Busy Spring Time

The last 3 months have been very busy at the farm delivering the future “Champions on the Racetrack”. A slow start in August with 11 arriving. Must admit it was a bit chilly overnight when these seven fillies and four colts came into the world. It started to warm up in September and so did the arrivals, with 27 greeting the world. The boys outdid the girls this month, with fifteen colts and twelve fillies.

Update from Bombora - August 2014

Work has been busy around the farm the last couple of months. The pastures have been sprayed and rested so that the best possible feed is available for new mums and their growing offspring. A growing future champion needs all the nutrients via mum's milk that green pastures and good feed can give.

Welcome to Season 2023

Horse Breeders Everywhere,

Welcome to the upcoming 2023 Breeding Season. COVID is now a distant memory while the economic climate is challenging across the board for a lot of people.

Our first foals will be arriving in August, while breeding will commence in September. Our stallion roster has changed this season with the departure of Warhorse (NZ) to a northern state and the retirement of Jungle Ruler. A new boy is joining our residents, Dandino (GB), De Gaulle and Frankel My Dear, that being CAPE OF GOOD HOPE (IRE) (Galileo (GB) x Hveger). Check out his stallion page.

Our foaling down operation has continued with innovation with cameras being installed in each of the “waiting room” paddocks so that mares can be monitored, both visually and on foal alarms, during the day. This allows us to quickly tend to mares that are showing any signs of foaling. Much easier on the mare and imminent foal if she can foal in a foal yard rather than out in the paddock with the other mares. A great addition to our safe environment for the mares.

The sales season was not as buoyant as in previous years. Quality breeding brings big prices but a limited sales bench for the next level means prices are not as resilient.

Development of the new farm has continued with new paddock fencing and yards being added. The weanlings have been moved and are now enjoying their new environment.

We welcome the new breeding season, and hope all have some success with the offspring.
