Wielka Este PL mare 1962 (El Trypoli PL x Wielka Zorza PL) 
 These are two of my earliest pictures. This is Wielka Este, one of the very few horses bred by a private breeder in Poland, Mr Zygmut Braur. She belonged to Wilkesbacka were I did my mandatory work experience in 8th grade (I was 14 yrs). She had an enormous presence. Besides being a good broodmare she was one of the oldest mares in Sweden. During the World Cup Show 1990 she participated in a breeding parade at the age of 28 yrs. She was the dam of 12 broodmares, three of them was exported to USA and one to Norway.

She descends from the Mlecha OA dam line, imp in 1845 to Jarczowce. There are two main branches of this dam line, that of Fanfara 1914 and that of Lysa 1915. Wielka Este belongs to the branch of Fanfara through her daughter Pomponia II 1924. Pomponia II was the granddam of Wielka Este's mother Wielka Zorza. Zorza Pelkinska, Wielka Este's granddam, was born at Pelkinie, a stud known for its excellent racehorses. Beside Wielka Zorza by Wielki Szlem she produced the stallion Geyran by Kaszmir. Kaszmir was a great producer of racehorses and Geyran continued that tradition by producing *Arwistawa, a great racehorse and show champion.

Wielka Zorza produced the mares *Warna by *Naborr, *Wiganda by Faher and *Wielka Kometa by Comet imp Sweden. *Wielka Kometa had the stallion *Komis by Czort in Poland. For some reasons she was difficult to breed in Sweden and left only one daughter, the in utero import Dokema by Doktryner who left no daughters before her exportation to France. What is interesting to note is that El Trypoli sired four daughters used in Sweden (beside Wielka Este there was Grobla, *Sake and *Melhafa-Ed-Areg). This is rather large number since he was only used at stud for three years and only had two offspring the last two years.
