    Brooke had two Copabella horses at Camden for the weekend of competition. Yesterday Cypher (Cadiz-Vermont) was equal winner of the 5-year-old class, and today Camouflage (Cadiz-Venice) was equal winner of the 4-year-olds. Brooke, who owns Cam, was very pleased with his performance. Unfortunately the photo quality is rather poor as the show was held indoors and my camera doesn't do so well in those conditions.

    This horse has had more comebacks than most, firstly from injury and now after Julia's break due to pregnancy. The pair had their first outing on the weekend at SenTower Park in Belgium.

  • He's Home!

    11th March 2017

    It's been a long two months while Visage has been at Goulburn Valley Equine in Victoria being collected for Europe. But the stay was a successful one, and we now have a large store of frozen straws ready to be sent to France in good time for breeding season over there. We were able to have more collected and frozen for the Australian market while he was there, and are assured that his semen quality is still top-rank. His handlers were also very complimentary about his perfect manners read more...

    Quick updated pics of Squiggle. He is such a divine colour, far more like Dad, a lovely chocolate brown and white. He is very tall, way bigger than Puzzle or Willow were at 15 weeks.
