Crystal Heartbeat 2011
(Crystal Romance x Bint Irexandya).
88% Crabbet with a dash of Polish through Secret Heart. He stands at 16.hh and has a very high tail carriage. Elastic paces, with good ground covering stride, Skye is showing signs of excelling at endurance. Iam sure he will be very versatile to turn his hoof to anything!
Owned by Ruth Whitby.
Update.....Skye is now six and will take part in his first Endurance GB competitive 32k ride May 2017.
Shadowsfly 2009 gelding by Ibn Silver out of Shades of Tessra. 'Fly's achievements.....BEF Futurity Higher First Premium, numerous wins in hand, Crabbet champs qualified, won his Prelim test on his dressage debut, attended a few pleasure rides. Showing a fab attitude and going to be a very versatile boy. Amazing kind temperament and gorgeous to live with.

(Shades of Tessra x Crystal Romance)
I purchased Za when he was still in his Mummys tummy. On seeing a photo in 2012 of his full sibling ,I discovered Daphne had a 2013 foal in the making .
He is everything you could ever ask for .Perfect in every way ..so far...
He came to live in Scotland in November 2013 and in 2014 I took him to 4 shows .One of which was the Royal Highland Show at Edinburgh some 70 miles from me. He stayed overnight in one of those temporary stables and as the showfield is right next to Edinburgh airport we had planes taking off almost in the next field ! He never even noticed them .He was foot perfect in the ring at Scotlands biggest show,and that is exactly how I want my ridden Arabs to be.
I dont do any training with him as such ,hes only one . I do play with him and I love him.
All being well I will back him when he is 5 and hopefully he will have a career in endurance to begin when he is 7 .
Hes growing like a mushroom ....

Crystal Magic Star 2009
(Ibn Silver x Crystal Stardrift).
Philip Hirst has owned this lovely boy for about two years...2013 approx. The photo is both of them successfully completing the novice season at Red Dragon. They hope to do FEI* in 2015. He certainly is a Romac Magic Star!
Photo by Dave Hirst, with kind permission from Philip Hirst. Star came 9th in the whole world. Star has recently been sold....I have no information who to. But I do know he has gone to a good home.
(Ibn Silver x Bint Arishma}
I bought Rishim as a 2 year old in 2009, with the intention of doing Endurance . He has the company of my older Arab and was brought on slowly. Unfortunately, after various problems he was sent to Liphook Equine Hospital, where he was diagnosed with Navicular Syndrome. Earlier this year sadly, I decided to retire him as he was clearly uncomfortable being ridden despite all my efforts to resolve the issues he has. He has a fantastic temperament and is just beautiful . This is so sad but he has a home for life.

Silver Xenia 2007
(Ibn Silver x Bint Irexanda).
Silver Xenia aka Flicker is 14.3hh, I have owned for 5yrs since she was a 2yo! She is my 1st owned longed for Arab and a horse of a life time, all my 4 children ride her, my 20yo sister backed and schooled her with my help she was a pro and behaved like she'd been doing it 10yrs and I'm incredibly proud of her. We've had some very emotional times 1 recently when she had a displaced colon and another 6 months after buying her she sustained an awful injury to a hind leg where it was lacerated to the bone! But our next horse will definitely be an Arab and ideally one bred by Daphne.
Flicker is owned by Dionne Schuurman. Photo from the The Romac FB page, with kind permission.
Celtic Maggie May 2005
(Secret Heart x Bint Magnetta).
Daphne has a soft spot for this mare. She asked me what had become of her. I found an old thread on an Arab forum where Celtic Maggie May was mentioned...(she is affectionately known as 'Messy Jessy'). I contacted the then owner who had sold her. She got in touch with me and it seems Jessy was bought back. A lovely story and the Romac Stud would like to thank the owner of Jessy, Liza Brucciani for the photos.
