Our only purebred foal for 2014. Warlow TK (otherwise know as Warlow the Bruce) finally waves goodbye and travels down to Victoria to join his new owner Jodie Forster. Jodie has been very patient. She decided in 2013 that she wanted a Django gelding out of either Siena TK or Ymkje Z. At that stage neither mare was in foal so it was a nervous wait until Siena was confirmed in foal. Next the 11 month wait to see if she would produce a colt. Much to everyone’s excitement she did just that.
Sadly however for Siena things did not go well and we lost her to post foaling complications. Georgina, the foster mare, came to the rescue and has done a wonderful job of raising Bruce to be a strapping young colt. And still Jodie waited patiently in Victoria for the next stage, the gelding. This time the weather intervened with us having unprecedented rain and paddocks and yard knee deep in mud. Eventually it did dry out and Bruce sailed through his operation and was quickly fit to travel. Whilst we are excited for Jodie there is a definite tinge of sadness seeing Bruce leave as he is our last connection with Siena who we bred and was a special part of our herd. A sweet tempered and affectionate mare who held onto our hearts.
