In the beginning . . .
My love for Labradors started in1996 when I got my first unregistered
Labrador, Chekan. I took Chekan for basic obedience and got involved in
dog showing through Northern Free State Kennel Club. I took Chekan to a
few open shows and decided its time to take it to the next step. In 1998
I bought my first KUSA registered Labrador from Wilma Keyser of Mariska
Labradors. Mariska Tanshè a black female.
Tanshè and myself entered our first championship show in 1999. At her
second ch-show in 2000 at NFSKC, I’ve won my first CC with Tanshè. I was
In 2000 I fell in love with Stafford Baker’s Ch Marsta Secret Duke and
Duke’s daughter Ch Sunspot Hot Lady of Marsta. I contacted Stafford and
my name was put a waiting list for a yellow male puppy.
It was not long before Stafford contacted me with a yellow male for me.
On 29 May 2000 Marsta Ibn Sharac (later Ch) was born. Sharac was out of
Ch Landrust Konyak x Ch Sunspot Hot Lady of Marsta. Sharac became my
foundation male and sired several of our breeding/show dogs. Sharac was
made up as a breed champion and declared 29 July 2002.
In 2001 I bought Adamasdor Kimma Mikooi from Renier Jansen van Vuuren.
Kimma was out of Ch Tapeatom ‘L’ for Leather of Dennegeur x Ch Adamasdor
Calamity Cato. In 2003, Kimma’s litter sister Adamasdor Venus Viool of
Ablesing also came to me.
In June 2003, I registered my kennel name Ablesing.
Venus is my foundation bitch and most of my dogs are decended from
Sharac or Venus or a combination of the two.
Sharac sired a litter to Lizette Smith’s Ailsacraig Ivory Fantasy of
Lambrada and I took a yellow male from that litter. 1 August 2003
Lambrada Dreamboy Barku of Ablesing was born. Barku sired several
litters over the years and you will find him in a few pedigrees all over
