Lots to report for the last 12 months. Pennyroyal
Bon Voyage made his newcomer debut and picked up some wins at local ag shows.
His first major show was VAS Ltd in Jan 2012 where he was placed Top 10 Newcomer
Large Pony. Unfortunately a minor injury requiring 4 weeks paddock rest meant
the end of what looked to be a promising season. Pictured below.
Pennyroyal Poetry made her newcomer debut at
Kingston Summer Horse Show in Jan 2012 where she was Champion Ridden Galloway.
Her next start was the EA Newcomer Show where she was Top 10 Newcomer Small
Galloway and Top 10 Rising Star Galloway. Her last show of the season was
Barastoc where she was also awarded Top 10 Newcomer Galloway, a great end to the
season. Photos to come.
Also making her debut in the showring in hand was
Pennyroyal Black Magic. She picked up Champion Senior Led Riding Pony at
Ballarat Ag Show, Champion Open Led Galloway at Clunes and Beaufort Ag Shows, as
well as Supreme Led Arabian Derivative at Beaufort.
Pennyroyal Picture Perfect attended a couple of
shows for Champion Large Saddle Pony at Colac Summer Horse Show and 2nd placings
in her led and ridden classes at the APSB Stud Show 2012.
We had two lovely colt foals for the season, both
by Langtree Eye of the Storm and both to mature galloway. We have three galloway
foals due for next season, two by Fairlight Acres Cruise and one by Langtree Eye
of the Storm. We also have Pennyroyal Portrait, a beautiful little pony mare
with sought after bloodlines with a positive preg test to Langtree Eye of the
Storm. She is currently being offered for sale.
Black Magic has broken in well and and has headed to the paddock for a
spell. Three year old Pennyroyal Bon Voyage
is the first of Cruise's progeny we have started under saddle and is proving to
be a beautiful ride, and with his huge overtrack and fantastic hock action he
shows a lot of promise for pony dressage as well as the show ring. Two more of
Cruise's progeny - Pennyroyal Portrait and
Pennyroyal Cruise Control will head
to the breakers over winter and will be offered for sale as newcomers in Spring.
Sadly we lost our beautiful galloway broodmare Hawthorne
Nakita (Kitten) from a mystery illness in Febuary. Her filly foal was only
12 weeks of age but has thrived despite the early weaning. Kitten has left us
with three beautiful progeny - Pennyroyal
Black Magic, Pennyroyal Winter Palace
and her 2010 filly foal and we hope they will all do her proud in the
Pennyroyal Poetry is progressing well under
saddle and also attended a quiet little show for her first outing in hand. She
took it all in her stride and picked up champion led galloway and supreme led
3 year old gelding Pennyroyal Bon Voyage headed
to the breakers recently and is progressing in record time. He is proving to
have a super temperament and was hacking out in a 20 acre paddock on only his
second ride. He will be coming home shortly and 3 year old galloway filly
Pennyroyal Black Magic is next in line for the breakers.
Our last Ag for 2011 was Dayelsford with
Pennyroyal Picture Perfect. We got drowned yet again but picked up another win
and reserve champion large saddle pony.
After a much needed spell, we headed to the APSB
Stud Show on Jan 15 with Picture Perfect as well as 2yo Pennyroyal Winter Palace
for his first outing. Winter was shown by part owner Lara Tweedie for 2nd in the
2 year old futurity and 3rd in his gelding class. Pennyroyal Picture Perfect
picked up placings in all her classes including 2nd led APSB Riding Pony mare
and 2nd APSB Riding Pony newcomer. Pictures below.
Also pictured below is our 2011 newcomer galloway
Pennyroyal Poetry, full sister to Pennyroyal Storm Boy and our 2010 filly
Rising 4 year old galloway filly Pennyroyal
Poetry is back under saddle after a 12 month spell after she was broken in. She
will be taken along slowly with the 2011 newcomer season in mind. 3 year old
large pony Pennyroyal Sonata has also headed to the breakers.
Pennyroyal Picture Perfect had a successful day
at Ballarat with a 1st and 2nd in open saddle classes and champion ridden
newcomer. Our next outing was Beaufort with 3 year old gelding Pennyroyal Bon
Voyage who competed in two led classes for two champions.
Hawthorne Nakita presented us with our second and
last foal of the season, a lovely brown filly by Langtree Eye of the Storm.
Pennyroyal Picture Perfect attended Geelong Royal
Show for her 3rd start under saddle and took the atrocious conditions in her
stride. We only competed in 3 out of the 8 classes entered but placed in all and
were happy to call it a day and head home for a hot shower! The following
weekend we travelled to Bendigo for a very successful 4th outing under saddle,
results are listed on Pennyroyal Picture
We have our first foal on the ground, a beautiful
filly by Langtree Eye of the Storm out of our lovely anglo mare Roheryn Sheer
Delite. She should mature around 14.2h and we hope she will make a super saddle
galloway. She is a full sister to our own Pennyroyal Poetry and also Pennyroyal
Storm Boy in Tasmania.
Pennyroyal Picture Perfect (x Langtree Eye of the
Storm) has finally made her saddle debut after spending the last 3 years
babysitting my youngsters while I was busy with family commitments. She will be
ridden by Brianna Pacelli and we look forward to having lots of fun with her
A number of other Langtree Eye of the Storm
progeny have also made their show ring debuts recently. At the recent Victorian
State Titles Janevelyn Tsunami was Top 10 Rising Star and Newcomer galloway and
Merivale Park China Rose owned by Brooklyn Show Horses was Top 10 Rising Star
Large Pony at her first outing under saddle. Pic below

