Introducing:

Starbuck Showman (pend)

Sold to a terrific Home in Melbourne!!!

At 10:30am on 16th October, we welcomed Apollo's first baby into the world, when Flash presented us with a stunning chestnut colt

He is the prettiest little fellow, and so SO confident! I am so thrilled with him!

He's been christened "Elmo" because he's red and he loves tickles!

Elmo will be registered AMPS and APSB.

Arriving somewhat unexpectedly on the 29th November is Saphira.

Saphira technically wasn't due until the 17th Dec, but she made a dramatic entrance into the world, 2 hours after Tina foaled unexpectedly! Two foals within 2 hours! Who would've known!

This one is another keeper. She is just devine! I FINALLY got my coloured filly AND she has her dad's trademark blue eye!

What an interesting day, but so WELL worth it! Mother and daughter are doing great. Photos by Deltree photography first hour after she'd been born!

Pollanda Bundaberg Red

Sadly Dec'd :( 

Owned by Polly Ashby and Amanda Lantry

 Entering the world over 2 weeks late is Apollo's second baby, a beautiful chestnut and white colt, Bundy.

Bundy wasn't exactly a planned pregnancy, Apollo and his mother were being transported to a Show last year and she decided she should push my gelding out of the way and have her way with Apollo at 100kms an hour!

Bundy is the result, and his owners are thrilled - as AM I!

WOW...

Right - at 4 weeks of age!

 This standing thing is HARD!

Below - 4 weeks of age.

 

 

 Below: At 5 weeks of age

 

 

 

 

Bundy's first attempt at standing, didn't go so well! He even has a collar of white like his daddy!

Look at that little face! She's a little ripper!

 

 

*I'm so lucky that I have such great friends who are talented photographers*

 

 

 

 

 

Arriving 3 weeks late into the world is Apollo's fourth baby, Callie, out of Charm Park Bridget (left)...

This one was worth waiting for.

Bridget, being a maiden mare, was something of an unknown but she has produced a beautiful baby to Apollo - pic below. - Photo at 3 days of age.

"Forrest"

Tina's tiny colt - born 29th November 2011

Without any warning, Forrest entered the world at 5:30am. The night before Tina had shown no signs of imminent foaling, and so surprised everyone. Forrest is by a stallion that Tina was running with when I bought her.

To me, he looked somewhat overcooked, and was quite weak and wobbly compared to Saphira - who was born 2 hours afterwards!

Unfortunately I had no due date as the idiots we rescued his mum from had no idea when the stallion mated with her. The first part of her pregnancy Tina had been FULL of worms, not fed properly and left to be wild, and it shows in Forrest's initial, early development. 

 At two days of age Forrest went downhill and needed veterinary treatment for a mystery high temperature and swollen muzzle/eye. Although he's still a bit behind Saphira, he is now improving daily and galloping around, driving his mum nuts!

He's a determined little bugger, and I'm happy that he's just HERE, yet alone doing well.

THANKS to Deltree Photography (again) Right - Forrest at 1 month of age, with his best mate, Vala.

 

Below: Forrest at 2 weeks of age and his mate, Vala - my stud supervisor.

The antics these two get up to have to be seen to be believed.

 

 

 

 

 Above: Forrest at a respectable 2 months of age. Finally starting to come into his own, and totally changing colour also!

Below - with mum, Tina.

 


 


Right and below: Kenny the day he came home


 

Left - Forrest at 2 weeks of age.

He's come along in leaps and bounds and you can't keep him still for more than a minute!

He's a total character now, very bold, very friendly, his favourite game is to run behind me and bite me on the butt! Pic below.

 

 

 Above and below - at 2 months, looking very sexy.


Below - Forrest returned to me in 2013 as his other owner had health issues and was finding it hard to cope. He has palled up with Kenny already!
