When I got this mare she was known as Black Crystal, We have since traced the brand to Raheen Stud in Queensland, So she is a racing thoroughbred born in 1976.

Black Crysal is very interesting horse, she has had a long and interesting life that I am slowly unravelling. We think she was a race horse named whelk as the brands match but not all the markings. She is a very strong horse with incredible lung capacity and endurance. Her little baby is now over a year old and looks so much like it is hard to tell them apart.
