Conmoon's story
+

An exciting young sire with a pedigree of impeccable proportions.

The Conmoon story involves three generations of top shelf performance genetics across the Cutting and Campdraft arenas. He is second generation bred by Kylie Graham with each generation being bred to the absolute best and the resultant offspring continuing to exceed expectations.

In 2010 Kylie was given the opportunity to breed an embryo foal from the wonderful mare, Just One Moore owned by Trevor Graham. Just One Moore is by Doc’s Spinifex and from One Moore Roc, making her a full sister to the great One Moore Spin. Knowing that she only had the one opportunity to breed from this iconic mare line she intended to make it count and researched which sire would best suit.

At the time a young American sire named Metallic Cat was starting to gain a significant reputation, having won the 2008 USA NCHA Futurity and after seeking the advice from Richard Bull she decided that she would use him. Metallic Cat was available for the first time in Australia and she thought the new bloodline had potential to create something great.

The resulting foal was the beautiful filly, named Metallic Moon. Metallic Moon showed all signs of being everything Kylie hoped for from day one. She was broken in at home by Mat Durkin & Kylie and again impressed them both with her ability and trainable mind.

Kylie decided to send her cutting to give her every opportunity to reveal how good she really was. Phil Dawson then took over as Moon’s trainer in her 2.y.o year and she remained with him throughout her cutting career. Phil’s enthusiasm for Moon speaks volumes for her. He states, “She’s smart, composed, athletic, cowy, just a really cool horse. One of the best two I’ve ever trained”. He has also backed his opinion by being one of the first to breed to her eldest progeny, Conmoon.

At the 2014 NCHA Futurity she had the Highest Aggregate going into the Final and finished well up in the placings. She again impressed at all the Futurities, finalling at each event. Her Derby year saw similar results as she finalled & placed/won continually and impressed everyone throughout her career.

She then returned to Kylie’s and commenced her campdrafting career at which she has excelled from the getgo. At her second start Metallic Moon placed in the Novice at the 2018 ACA National Finals at Bourke & Wills. She has continued to place & has won many cutouts at some of the highest levels of drafting possible.

The exciting part however is that as a 4.y.o Kylie decided to breed an embryo foal from her for commercial reasons with the Landmark sale as a potential sale venue. Keen to present a really good sale horse each year she felt a foal from Moon would demand attention from the buyers so Hazelwood Conman was selected as the sire. The resultant foal would offer a One Moore Roc, Metallic Cat, Hazelwood Conman cross.

Conmoon

The plan was going perfectly with the colt foal, Conmoon, being foaled in 2016. Then the sale plan was abandoned as Conmoon exceeded expectations in every way. Kylie says she hasn’t ridden another horse that combines Hazelwood Conman’s magnificent ability to chase & rate cattle, while possessing Metallic Moons’ athleticism, strength & her superior trainable mind.

Broken in by Will Durkin as a 2.y.o he was then returned to Kylie, where he has been brought along slowly, building a cutting foundation, along with steady chasing of cattle and lots of mustering, typical of all Kylie’s horses. He is headed for the campdraft arena but we all have to wait because he won’t appear until 2021 starting with select Futurity Drafts.

From Conmoon’s first season of breeding in 2018 as a 2.y.o, his first 11 foals born are sensational. Meanwhile he is already in significant demand for breeding, attracting an ever-increasing list of very impressive mares.

Exciting times ahead!
