The stud was commenced in 1949 at Millmerran & was orginally known as Murralah Arabians. The foundation mare was Motalga (Indian Light x Tatima) bred by Mr H J McDonald. All Arabians at this stage were registered in England. The stallion Nekhl from Bostock Stud was used. From Mrs Bligh, the filly Murra (Ibn Fayrial x Medina) was purchased. Mrs Bligh was a great help & supporter throughout the early days of the stud.
Murra inherited her sires superb action & has passed it on to her decendants - this mare had a great influence on the stud. Electricia (Electric Silver Imp x Baksheesh) was the next addition - purchased from Fenwick Stud. She was retained by the stud for only a short time before leaving, but left the filly Trix Silver. 1954 saw the purchase of Royal Domino (Blue Domino x Scherzade Imp) & in 1958 the mare Mutrif (Rakib x Matoufa) was also purchased.
This nucleus of a stud with resultant progeny including stallion Khazib, Trix Silver, Melissa, Mutilla & others moved to the Bell District in 1959 after Marion Macqueen married Tom Sharman. The stud was renamed Jangharm Arabians after the mountain on the property.
While the children were young, Jangharm horses were not shown but, when the youngsters were old enough and wanted to go to Pony Club, Jangharm started to return to the show ring with a few horses. Gradually the whole family became involved & all four children rode Arabians & their own Arabian ponies.
From 1959 on, the Royal Domino & Mutrif combination made Arabian history in Australia by producing the famous sons Ibn Domino, Royaljan, Mildom, Arim, Mutrex & daughters Royal Tiff, Royal Riff, Domtif (dam of Bandom & Arabian Park Bandif). Mutrif had two progeny by other stallions, Ashtrif by Rikash & Gai Gallalea by Gai Galison imp. Ashtrif had a son Escalate (exp UAE) & two daughters by Viktory (imp Can). Trix Silver went to Ralvon Stud & produced her own dynasty. The Royal Domino/Mutrif combination has had a great influence on other studs, such as Sheoak Arabians, Talquah Stud, Wollumbin Arabians, Arabian Park, Henely Farm, Pimpala Stud and Ralvon.
Royal Domino also produced extremely well with Murra giving three daughters Murral, Murmur, Royal Murra. Royal Murra is the backbone of Jangharm Arabians. Royal Murra produced Haisumi (by Hansan imp and Marmul by Bandom). Haisumi produced Dancing Silver (by Viktory imp/exp Can & Shimmering Gold by Escalate exp UAE).
The stud has been fortunate over the years to be able to use some important sires. The first being Viktory (imp/exp Can) who was leased from Willomar Arabians for four years to give more movement, height & improve hindquarters. Barabas imp UK (Najejni x Barnatnaja) was a stallion the stud had been watching for a while, and were delighted when they could lease him. He did so much for the stud producing beautiful heads, eyes & great endurance attributes. Many of his progeny are out in the Endurance field here and overseas. While the stud had Barabas they relocated to Ramsay near Toowoomba bringing what they considred the best mares cutting right down in numbers - this was in 2000.
The Present Day
The stud's main sire is Baranski (Barabas imp x Dancing Silver) and the mares Bartrushka (Barabas imp x Dancing Silver) & Barsharnee (Barabas imp x Shimmering Gold). Marmul was lost in 2005 - she had produced the gelding Bayzar (exp NZ) where he has done so well under saddle & in hatler after having achieved top results in Australia. Brasch (by Barabas) & Express (by Arim) & other Marmul geldings are now overases competing in endurance.
Domingnon & Royal Gindi by Royal Domino from the Abiram mare Misik have carved their own dynasty. Domingnon was very much part of the stud & was a great show horse having done everything from halter, western &, English ridden classes & harness. At 27 years he went to Jaytee to sire foals for Al Marah. He was in his 30th year when he started to go down hill & was farewelled.
In early 2008 the stud took delivery of bay colt Fayt (Fayrid imp USA x Psyches Serenade). He will eventually increase the genetic pool by providing an outcross for the current stock, allowing the stud to retain their beautiful Barabas mares.
The stud is run by Tom & Marion and Richard & Stacey.
