A versatile family pony, The Highland are great all rounders, turning their hoof to eventing and show jumping, dressage, pony club they make fantastic mounts for the adult rider. A sturdy pony that is both an easy keeper and a good doer, they also cross beautifully with Thoroughbred, Stock Horse, Quarter Horse or Australian Pony.

Rocky Creek Ranch in Chittering is home to the boutique Appaloosa stud of Mel and Olly Dugay, who purchased the property with the dream of establishing a small Appaloosa stud that concentrated on preserving the proven bloodlines of the breed that displayed traditional characteristics, including trainability, hardiness and agility.

Their stallion, the 13 year old APS Justa Lil Dream does not stand at pubic stud. He has his own small band of mares that meet Mel and Olly’s standards for reproducing the desired qualities. The 2022 foals from these matings are all granddaughters of Mega Dream. The stud now has their three mares due to foal in September 2023 and will offer two of these for sale. They will be registered with the Australian Appaloosa Association.

Olly has also been breeding cattle and have their first Waygu x bull on the ground this year.

Things never seem to slow down, with Norm busy seeding and spreading chicken poop on the paddocks and making the farm look its best for many years. Fencing is being replaced, and as Nancy said, “You know when you have been on the same property for a long time when you start replacing fencing. All the holes were hand dug originally but now Gary Simmons to the rescue, as he is ramming them in for us old folks.”

The Noran cattle breeding has become more serious as they have just implanted five frozen embryos into their Maine Anjou cows and looks like three have held, so exciting times.

Nancy will be judging at the Australasian Arabian Breeders Coalition - The International Championships in NSW in February then a few weeks later is off to NZ to judge there. Norm is accompanying Nancy as her official ‘baggage carrier’…….so he says.

Liz Tollarzo imported Nemo from Northern Spain (near Portugal) in 2021 as a three year old just backed purebred Lusitano colt. Wandiera Park Dressage have bred a small number of quality Warmblood horses for many years, with many achieving multi championships in both breed and dressage competitions up to and including FEI level. Liz feels that the agility, compact conformation, hardiness and intelligence of the Lusitano pared with their incredible trainability and desire to please makes them the perfect horse for most disciplines.

Liz has allowed Nemo time after his arrival in late 2021 to mature; he is now five years old and ready to progress in his riding education, which will be aimed towards competitive FEI level dressage.

Nemo’s first foal is due at the end of this year, which will be available for purchase out of one

of Liz’s best warmblood mares by Royal Hit! This year will be his first time offered for public stud for fresh collected, chilled or frozen semen only. Nemo is the only currently APSL approved Lusitano stallion in Western Australia where the assessor stated he was certainly a young stallion with an outstanding temperament.

Having owned horses all her life

A last minute decision to take their 4 year old stallion Carlsberg E to Melbourne paid off for Rick Dabner and Eve Jarvis from Team Equistar. Entered into the IRT Young Eventing Horse class at the Melbourne International 3DE in June, Carlsberg E not only won the 4 year old Young Event Horse, but went on to be crowned Champion of Champions from all age groups. Beautifully ridden by Olivia Shore, the 16.2hh Warmblood stallion produced two perfect rounds in front of judges Barry Roycroft, Pru Barrett and Sharon Ridgeway to make it a very worthwhile trip across the Nullarbor for the Wanneroo based Team Equistar.

Carlsberg E is standing at public stud for the first time this season, joining Team Equistar’s other stallion, the Australian Warmblood Afrodizijak E, who is sired by the Olympic great and sire of many international showjumpers Arko III. www.teamequistar.com

Building Karen Nicoletto Show Horses

Hidden away behind a stunning black fence line in the Swan Valley you’ll find the property where owner Karen Nicoletto is building a dream for the future.

Combining a breeding and training program, along with a full time job and redeveloping a property is a mammoth task that Karen handles with a smile and boundless energy. The property consists of four hectares (ten acres) that Karen is redeveloping from scratch - completely reorganising the fencing to have horse-safe fences, yards and paddocks for foals and installing irrigation for the property. Everything has been done with a business plan in mind for future coaching and horse management.

It was pivotal for Karen to have a working arena and round yard, so these were the first things addressed. Adding to the existing six horse stable were the two purpose built freestanding 4m x 6m stables with yards for mares and foals or visiting horses. These are unique in that they have open mesh from chest height to the roof on all four sides, ensuring ventilation, good sight to other horses and are of a size to keep horses comfortable.

Karen stands the stallion ‘Heez Zippin Hot’ - a senior Quarter Horse - who is now retired to stud where he continues to produce top progeny that are winning Australia wide. Breeding one of her own each year, Karen has retained a few young horses for her showing endeavours, whilst other progeny and grand progeny are competing successfully around Australia.

By necessity, the property has been designed for easy-care and the safe handling and moving of horses as sometimes, when you work full time, horse-work is done in the dark! A time-saving feature of the property are the green wheelie bins filled with hay and positioned in the lane-way of each horse’s paddock, making feeding an easy task on those cold mornings and dark nights.

The roomy paddocks are set out in a grid design with lane-way access to all. The paddocks are filled with an assortment of horses, from foals to some of Karen’s retired performance Appaloosas and Quarter Horses. It is a great working property set-up that simplifies handling and management of horses. Still to be achieved is a wash-bay, tie up

and hay storage area and a revamp of the stables and other infrastructure.

Operating a stud is always made easier when you are situated next door to a vet, and in Karen’s case, Valley Equine Veterinary Centre is on her doorstep should the need arise. The breeding side of the business is a positive aspect of the stud as she loves the handling of the young horses, which are started at home with some then sent over East for advanced training and showing as the Western scene is much bigger over there.

A long term trainer/assessor and teacher at Edmond Rice College in Bindoon, where her work involves VET, Ag Science, APS and equine education, Karen’s ultimate aim for the property is to create a learning centre that will help equestrians and school students achieve their Equestrian Australia Intro Horse Management and Intro Riding and other equine accreditations, as well as conduct clinics and continuing with her coaching and training of the young horses. Another aspect that will be included in the master plan is Equine Assisted Therapy as Karen is a qualified Equine Assisted Facilitator and it is easy to see how her love of horses and love of teaching can all come together so her well-laid ‘dream
