'Tessa'

Tessa is a 14.1hh, 7yo, ASH x QH, black mare.

Tessa is a lovely compact little mare, with free flowing paces, even tempo and willing attitude to please her rider. This is a very genuine, uncomplicated forward moving mare, who is just the perfect cross mix, with agility and also soft kind nature.

Tessa has done some local PC rallies with her previous owners, lessons and clinics. She is un-phased by new places, just saddle up, get on and go! She is currently in full work, ridden in open spaces, arenas and will commence XC schooling with us this week.

She was originally started and used as a feed lot horse, so is used to trucks, cars, dog, and stock. Great to trail ride.

Recently brought back in work, after an 8 month spell, no dirt at all. Can be ridden a couple of times a week, or in full work, isn't a hot horse,

Tessa would best be suited to an intermediate and above rider, great for an adult who is wanting a safe mount, or an experienced rider who just wants a fuss free horse, she is a sensitive but sensible horse. She is not a beginners mount.

Great to float, catch, rug, easy for the farrier.
Currently up to date with farrier (barefoot), dentist, and worming.
Was recently treated by a horse osteopath, just as a general maintenance.

Price: $4000

Located in Bellbrae, 30mins from Geelong.

Please contact Jemma on 0409 258 209 for more details.

For many more photos of Tessa, please 'LIKE' Scenic Park Equine Services on Facebook

Numbers have been better this year than they have been for a long time.
21 purebred geldings under saddle
20 senior purebred geldings in hand.
Haven't counted a lot of the classes, but bigger numbers than there have been in a lot of classes for years.
Should add, there has to be 20 plus horses in a class for the full top 10 to be awarded. Plenty of classes have more than 10 in them.


Yeah I'm just saying the numbers are still small in the scheme of things for most classes.. Top 10 seems ambitious for most classes these days, I've seen atleast 10 classes where a max of 4 top tens have been handed out (so not even half) and several with only a champ or champ and reserve, top 10 seems to be from the 'good old days' when there were enough in a class to award them..

And above you're talking pures and I was talking derivs..


The Deriv classes have always been on the smaller scale though DG. Quarabs, stockhorses, AWB and ARP's are still only fairly new registries.
AP's look like they were well supported and Partbred's still had an ok number (but lot of there old numbers could have been stolen by the newer registries these days) But Anglo numbers did look fairly down Sad

So do you think the numbers overall justify a top 10? I've seen two classes that have been able to hand out all of their top 10's.. It was just an observation because I think it seems a bit silly to hold a national show with top 10's and then only hand out a small % of your top 10 awards..

Personally I think it works pretty well, the large classes aren't penalised for the smaller ones.

I had gallbladder surgery back in 2013. Up until a few weeks ago, they were raised scars from the keyhole entries. Now they are sunken into my body about 3-4mm? I forgot to ask my GP about it the other day, and google doesn't tell me if they can go from raised to sunken..



Depending on where, how they were closed and formed, and your skin type, they can depress & sink in due to remodelling and contracture underneath.

Even though it was 2013, it can take a lot of time to 'settle'.

I've had major surgery on several parts of my body and although I have massive scars ( one is 19" long Wink ) they haven't sunken in due to the way they were closed and also the fact they were closed by a team of some of the worlds best plastic surgeons ( non cosmetic) which was very lucky for me!

I've other huge scar from 65 sutures from 30 years ago on my arm from an injury.( arm accidentally went through ancient glass window) Theres minimal pitting or sinking there but I think it's lucky it's not worse as the intern stuffed it up! Probably fat Wink

You can get scar revisions done if you are really bothered about it, but I think they are just part of life's journey and badges.

Further to what PCB suggested, get your neighbours and yourself to keep a two-week diary of when the dog is barking and ALL of you contact the council and local member with the information, as well as details of when you have contacted council.

If someone has the time, it's probably worth looking up your local domestic Animal Management Plan to see what it says should be happening in the event of a barking dog complaint. You can then refer back to it when you write up your email with a 'please explain why this hasn't happened' attached.

DEPI (which isn't DEPI anymore but I can't remember the abbreviations they use now) can't do anything because it's councils job to enforce local laws.


