CM Oberon Toblerone (Dec)

Cleveland Bay

Born: 1999 - 17.3hh

Sire: Emperor Oberon

Dam: Kalgan Windup

Tobi has the most amazing temperament - I was offered him direct from the paddock in WA - miles from anywhere and having not been handled since he was 18 months old - and at this stage he was 9... He just takes everything in his stride.

Wildfeuer (Dec)


Born: 1970 - 16.3hh

Sire: Waterman

Dam: Cambia

Wildfeuer is CM Oberon Toblerones grandsire, and you can certainly see his influence in him.   You can get a feel for how prepotent the Cleveland Bay is - Wildfeuer had Purebred CB blood back in his lineage in the 1840s, with Duke Of Cleveland and Brilliant - as far back as the late 1700s with Duke of York too.   It always amuses me when  dont want to associate their European Warmbloods with Clevies - however if they looked back through their lineage - the would see that the Cleveland Bay was influencial in their breed being established.

Allen Park Bald Eagle (Dec)

Station Bred Stock Horse

Born: 1974 or 1975

Sire: Santee (Station Bred Stock Horse)

Dam: Limpy Lady (TB)

Black and White Stallion - Sire was a Grey and White Station Bred Stock Horse, dam was a Black TB He was born in 1974 or 1975 and died in 2008 when we put him down. He was still getting mares pregnant at 32 1/2 yrs old!!    He sired some wondeful foals and is well known in SA.

CM Danzaponastaa (Dec)


Born: 1999 - 16.2hh

Sire: Danzig Connection

Dam: Herself

Ziggy, as he was known at home, was purchased through a clearing sale - I always say I liked his bone structure - as I could see all of it!     He had Joint Ill as a foal which put paid to any chance of a racing career for him - but he was used to sire some station bred stock horses til his owner passed away and he came to live with us.   We put him to a few of our nicely bred CBSH and WBSH mares and were very pleased with the results.   We had to put Ziggy to sleep when his leg started giving him trouble.
