A quiet achiever, Crown
Jewel or "Jewel" as she was affectionately known, did not amass large
quantities of ribbons or titles at major shows (she was in fact unshown)
but excelled where it mattered most, as a brood mare, having an
impressive lifetime total of eighteen foals.
It was not, however, just in
production of sheer numbers of progeny that Jewel excelled, but the
quality of the offspring she produced, many being Championship
winners. Most of her foals were of predominantly Crabbet blood but only
the last five by Chip Chase Kaiwanna,
were in fact pure Crabbet.
years old when purchased by us, she went on to produce four fillies and
one colt - three of her lovely pure Crabbet daughters are still in the
stud today (Boomori Touch Of Class,
Boomori Bint Jewel and Boomori
Monique) - see "Mares".
