QUALITY ON LEGS: Barcoorah Gun Powder with co- owner Aiden Nunn. Tassie ropes in a top-gun KAROLIN MacGREGOR THE top-price stallion from one of the nation's premier Australian stock horse sales is now calling Tasmania home. Seven-year-old stallion Barcoorah Gun Powder was bought in partnership by Ben and Amy Grubb from Strathroy Pastoral at Breadalbane and Aiden Nunn from Longford. The stallion was sold for $20,000 at the Dalby campdraft and Australian stock horse sale in Queensland last month. Gun Powder was the only horse sold south of New South Wales and he recently arrived in Tasmania after a five-day trip from Queensland. Mrs Grubb said they knew exactly what they were looking for when they made the trip to Dalby. ''We actually had three stallions on the short list that we were interested in,'' she said. ''But after looking at and riding them, this stallion was the best by far. His temperament is exceptional, breeding totally in the purple, he is one of the last colts by Betterview Gunfire and he campdrafts like a demon.'' Mrs Grubb said they saw Gun Powder in action before the auction. ''He competed in the campdraft at Dalby on the Friday night before the auction with top drafter Mark Buttsworth riding him. He was really awesome to watch in action,'' she said. ''As a result the auction was really nerve racking and really really hot as Queensland was having a 42 degree-plus heat wave.'' Mr Nunn said they had been looking for a stallion to bring into the state for about six months. ''There are only a couple of stock horse stallions here in Tasmania, AI is really expensive and sending your mares to the mainland is a double whammy of expense for the owners and tough on the mares,'' he said. ''So we decided we'd better find a stallion we liked and get him to Tassie. ''Amy and I like the same kind of horses, we both play polocrosse and campdraft, so it was a good match to try and buy a great horse together. We were going to struggle to buy the kind of quality horse we were after if we just went it alone.'' They plan to use Gun Powder primarily for their own mares. He will hopefully be competing at the Tasmanian Mountain Cattlemens' Get Together early next month.
