VBA Bridie's Joy

Bridie's Joy's mother, VBA Faith was caught whilst pregnant from the Bago State Forest as part of an ongoing Brumby Management program in place there. Joy was born at our Brumby Junction Sanctuary on the 21st of May, 2018. Born at such a late stage, Joy, a stunning copper chestnut filly, was left with her mother until she was almost 12 months old to let her gain as much benefit as possible from learning the perfect social ways of our wild ones.

VBA Joy's trainer in the Australian Brumby Yearling Challenge is Sandy Varker.
