Farewell & Welcome back 

Well we have had a very busy 4weeks here at Natan Paint Horse stud.  Fancy and Cora are back in getting rugged and stabled.  We are hoping to get them out to some local shows for their education. 

We said a very happy & sad goodbye to Natans Gem,  This wonderful old girl has found a new home with Lynda.  We have been told Gem as settled in really well and is already making herself well known to Lynda's stallion.

Natans Fortunate Acres (40)  has also found a new home and an old mate.  This lovely little horse has gone through so much it was very important to us that he had a loving home. It is wonderful that Shane & Skye came back and purchased him as they brought 40's best mate Fin.  Shane reports it's like they were never apart.  Shane and Skye are looking forward to breaking in riding these two boys.

We also welcomed home CC Sunrise Acres (Bud).  He is back for the breeding season (watch out girls).  If you would like to know more about Bud got to the stallion page.


Playing in the Mud 

Working with the mares and changing horses around this weekend.  As you can see we needed the gum boots.  We took a family snap shot. from L > R Natans Gem, Natans Spotted Bandit (1/2 sisters), niece Natans Rain and Natans Belle (daughter of Natans Spotted Bandit).



Around the grounds

The winter woollies are out, and how colourful they are.  Our beautiful girls Fancy and Cora are having fun growing out and being horses with Chase.  These three lovely fillies by CC Sunrise Acres impress us every time they are brought in and handed.


We said farewell to Natan’s Showman heading to his new home last weekend.  From the feedback received he travelled very well and they are very impressed with how easy he is to handle.
