Audacious Announcement

It is with mixed emotions that we announce the breeding retirement of our stallion patriarch, Audacious ps.

While his fertility remains excellent, we have been transparent about a back fetlock issue he has struggled with over the last year that has made it difficult to jump the phantom safely when being collected. We were hopeful that the issue was getting better when we reopened his book on May 2nd. But the issue worsened again, and in the last few days it has become clear that we cannot continue to collect him without worsening the problem

The health and well-being of Audacious – and all our horses here at the farm – is our number one priority in every decision… every fork in the road of this journey as breeders. Audacious is now twenty-four years old, and our steadfast mission is that he remains healthy, happy, and comfortable for the remainder of his life with us. It is from this place that we have decided to retire him from breeding.

Audacious holds an extraordinarily special place in our hearts here at Varian Arabians. Sheila handpicked him as a 12-year-old stallion, rescuing him from near obscurity. She believed in him, and was taken by his kind spirit, charming charisma and beautiful type. Soon after we launched his Facebook page in 2014, people all around the world knew his name and was just as charmed as we were. Audacious embodies the inner and outer beauty of what all Arabian stallions should be, and it is this unspoken language that has spoken to the hearts of so many people.

Audacious ps arrived at Varian Arabians as a name that was virtually unknown; he retires now a name that his household in the global Arabian horse community.

And just as so many great stallions before him did, Audacious ps will now retire as one of the Varian Arabians greats in a long line of historic names that include Jullyen El Jamaal, Desperado V, Maclintock V, Huckleberry Bey V, and Bay El Bey. Audacious will remain in the same stall he has called home since his arrival to Varian Arabians, with a stall window that looks out onto the mare & foal pasture. And he will enjoy daily hand-walking to graze & bask in the sunshine; no horse is more deserving.

Thank you, Audacious, for infusing Varian Arabians with your cheerfulness every single day. Enjoy your retirement… and lots of carrots in your feed tub.

Thoughts From Sheila...

"Audacious presents himself in an especially appealing way to me. He is extremely charismatic with huge black eyes, a lovely, expressive face, long well-hinged neck, short back, snow-white color, and a tail carriage that is truly exceptional. With all of Audacious’ showy attitude, one won’t be able find a sweeter or kinder stallion. With brief under-saddle training at the age of ten years with Ron Copple, Audacious took to training as though he was a three year old.

We have been looking for a stallion to breed back into the *Jullyen El Jamaal daughters as well as the Desperado V, Maclintock V and Bravado Bey V daughters for five years, and I am thrilled to have finally found a stallion that could live up to the requirements of Varian Arabians.... Beautiful, with excellent conformation, athletic capabilities and a mind that accepts saddle training.

Simply put, he makes my heart happy. I'd encourage you to watch his tribute video below for his full story." ~ Sheila

Audacious ps - Testimonials

I don't consider myself an authority but I do know what I like. What struck me was that Audacious was the oldest one in the ring and yet he entered like a MUCH younger stallion with loads of exuberance! He was a masculine stallion that couldn't be mistaken for a mare. His neck was up, tail over back and a gorgeous trot! He demonstrated such excitement to be there and he was in it to win! Jeff Schall did a beautiful job handling Audacious while he strutted his stuff!! Once I got past the electric energy he brought, it was incredible to see the details such as his big beautiful eyes, tiny tippy ears, well set neck, short back and smooth length of hip. His quality was obvious. Then I saw his son, Chippendale V. I had to have a breeding! I visited Varian Arabians later that year and saw more of his foals. I bought the breeding that day. I haven't used it until now, I needed the time to be right. I cannot wait until 2016!!

My first Audacious baby (colt) arrived on March 18th.   He is bay and, so far, looks to stay bay with two hind socks and wonderful facial markings.   I am absolutely thrilled with this colt -- pretty, pretty face; great ears; long neck; carries his tail at half-mast even in the stall so looks like he will move.  Refinement and stretch.   Helen is one of my best mares and produced the Region 16 Champion Sweeps filly of 2 years ago by Valentino.   This baby is even better!   I had to choose which mare to nominate for the Region 12 Spotlight auction breeding and I chose Koweta Allelujah.   We'll see, but perhaps it should have been this one.  He can show in the regular Signature class in any event. I'll let you know when the other one comes -- due around April 10.

We are absolutely thrilled to have our Dreamcatcher SMF daugher in foal to Audacious ps.
He really epitomizes what we were looking for in a stallion with his short coupling, great
movement, and classic type. Not to mention impeccable breeding and charisma to burn. What
more could you want? Huge thank you's to Sheila Varian fo rmaking this stallion available for
breeding.

Oh, Sheila, it makes my heart sing that you're getting Audacious back out 
there! I'll be watching via computer on Friday and cheering him on.  I'm 
tearing up as I write this. Fans of these precious bloodlines thank you. So, 
win or not win...hooooorah!
