My husband shudders everytime he drives up our road and notices truck tyre marks. This time it was a large Carmody's truck (sorry Muzz)
Once the truck pulled up, and a very friendly and chatty driver dismounted and let down the ramps, i realised this trailer had been here before (or at least one exceptionally similar had) It looked just like the trailed that was once owned by Tasmanian Horse Transport that had brought both Cedar and Gypsy from Tasmania all those years ago. Still in great nick, there inside was the lovely Rosedene, all the way from Tamworth. Also on board was Tathradene and her colt foal Angusdene, and the old gelding Tammie Norrie of Fairlaw, all three on their way to central Victoria to their new home. But Miss Rosedene came off the truck like an old hand, the driver Charlene singing her praises (well, she was totally in love with all the Highlands, really - but who is it that doesn't fall in love with a Highland once they've met one?)
Many thanks to Mhairi McGregor for letting us look after Rosedene for the next couple of years. Rosie is out of Mhairi's personal pride and joy, the beautiful Steffiedene, by the outstanding stallion Fyfedene (sadly now deceased) We look forward to watching Rosie grow up, and i'm sure she'll enjoy the company of the other young Highlands here at Dungarron.
