    Hi guys, just thought i'd put that dad's just bought a new 11 month old gelding from QLD. From what we have been told he is the first of these lines to come to WA. His name is Highbrows Cattillac AKA Puss. His sire is the famous cutting horse Rackateer Cat and his mother is Whisper to the Cook with the lines from the Roc O Lena mare. Will put some pics up very shortly but I just wanted to know if what we were told is true. If he is the first of those lines here???[:-confused2-:]

    Could very well be, idont think we have much of those lines in Vic either, but as he is a gelding and cant reproduce the lines dont really mean much untill he performs.

    Hope you have heaps of fun and success with him.

    Hi

    Your gelding would be the first of the yearlings of Racketeer Cats to WA, obviously there are others with similar mare lines.

    I know the people where he came from. Are you planning on cutting with him?

    There are more new lines heading to WA.

    I have heard that a well bred mare from QLD infoal to Nat Grand Champ, An Obsession (imp) with a filly foal by Got To Be Tenachous (imp) is on its way to WA.
    Congrats to that very lucky person. That is the only An Obsession foal to be outside the syndicate.

    The WA halter industry seems to be catching on as to what there is over here.

    i am 99% sure that Wedgefield Holdings Pty Ltd from Dunsborouh has one or two Cat's babies from last season and this season as well. As to Roc o lenas, there are quite a few around. As to Wagon Cooks -not as many. But you got a very nicely bred for work gelding[:-grin-:]

    And another halter bred horse heading to WA.

    A Kid Cross filly.

    Seems to be a real market for top halter horses over there at the moment.

    Hi RP. I saw your little fella on another forum. He is very nice. I bet you cant wait to get him. Im looking forward to getting my new purchase as well. Time goes so slow.

    The new horses are all owned by Stockie members, not all the same ones though.
    They will make them selves known when they want.
    I found out from the stud owners.

    Interesting the Kid Cross filly though. Certain poster that has got her, had a thing against halter horses. Funny how they change. Seems thats where the market demand is at the moment.

    I look forward to seeing more of your new boy. You have my email if you want to send pics that way.

    We have more coming to Vic too. Curtis QH has already moved here and Millsqh is soon to come. things looking up down here too. More quality halter horses. At the moment the working bred stuff is very hard to sell here, but plenty looking for halter. Fashions. LOL

    LOL watch out JSP, their all out to get you. LOL

    I would say the halter scene in WA is about to get very exciting. Who knows, a WA Nat halter Champ? Prob wont be long.

    Nothing like new blood to raise the standards and make you aim for higher for yourselves.

    I know I love the fact that 2 of Aus biggest are coming to vic, many dont, but I feel it will give the Vic halter horses a boost as it is well know that the East Coast/ NSW have the best. Apart for the exceptions.

    Good competition keeps you honest.

    Don't know why so many studs are heading to Vic weather is so average, but wish Curtis & Mills all the best, also a very successful Amateur performance stud

    HM, they are heading down as they are sick of the weather and drought conditions where they are. Curtis has been here a couple of months already.
    Mills have bought a great irrigated lucern property at Shepparton.
    Basically we are drought proof here all year round. They are sick of the dry or the total wet up there and all feed comes out of a bag or bale were her excact words.
    Thats what Rob told me anyhow. I cant wait for them to get here, she makes the best coffee.

    We also have some of the biggest shows now in Vic and getting bigger with the now National Western Breeders Classic added to it.
    Our shows are within a better driving distance and more of them in a smaller area.

    Also perhaps there is a market here for what they breed also without the interstate travel.

    I told her to buy new WARM clothes as she will need them, LOL

    I don't know if I would say drought proof, as if the government get there way and up the charges for water and charge for your collection capabilities ect it will make it all very expensive, there are quiet a few studs up in the Shep area on irrigation which does sound appealing. It will be nice to see some more Halter Blood in Vic as many of the Futurities are being won by performance bred horse's ( however I believe that the breed should be more universal - nice looking horse's that everyone can ride ) I am referring to the Make A Wish Show and the Benalla Show both run over the last two weekends maybe three, where the yearling furtries were won by horse's destine to go under saddle.

