Broodmare's breeding status:

In foal:No
Selling with a foal at foot:No

Qahira - I bred this mare and also owned her dam.
She is 16hh with loads of bone and size about her. A quality type of mare who has been to some good stallions.
Easy to catch and handle, always goes into foal on first service.
She loves attention, currently fed twice a day and rugged.
Was NOT SERVED last year.
Qahira is by Holy Roman Emperor , who is proving to be a great broodmare sire.
This mare is for lease as I have no intention of selling her. You are welcome to put her to whatever stallion you choose, and if you need it, agistment is available at my property after she is covered.
Qahira never raced due to injury to her knee as a foal.
Located in Hunter Valley near Maitland NSW.
