At Cross Creek Farms we believe in broodmares that are proven performance horses. Our lovely KWPN keur mare Nouska (Julio Mariner/Voltaire) was a feisty competitor in the Grand Prix ring with multiple placings and a $25,000 win during the 2007 Arizona Winter Circuit. Following her show career, she produced six lovely youngsters for us. The oldest, CCF Savusavu by Ocean I (South Pacific/Ramzes), is competing as a six-year-old in the Young Jumpers division in California. Next in line are four Clintord I (Clinton/Caletto I) offspring – CCF Coral Sea (2013), CCF Galactica II (2014), CCF Clear Sailing (2015) and CCF Culebra (2016). This year she has a brand new, very elegant filly sired by Durango La Silla (Darco/Chin Chin).
At 22 years of age, Nouska still has the looks of a ten-year-old, but we do think it’s time to retire her while we’re on a winning streak. When baby April is weaned, Nouska will enjoy the rest of her days at Cross Creek Farms in Tucson.
