The horses live outdoors all year round in the mild weather  of Bay of Plenty New Zealand. Their diet is predominantly grass or hay. They have Clydesdale,Quarter Horse, Appaloosa, Standard Bred, Station Bred, Thoroughbred, and Arab bloodlines.  Some of the horses have been bred by the Maori indigenous people in New Zealand and they take pride in breeding calm natured, strong, good all rounder type horses and ponies for work in the bush pig and deer hunting.  Some of the other horses are Station breds, once again bred for their calmness and ability to work.
