If only I wasn't flying down!

What have you got?

If only I was going...I'd probably get the 10kg of talc... (you mix it with glue and use it as putty and it sands easily!) 😉 P.S. I have to ask: if you put Darmoor talc on a horse for some reason, does it make the horse moor dark ? 😉

Looking forward to catching up again 🙂

Good luck guys.

It’s so lovely to have Darkmoor Mona Lisa home at last! 

She’s da Vinci’s last foal for us so she’s a bit special. Mona Lisa is out of Aarunga Gina and we’ll be keeping her for future breeding.

BIG NEWS!! 

We’ve been keeping this to ourselves for a while now…but now that it has actually happened, it’s time to let everyone know. 

Our beautiful young stallion Darkmoor da Vinci has been gelded! 

He’s finished his breeding commitments and is in the very capable hands of Charles Sturt University at Wagga while he recovers from surgery. 

da Vinci is off to an absolutely fantastic new home in a few weeks - we honestly couldn’t have asked for better. 

Keep your eyes peeled - he and his new owner will be out and about at shows in a few months once they’ve had a chance to get to know one another. We’ll let them announce their new partnership when they’re ready. 

For now, we’ll just say we’re so proud to have had this beautiful cheeky character of a horse in our care. Weve had a lot of fun with him and while we’ll miss him, we’re delighted he’s off to make someone else supremely happy… 

Best of luck big guy - well see you out in the show ring soon!

😲 Ooooh, Koko was one of his last girlfriends

Oh no! The most beautiful of stallions! Can’t believe he’s a gelding. But if he has the best of lives in front of him then that’s lovely. And thank goodness I have a gorgeous son of his! Are any of his sons still colts?

Awww sad to see him move on. Hope he's happy in his new home. Good luck big man x

A big decision but he has a wonderful life ahead of him. Congratulations to all involved 🙂

He is just so gorgeous. I’m very lucky to have a relative of his. Little William is growing fast and almost fell asleep having a cuddle with me this afternoon.

Cant wait to see him out under saddle with his new owner. Congratulations to them on the purchase of a lovely gelding and well done to you guys for bringing him on so well thus far 🙂

Hope the new owner has been informed of our special relationship 😜

Congratulations to the new owners. I would have loved to have him or one of his offspring though lol he's been my favourite 😍

Wow. Impressive. Good luck!

He’s 2 stones lighter 😂 Congrats to the new owner and I’m sure he will be missed at Darkmoor.

So pleased for all involved. Well done.🎉

Good luck in your new life, big man. xxx

I'm so excited to see him in his new home. He will be so loved!!

Wishing him an exciting future!

Beautiful boy

As I’m in SA, I’m wondering if you can tell me if she is to have a career as a riding horse? As I would love to see her out and about. 😊
