WHAT TEAM ARE YOU ON?
Thinking about Corporate Sponsorship? We have special packages just for you.
Veterans Retreat is home to a wonderful array of Farm Animals. These include Horses, Ponies, a Donkey, Sheep, Cows and Poultry. Each of them requires their own unique level of care and have their own quirky personality. We have created individual teams so you get a personalised opportunity to connect with and contribute to these animals on a daily basis. Your sponsorship also goes towards to the day to day running and maintenance of Veterans Retreat for you and these animals to enjoy.
For the cost of a coffee per week you could help contribute to the amazing work we do here supporting veterans and first responders. Set up your direct debit now!

RIP MATILDA Matilda (or Tilly as I called her) wass a Welara (welsh arab cross) mare who was approx 4 years old and 13hh. Sadly we lost Tilly unexpectedly at Easter in 2021 to an unknown illness. She had a great life here on the farm and enjoyed attending Pony Club with her rider Addi and was almost ready for my younger children to learn to ride on.
TEAM SUNNY Corporate Sponsor M by Design Sunny is a pure bred waler (theAustralian war horse) mare born on 2Sep 2017. She was broken in in early 2021 to be come a riding horse. She stands approx. 14.2h, has the most placid, gentle nature and loves a cuddle.
TEAM CHECKERS Corporate Sponsor Van Cotter Partners Checkers is a rideable thorough bred gelding born on 8 Oct 2009 who never made it to the race track. He stands a whopping 17hh and knows his size so can be a little cheeky. He suffers from mud fever on his legs so needs a dry paddock and a little extra care and monitoring.
TEAM DONKEY Corporate Sponsor TBC Donkey is currently an unnamed jack (but Simpson seems to be the popular choice). His birthday is 4 Feb 2019 and his job is to be a herd guardian for the sheep, protecting them from wild dogs. Seems he has taken a liking to Jess, but shake a bucket of pellets and he will come running.
TEAM PONIES Corporate Sponsor Way Out Back Team Ponies is made up of Jess, an over 25 year old brown woolly Shetland and Vanilla Ice Cream a 19year old palomino triple registered miniature pony crossed Shetland.
TEAM NARLA Corporate Sponsor Ironside Coffee Co Narla is a rideable standardbred mare and ex harness racing horse who won $36K on the track. She stands approx 15.3hh and is approx 16 years old. She was saved from the doggers in 2019 and her name, given by a volunteer, means "happy" in Kiwi.
TEAM SHEEP Corporate Sponsor Aussie Veterans Coffee Co We have a small flock of pure bred black face suffolk sheep (with ties to the EKKA) plus one token white girl called cuddles. Number 21is a crowd favourite and always stops for a cuddle and kiss (she loves it)
TEAM DAISY Corporate Sponsor Standown Park Daisy is a rideable thoroughbred mare born on 2 Nov 2010. She had 14 race sand no wins, so certainly isn't a leader, unless food is involved. She stands 16hh and was donated by a veteran and moved here from Canberra in early 2020, which was made possible by generous donations.
