This is one of my favourite times of the year-BREEDING SEASON!
We were kept busy through the months of December to February with the safe arrival of 4 new foals . Adras was kept busy at public stud and with our own
mares.We had time to work with the youngstock and work with the WBs while our Endurance horses continued their break.
One of the driest summers ever here in the Adelaide Hills we were threatened in the first 2 days of the New Year with a
huge, terrifying bushfire, with the fire looming only 6kms from home it was time to tackle evacuation of as many of the horses as we could thought we could get out. I didnt expect to be able to shift the 30 horses residing here at the time, but horsie friends
and friends of friends came out of the woodwork to help and shift 30 horses we did!
We were very fortunate to have the winds settle and change direction. Our property remained untouched. Some of our beautiful training grounds in the Kersbrook
forests were lost and its hard to imagine them ever being restored to their former glory. Still, we are all thankful that no lives were lost.
