Last Word's story
+

A new chapter is beginning for Huon and Colleen Smith at Boonara with the arrival of Glencoe Last Word. Huon and Colleen are very astute horse breeders and they are continually looking for genetics that will enhance both their own mare line while offering superior and different outcross options for the wider Stock Horse community. With Glencoe Last Word they have found just that, a unique Stockhorse outcross that they are very excited to use.

Creswood Rivoli All Talk

They are very grateful to Max and Lynne Glasser for giving them the opportunity to own Glencoe Last Word, while they are also excited for the future of the Glasser genetics.

Glencoe Last Word  is sired by the great Creswood Rivoli All Talk. The broader campdraft community will remember one of the much loved and admired combinations of the 80’s and 90’s, Eric Young and Rivoli All Talk. Campaigning in the Warwick area they won 40 Open drafts plus Nola and the family won many Juveniles and Ladies with him. He was a really talented horse with natural ability and a wonderful temperament which made him the all round family horse we all remember. He is also remembered as a horse that bred on and sired exceptional camp horses for the Young family such as Silence, Mexico and Rumours, Bounty, Monique and Rave On.

Equally impressive is Last Word’s maternal heritage. The Glasser family and their Glencoe Stock Horses have been a powerful breeding name in the Stock Horse industry for generations of both people and horses. Frank and Max Glasser were always in the winners circle and travelled extensively in the 50’s, 60’s and on into the more recent times of campdrafting winning a trophy cabinet full of the biggest drafts around including National Titles and a Warwick Gold Cup. They always rode home bred horses with their breeding emphasis being type, temperament and ability. Hence the Glencoe mare line remained full of good quality mares that looked good and would perform in any arena. This can be seen through the sale results the stud achieved and the percentage of winners across all disciplines from those sale horses.

Glencoe Last Word with new owner Huon Smith & Matt Glasser.

Max and Lynne had always admired All Talk and wanted to breed to him and in 2002 they sent one their exceptional brood mares, Perfects Portrait to be mated. Perfects Portrait was a 3rd generation Glasser bred mare with her great grandam being the legendary Lingi Perfection- HSH who won 130 campdrafts. Perfects Portrait represented everything positive in the Glencoe breeding program. Fortunately she went in foal to the then aging All Talk and the resultant foal was to be the last progeny All Talk bred, hence the very clever name, ”Last Word”.

Last Word has been used lightly as a sire by the Glasser’s with his eldest progeny now 13 years old, but it is the quality and the results these progeny that has prompted Huon and Colleen to promote the now 17 year old stallion.

Last Word is a great opportunity to breed to traditional Stockhorse bloodlines. He has sired many Champions in the Campdraft and Show Arena. He has sired Led, Working, Challenge and Open Campdraft Winners as his progeny are trainable, quiet and have style for the show ring. His progeny are highly sought after at sales and continue on to be successful show horses for their new owners. In the campdraft arena the striking black colt, Cole Black with Joe Payne in the saddle is an example of where his progeny are going and what the future holds.

Glencoe Posh was the first of Last Word’s fillies to be sold.  At just 16 months she sold for $12,250 to Shane and Janet Everingham. Earmarked for a show career and futurities, “Posh” certainly delivered.

Posh was sold on to Terry Snow for $20,000 and sources tell us, “She’s Terry’s favourite mare, actually she is everyones’ favourite mare here at Willinga Park!”

“She is an eye catching, very beautiful & great natured mare, she is the perfect broodmare that breeds her quality onto her progeny.”

  • Champion Led Mare over 15h at ASHS National Show

Cole Black

  • Stallion

Glencoe Uniquer

  • Mare
  • Dam: Jays Barbie Doll
  • Registration # 198183

Glencoe Uniquer hit the ground running. At just 16 months, she was unbeaten when shown as a yearling, winning and placing in all of her led classes.  When she competed at the Stock Horse Nationals as a 3 year old she performed well in all the big classes.

Glencoe Pretty Neat

Glencoe Pretty Neat was purchased at auction by an agent on behalf of Sandhaven Performance Horses when she was just 16 months old.  They loved her movement and were looking for some “old school” genetics.

After being in training with Steven Hart, in August of 2018 she was exported to Sandhaven’s stud in Texas, USA,

Owner Kellee Campbell said, “January 6, 2020 was her first Working Equitation outing, and she was wonderful!  So calm and accepting.  This big mare is going to grow into a fabulous mover and we love her!”

Sandhaven thought enough of Pretty Neat after her arrival that they shipped semen from Last Word into the US late last season.  Unfortunately Corona virus  means there is no foals by him as yet, but they are planning to put a TB mare to him.  Exciting times ahead!

Liv Tyler

  • Mare
  • Foaling date: 26/10/2007
  • Dam: Creswood Strife
  • Registration # 185704

Last Word’s progeny excel in the showring & sales arena, but are also handy workers, perfectly capable of a good, hard days work in the mustering camp.

Creswood Rivoli All Talk

Creswood Stock Horses was officially established by Eric & Nola Young when the Australian Stock Horse Society began in the early 1970’s.

Creswood Stock Horses was home to the great sire ‘Creswood Rivoli All Talk’, purchased in 1978 as a yearling. All Talk went on to have a very successful Campdrafting career, winning 1 Maiden, 3 Novices, 40 Open drafts and multiple Ladies, Juvenile & Junior Drafts.  He also had a very successful show and futurity career

Today, all of the Creswood horses ridden by the Young family go back to All Talk.

Maternal Great Grandam - Lingi Perfection

Perfection was born in 1950 and by the time she was a 6 yo she was aready ‘drafting successfully. In 1958, Frank Glasser travelled as far north as Mt Isa, and then in 1959 he and son Max travelled to Bourke and Brewarrina in NSW. It was the Australian Championship Horse Sports, and it was here that Perfection won the Juvenile Draft Championship with Max in the saddle, and then went on to win the Australian Championship Campdraft, beating the immortal Abbey into second place. Perfection also placed 5th in the Warwick Gold Cup in 1959.

Perfection went on to win in excess of 130 campdrafts in a career that spanned the years of 1956 to the late 1960s. During that time it was not unusual for Perfection to win three drafts in the one day – the open with Frank in the saddle, the Juvenile with his daughter Beryl riding and the Ladies with the wonderful May Thompson piloting her. Perfection also won many Led Mare Competitions, usually at Campdrafts where they were judged as a type most likely to breed stock horses and it was not uncommon to see 30 or more mares line up for this event.

Maternal Grandam - Perfect

The only foal produced by the great campdraft mare Lingi Perfection, was Perfect  foaled on 22/2/1972 when she was 22 yo.

Broken-in as a three year old by Max Glasser, this mare won a Maiden campdraft at her first start. During her career Perfect did not get the opportunities she deserved, due to family committments with stud cattle, however she won several progressives and placed in several big Opens, including the big Toogoolawah Open in 1987.

Perfect played a major part in the Glencoe Stockhorses breeding programme.

Dam - Perfects Portrait

Perfects Portrait was Perfect’s last foal born when she was 24.  By Quidong Absalom she is a lovely big volume broodmare who has proven to be a valuable asset to Glencoe Stockhorses breeding band.
