DE NOVA DESERT DRIFT
Drifter's latest escapade - thought I was giving him a break from his usual yard. A mare in season got out and backed up to the fence. Drifter thought he had a chance despite being 32 years old. Luckily no permanent damage and he was really ashamed of himself, wouldn't look at the camera. Luckily I had Woofers willing to dismantle the fence to get him off.
DE NOVA DESERT DRIFT was born in 1981 has been the stud stallion since 1984. I was going to geld him for my riding pony but his first show changed that idea.
In 1982 I took Drifter to his 1st show at Angaston Show and he won his class Colt 2 yo and under.
Drifter has charisma and such a lovely personality, a real character and very gentle with children His excellent temperament makes him easy to handle where ever we took him.
In 1984 we moved from Point Pass to Kongolia. We had no suitable stallion facilities, so Drifter was leased to Max Loffler of Pine Park Stud at Stockwell. He sired many Pine Park ponies.
When he returned to us he hadn’t been ridden for 3 years. We started preparing him for showing him again. He has won many Champion and Grand Champion ribbons over the years.
