Our little herd of horses from Theda in the far north which we keep wild in a conservation
area near Broome is doing well. They are proving that small herds improve the land by
grazing down grasses which help prevent fires, they make single narrow tracks for other
wildlife to follow, leading them to water and avoiding snakes, they spread the indigenous
seed promoting growth and always come to their water trough at nightfall where we can feed
them hay and check their health regularly.
All six boys are gelded and the filly has turned 1 year old and will soon go to the Equine
Therapy Project in Broome.
Thankfully we have had very few call outs for foals lately, we've brought the beautiful mare
Sage in for training and she is now best mates with Roi the foal saved from Bililuna.
Here are some photos of our Theda herd as foals dating since we started them in 2014.
