The 2021 Season Begins
And now the season begins with the next generation of champions being born or conceived.
The foals have started to arrive. Staff have foaled down 8 so far across various stallions with the colts leading the way 6 to 2. Check out the arrivals in the foal gallery:

Vetting has started for the mares and of course, stallion covers commence on 1st September.

Dandino (GB) had a new winner in August in the form of Zoe May, a winner over 1200m at Warrnambool on a Heavy rated track. Read about her win:
ZOE MAE a winner for Dandino (GB)
Dandino (GB) also had two very promising first starters in Night Eruption and I’m A Country Gal. It shows that Dandino (GB) can get winners over a sprint distance as well as middle distance.
Warhorse (NZ) had a couple of runners go oh so close to posting further wins during the month.
Still looking at some exciting time over the spring with our stallion’s progeny.
Need some help deciding on a suitable suitor for your girl. Give Christoph a call to discuss.
Around the Farm
Lots of maintenance has been done in the last month leading up to the season. Fences renewed, gates rehung, pastures sprayed, etc. so the best environment is available for the budding champion of the future.
The fencing and new yards at the Beds For Tails property are all coming together and the first horses are now residing there. A large gum tree next door is also host to an eagle’s nest and we had a kangaroo come for a visit.
It feels like we’ve just finished one sales season and the next is appearing on the horizon. Entries have been submitted for the 2022 Inglis sales and the first inspections will soon follow. Bombora Downs provides yearling and weanling preparations if you are thinking of selling last years crop in the 2022 sales. We also provide a service to help enter your horse in the online sales if you are thinking of selling.
