Coldstream Diamonds Are Forever-HSH is our young 4yo palomino Heritage Australian Stock Horse mare, currently 16.1h+, mature 16.2
h.  Bred by Wendy Ansell, Coldstream Park, in VIC, she was purchased by Skyview Stud in July 2010 as an 11 month old, as a future show and all-round performance horse, and potential stud broodmare.


Diamonds Are Forever (Delta) was selected for her good breeding, conformation, movement, great height for an Australian Stock Horse, and lovely clear rich palomino colour.

Her dam (Benediction) has excellent thoroughbred breeding with sire Bianconi (by Danzig, Northern Dancer) and out of a dam by At Talaq out of a Century mare.


Delta was ACE assessed (predominantly warmbloods) in 2010 as a foal receiving a Premium Award for 75.75% overall, with 77% conformation and 74.5% for movement, and assessor's comment "very nice canter".

Dilutes Australia - State Championships 2013 

- Sunday 15th December, 2013 


This was her third show (one as a yearling, one in Oct 2013) and second time out in public under saddle, still a green 4yo. 
 The second of the two main double points shows in the SA Dilutes calendar.

Very pleased with Diamonds Are Forever (Delta)'s behaviour, particularly under saddle on a busy, chaotic showground.  We're looking forward to her progress over the next 12 months or so.

Second time ever out under saddle - 4yo.
Delta coped with the atmosphere really well and we were thrilled with her work ethic in the middle of a very busy 8 ring show atmosphere.

Very proud of Delta, who achieved 1st place Mare 4y and over, Champion Senior Palomino and Grand Champion Palomino.


 First time out under saddle and first show since she went out once as a yearling.  ...  we were very proud of her.   Ridden pictures posted so we can mark the change and improvement over the next 12 months.


Delta and I were both pretty nervous, but together, we "got it done".  With thanks to our wonderful Judge for her encouragement and support for our first time out.

Delta (opposite) as a just turned 2yo - her winter coat is about 50% out now and WOW look at what is underneath!!

Palominos don't achieve their final coat colour depth until they are 3yo, so we are really looking forward to seeing what next year brings ...   or maybe what she's like in another 3 weeks ...
