Our red-headed Aussie broodmare has a new home in Virginia

Betty at her new home in VA

Melinda Walton and Larry T. Smith have imported our finest broodmare from Australia to join their mares in Middleburg, VA.

Betty Barkley is by Brentano II out of Jasmine (Rosa Cha W's dam), and is in foal to Heath Ryan’s GP stallion Regardez Moi - who is Rosa Cha W's sire, so this foal will  be a 3/4 sibling to Rosa. 

Betty had never left the farm in Australia before she boarded the truck to Sydney, a flight to LA connecting to NY, and then a truck to VA. She arrived in excellent condition to her new home in the US.

Melinda and Larrry have been wonderful supporters of Silva’s riding and also have bred some incredible horses, which Silva has been lucky enough to produce and compete. We are happy that Betty has such a fantastic new home and wish everyone well!
