HAPPY ENDING 29/12/11

It is lovely to see horses go on from racing and end up in a good home.

Recently we were contacted by an owner, Kathryn, who had given

Crown Lea a new home over a year ago. She also had further news that

the mare was in foal and due anyday. This morning we received the

exciting news that Lea has had a little palomino filly, and both are doing

really well.

It is so nice to hear of happy endings like this!!

HARD AT WORK 23/12/1

It's a hard life being a foal. After breakfast one (milk), followed by breakfast

two (lucerne), Franklin decided a much needed rest was called for!!

NEW FACE AT THE STUD - 17/12/11

Yesterday we had Sister Akhapacs and her colt foal arrive at Glenferrie.

They settled in well last night and were put out into a paddock first thing

this morning. The foal 'Franklin', from De Beers is a few months old, and

already has a fantastic appetite, it is going to be lovely to watch him grow!

GOING FOR A GALLOP - 7/11/11

The first thing Lost Fong likes to do when he gets out of his stable is to go for

a good gallop in the paddock! It can be fun while leading other horses past him

to their paddocks, but who can refuse the boy a good run!!

BACK TO WINTER - 24/10/11

Today has seen a return to winter in the hills, we have gone from a weekend of quite warm

weather - the horses have all enjoyed the sunshine and having their rugs off - to a bitter

12 degrees, southerly blowing and rain! Rugs back on all round and some very excited

horses at the change in the weather!!

SPRING IS HERE!!! 17/10/11

Wow - spring is well and truly here this year! We have had an amazing growing season, with

bouts of sunshine and warmth, followed by more rain, then sunshine again!! The feed in the

paddocks is just amazing, the horses don't even want to come into their stables at night for

their dinner!!

LOW CLOUD 19/7/11

With the mornings being so cold we were greeted with the view of Kuitpo Forest

appearing out of low cloud this morning. As the sun rose the forest gradually became

visible from the clouds! Note: Kuitpo can be seen at the back of the photo, just peeking

out from the cloud, behind the first stand of trees.

BREAK IN THE WEATHER - 7/7/11

Today we finally had relief from three horrendous days of rain and gale winds, the horses

got to go out and enjoy their paddocks in some sunshine, although still cold! And while

putting the horses out we were all treated to arainbow, that finished in our front paddock

- now just to look for the pot of gold!!!

 FOLLOW THE LEADER - 24/6/11

Trying to take photos this morning in the paddocks I was followed by my faithful

companion, Ryan Balfour's Dubai Destination filly, who is really more like a large dog.

Affectionately known as Dee dee she is a very friendly filly, that likes to know all that is

going on in her paddock, and also tries very hard to be in ALL the photos!!

KEEPING WARM!! - 16/5

We recently weaned a foal at Glenferrie Stud and teamed her up with one of our old

retirees Joe. She has made a wonderful transition to being Miss Independant - and loves

to show off to all the other horses just how fast she can run. However she never likes

Joe to go TOO far away!!

SITTING DOWN ON THE JOB - 11/5

It's alright for SOME of us to sit down on the job!! Our dogs come out each morning to

supervise us putting the horses out - of course they must be tied up for safety. However

each of them feel there is no point not being comfortable - and quite happily lounge around

on the job. Below Oscar chilling back watching the goings on - and Cooper feeling it is

warmer up in the hay than on the ground!

WINTER HAS ARRIVED - 2/5

The rain has arrived, the mornings are usually around 2-3 degrees when we first start

outside - and although we still get lovely sunny days the mornings can start off cold and

misty. The horses gradually appear in the paddocks as the mist lifts and the sun breaks

through the clouds. Below the Consolidator filly looking for her friends!

THE SKY IS FALLING - 1/5

Putting the horses out this morning I was greeted with an amazing sight as the sun

rose, the clouds seemed to descend from the sky, to the point you felt you could reach

out and touch them! Had to grab a few quick pics!

CARROT KIDS - 1/5

We have two mares here from trainer David Balfour that are absolute carrot fiends - in

fact I call them my carrot slot machines. Pop in a carrot and watch them go!! The girls

ensure they are in prime position - 'just incase' - to receive another carrot after they

have been put in their paddock, and recieved 'their' respective carrot!! And honestly, who

could ignore those pleading faces!! Duchess of Avalon on the left, Saintly Spirit on the right.

BUSY, BUSY....BUSY!!!!! - 20/4

Glenferrie Stud has been going through an absolutley mad, busy period - not that we

are complaining!!! We have had  horses coming and going nearly everyday, in fact for a

while it seemed that they were just coming and not going, we recorded 40 horses at one

stage! To name a few those going have been Silvercitymiss, Actin'Snakey, Blue Prussian,

Dubai Dawn, Talented Beau, Tonlyn Spirit, Easy Tigers, Tee Rubble, Barter Time and

Kurrimine Miss.

Arriving at the stud - again to name a few! - have been Marryatville, Saintly Spirit,

Duchess of Avalon, Fager Son, Inbound, La Lista, Emerald Queen, Cosmic Commander,

Li'l Cashy and a heap of yearlings from Inflate, Face Value, Gallo Di Ferro and Lord Jim.

Phew!!!

TRAINING TIME - 20/4

We seem to have recieved an influx of yearlings and foals to be handled, branded,

microchipped etc. They have required from basic first time handling, to having feet

trimmed, wormed, rugged and just general day to day handson. Below is one of the

foals having her first halter lesson with mum watching patiently in the adjoining stable.

LATEST FASHION ACCESSORY - THE FLY MASK!!! - 15/1

The flys, the flys, THE FLYS!!! The last few months have resulted in a ridiculous

number of flys to the point we havegone out and got all the horses fly veils to relieve

them from the onslaught during the day. Masked crusaders, Kurrimine Miss, from

trainer Peter Macdonald, owner I.Whittaker, and her yearling friend from owner G.Field,

were  more than willing to model the latest fashion at the stud while partaking in

morning mutual scratchies!

STUD VISITORS - 14/1

It was lovely to see trainer Peter Macdonald, and owner Ian Whittaker and his family,

visit the stud today to see their horses.

SEASONS GREETINGS FROM GLENFERRIE STUD! - 13/1

Apologies must be made from all involved here at Glenferrie Stud for not updating this

site for far too long! Over the silly season we had some major technical difficulties with

the computer, and lost the website in the formatting stage! However all is now rectified

so you can look forward to the regular updates and photos we like to provide! We hope

christmas and the new year was enjoyed by all!!!

PENCELARON STRETCHES HIS LEGS! - 21/11

Pencelaron, from trainer David Balfour, shows why he enjoys his paddock so much

when he stays! After being stabled at night, the boy loves to go for an early morning

gallop before settling into grazing for the day!

Amazing the difference 5 months makes!! The two yearlings from trainer Peter Macdonald,

Earthtremor and Kurrimine Miss have grown so much it is unbelievable! Have a look at

these photos!

THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR - 17/10

Sometimes here at Glenferrie we get horses that just get along so well they end up

sharing a paddock, and enjoying having a companion at the same time! From trainer

David Balfour we have Home and Away and a Dubai Destination filly who are the best

of mates, never even lay ears back at each other. The two spend their days joined at

the shoulder, having mutual scratchings and grazing nose to nose. Perfect horse bliss!

THE HORSE WITH THE BIG PERSONALITY - 17/7

We asked one of Larry's owners, John Miller, for some action shots of Happy as Larry

and have received some brilliant pics of Larry winning at Gawler earlier in the year. It is

fantastic to see the horses doing well at the track and we welcome any photos from

owners or trainers of their horses on a winning streak! Photos courtesy of Atkins

Photography.
