank our clients and friends in DK and abroad
for the trust in our breeding program and in particular in our stallions.
Egelys Nafira, Amazing Grace D. and her filly Yarin D. , Blaze of Glory D.,
Wasaida APN & Bahieh has all traveled to new homes outside Denmark.
At the annual stallion presentation at Husteds and we presented MM Sultan,
and he was also presented at the International Show in Ikast together with our young colt D. Van Marc.
D. Van Marc was also presented at the Danish Nationals and proved his quality by being Class Winner, Junior Silver Champion and also Liberty Winner.
His younger brother D. Double Up was also introduced to the show world as he spent a couple of months in Holland with Chris Van Schalkwijk.
D. Double Up ended his season in Belgium with 89,17 points.
MM Sultan was also presented at the Shagya, Anglo & partbred licensing and was licensed for 2016.
When it comes to riding we have had a dark shadow hanging over our heads the whole year
as things did not quite work out they way we had hoped for with SL Carrera.
He has had more chances than most horses will have, and now the box with potential treatments is empty.
We can only wait and see what time and hope will bring us by now, so all fingeres crossed!
D. Desert Eagle has been working quite a lot under the sadle though.
He spent 3 months in training with Kim Andersen at the riding club in Brande
and after that he traveled to Germany to follow his fathers hoof prints doing a 30 days performance test.
At the moment we are awaiting the board of the breeding association to confirm his passing or not of the test.
We end our year with hope and positive thoughts, and just in these writing moments the foaling cams are running in the stable..
In few days our first 2016 foal will arrive, and by its arrival the circle is again at its starring point.
A new round and a new year is coming, hopefully with a successful foaling and breeding season.
We wish you all the best for 2016
December 17th & 18th
I have spent a couple of days in Germany as D. Desert Eagle has been doing a 30 days performance test for warmblood stallions.
Because the test is German and the breeding association is Danish, the board of the breeding association has to go though his results
before we know if he passed the test or not, so fingers crossed!
How ever, I am pleased with my boy, he looked good both in the stable and under the sadle.
I was visiting SL Carrera and of cause making a few pictures of him.
He looks good and has just started his rehabilitation period once more, and this time probably for the very last time.
We do hope that 2016 will be a turning point for him.
New video of Mary-Lou on the sales list
A little snow is here...
D. Van Marc
So new pictures of Duval, D. Unexpectable Colours & D. Van Marc
D. Double Up was free in the pasture together with his friend D. Jack of Sultan for the first time after a successful surgery.
They really enjoyed racing eachother again.

A couple of new pics of Sspot Me D. in her wintercoat
New horse on the sales list
Today D. Double Up was at the clinic for surgery for patella lockings
We have observed the problem on/off during the last couple of months
and in the weekend things seemed to culmimate and I was not able to bring him out of the locking.
It was the same issue on Monday morning.
Appearently this phenomenon is not unusual for youngsteres in growth and/or sports horses going from beeing
active to inactive either because of holidays or injury.
Some youngsteres will grow from it, but that didn´t seem to be the solution in our case - therefore the decicision of sugery.
The good thing is that it is NON inheritable and the prognosis is quite good
more than 90% will never have the lockings again after surgery.
So now we hope to be among the 90% and wish for speedy recovery for D. Double Up.
SL Carrera was at the clinic for check up, and unfortunately we got another set back..
We were quite positve as nothing indicated that he should be anything else than forward going,
but it appears that we haven´t reached the finish line yet.
We give it a final shot and and then we have done what ever is possible to do.
It will either fail or lead us to succes - but at least we know for sure we did what we could do
with no compromizing along the way.
Maika your persistance when it comes to SL Carrera is admirable. Thank you!
MM Sultan was also at the clinic.
Sometimes I have had the feeling that he drops a hind leg when riding and I wanted to know if
there is an issue or it is just nothing like stepping on a stone or so.
The vet found nothing at all, so that was the good news for today!
October 24th & 25th

In the middle of August D. Desert Eagle left for training under the sadle and is only home in the weekends.
Today I saw him working with his new friend Michelle, and I am very pleased with his educaltion so far.
Thanks to Michelle for the effort with the white bondages, you looked great together
MM Sultan was again consulted by Chiropractor & vet Patricia Hass Pilborg
and was clearly better than last time she was here.
Massimo Ibn Mirokan was also checked as he has been a bit on/off lame on his right front lately.
Patricia found an issue in his right elbow, so we hope the problem is solved by this.
We have AF Escada in foal to Massimo Ibn Mirokan

