    Description

    Horse Breeding Farm, 100 acres, during our breeding season (Sept to March) we look after up to 90 broodmares most of which foal down with us, then we get them back into foal. We raise the offspring and take them to sales all over Australia. We are a family of husband and wife with 2 children. I have a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, a Diploma in Equine Stud Management, I am a Licenced Artificial Inseminator for Equine and have worked with horses all my life. We brought our farm in 2006 but before then I was Studmaster on many various Horse studs in Australia. I am originally from New Zealand where my family also had horses. Our farm has plenty to offer all year round.
