Roy

Captured on Todd River Downs in 2019 as a result of extensive research into the likely presence of old-boodlines breeding true to this day in the isolated and harsh country but being removed as feral animals so facing extinction in this area.

Wonderful old-bloodlines and colour diversity represented, some medium horses were seen but mostly light and a handful of the rare pony type.
