I've been reading about the drama surrounding a Mr Bill Vlahos, the vanishing act of some $194million dollars, and allegations that the $5million colt out of Helsinge, who is Black Caviar's half brother, hasn't actually been paid for. People are saying he's worth more dead than alive. I find that upsetting. Because horses for me are personal. And in researching images of this individual, and his 'colleagues' at BC3, who one report indicated is likely to be wound up by the end of the week (what happens to the horses, I ask???), I came across these images.
Of course I didn't take them. My lovely friend Marg Clarke did. They are of yours truly, at Gilgai Farm, meeting All Too Hard's full sister and Black Caviar's half sister. She's a filly by "my boy" Casino Prince out of the champion mare Helsinge. I like to think we've bonded straight away, and I like that she came up to say hello, and liked me patting her.
Marg also took a photo of me with the school kids at the Statue Reveal. She said she thought I looked like a movie star, with the way the kids interacted with me. Whereas really we were all just being so excited about the statue of the Famous Pony. I hunted down a new flag for one of the little girls before the ceremony started. Hers was ripped. And we girls don't like broken things.... Marg was so excited about these pics. She's a great person.
