The Heritage of Stratton  Stock Horses started back in 1970 with the purchase of “Yebna Station“ and its work horse plant.

With the need for more mustering horses, the best mares were selected and bred to a thoroughbred stallion FLASH OF GOLD (Test Case NZ).  From this breeding  a colt foal (YEBNA BUSTER) was selected to become the station sire.

Yebna Buster was joined to the best of the mares in the station mustering team. These mares were mostly 1st cross Arab with some thoroughbred infusion.

Yebna Buster is now featured in the book “Forty-Two Years of Elite Campdraft Breeding”. He won 9 campdrafts including 1987 Condamine Bell. John Mulcahy won the 1990 ACA Champion Rider on Yebna Buster and his progeny.

From this breeding, champion campdrafters were produced.

Gest An AcreThe Future: Gest an Acre

After the years of breeding to outside stallions, Stratton Stockhorses purchased the Quarter Horse stallion Gest an Acre in 2010. He is by the champion sire “Acres Destiny” out of a proven mare line in Gest Debbie.

He will be joined to our well performed mares in Stratton Gran, Stratton TKO, Corvale Sapphire, Stratton Rugged Beauty.

With selective breeding, Stratton StockHorses are breeding horses that will perform well in the arena as well as horses for everyday work. Hence our slogan of BREEDING TO BREED ON.

Since joining the Mulcahy stable, Gest an Acre has excelled in the campdrafting arena. He experienced a long delay in getting to his first start due to a severe foot injury sustained in a paddock accident. It was feared this injury may have ended his career before it started, however dedicated nursing from John and Sandy resulted in him having his first start and his first win at the Taroom Golden Horseshoe 2012.

Pedigree

With renewed vigour for being at the pinnacle of Campdrafting, John Mulcahy decided to find a stallion worthy of offering something different, yet special, to the campdraft industry.

John and his wife Sandy moved from Stratton to Pringle Downs, Roma, and with this move came some spare time that John decided to channel into campaigning and standing a new, exciting, young stallion. After an extensive search he found Gest an Acre a young colt is by Acres Destiny and from a mare with very different bloodlines from those seen extensively in the industry at present.

Gest Debbie and Smart Little Lena are both out of Peppy San mares. Also, as Gest an Acre shares some maternal breeding with Acres Destiny, he carries triple crosses of Doc Bar and Three Bars (Thoroughbred) and double crosses of Peppy Belle and Royal King.