ETA DAMP is available here https://www.bendigo.vic.gov.au/About_the_City/Publications/D ocuments_listing/Domestic_Animal_Management_Plan#.VPAYOk24b_ 8

Bendigo's barking dog complaint process appears to start with a form, which is available here https://www.bendigo.vic.gov.au/Services/Animals_and_Pets/Bar king_dogs#.VPAYYU24b_8

Nothing to add, but DEWLP Laughing it's awful!


DELWP is the environment half of DEPI (old DSE).

The ag half (old DPI) has become DEDJTR - which I must not refer to as Dead Janitor... Although the emails I've been getting back from friends/ex-colleagues this year are @ecodev, so I think they're calling it Eco Dev instead of DEDJTR for short Smile

It's not quite so cut and dried with working livestock guardian dogs. If he is actually guarding animals, be it sheep or chickens, you will have a hard time getting council to shut him down unless you are close to town or on small acreage. If he is just there as a guard dog and has no stock it is the same as any nuisance dog barking complaint. Be prepared to keep a diary for fricken months!
Working Maremmas rarely bark for no reason. If they perceive a reason however, they can go off all night. If you have resident foxes in the area you have pretty much no hope of shutting him up. It's what they do. They are almost totally untrainable and not like any other dogs.
I have a Maremma looking after my chooks but he is totally cool. He rarely barks for more than a few seconds at a time and you KNOW some thing is there.
He did let the Jehovahs in the other day Confused What on earth they were doing all the way out here boggles the mind Confused

This is in the middle of town!! We live along a back lane behind the main road, residential area surrounded by houses.

It barks at nothing, seriously nothing. Because there could not be something every minute.of the night.

If it is in town then it is a totally different story. Maremmas don't belong in town. They are working dogs and need a job and lots of room or they just become a noisy nuisance. Like this one clearly has.

Actually, it's quite cut & dried with all barking dogs, regardless if they are workng dogs or not. All domestic animals fall under the Domestic Animal Act in Victoria, which the AMO from the councils will have the power to enforce.

Think you are right, it doesn't have a real job to do. We see them out on farms guarding sheep quite happily. This one is fine while the owner is there, seems to really adore him so maybe its lonely.
A neighbor and I spoke to the owner about it, I don't think he believes its that bad and when he left last night it was ok for a little while but then barked steadily all night.
The neighbor rang the ranger not long after I did and he was even less helpful.

I'm considering one of those recording things that only come on when there's sound.

If he is just there as a guard dog and has no stock it is the same as any nuisance dog barking complaint. Be prepared to keep a diary for fricken months!
Working Maremmas rarely bark for no reason. If they perceive a reason however, they can go off all night. If you have resident foxes in the area you have pretty much no hope of shutting him up. It's what they do. They are almost totally untrainable and not like any other dogs.
I have a Maremma looking after my chooks but he is totally cool. He rarely barks for more than a few seconds at a time and you KNOW some thing is there.
He did let the Jehovahs in the other day Confused What on earth they were doing all the way out here boggles the mind Confused

This is in the middle of town!! We live along a back lane behind the main road, residential area surrounded by houses.

It barks at nothing, seriously nothing. Because there could not be something every minute.of the night.

If it is in town then it is a totally different story. Maremmas don't belong in town. They are working dogs and need a job and lots of room or they just become a noisy nuisance. Like this one clearly has.



Actually, it's quite cut & dried with all barking dogs, regardless if they are workng dogs or not. All domestic animals fall under the Domestic Animal Act in Victoria, which the AMO from the councils will have the power to enforce.



That may be technically correct but our council is very reluctant to pursue working dog barking complaints if the dog is on decent acreage.

It's more than technically correct, it's an Act of Parliament Wink

Usually, if a dog dies from a snakebite, there will be venom present in the blood.
If there is no venom in the blood, then the COD was not a snake.
So sorry for your loss, its horrible losing a loved family member like this

Did you take a pic of the snake so I could maybe ID it?
Glad your dog made it to.

I actually like it too. I am just about to buy a bunch of pics from a recent comp. There were two photographers there, taking pics in the same test. The edited ones have highlighted the blue in my T shirt, saddle cloth and dapple grey. It looks stunning. The other shots make the grey horse look too exposed, washed out and you almost can't see where his shape ends and the sky begins.


Sorry to hijack.... Which event was this at Ransom? Smile


Round 2 and 3 of golden spurs. Elcho park. I think you were there too.
