On Saturday 12th January we drove out to Mitchell Park Farm which is a 5 star equestrian facility located in Locksley, Victoria to pick up the newest family member.
Welcome home, Cruiser!
Cruiser is a a mighty big boy, standing approximately 17 hands, is 16 year old Thoroughbred, born in 2004 with a very successful race history. In his racing prime Cruiser had come 3rd in the Caulfield Cu and has travelled to Dubai to race. Cruiser has served his race owners and trainer very well over the years.
Now retired, Cruiser has spent some quality time at Mitchell Park Farm and has now found his forever home with Kaylee. Both Cruiser and Kaylee pair up quite well and we already know their partnership will grow.
A four hour road trip to pick Cruiser up ( with a couple of stops along the way) and we finally arrived, he travelled perfectly and we would not have expected anything less from a horse of his calibre, after all travelling internationally is a big deal for any horse.
Now for the new beginning's, the new home and new surroundings, including two new friends. Every horse needs some time to adjust and get used to their new home, the settling in process is now underway.
Thanking Rod and Holly at Mitchell Park Farm for all their 5 star attention and care they have given to Cruiser and to Kaylee. The dedication, care, time and work these guys put in is truly a blessing.
We'll be posting more about Cruisers' and Kaylees' journey, so please continue to drop by to check in on how these two are going.
We'll also do a bit of a catch up on our other family members, along with some Brumby news.
Until next time,
Cheers from the HEW team!
