Codie Glasser with Glencoe Maybe Better, Dec, 2014. Codie handled Maybe as a baby foal Christmas, 2013, and continued on with him 12 months later. A real gentleman, never a “colts” colt.

What a surprise! Kylie Blanchs’ mare presented with a pretty filly foal, by Glencoe Abstract- the first he has ever sired this colour!  I think the mare had quite a bit to do with the colour.


Max, Kylie and her Dad, Doug Blanch checking out our colt foal by Hoaths Peter from the Glencoe Last Word mare, Illyria Blue. 10 foals this season- 6 colts and only 4 fillies. Two mares slipped their babies during the dry. This little chap is going to be a tall boy, lots of leg under him.


Great lot of visitors on the Thoroughbred bus tour, most enjoyable.


Max riding 3 year old Glencoe Answer- this pair won the Working ASH class at a local Ag Show. She is by Glencoe Last Word from a Quidong Absalom mare, Glencoe Clue. This mare, according to Max is one of the smartest horses he has ridden, just wishes he was 30 years younger!


Max “posing” with his trophies. 1964 Warwick Gold Cup, 1967 Chinchilla Grandfather clock and his 1st ever campdraft trophy, won in 1953, at 11 years of age.


So happy with this advert, featuring a photo that I took of Glencoe Craftsman, August, 2015.

      So Crafty returned home in May to be totally bored, and annoyed the daylights out of us by banging his feeder, constantly.  We were thrilled in July, when Lachlan and Melinda headed south to Bawley Point, via Canberra, to deliver Craftsman to his new home with Terry and Ginette Snow, at beautiful Willinga Park.  He has settled in well with Robert, Linda and staff in the amazing new complex, and is the current love of Linda’s life.  Max and I were privileged to travel down to Willinga in August to check it all out- what a wonderful complex in the making!  Craftsman is so very fortunate to find himself with such wonderful, caring people, in the most amazing place.  He has since gone on to prove that he is quite capable of mixing it in the south, still winning the big ones for his new owners.


 Glencoe Craftsman posing with the new love of his life, Lynda Patullo, in his new home at Wilinga Park, on the south coast of NSW.

      Other horses to fly the flag for us at the 2015 nationals were Willinga Park with Glencoe Posh winning, and Glencoe Caddie, placing- both by Glencoe Last Word.  Last Word was also the sire of the very successful mare, Glencoe Chick Chat, who was Res Champion Led Mare over 5 years, and took her owner, Abbey Webb, on to win both the Novice and Open ASHLA awards with a stunning 98 points out of 100! Abbey also showed Glencoe Uniquer, also by Last Word, as is Kim Yarrows’ gelding Glencoe High Roller, who placed.  Five progeny by our dear Last Word,shown with success- well done to him and the owners!


 Posing proudly after winning not only the Novice section, but the Open ASHLA Award at the 2015 ASH Nationals, are 18 year old Abbey Webb and her lovely 7 year old mare, Glencoe Chick Chat.

Not to be outdone, Glencoe Abstract had three progeny competing,and whilst our Glencoe Craftsman had his share of success, Chris Wares’ Wungum Citcom won and placed on numerous occasion. Niagara Jewel was another  Abstract progeny to be nominated by Brooklyn Symes.


 A very tired group, photo taken at 11.30 pm at the 2015 ASH Nationals!
Glencoe Craftsman, ridden by Jim Daley, posed with the Judge, Kelli Handford, after winning the Champion Pleasure Hack.  It was very cold, and it had been a very long day for everyone!

     A mare we bred and sold to Kayleen Sutton at our 2009 Sale- Jays Slick Chick- produced two winners at the Nationals. They were Anna Elders beautiful and much decorated mare , Sheady Show Time and Kayleens’ Sheady Smart Chick- big congrats to these ladies, and it makes us so proud to be a part of the breeding of these lovely mares.

     Lachlan Glasser and Melinda Fanning drafted some lovely mares for us this last season- Molly Gunn, Glencoe Izzyco, Glencoe Evolution- getting to finals on several occasions.  All by Abstract. Lachlan has 4 yr old G. Aurion and 3 yr old G. Answer- both by Last Word, working well.


 Melinda Fanning and Molly Gunn finaling at the Glenmorgan Draft.


 Lachlan Glasser and Glencoe Izzyco putting up a good run at Glenmorgan.

     Meanwhile in the western Districts of Victoria, Jason Tonisson has Glencoe Rembrandt, now 4 years old, working well under saddle and playing polo. This colt is by KS Remedy from one of our Quidong Absalom mares, Perfects Portrait, who has bred so well for us.


Over in the Western districts of Victoria, Janson Tonisson and The 4 year old Colt, Glencoe Rembrandt are winning their share of the Championships, and Remy is also playing polo with enthusiasm.

Over in Western Australia we have Narelle Bettinni mustering on her Glencoe Last Word mare, and this is classic photo of Narelle and Mark- I just love it, the colours are remarkable.


 Mustering on de Grey station, near Port Hedland are Narelle and Mark Bettini. On the left is Narelle, riding her mare by Glencoe Last Word- Narelle says she loves this mare, and we love this photo.

Glencoe Even Better took some 12 days to travel from Glencoe Lodge to Kalgoorlie, where Shane Day took delivery of him for his wife, Amanda.  “Dribble” as he has been nicknamed for a thin dribble of white that runs down his face, was just 12 months old when he left here for his big adventure, but the good news is that he travelled very well.  This colt is to be therapy for Amanda, as she recovers from treatment she is currently undergoing in Reno.


 Just 12 months old, and Glencoe Even Better ( by Glencoe Craftsman) was getting ready for his trip across the Nullabor, for his new home with former ASH Director, Amanda Day and her husband.  It took 11 days for him to make it to Kalgoorlie, he was tired but had travelled well.

     So far we have had a pretty good foaling season with 6 fillies and 4 colts on the ground and two older mares yet to deliver. Both mares bred to outside horses have delivered fillies for us- one by Westons Yakka, and the other by KSRebound- both are outstanding, as is the filly by Glencoe Craftsman.

      It will be the last foal for our Jays Barbie Doll, who turns 22 on Dec 1st.  We sold her at Dalby ASH Sale in Dec 1995, bought her back in Dec 1999, during that period she had two foals.  She has now given us some wonderful foals- 12 in all, this will be the 13th, and last.  We have retained two lovely fillies from her- we are sure she will relish the role of Nannie mare for the rest of her time.  We are breeding to 4 outside horses this year, and have ordered filly foals, wish us luck!

     We were fortunate to win two services to horses we admired- the Stones’ Riverview Topfire and Dan and Jenny Redgens, KS Credit.  Also breeding to Doongara Manpower and Marilyn McCulloughs, lovely boy Peter.


 New foals just a few days old.

 Quiz by Kirkby Stud Rebound- a filly.

 Max felt privileged to be invited to judge the Barnes Trophy at the 2015 Warwick Campdraft in October.  He is pictured presenting the trophy to the winner, Steve Comiskey, seated on his beautiful winning mare, Delta.  Also pictured is Leanne Comiskey.  A great couple of days watching and judging, some of the best quality, and talented horses,horsemen and women in  Australia- a privilege, indeed.


     Whilst the seasons here can’t be labeled as bad, it has kept us on our toes.  Feeding our mares big round bales of beautiful oaten hay, as the grass has begun to take off after an initial 37 mls late in October, and another 65 mls the first week of November, has kept them in good health, if not rolling fat- the foals are doing very nicely.

     We wish all breeders and friends a happy Christmas, and may 2016 deliver health, happiness for both man and beasts.
