REACHING OUT OF THE BOX – How the American Quarter Horse Industry is searching for the new thoroughbred outcross
Read what Americans leading breeders and trainers are doing in an article published in the American Quarter Horse News.
We’ve been busy for the last five years.
You see, we’ve been working on a private breeding program. We’ve bred our best campdraft mares to the best thoroughbred sires we can find to breed the kind of outcross colts we believe Australia has been waiting for.
Nonda Redford, the first colt we have produced from this program, combines his sire SEMIPALATINSK, a Champion Australian thoroughbred with his dam, NONDA LET’S TALK LATER, a champion Australian camp drafter.
This colt is a completely unique outcross. He combines the influence of the great Star Kingdom – considered one of the greatest sires in the Australian thoroughbred industry – with the influence of Doc Bar, considered the greatest sire in the American cutting and cow horse industry and now a major influence on the Australian camp drafting industry.
There’s a wise old saying that says sometimes the fastest things take the longest time, so we’ve been prepared to give our breeding program the time and patience it takes to breed the kind of horses we are looking for.
So what’s he done?
Well, as Banjo Patterson wrote in Clancy of the Overflow, he’s gone to Queensland droving and we don’t know where he are.
Truth is, he’s following a big mob of cattle with Terry Hall and getting plenty of wet saddle blankets.
And yeah, as Terry Hall might say, he goes alright.
