Visiting our Wilga Park Kids ...
We were once again very proud to be involved in the Morgan Displays in the Breed Expo village at the EKKA (Royal Brisbane Show). It was a highly successful 10 day promotion for the Morgan Horse, showcasing the Breed to thousands of people.
For the first time, ever, a pure Morgan was shown at the EKKA ... though in Dilute classes not Morgan Classes. Lea-Anne and Craig Willett can congratulate themselves and their palomino boy, Wilga Park Jacobinia (Ragtime Oro Blanco X Eagleview Skybeau) on reaching a milestone in Morgan History in Australia. We take our hats off to these two ... they do not lose an opportunity to promote the breed to as many as possible.
A photo story is below:
Shortly after the EKKA we headed to the Gold Coast Show. It was a wonderful day, as we caught up with two of our babies, full brothers Wilga Park Jalapeno and Wilga Park Jacobinia. It is so satisfying to see our babies giving pleasure to their owners.
Cortez, in his usual style, brought home not only the Supreme Champion Buckskin sash, but the Grand Champion Dilute and Supreme Champion Morgan Exhibit. He certainly is a favourite in the Show Ring.
Greg was Cortez's rider on the day. Together they won the ridden Dilute and the ridden Morgan classes. A wonderful achievment, especially as Greg had not been in the saddle for a number of years.
We have been having a lovely time lately catching up with our Wilga Park Kids ... not just JJ (Jacobinia) and PJ (Jalapeno) at the shows.
We headed north and spent some time with Shelby and her two Wilga Park Kids, Golden Maya and Linden ...
And then dropped in to say G'day to Lisa and Tim Wong and their new babies, and Wilga Park Lisianthus (Linden's older sister), who has grown into a beautiful young mare ...
We also headed south to Warwick to catch up with Wilga Park GoldenSolidago and Amanda McGill. Amanda was enjoying a training session with Solidago when we arrived. Solidago is going beautifully under saddle and Amanda can take the credit for all of his training. They even showed off their new trick for us.
As well as going visiting, we have had some wonderful times with visitors to Wilga Park. Here are some photos of the fun times we have been having at home.
