"Indiana Fair Exchange" Owner Ben de Klerk - Indiana Stud

She was born on 1 January 1961 from an Arab stallion "Sieraad" and a Boerperd mare "Blacky"  This will turn out to be a very memorable day for the Indiana Stud.

"Exchange" as she was fondly known was never shown under saddle but made her mark in the in-hand classes at local and National shows.  She won numerous Reserve and National titles as SA Junior and SA Senior Champion Mare.

In 1965 she had her first foal - "Indiana Girly-oh-My" by the stallion "Indiana Moslem"  Girly hurt her hip as a yearling and was never shown but turned out to be a very valuable broodmare.  She produced the SA Single harness champion "Indiana Peppie".  he was also one of the horses finishing the first two 100 mile endurances events at Hofmeyr.  She was also the dam of "Indiana Indian Chief" - another SA Champion harness horse.  "Indiana Hundred Pipers" was also one of her great off-spring.

In 1975 she gave birth to a filly "Indiana Sensational Fair Lady" and what a sensation she was.  SA Junior Champion mare for two years in a row and the triple SA Champ - Senior Champion mare, Champion 3 gaited and Champion Single harness.  This she also did for three years in a row.  "Sensation" is the mother of "Indiana Samorai" one of our best sires who also had an illustrious show career.   She is also the mother of "Indiana Janine" - the ever faithfull kids horse who taught numerous children including the Marais brothers, to ride.

In 1977 the filly "Indiana Love Call" was born. She did well in the show ring under saddle but it was also in the hand classes that she really made her mark.  First as SA Junior Champion mare and later as SA Senior Champion mare.  "Love Call"  is the mother of "Indiana Madiba" twice SA 5 gaited Champion as well as "China Girl" in turn the dam of "Indiana Senorita"

In 1981 a colt, "Indiana Top Gear" was born.  He was to become a top sire and father of "Indiana Sixpence"  Top Gear has a good show career as a 3 gaited riding horse.  He was gelded at the age of 18 due to cancer and then went on to become a top children's riding horse specially in the under 10 walk/trot division.

"Indiana Fair Exchange" bred 4 foals of which 3 became SA Champions.  All her foals bred National champions and their offspring are now producing the SA Champs - what a horse.  She would still have stood her ground in any breed class and would have still been a contender for the blue ribbon.
