This is just a quick update link as to what is going on at Yarraleigh!!!!
Updated 5th May, 2013
Moonlights now the proud daddy of 15 gorgeous foals. 10 on farm and 5 outside foals (see foals page). He has had a fantastic array of colors from Grullo to Perlino Dun to Buckskin to Dunskin to Blacks. All the foals are beautifully put together and have beautiful temperaments and movement. There has been a huge difference in curl level from a tight all over curl to a smooth coat with just a wavy mane and tail.
Moonlight has paddock served this season and has another great crop due to start dropping in October 2013.
Caesar has grown into a gorgeous colt with a beautiful temprament and he will serve a couple of mares for the 2013/14 season.
Zena has been broken in thanks to Seona and Mark Adams at www.edgertonpark.webs.com. Seona, who is located near Geelong has done a fantastasic job of breaking Zena in. Seona also broke Moony in and I would highly recommend her services to anyone wanting their horse beautifully broken in.
Aphrodite is out the back paddock running with our 2yo cremello filly. I will look at breaking her in at the end of 2013.
Moony’s paddock serving was a great success. He was great with the mares and foals and they just all ran as a herd. He was really gentle and I had no issues. He was so sweet with the foals. I was really proud of him. He has a few knicks on him but other than that he is still looking his handsome self. He has been here for almost 2 years and it feels like I have had him forever, his nature is just so very sweet and he is so easy to handle. He loves his snuggles and I just can’t believe he is a stallion sometimes.
We have tested both fresh and frozen semen and both mares got in foal first go which is fabulous and shows the strength of his semen. Both those foals have now been born. So exciting.
Will keep you updated with photo’s of the babies as they grow.