Our first show of the season was the 44th Annual Victorian
Stud Pony Show with 2yo gelding Pennyroyal Bon Voyage. At his very first outing and
with only one week preparation, he was awarded Reserve Champion APSB Riding Pony
gelding. A little later he was awarded 1st by a panel of 3 judges in the 2 year
old APSB Riding Pony Futurity, against a quality field including the Supreme
APSB RP from earlier in the day.
The following weekend we attended the Melbourne Summer Royal.
We only entered two classes on the Saturday and were very pleased with Bon
Voyage who placed in both.
Pictured above is the yearling Pennyroyal
Winter Palace owned in partnership with Lara Tweedie, and below is the 2 year old galloway
Pennyroyal High Tide owned by Lisa Watt. Both are destined for saddle careers.
Pennyroyal Spring Lily has been sold to a wonderful home. The
2 year olds Pennyroyal Bon Voyage and Black Magic are being mouthed in
preparation for their in-hand debuts. Due to social commitments we have decided
not to start Pennyroyal Picture Perfect as a newcomer this season and will hold
her over until 2010.
Pennyroyal Poetry and Pennyroyal Spring Lily are both heading
to the breakers.
Congratulations to Niarla Arabians with Bellevale Fine Design
(Pennyroyal By Design x Fairlight Acres Cruize) on Reserve Champion Arabian

Congratulations to Lara Savva of Victoria on the purchase of
the beautiful weanling colt Pennyroyal Winter Palace (pending) by Fairlight
Acres Cruize out of Hawthorne Nakita. He is an exciting saddle prospect and we
look forward to seeing him out in the show ring in the future.
We are reducing our breeding program for the next few years
and therefore reluctantly offer for sale some treasured breeding stock. Please

Congratulations to Monique Bray and her weanling filly

Brayside Charlies Angel is a full sister to Pennyroyal Sail
Away, recently sold to Emma Barlow of Victoria.
Our first venture out to a show since the birth of our son
Xavier was the the 43rd Victorian APSB Stud Show. Despite little preparation our
2 year old Pennyroyal Portrait won her Foal Futurity and was Best Foal Futurity
APSB Derivative. In the afternoon she was Reserve Champion Led APSB Riding Pony
Filly to the eventual supreme winner.
Our beautiful galloway mare
Hawthorne Nakita presented us with our last foal of
the season, a typey dark brown colt to mature up to height pony. He looks a very
Welcome to our beautiful little boy Xavier James Walker, born
on 30 September weighing 2.7kg (6 pounds).
We also have two more foals, a very dainty dark
brown colt foal by Langtree Eye of the Storm out of Falconhurst Lilac Time and a
lovely big chestnut colt by Langtree Eye of the Storm out of Janevelyn Royal
Tender. Some of our 2008 foals will be for sale, please enquire.
We have welcomed our first foal for the season, the result of
a long awaited cross between Fairlight
Acres Cruize and our beautiful anglo arabian mare
Roheryn Sheer Delite. We were very
pleased with a typey bay colt who should go small galloway. Photos on the
Our next two mares are due to foal late October and and in the
meantime we are excitedly awaiting the birth of our first child.
Janevelyn Royal Tender, our favourite broodmare was
represented by two progeny at the recent Toowoomba Royal. Janevelyn Madras was
Champion Led Riding Pony Stallion, Champion Led Saddle Pony Stallion and Reserve
Champion Ridden Saddle Pony. Janevelyn Boogieman placed in 6 classes both led
and ridden. We have for sale a beautiful colt out of Janevelyn Royal Tender, he
represents a wonderful opportunity to obtain these beautiful bloodines in a
future sire or saddle prospect.
News from Leanne Bell that Pennyroyal Storm Boy (Langtree Eye
of the Storm x Roheryn Sheer Delite) recently attended his only show for the
season for two champions, two reserves and best presented of the show. He will
be started under saddle in the near future.
Our yearling filly Pennyroyal Portrait attended Barastoc, her
second of only two shows for the season for some pleasing results. She took
everything in her stride and will be retained as a future saddle pony.
All six foals from the 2007 season have been weaned and are
doing very well. Some are available for sale.

is going beautifully with only a handful of rides. Photos taken during her first
ride in a big arena, ridden by 11yo Abbey Heffer.
