THE South East Queensland Brumby Association has found homes for six more brumbies that were trapped in a bid to reduce the number of horse-versus-car accidents along roads that front state forest.

The Gympie Times reported in December 2009 that the association, headed by Anne Warmbrunn and Terry Wilson, worked with Forestry to trap 10 brumbies that were taken to Anne’s Cootharaba property, where they were kept for two months until they had quietened down and could be halter led.

Once at that stage, Anne sold the brumbies to recoup the feeding and other associated costs.

Terry said yesterday a further six brumbies had been sold to good homes.

“We’re keeping one to train up and take out to promote the association,” he said.

“We have three left. At the moment we’re pretty much doing fundraising for the association.

“We’re organising a ride but we haven’t put the final details in place yet, and Bunnings is holding barbecues at Noosaville and Maroochydore and we run competitions and sell raffle tickets at the Eumundi markets.”

 If anyone would like to buy one of the brumbies, they can contact Anne or Terry on 5485 3369 or email seqbrumby@hotmail.com
