This month's Stable Talk features the handsome Irish Sport Horse stallion, Jamali who is a fan of our Protechmasta infra-red range. His human mum, Alisha has been keeping A&A up to date with his progress and sharing her tips on getting the best results from the Protechmasta horse rug and poll pad. When we heard how well Jamali has been going lately, and saw how gorgeous he is in his photos, we knew we had to interview this stallion from the Sunshine State!
Have you been with your human Alisha since you were born? If not, how long have you been together and what were you doing before you found each other?
Yes, I've been with Alisha since I first opened my eyes and took my first breath. My real mum Cleo was soooo excited, she was too busy running around announcing my arrival to everyone.
What have you done so far with your human, and what would you like to help her achieve this year?
My human has been so kind to let me mature before she started any serious competitions. She did allow a very close friend to campaign me in the Queensland young horse classes as a 4yo and at the end of the season we did the 5yo classes at the Queensland States where we came 5th. Now that I've filled out and am stronger, we are currently competing Novice dressage and are just about to start Elementary at the end of this year.
Are you easily distracted by a good looking mare when you are out with your human or do you find it easy to focus?
No, I know that when we are out and about at events I have to be on my best behaviour.
Have you been used for breeding or are you busy concentrating on your career? If not, do you hope to one day have a few girlfriends and some foals that are just like you?
I've been very lucky to have a few girlfriends earlier on to see what my offspring were like. We have waited for them to mature a little and see what they are like to work with. So far they are quiet, easy to train, very athletic, with plenty of height. Most have been solid colour, believe it or not! We are now happy to allow any outside mares that may be interested (*wink*) but my human is strict in that I can only breed from Nov through to Jan, so it doesn't interfere with my training under saddle.
What are your favourite things in the world?
My handful of treats after a workout. Being put in a fresh green grassy field, its so exciting!
If you were a human celebrity, who would you be and why?
George Clooney - the ultimate silver fox right?
