    Denny was owned by the Lovick family in Mansfield, Victoria, and he died aged 29 in 1999. You can find out more information on the Lovick's website. I'm sure if you email them they will let you know what breed he was.;)

    ooo ooo my mare was in the Arena show!

    When I was told she was a flag horse for it I didn't think she would be in it much but I was around at my friends house the other day and she had the dvd from the show and she is in the whole thing!

    She even has a little write-up in the show catalogue (although they say she is blue roan and she is most definately grey!)

    An ASH or Snowy River Brumby, just can't remember but was obviously bred and raised in the terrain.

    It thought he would be an ASH or some sort but wondered what the breeding was/is...

    I read a few yrs ago in one of those horsewyse magazines that a family acquired him during the major major drought few years back overeast. They had him until he had died but not 100% sure of anything else or what edition of that magazine it was sorry.

    There were actually 3 horses who played "Denny" but the main horse role is the horse owned by the Lovicks :) Trained stunt horses were used for fall scenes.
