Pilot's Image (Ace)

Pilot's Image aka Ace was purchased from Rod Duddy in 1988 after falling in love with him first sight!

I just had to have him! and bought him from Rod and Rod continued to train and campaign him for me.

Ace has a few ROMS at Trail and Western Pleasure.

Ace is my baby, I adore him. Even though he is 21 years old, he looks and acts like a 10 year old!

Recently, we had a cancer scare with Ace, he had a growth on his penis, it was cut out and we are hoping that he will live out the rest of his life, relaxing in the paddock, cancer free.

SC Canucopyme aka 'Toby'

 

 

Monday the 8th May 2007 was an exciting day for Chaianne, Chaianne was presented with her wish horse, Toby.

Toby was bred on Smiths Creek Paint Stud in Rolland Plains by Craig Dengate and Karen Lonski and sold as a colt to Toscha. Toby was later gelded and trained in Western Pleasure. Toby is an extremely quiet and kind horse and Chaianne and he will be great mates for many years.

A quirky twist of fate had Craig and Karen once again with Toby on their property, when Toby was chosen by Chaianne as her wish horse. Craig and Karen have looked after Toby from the time he was picked up from Taree until he joined Chaianne in Tamworth.

Craig presented Toby to Chaianne at the 'Make A Wish Foundation Trolley Race' fundraiser in Port Macquarie. There the local linedancers joined in the celebration and entertained us with their dancing.

Craig is also the Youth Director for the Paint Horse Association of Australia and Chaianne's love of the Paint horse was known by Craig and other members of the Paint Horse Association.

The 'Make A Wish Foundation' is a fantastic organisation and all who are involved with the foundation are beautiful and fantastic people who enjoy helping a child realise their dream and smile.

Toby is just the sweetest boy, Toby quickly became a great friend to Chaianne and they spend a lot of time together either walking around the paddock, Chaianne is always talking to Toby or Chaianne, just grooming and patting him.

Hopefully, one day we will see Chaianne confident enough to ride Toby in the show ring.

Halfblind

 

Half Blind is just the sweetest boy. Given to Chaianne as a gift from Don and Marea Burke, Half Blind found his way to Chaianne's heart in a heart beat! The quietest nature and keen sense of loyalty, Chaianne and half Blind will be friends for many years.

Half Blind is by Best Western and out of Burkes baby.
