We are thrilled to announce that the stunning mare, Disco Patricia, from Meshoppen, Wyoming County, Pennsylvania, USA, has presented her owner Ellen Palillo with a beautiful colt foal. "Buster" is now two months old and is a stunning specimen of a Morgan Horse. Ellen is still stuggling to find the most suitable registered name for this lovely lad. Disco Patricia (Patti) and Ellen were Reining partners prior to Patti becoming pregnant.
Linda Shore and Cortez have had on successful Western Dressage Clinic and another is planned for August; this time at Tewantin/Noosa Pony Club grounds. There is a lot of interest being shown in the Clinics, and in particular the demonstrations that Linda and Cortez will give - at Medium level (with a few canter pirouhettes thrown in as well).
One of Cortez's daughters is also becoming a well known face! Wilga Park Chambourcin is the 'Face' of Black Horse Clothing. Gillian Wooldridge, of Shibui Morgan Stud & Black Horse Clothing has diversified Chambourcin's talents, and as well as performing in the Dressage arena, Champy is a highly successful 'Model' for Gill's Clothing business.
We are very excited about some of our 2009 babies. Three of them have been started under saddle recently.
Nila Latimer has had Wilga Park Chancellor started and after a few rides, he is now having a break to soak up all the knowledge he acquired at the Trainer's stable. He will come back into work in a few months time to learn to be a dressage horse. Chancellor proved to have a very mature mind and was certainly ready for the experience. Nila has her sights firmly set on FEI dressage for her Morgan boys.
Lea-anne Willett & Wilga Park Jacobinia (aka JJ or Jay) have been having some instruction and learning heaps together. They have had a lot of fun along the way. JJ has shown he is totally unflappable and has given Lea-anne so much confience, they will make their ridden debut at a fun Dilute Show day in September. Jacobinia is an old hand at going out and about as they have attended many a show during the season, bringing home the ribbons.
Amanda and Solidago are taking it easy and going slowly with their time together. Amanda is a self taught (for want of a better expression) horsewoman, learning from all the best horsemen, taking in what she thinks will work and discarding what doesn't suit.
It is a credit to Solidago's temperament and to Amanda's quiet confidence that they have achieved this together. Amanda has started Solidago completely unaided. Amanda and Sol are enjoying every step of the way.
Wilga Park Liana (RanchBoss Cortez x Haymeron Park Ruby Jane) is being prepared for her long trip to KOZI Morgans in North Queensland. Liana will join John and Kelli Kozicka's herd of Morgans to one day produce beautiful Morgans for the top end of Queensland.
Liana grows in confidence every time she goes out and about away from the herd. Whilst Greg was giving Liana some float loading training, Tamarack decided he wanted to join in. Tamarack (RanchBoss Cortez x Mt Tawonga Marrella) was extremely interested in getting on to that float. He seems to love doing interesting things.
The gorgeous bundle of fluff, Wilga Park Kachina (RanchBoss Cortez x Mt Tawonga Tabitha) also got in on the act and enjoyed some lead training.
Some photos below of these and other happenings at Wilga Park.
