Kongaderra Creek - Angela Tiede

you can just see for miles

When Angela Tiede first brought her horses to her block in Clarkefield, she didn’t know anything about horses, or grasslands, or Spiny Rush, or fencing. She had been working 70 hours a week in the publishing industry, when she met a woman outside Tylden who had horses rescued from the meatworks.

They were Walers, a fabled Australian breed, tough as nails and with tremendous stamina. Angela had heard about these horses as a kid, from her uncle, who used to round up wild Walers for the saleyards during the Great Depression. 

Angela ended up with two horses: the pair had grown up together, and she couldn’t separate them. Next step, find a block of land, then set it up for horses.
