BRINGING THE HYPO-ALLERGENIC CURLY HORSE BREED TO AUSTRALIA!!!!!

 

 

Yarraleigh is a small Curly Horse stud located in Gippsland, Victoria.  We started out in Ballarat, but relocated to the coast in late 2018.

Moving from our Ballarat picturesque 150 acre farm to a smaller 35 acres has caused us to downsize our breeding program dramatically and we now only breed 2 or 3 curlies per year.

I have been allergic to horses for as long as I can remember, but for as long as I can remember have always loved them.  In 2008 I decided that the effects of horses on me was just getting too much to put up with and I had to either give them up or find an alternative.  Fortunately for me I was able to find an alternative being the Curly Horses.

Initially we imported frozen semen from Canada and have bred 3 wonderful foals (a colt and 2 fillies – Caesar, Zena and Aphrodite).  After getting these foals on the ground, we loved the breed so much we decided to import a stallion to bring this wonderful horse to Australia (see our stallion pictured – “Moonlight”).  Moonlight arrived in June 2011 and he is absolutely wonderful.  Friendly, easy going and fantastic to handle.  Moony has had 50+ curly babies in Australia and has now been gelded and living his life out as a riding horse….

Caesar is now 8 and is also standing at stud and we just adore his babies.  Caesar is a gorgeous 14.3hh Bay with bling.  His colour testing is Ee Aa and he carries a Sabino gene.

We have 2 farm bred colts as well.  

Merlin is a Smoky Black (EE aa nCr 5 panel negative) Colt and is a stocky beautiful boy.

Phinneus is a Buckskin (EE Aa nCr 5 panel negative) Colt and he is homozygous Curly.  So no matter what breed of horse you put him to you will get a curly foal.  Very exciting this fella….

I welcome you to come and meet our beautiful Curly Horses and experience what I have with them.

 

We are now thrilled to welcome Liza Buhle and her stud Greenhills Curly Horse Stud in SE QLD.  If you’re from QLD, we can put you in touch with Liza and her beautiful Curlies or look her stud up on Facebook.  She will be happy to chat with you.
