What's Happened in October
Many more foals and WINNERS for our stallions is what's happening in October.
We have had twenty-eight arrive in October, giving us a total of sixty-eight so far. Still at least another 30 to go so we might crack the 100 for the season!! We have another Gypsy Cob in the waiting room which makes people look twice when they enter the property. Keep up to date either on Facebook or the Bombora Downs 2020 Foal Gallery for all the arrivals.
Timber is arriving in November to continue the fencing at Bed For Tails for the new paddocks. The new set up is slowly taking shape and the weather is helping with abundant green grass.
A few spellers are arriving as trainers look to the autumn for their runners. A couple are needing some rehab so a little TLC is spread around.
