Jack and Kim were working at Beefwood Park, in the Kimberleys, for Danny Smith. Danny had a great line of horses which Jack and Kim got to work and draft, but Danny also had a standout mare, the very good and well performed Liberty (Warrenbri Amber). The more Jack and Kim rode the mare the more they became aware of her exceptional talent as both a station horse and a competition horse. They were then ecstatic when they were given an embryo from her.
Danny also owned a colt, Light Jack, who he had bred using well known east-coast genetics. He was only lightly drafted in the Territory and the Kimberleys. He had exceptional ability and temperament. Unfortunately an accident was to cut Light Jack’s life short and his full potential as a sire has never been realised, however he is breeding on great minded and trainable young horses.
When the embryo foal from Liberty and by Light Jack was born, Jack and Kim were thrilled as this was the colt foal that they were hoping for, Liberty Jack.
Jack and Kim operate the Hi-Way Inn Roadhouse at Daly Waters so finding time in their busy days to provide young horses with constant work is always a problem. So breaking Liberty Jack in was left to Cameron Coleman when the young colt was a 2.y.o. He then spent three years in the Territory stock camps with Gary Faulks before returning to Jack and Kim.
Liberty Jack started his competition career in the Territory, winning the Under 5 Challenge at Pussycat Bore and the Rookie Section of the 6 and over section of the Triple Crown Challenge. He won his Maiden at Halls Creek and then three Novices including Brunette Downs and Katherine.
2015 saw Liberty Jack on his first trip south and a 1st Round win in the Warwick Stallion Draft with 90 points and making the 2nd Rd of the Gold Cup with 88 showed that he is a competition horse ready to take on the A Graders.
Jack and Kim’s Stock Horse Stud, Bullwaddy Stock Horses, stand Liberty jack at Orange, NSW, from November to March.
They also have young horses for sale by Liberty Jack from Campdraft winning mares at all times.
