Marriage! A change from horses!

Tragically in 1990, her imported Irish Draught mare, Anna, suffered post partum laminitis after her fifth foal. After battling for four months to save her, the battle was lost and Vanessa decided to marry college sweetheart, Frank.

She reduced her horse numbers and moved to Murray Bridge, SA. Her mission was to be a good wife but she ended up becoming the ‘snow pea picker supervisor’ for her husband’s employers.
