Wilga Park River Gum- buckskin colt - (Sire: Ragtime Oro Blanco)
Born 26 October 2014
What a little muscle man is River Gum! He was born looking like he had been 'working out' for months. River is a perfect combination of the defined muscle of a body-builder and the lightness of step of a ballet dancer. He is as agile as a cat.
River is full of confidence in his own ability to conquer the world. He loves to gallop and prance. He is an athlete.
River is the first of this cross, so we have no comparison to make with older siblings. However, we think he will mature at around 14'3hh. We feel it is important to maintain the Ragtime Oro Blanco bloodlines in Australia and this young fellow has grown into such a nice young fellow, we believe he is suitable to remain entire.
Description of the River Gum...
The River Gum is a familiar and iconic tree seen along many watercourses right across inland Australia. The tree produces welcome shade in the extreme temperatures of central Australia, and plays an important role in stabilising river banks.
Along ephemeral creeks in arid central Australia it forms narrow corridors, providing vital refuge in the form of habitat and food resources for a whole host of animals in an otherwise hostile, arid environment.
The River Gum is an icon of arid central Australia, where the tree is sacred - standing for water, life and hope.