Another price winning weekend
MM Sultan was at the annual licensing for Shagya, Anglo & Partbreds
and he got his license so now also appoved for the 2016 season.
Thank you to Louise Pedersen for beeing my co-driver and private photographer.
As usual we entered a breeding from our licensed stallions in the lottery, so
congratulations to Sisse Holm-Thomsen, the winner of a free breeding from our late PA Nafal Ibn Sharim.
6 weeks ago SL Carrera was at the clinic and diagnosed with a tendon issue.
Today was time for a check up and we were lucky..
Things looks better and SL Carrera is now able to start a rehabilitation program once again.
We really hope that "this is it" and the last hurdle we will meet before we will be able to see SL Carrera and Maika in competitions.
Once again Maika, thank you for all the time and effort you put into him.
MM Sultan was consulted by an equine chiropractor today.
A few weeks ago I was very happy and content with his work under the sadle, but lately things have been going the wrong way.
He had some issues in his back and shoulder that may relate to his "not so nice" behaviour.
It seemed as he responded well to the treatment so I really hope that this can make a difference for him.
Will try to ride him again next week.
August 1st & 2nd
D. Van Marc was at the National Show in DK and things went over the moon
He won the liberty class and was also class winner in the class for 2 year old colts
and more than that - he was named JUNIOR SILVER CHAMPION!!
But the very best of it is that D. Van Marc is 2nd genereation of my breeding program with Russian blood as base point,
and there has been no one involved in his results other than me.
For that I allow myself to be proud :-)
In Koksijde, Belgium at Int. B-Show, his younger brother D. Double Up was in the ring with Chris Van Schalkwijk
They too ended the show season in a good way - D. Double Up got 89,17 points in a tough class
Thanks to Chris Van Schalkwijk, CNC Arabians for doing a great job with our young boy.
Evening work out with MM Sultan
He is doing great at the moment and things are realy going forward in more than one way
I was visiting Skovsted OX to see this little beautiful black filly sired by Duval
New pictures of Bahieh - and also a short video of her on the sales list
D. Double Up entered the show ring again, this time in Strohen in Germany. He got 37,42 points.
Now he will come home and have some time for gowing and then we see what the future will bring for this young colt.
Thanks to Chris Van Schalkwijk, CNC Arabians, Holland for giving him a nice intro to the show world on such a short time,
and also a special thanks to my friend Jani Pedersen, for sending me photos of him before the end of the day!
Another mare confirmed in foal in first try with frozen semen!
And once again it is frozen semen from Wagant!
This also means that once again we are able to congratulate the owner of the coming foal Maika Vissing Nikolajsen.
She did so many trys at the clinic to make her dream of a foal from her beloved Wagant come true, but it never happened,
but appearently we can make miracles at Davidson Arabians and Maika is now expecting nothing less than 2 foals sired by her beloved Wagant.
I am so happy for you Maika!
Our young D. Double Up had his debut in the show ring today in Brecht shown by Chris Van Schalkwijk.
He got 37,67 points
We welcome Bahieh our new mare.
Despite beeing new she is still familiar as she is sired by my former western companion D. Shan´n Jan Memory.
She is here on the purpose of sale and I am looking forward to get to know her.
If she is like her father, she will be quite irresistible.
Please feel free to contact me for further information.
SL Carrera was at check up at the clinic
The injure in the right front is now recovered but unfurtunately we have an issue on the right hind
in the attactment of the outer bending tendon.
this means 6 weeks with no training wearing a stress relieving shoe and afterwards check at the clinic again.
This is SO frustrating when you feel you do all you can and yet it keeps coming..
We still intend to do what we can and once again we have to be paitient for some time..
Thanks Maika for beeing so alert on him!
We recieved some endurence news
Fairytaile by Duval sired by Duval had her debut in a 40 km. class
well prepared and ridden by her owner Kira C.W. Leuenhagen, Denmark
AF Palmass sired by Massimo Ibn Mirokan came successful through a 88 km class in today in Holland

For the first time in quite some years I showed the horses myself and both did well
Especially I am happy and proud of our young colt D. Van Marc - he was the best Danish horse in his class and got a 3rd place

A lovely chestnut/bay colt sired by Bolero EM.
We named him D. Checkmate.
I have just started riding MM Sultan again, and it is hard to believe..
but so far he is behaving much nicer than earlier - I hope this positive improvement will stay.
So we dared to go out in the open and were able to get some nice photos.
Safe travels to Blaze of Glory D. & Wasaida APN.
Congratulations to Mr. Al Shammari inKuwait on the purchase of these lovely young mares.
Special thanks to my good friend Chris Van Schalkwijk, CNC Arabians for assisting the sale.
I was visiting Skovsted OX seeing a couple of very nice SL Carrera daughters, Maylee og Serengeti.
They look great Birgitte, and thanks for entrusting me with your Queen Yamena for a sibling
Today we confirmed Elunah Monpelou in foal to MM Sultan.
To us this is an exciting combination, both as the foal will be straight Russian, but
also it is the combination of the first two straight Russians I fell in love with.
I met MM Sultan for the first time on the day I met & bought Elunah.
Now after nearly 8 years their blood will be combined.
Further more, by beeing sired by MM Sultan, grandsired by Massimo Ibn Mirokan and great grandsired by Duval,
this foal will combine all the Straight Russian stallions we have at stud and have great trust in.
Indeed this will be a special foal this will be in many ways
A great day for Davidson Arabians & for MM Sultan as well
Today at we had the Shagya/Anglo judge team visiting us for prelicensing.
MM Sultan is approved for Shagya & Anglo mares for the 2015 season

We gave him the best opportunities and with Maikas dedication and passion to his rehabilatation, we now see a positive result.
May the future stay bright for them

Today was the day for SL Carreras check up at the clinic after 2 months since last visit and treatment for his injure.
SL Carrera has responded well to the treatment, and in combination
with the effort from Maika and Niels to keep him as quite and calm as possible it paid off today,
and SL Carrera was declared ready for rehabilitation!!!
The next 6-8 weeks he will follow a special training program and then hopefully we can say fully recovered.
To optimize what ever we can SL Carrera will stay with Maika in this period.