    I didnt get to Make A Wish, we had a show closer I took my yearling too.

    Actually where I am it is drought proof. We have 11 months of effective growing season here, we dont use irrigation.

    Yes it will be great to improve the halter horses here. You really see the diff in quality when you get to Showcase and Nat between the Vic and interstate. MInd you, a halter horse should still be conformed well enough to ride.

    Vic is more a performance / cutting type world.
    Not many of us breeding halter stuff, thats about to change for the better.

    Its very easy to win in a small pond, but you find out how good they are when you get into NSW and QLD.

    I got all my horses from QLD and boy the travel cost for all of them was a killer. I could have had another mare for that, but there was nothing here I wanted. Now we will have access to those horses without the extra cost.

    I for one am really excited about the idea of better competition and higher quality. How are you suposed to fairly judge and critic your own stock if you never compete against better horses. And if you cant do that you will never improve.
    Some think I am mad wanting them here as they might not win as much, but I say fine, aim to breed a better horse that will win, dont just settle for what you have.

    I think thats why you see the futurities down here won by the odd performance bred horse, you get a couple a year that are exceptional in any book.
    It rarely happens interstate though. I dont think it will happen here much longer.

    How was Make A Wish. I heard Tash got champ stallion, but I didnt get any other results.

    Sorry don't know many results at all ( make a wish ), just that a HF Somethin Hot won mare 3 year old and under and Champion in the morning and then won yearling futurity and her class in the afternoon, apparently she was getting very tiered,
    I think it will be great for the AHS as really for a halter show it does not get strong support from the halter fraternity, the performance people travel to attend however the halter people don't seem to, and they run such a great show, with fantastic prizes and prizemoney.

    Also squid i know of at least a dozen performance horse's that has sold over the last 4/5 weeks and more than one in the 20 - 25K range, maybe the reason is not that the horses aren't selling but just that you are not aware of there sale as you are not really involved with the performance area.

    Yeh Im not really up to date with that standard of performance. Not really into them, I love watchin a pleasure class, but dont take much notice of whos got what. I am talking about middle range all rounder types, cutting, reining, all round versitiles that do most classes, around my area. The elite ones will always sell no matter what the breeding, im talking more $4-$8 000 of not so elite breeding.
    Many of the smaller studs cant give them away.

    I am getting 3-4 equiries a week as to if I know of any halter stuff around, mine sold within 1 day of Horse deals coming out. I have to send them interstate to find what they are after, and many wont buy from interstate sight unseen.

    You are right about the HS, it is one of the best shows to do. Really good prizes. It would be one of my favs for atmosphere.
    Im hoping Fat boy will be ready by then, he he

    We had a show at Geelong the same day as MAW, I would have loved to go. Maybe next year. No stallions, but that typical around here. My yearling got Champ gelding and won the yealing halter, Cool Sophisication won Reserve, Legally Blonde won Champ mare, a Yearling filly of Sopers got reserve. So all halter bred winners here.

    Where are you showing this season?

    Gellong must have been on Sunday as legally Blonde was at MAW on Saturday

    also the sopers horse would have been by there stallion Tall Dark and OK ( by tall dark and radical out of a jet boom mare ) and the dam was probably by there orther stallion who was by MBJ Chamer out of a rare chex mare and on bottom there was probable more rare chex, I think that maybe calling a horse that is 1/8 halter bred, hatler bred is probably takeing it a bit far.

    I will probab;y show at some of the shows in January 5 shows in only 4 weekends, so i am sure that i will bother to go to one of them

    um no. Sopers filly was by Tall dark N Radical out of a Jet Boom mare.
    Performance bred, it got second and reserve. The older mares were all performance or cutting bred. One quite nice Lethal Lena reining bred mare there, but judge wasnt impressed by her.

    I said the winners were halter bred, not the reserve. Sopers filly is quite nice, but no superstar halter horse. She looks as she is bred. There was no comparison between the champs and reserves, judge took less than a 2 mins to sash each. Ihardy had time to stand my boy up.

    More halter competition in the future will be very welcome.

    Did Legally blonde get beat at MAW? interesting.
    Yes Geelong was on Sunday.
