The stud did extremely well winning the futurity (Murraygold Jassmyn) and won many sashes and awards on the palomino day and also on the breeds day. They did extremely well with Uhavta Jukebox who was a multi champion winner on the breeds day and also with Murraygold Kiss N Kuddle, who is by Uhavta Diamonds N Dreams (AI-UK) and Uhavta Royal Enchanment.

  •  Aussie Oasis was all set to race over Easter-trialled three times, but now has an abcess under his jaw being treated.

  •  Wild Armani: had her first start in a race at Kerang 23/04/11 and what a momonth fete this has been. Guided by Wayne Hokai in the saddle she jumped awkward and two collided. This filly will be heaps better for this race. This is a very hormonal mare and has required a lot of work to get her to settle in the barriers. Special thanks has to go to Austy Coffee and Heath Chalmers, they did a heap of hard work with her at the start getting her to walk through the barriers. Then she went to Kelly and Luke Adcock's were they got her to trail and get her barriers certificate.

The Flood Preparation

  •  Well what a start to 2011. Flooding for Swan Hill. First we had a phone call to help evacuate horses from Kerang and then we find out roads closed. Next a meeting for Lake Boga and surroundings area's. We get told that waters will be at our place in two days time. On Thursday the 20th January we evacuate 30 plus horses with the assistance of friends (Meinholds, Managan , Jones, Lloyds, Bruce) to Alby Mangles and his father in law's farm. We can not thank these people enough. Next was the stallion and colts and a visiting broodmare. Our Friends (The Anderson family) from Mildura took our resident stallion and our visiting mare, and friends from Euston (Vicki, Kady and Brett) took our yearling colt and the two year old thoroughbred that we had just evacuated from the Kerang floods.

  • It was extremely hard having horses in the stable ready for shows and taking them to paddocks, taking of their rugs and saying now go and defend for yourself.

  • Next it was to save the house. Our friend Jason Morrish from Ouyen, who was Al's best man at our wedding and is Wentworth's God-Father came to the rescue and has built a Levy with the assistance of his mate Honker "Robert", Al and Kady's partner Brett. What a mammoth effort. You just need to look at the photo's to see Jock's master piece.

  • Then we re-evacuated horses to a friend farm a bit closer so that we could still work the thoroughbred's, thanks to Nerida Morrish for helping us relocate horses  to Gav Murphy for allowing us to use his paddocks and yards.

  • The broodmares and foals are at Alby's father in laws.

  • Lastly we would like to thank all our family and friends that have offered us assistance. We know who you all are and appreciate the offers. We greatly appreciate all the offers of help.

  • All we can say is thankyou and hope that it is truly only a one in 200 year event.

  • To keep you updated we were told we were going to be flooded by the 23rd of January, today the 29th we are told it is still coming. It has been a life experience, but one that I do not want to part-take in again, We look so forward to getting all our horses home. We miss them dreadfully. I don't know how I will cope when Wentworth wants to leave home.

  • We have missed Melbourne Royal Horse Show and had six horses entered. David Ward had Uhavta Hourglass in his stables at Bendigo. He borrowed a bridle from Bev Richard's. We can not thank them enough, as Uhavta Hourglass competed on the Thursday and won her two filly classes and ANSA and the Arabian Riding Pony filly and stood Reserve champion Arabian Riding pony Mare/filly.

  • David also did a mercy Dash with Brendan and Janet. They took Uhavta Getaway and Uhavta Hocus Pocus back to Bendigo to keep them in work, after they suffered some scratches in the paddock.

  • We had to also withdraw from VASA and will not have ponies ready for the RP and RP youngstock show now, which disappoints us tremendously.

  • We just hope we can get to Canberra Royal. We need to look at the brighter side of life and hope that our family, horses and house remain dry and safe.

  • Uhavta Go Go Girl is under offer-more details to follow.

  • Two new horses have been purchased, stay tuned for details and photos.

  • It was so nice to receive a phone call from Shirlene re; Her purchase last June- Uhavta Imposter to say that he is going so well and is lovely and quiet. He was to return early this year to be broken in, but as he was so quiet Shirlene decided to break him in herself with a friend in the high Country. She rang up to say how proud she was of him. We are proud of you both Shirlene  and your friend and look forward to see him out and about under saddle. Congratulations.
