A breeders life is not always beer and skittles, particularly for new breeders where initially it’s a lottery. There are three occasions when they need to hold their breath:
Well, we are happy to report that David and Heather Pascoe have won the lottery with Nonda Southern Cross (Denzel), his first fillies having surpassed all expectations.
Started by Jake Capewell they were given the big thumbs up, then after a good spell they were sent to Denzel’s trainer Jon Templeton to see what they were like at the coal face.
Jon was more than impressed with both fillies, saying, “They have excellent movement and great retention and they are soft and very pliable…” After putting them on cattle for a few soft days, he said that like their dad they are “absolute naturals”.
Jon added, “I can’t help but be excited about what the future holds for them”, and neither can we!
Both fillies turned two in October and their dams’ are young Conman mares from a wonderful old Nonda family.
