My favourite horses...

Okay, this is a pic of True Lily - 5 m by Joshua Dancer(USA) out of Tritonia, she's one of the yard "champs" coz she's won loads of races for us and will probably go on to be a breedmare later this year.



Cartier's Dream - fondly known as "Carts" is the "Old Man" in the yard, he's 11 and by Salaadim, he won loads of races in his career and is now used mostly for teaching the babies abot pens and the like..


Muswatunya - "Muzi"..his name means Smoke that thunders, and is named for Victoria Falls....he's by Rambo Dancer out of White Water, when he came to us he was supposedly "Ready to Race"...what a joke, the poor little chap could hardly even trot in a straight line...but a month with me on his back and he was just about ready to go into his first dressage show.... :)


Ports - Port Augusta - unfortunately broke down soon after this pic was taken, at the moment we're rehabing him, and once he's better we'll find a nice home for him to retire to. He won 5 races and is 7 years old.


This is Takenforaride - fondly known as "TK" he's 3 years old and is just SUCH a sweet heart...I adore him, and so does his groom, you always hear his groom singing to TK in the mornings....really sweet.


This is just a pic of our yard when the club had finished renovating for us...in that big gap you see in front of the stables we've put up a whole bunchof rolling paddocks...it's so important to us that the horses get out and have the sun on their backs without being ridden.


This is Bunny Hugger and Toowoomba, in 2005 in their first race. Toowoomba is the one with the #16 saddle cloth...you can't see Bunny so well....but I broke them in June-ish 2005...and this pic was taken in December of that year.

Oh, there so pretty! Thanks for sharing. :) I love watching them run!

Um, how would you like to come to So. Cal, and "finish" my mare? LOL! She loves to buck! Other than that, she is perfect!

Warning, by bucking I mean, vertical twisting, leaping, kicking, arching... The whole bit! :( My arthritic joints are not impressed! :(

3 years! OMG! I knew it was hard, but I wasn't aware it was that bad.

I have huge issues on this topic, but I'm not going to go there.. I will just say, that the immigration rules etc. are crazy, and need to be re-done so badly!... It seems like only the "bad" people get in easily. :(

I think one of the rules shoud be: Anyone who works with horses should get in without any problems! If one can deal with crazy horses, one just has to be a pretty good person!
