Australian Brumby Challenge ©

VBA zazu

VBA Zazu is an approximately 13.1hh dapple grey mare who was caught as a three year old from Kosciuszko National Park in 2015. She foaled quite late in the year, which is not uncommon in the younger fillies and therefore stayed with her foal after many of the other youngsters were weaned. 

VBA Zazu's trainer in the McDowells Australian Brumby Challenge is Amy Eighteen
