GLENCOE FOUNDATION MARES
Perfection as she was always known (Lingi Perfection only for registration purposes) was foaled in June 1950. By the Thoroughbred Sire Double Buzz and from a station mare Judy, who had won flag, bending races and other novelty events during the 1940s, but it is not clear if Judy was ever drafted. She was used extensively for mustering, was a great mount for women. also children and appeared to be of mainly thoroughbred.
When in 1948, Double Buzz (Heroic/The Buzzard) was injured during the breaking-in process, in preparation for a racing career, it was decided by Frank Glasser and his brother-in-law, Jack Cross, to breed several of their station mares to the horse. Perfection was of the very 1st foals from these matings that produced several campdraft winners for the Glassers – including Maroo who won a Warwick Gold Cup and Chinchilla Grandfather Clock, but never produced a live foal. By the time she was a six year old, Perfection was already ‘drafting successfully. In 1958, Frank travelled as far north as Mt Isa, and then in 1959 he and son Max travelled to Bourke and Brewarrina in NSW. It was the Australian Championship Horse Sports, and it was here that Perfection won the Juvenile Draft Championship with Max in the saddle, and then went on to win the Australian Championship Campdraft, beating the immortal Abbey into second place. Perfection also placed 5th in the Warwick Gold Cup in 1959.Perfection as she was always known (Lingi Perfection only for registration purposes) was foaled in June 1950.
Perfection went on to win in excess of 130 campdrafts in a career that spanned the years of 1956 to the late 1960s. During that time it was not unusual for Perfection to win three drafts in the one day – the open with Frank in the saddle, the Juvenile with his daughter Beryl riding and the Ladies with the wonderful May Thompson piloting her. Perfection also won many Led Mare Competitions, usually at Campdrafts where they were judged as a type most likely to breed stock horses and it was not uncommon to see 30 or more mares line up for this event.
In 1972 Perfection at the age of 22 years presented the family with her one and only foal – Perfect – also by a Double Buzz colt. Perfect went on to have a reasonably successful campdraft career, given that it was sparodic.
When you look through the bloodlines of the mares at Glencoe these days, you will find 13 mares and fillies carrying direct bloodlines to this grand old mare. Our Sire – Glencoe Abstract carries the bloodlines of Perfection on his dams side and Abbey on the Sires side – a combination of those 1st and 2nd placegetters in Brewarrina in 1959!
Perfect – Reg No. 30601
The only foal produced by the great campdraft mare Perfection, was foaled on 22/2/1972 from a 22 year old mare – perhaps she should have been named ‘Coincidence!’. Broken-in as a three year old by Max Glasser, this mare won a Maiden campdraft at her first start. During her career Perfect did not get the opportunities she deserved, due to family committments with stud cattle, however she won several progressives and placed in several big Opens, including the big Toogoolawah Open in 1987. In turn Perfect has had a big influence on our breeding programme, producing 5 foals for us – 4 fillies and 1 gelding. The gelding – Durack, was sold at Dalby for $5,500 in 1997 and won 2 cut outs and placed in 4 drafts from 12 starts. Of her fillies we have Perfects Patrol – who has produced 9 foals for us – four fillies all retained; Glencoe Drovers Dream – the Dam of our resident sire Glencoe Abstract and Glencoe Wantabe, who sold for $9,000 at Dalby; Perfects Remedy a winner at led and working classes, drafted well and has had her first foal; and Perfects Portrait – her last foal , who has now produced three foals for us. All in all Perfect has played a major part in our breeding programme.
Little Jay – Reg No. 50028
By My Abbey, was a great little mare, winning hack classes, before turning to campdrafting as a 7 year old. Jay was a great mare, winning several Progressives and placing in some really big Opens. Including the Bayer Classic at Walcha in 1988 and placing in both the Progessive and Grandfather Clock Open at Chinchilla in 1994. She then went on to produce three lovely fillies by Kirkbys Stud Remedy (all retained) and a colt – Jays Justabuzz – who sold for $7,000 at the 2002 Dalby ASH Sale. In 2002 she lost a colt foal – full brother to Justabuzz, so retired to a life of leisure. Little Jay was put to sleep in Autumn 2005 at 29 years of age and all three fillies from her are breeding very well.
PERFECTS PATROL (Reg. No. 131164)-Born 7/12/1986.
Known as “Patty”
A home bred mare from the successful campdraft mare “Perfect” and by another great campdraft winner “Patrol Chief” (by Commandant).This mare has been a great breeder for us and all fillies have been retained. Her first colt foal by Kirkbys Stud Remedy, was sold to Bill Moody of Toowoomba, and her next colt foal by 4HU Volant was a victim of snakebite. The next colt-by Dr. Jekyll-Glencoe Simply Red, sold to the Walker Family of Kyabram at the 2002 ASH National Sale. Her next foal was Glencoe Cruiser, a gelding sold at 15 months, for the equal top price at the Toowoomba “Select for the Future Sale” in 2004. Patty was sold in 2009- we have kept her bloodlines going.
ESSINGTON CAROMELLO (Reg.No.218925)-Born-6/8/1984.

Another gelding, Glencoe Essence, sold in Albury in 2006. In 2007 “Cammy” presented us with an outstanding dark buckskin filly-Glencoe Issycoe- not bad at 23 years! Shine, Essence and Issycoe are all by Glencoe Abstract-Issycoe(pictured) has been retained. Cammy has been retired from foaling duties and has become our “Nanny Mare”, teaching the yearlings manners!!

JAYS BARBIE DOLL (Reg. No. 125284)-Born 1/12/1993
Barbie was the first of three full sisters from the show and campdraft winning mare “Little Jay”, sired by “Kirkbys Stud Remedy”. Remedy was sired by Warrenbri Romeo who needs no introduction, and from the Royal Show and campdraft winning mare-Kirkbys Stud Tonic. Barbie was shown with success as a yearling and consequently sold as 2 year old at the Dalby ASH Sale in 1995 for $4,5000-good money at the time. We always regretted selling her, tracked her down and she returned to our ownership in December 1999. During the period Barbie was not in our ownership, we have reason to believe that she had 2 foals, and we were recently contacted by a young lass re the registering one of those progeny. Since returning to us, Barbie has been ridden by Cassandra, and given a couple of campdraft starts-she worked her cattle exceptionally well. In 2003, Barbie delivered her 1st foal for us at Glencoe, and has now delivered a live foal for us for 10 years!

Champion Led Mare at Toowoomba Royal in 2006 fromover 100 yearling, fillies and mares.

“Image” is just that- the very image of her grandmother, Little Jay, who after a very successfull career in the show ring, took to campdrafting with great ability and enthusiasm. Jay placed second in the Bayer Classic Open Campdraft at Walcha in 1988, in the best campdrafting company. She continued to win and place in several ‘drafts until retired in 1992. At her last draft start in 1992, at Chinchilla, Jay placed in three rounds of the Novice draft, got round money in all three rounds of the Grandfather Clock Open Draft, finally placing 5th.

She has returned a positive preg test to the exciting new young stallion, Hoaths Peter, currently competing with much promise by Marilyn McCullough.
GLENCOE MERCEDES. (Reg. No. 192511). 20/10/09
Mercedes was the pick foal of her year drop, however she has never been what we refer to as “a good doer.” We are unsure if she had eaten lantana or similar, but despite many veterinary tests, we have been unable to ascertain the problem. In the last 12 months this mare has lifted considerably. Mercedes is a full sister to Lachlan Glassers’ Glencoe Aurion, Terry Snows’ Glencoe Caddy and Libby Harrimans’ Glencoe Maxima- all of whom are proving to be above average mares.
