Bubbles was a very dark brown mare with a sparkling white blaze. She was part of the brumby herd running in the Great Dividing Range, west of Mackay, in North Queensland.
Bubbles was rising three when the station roundup brought her to the training yards of Oakdale Station.
Young Bubbles was partnered with a young boy called Peter.
More about Bubbles can be read in the ebook just released: Little Australian Pony Girl- the updated and edited ebook.
The photo shows Bubbles with her first foal, a filly. Peter's mother is holding the mare and the photo was taken at Sarina in North Queensland.
