Hey everyone! I've taken about 98745982745 pictures recently and just not updated any of them, so get ready for a SERIOUS influx. I'll start with my Brumby pasture! I've been working closely with the Victorian Brumby Alliance, and they've granted me the deeds to enough land to run an entire herd of Brumbies. Over the past few months, the land has been seeded with equine-friendly grasses and watered every day to bring up enough pasture to sustain them. On top of that, I'm providing good quality hay to maintain the pasture for as long as possible.
The herd will have 5.5 acres to themselves, with laneways between them and my other paddocks. For now, I'm leaving all of my horses on the other side of the road until we have all of the Brumbies checked for infectious diseases and viruses.
There's a barn for shelter (even though these hardy beasts likley won't need it, it may help them adjust to domestic life) and troughs for water, which I will supplement with vitamins and minerals.
I've been on a few trips in Bogong High Plains and Alpine National Park to choose a herd, and I think I have my eye on one, finally! There's a coloured stallion and lead mare, therefore much of the herd have gorgeously loud colouring. The lead mare is also a horse I'd very much like to train, as she's an exceptional type with likely lots of draught in her.
That's all for the wild horse update!
Bonus: My moo-cows in the house paddock because they think they're dogs.
