Dee shares her duties between being a riding pony and a broodmare extroardinaire. Dee's claim to fame is the painting of her as a foal which graced the back cover of the ACPS magazine for many years. She was Pony Clubbed for several years, participating in Regional level dressage, jumper and a musical ride.

Dee also loves to be a mum, and when she doesn't have a foal at foot she babysits everyone else's!
