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.
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.
Way Out Back
Matilda (or Tilly as I call her) is a Welara (welsh arab cross) mare who is approx. 3-4 years old. She is broken in, but needs time under saddle before being ridden. She stands approx. 13hh, knows her name and comes running when called.
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.
The Local Graze
Sunny is a pure bred waler (theAustralian war horse) mare born on 2Sep 2017. She is planned to be sent away and broken in during 2020 to be come a riding horse. She stands approx. 14.2h, has the most placid, gentle nature and loves a cuddle.
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.
The MadHatter & Co Catering & Events
Team Ponies is made up of Jess, an over 25 year old brown woollyShetland and Vanilla Ice Cream a 19year old palomino triple registered miniature pony crossed Shetland.
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)
