It is in particular on Mollie’s behalf that I write this post as she represents the future: will we still be able to find an old-fashioned girl like Mollie in twenty years?
Mike’s first visit to take photos was in May 2011, during a very wet period where my driveway was just mud so he had to walk from the front gate as his car was not a 4WD.
Please help us celebrate our first year of the new website by visiting us often to learn and enjoy, sharing links from our pages, and making contact if you know anything more about the Walers that are in our database, or should be.

For those interested here is the timeline of steps taken along the journey to capturing and bringing to Victoria horses from Todd River Downs, NT. In addition, a diary of milestones noted in their first year of captivity.
A beautiful sunny day, and hordes of interested visitors to Collingwood Children’s Farm made it a busy day for our two Waler mares Coolibah and Piperita.
For those who want to bone up on the Waler project as I see it today, with an historical summary for context.
Angela Tiede recalls the debut of Fisher and Pearl at the inaugural Victorian Brumby Show in 2009. Fisher and Pearl are foundation Newhaven station Walers, which means they can also be brumbies for the purposes of showing. So, why not enter the first brumby show run by the Victorian Brumby Association?
Documenting history is a key focus for this website so I have decided to share a project that seemed sensible at the time, just after I had got involved with the Walers.
I have claimed that my stallion Classic Ezekiel is an all-rounder, and so he is. We started our competition partnership in breed classes at Agricultural shows, added adult riding rings to our repertoire, then stockman’s challenges and working equitation events.
