Posted on August 12, 2019 at 3:10 AM

One of Adie's last foals has arrived a little early. but safe and full of sass. We've called her Dungarron Roisin, but her paddock name is Ruby. She's bold and friendly and growing like a weed. She's out of out lovely paint mare, River.

Dry autumn, Pretty ponies

Posted on March 13, 2018 at 6:05 PM

It's been a hot summer, and now a dry - very dry - autumn. There's a lot of feed being put into some ponies, but the big mob of mares on the creek seem to be fat on thin air. They come and watch every morning / afternoon at feed times. They are generally disappointed.

Tain's been weaned

Posted on October 21, 2017 at 2:35 AM

Tain was properly weaned last weekend. He's had Ghillie as a companion for the last month - someone to play with, and someone else to help teach manners and boundaries. I couldn't be more pleased with this cross and how he's grown out.

These photos were taken last weekend.

Colour testing

Posted on June 14, 2017 at 3:10 AM

I've had nearly all of the ponies colour tested now, their results are on each pony's profiles. This helps clarify what the ponies colours actually are, and helps predict the colour possibilties for future foals. 

Here's some information from the Practical Horse Genetics colour test returns, that may help make the letters make a bit more sense.

E/e = extension - in it's simpl...

Welcome Dungarron Tain

Posted on May 24, 2017 at 4:15 AM

Well, it's been a while, but as a follow up to the last news installment., River was successfully served and fell in foal. She spent the winter keeping Adie company and in the early hours of March 31, she presented us with a gorgeos colt foal, who we have named Dungarron Tain. Tain has been healthy, happy and friendly from day one, with River being a fantasic, calm natured Mum.

Welcome River

Posted on August 28, 2016 at 3:20 AM

A little sideways shift in our breeding program as the crop of partbreds in Australia dwindle. We'd like to welcome Paint mare, Hustle Me Dreams to the herd. Known affectionately as River, she carries a chestnust base plus the white patterns overo and sabino.

We are hoping that when covered by a Highland she'll produce a beautiful western-style pony, heavily coloured,hopefully carrying dun (Adie is Dd, so 50% chance) with a bit ...

The love of my life, the Highland that started it all. My beautiful Cam.

I'm so sorry, my love. It will be a sadder world without you.

Pretty ponies

Posted on April 11, 2015 at 6:40 AM

Just some photos of some of the ponies. It's exceptionally dry here, looks almost droughty rather than the emerald green we usually have through autumn. We got just over an inch of rain last weekend, but we need quite a bit more before it starts getting cold, and we lose any chance of feed growing before winter comes. I'm kind of thankful we cut hay last year.
