Chance was so named as she was a twin (other twin was a black colt born dead). She was sold interstate after being broken in by Rebecca Griffiths. She was then further sold on and is now owned by Annie Hill where she lives on a station 90kms North of Mitchell, 65kms west of Injune and 180kms N-West of Roma in Queensland. |
Annie wrote in early 2007 to say:
"I'm delighted to tell you that Chance is going really well - quite a little stock horse now; she follows the cattle well; lays her ears back and loves the chase! She's an exceptionally good 'doer' - which is lucky considering the seasons of late. I look forward to her having a foal in the next year or two."

"We are having the best season here for many, many years - it just looks fantastic with water and green grass in abundance; fat cattle and healthy calves - a welcome change after years of drought. Chance did 2 weeks of mustering in Dec., and then we had to stop because of the rain. She is the most amazing 'doer' - she has acquired the nickname of 'Fatty' - she only has to look at the grass and gets fat! She is presently locked up in the yards on a 'Jenny Craig' diet! She'll get another weeks mustering next week. I intend to put her to our stallion 'ASHA Warrior' in September. Chance has certainly learnt a lot about cattle since I've had her (3 years) - and knows what she has to do - although I wouldn't say she is a complete 'natural', she has definitely picked it up. I look forward to crossing her with our stallion, who is extremely 'cowy'."
