Destinys Serenity

 

 

Destinys SerentiySerenity is by Acres Destiny the number 1 leading campdraft sire in Australia and out of arguably one the best campdraft mares in Australia – Oaks Serene. Serene’s achievements include:

  • Two-time Champion at the World Championship Campdraft,
    Sydney Show
  • ABCRA Open Horse of the Year
  • Two-time Northern Zone ABCRA Open Horse
  • Winner of 80 campdrafts

Acres is definitely a big reason why we purchased Serenity as we have several mares by him and feel that he produces exactly what we are after – natural cow, looks and temperament. Time and time again he produces horses that are winning in all circles and that are the complete package. But probably the main reason is his dam Serene. We are big believers in a very strong mare line and with Serene not only does she bring in much sought after genetics but also has the performance to back it up. We have had a number of top competitors in the industry come up and tell us that Serene was one of the best mares that they have seen.

To match his great depth of breeding is a great conformation. He is built a bit like a sports car, he is very compact with an incredible turn of pace. He is like a kelpie dog when on cattle – its just so natural for him, he just seems to know what to do without having to be trained. You cant teach a horse that. He is also very eye catching. As much as looks don’t make a horse go any better in drafting, most people would prefer to ride something that looks good and it also means that they can be used as show horses, making them multipurpose.

He has great markings which we hope crossed over plainer mares will produce progeny that will have a bit of style. But most of all it is his temperament that we like. We have small children and have always said if we were to own a stallion he would have to be really quiet. Serenity is just so easy to get on with, even as a young colt he hardly makes a noise when away competing and is really good with our kids. Nothing seems to worry him, which we are hoping he will pass this no fuss attitude on. Life is so busy now that we and a large majority of competitors don’t have the time to ride every day so we need to breed horses that don’t require a huge amount of work. As we have a farm to run there are weeks when we don’t get time to work the horses and Serenity turns up on the weekends and performs.

We are very excited to own Serenity and are really looking forward to seeing what he will do in the future and more importantly what he will produce, as there are many stallions out there but not all are sires. In his first few crops of foals he already has sired National, state and Royal champions. We have sold yearlings by him for $11,000 and at the 2016 Landmark Classic his progeny averaged $17,600. I cant wait until they are old enough to start drafting. We are really pleased with what he is producing and believe he has a big future.
