And we're done!

Posted on October 8, 2019 at 2:55 AM

Never in my life would i plan to have five foals in a season, but hey ... happy accidents have produced beautiful results.

Rossi made his way into the world at 10.30am this morning (8th October) Tamaris is a 15yo maiden, and she's doing a grand job. She chose a cold day after a really warm spring spell (two days over 30degrees this weekend) but he's up and doing all the right things. Tam is a little sore, but coping and feeding him like a champ.

I've named him Dungarron Ardrossan (Rossi)

Wish has arrived

Our fourth foal has arrived. Another filly! Rosemarkie Merriijig was polite enough to foal mid-morning and i was lucky enough to be right there as Wish entered the world. She is exactly what i was looking for when i added a Paint to our partbred breeding program. My dream horse. Red dun with high whites. I've named her Earrach - Scottish gaelic for spring. Her paddock name is Wish.

Sunny spring day.

Number three

Completely in over my head now, we've had the first of three completely unplanned foals arrive. He's exceptionally cute, and i've called him Caiseal (pronounced cashel). Keziah is the perfect maiden mare and is looking after him brilliantly.

Cash will be for sale at weaning as a gelding. He'll be registered pastbred.

New friends

Floyd is growing up

Posted on August 22, 2019 at 1:50 AM

Young Floyd had some big shoes to fill. We lost our beautiful stallion MacAdie to a horrible paddock accident in March this year. It's still exceptionally painful to think about. Looking at how Floyd is growing out, we think he will be able to step into Stallion duties when he's older. He carries great bloodlines. His sire, Rosemarkie Archer, is by Fourmerk Royla Scott (Imp) and dam, Staffa, is from Currie Park Stud in Western Australia and carries pretty much all of the original Australian lines. He's a really nice guy as well. With luck he'll be as exceptionally quiet and kind as his sire.

Another one hits the ground

The second foal for 2019 was born on Friday 16 August. Another filly for Adie. First foal for Rosedene. This one will be named Dungarron McNeill. Paddock name Maggie. Named for a long term friend of the family.

Welcome little Ruby

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. 

Floyd has arrived

On Monday 12th February we were blessed with a lovely colt by Sue Jarman's Rosemarkie Archer out of our lovely Currie Park Staffa.

I've started an album of photos on the Photo Gallery page,

Floyd will be a keeper, and we'll run him on to see if he'll be stallion material as he is completely unrelated to any of the mares we have here. Fingers crossed.
