Shane & Vicki welcome you to experience Hoofprints Of Change.
The majority of the horses you will meet at Hoofprints Of Change have been bred, raised and proudly trained by Vicki and her family. Vicki and Shane started breeding Australian Stock Horses back in 2002 under the prefix "Cattlecamp". This offers participants the re-assurance that Vicki knows her horses personalities and their individual traits. This offers Vour team unique insight into knowing which horses are suitable to be the perfect teachers at Hoofprints Of Change.
So who are the horses in the Team? You will meet Faith, the horse who inspired Vicki to start Hoofprints Of Change. Faith will make you smile with her beautiful eyes and soft heart. Other Team members are the vivacious Snazzy Jazzy Girl, Mr Boombastic who is aptly named, the delightful Muddy, our cutie-pie Plucka Duck and our new member of the family Bel, who is sure to steal your heart as much as she has ours.
"Cumalong" is not only the home to Hoofprints Of Change and the team, but also home to Chinchira Wagyu. You will find vying for your attention our beautiful Red Wagyu (Akaushi) and Wagyu cross cows and their calves. They love to be fed a biscuit of hay and enjoy attention. If you are lucky our friendly little Wagyu bull JT will give you a kiss on the cheek.
Not to be out done by the horses and the cows, are our faithfull and loyal four legged ringers Tippy, Sarge and Indie who are working cattle dogs. They LOOOVE a pat or three and will greet you with a loving smile.
Then there is our friendly feathered friends, the Barnevelder hens and their rooster. They love to be spoiled with a piece of toast and if you are lucky will reward you with some farm fresh eggs to take home.
