Tuff's story
+

Rod & Sharon Tattersall started Valley End Quarter Horses only a few years ago but have always had a passion for quality in breeding and a focus on contributing to the improvement of any industry that they are a part of.

Having a commercial beef operation, this led them to focus on cow horses (primarily cutting).  They had amassed a small herd of quality cutting bred mares for breeding purposes and were focused on breeding to quality stallions.  Through Rod’s research he began communicating with Adam Conrad of Conrad Quarter Horses in Texas who was the owner of Lil Spoon.

Lil Spoon had the breeding, conformation and temperament that they were looking for and it didn’t hurt that he had plenty of eye appeal as well!

Adam had a blue roan colt foal available from Lil Spoon and LZL Tuff Red Rasberi, many of whose progeny had competed in the American and European reigning futurities.  Here was Tuff Lil Spoon!  Tuff ticked many of the boxes for Rod & Sharon but, as a foal, purchasing him was certainly a speculator for them.

The decision was made to purchase Tuff Lil Spoon and import him to Australia and he arrived in Queensland at 10 months of age.  He was certainly a funny looking thing at that stage, all gangly and hairy.  What had they done they wondered?

Tuff blossomed from the moment he arrived in Australia and continues to impress with his quiet temperament, athleticism and muscularity.

He is currently in cutting training with Regan Lyons of Top Gun Horse Training and competed at the Tamworth Futurity in May/June 2019.  Although he is six months younger than the Australian bred horses who competed at Tamworth, he performed extremely well in his first show, proving he has caught up in his training and is very competitive.  Exciting times ahead for Tuff.

He will be standing at KMC Contracting Performance Horse Breeding & Rehab Centre for the first time in the 2019 breeding season.
