RODANN ROANIES CHEX
Reg: AQHA: Q-37235 ASH: 158814
Sire: Docs Spinifex Dam: Clover Foxy Lady (Click here for full pedigree)
THE BEST CAMPDRAFT MARE IN HISTORY, bred and owned by Rod & Anne Carpenter.
Rod and Anne had entrusted Pete with their beautiful and talented horses since 1983. Pete has ridden many great horses but the stand out as far as longevity, and remaining at ‘A’ grade for 14 years is a feat very few horses can and could ever claim.
Roanies career spanned from 2000-2014 with Pete.
SHE WON 221 RIBBONS, WINNING 62 DRAFTS (2 OF THEM JUVENILE COMPETITIONS).
ROANIES WON 4 HORSE TITLES AND ASSISTED PETE TO 20 OPEN RIDER TITLES.
Roanies will forever be a favourite of Pete’s as she was renowned for both her toughness and her sensitivity….”she never argued”. Obviously she was of perfect type and temperament to withstand 14 years of intense competition and travel.
Roanies greatness began with her breeding, she is by spinifex who has left his mark on the cow horse industry, and out of clover foxy lady who was a solid broodmare with many great performers, including the ones Pete had much success with. These were such as DOCS CHEXA (also listed on this page), FRECKLES CHEX, PEPPY CHEX, BATTLERS CHEX, STARETTA CHEX, and grandson SNAPLA. We truly believe a strong mare line is the key to breeding a great horse, and this mare line is very dominant.
ROANIES DAUGHTER’S PROGENY
DEEP CREEK RESPONSE – HSH
Reg: ASH: 129654
Sire: Romeos Repeat Dam: Deep Creek Whisper (Click here for full pedigree)
Pete owned Response since he was a young horse, and he was always ‘special’.
His career began in 2002, he won a Novice horse title and open horse title. He had 37 wins and 134 placings (48 of those were 2nds).
We retired Response in 2015 he was fit and healthy to be a foal sitter for his girlfriend Roanies foals!!
RODANN DOCS CHEXA
Reg: AQHA: Q-30687
Sire: Docs Battler Dam: Clover Foxy Lady (Click here for pedigree)
Owned by Rod & Anne Carpenter CHEXA was one of Pete’s all-time favourites. She was a half-sister to the mighty Roanies Chex, and she “was the best cutout horse I ever rode”
Pete campaigned Chexa from 1999 to 2004, in this time they won 18 drafts, 42 places and 24 cutouts and cutting comps. She won the Novice Horse Title in 2000 with a 6th in the Open Horse Title, she placed in the Warwick Gold Cup and won the Canning Downs in 2001 and an Open Horse Title.
We truly believe a strong mare line is the key to breeding a great horse, and this mare line is very dominant as seen with Roanies Chex and her progeny or other sisters that Pete campaigned. They were Freckles Chex (1996-1999), Battlers Chex (1999-2004, won and placed in 36 drafts winning 2 saddles),

Sire: Warrenbri Omega Dam: Deep Creek Whisper
Elegance is owned by the Winks family. She is a beautiful mare that Pete campaigned for a couple of years. She is now ridden by the whole family and they still compete on her.
Pete campaigned her from 2012 – 2014, she won 5 drafts, and won another 32 ribbons, running 2nd to Harry in the Novice Horse Title. She also placed in ladies’ drafts, was 3rd in the Chinchilla Grandfather Clock and 3rd in the Condamine Bell. Great type and temperament, we were lucky to have this quality of mare for the short time.

Secret was bred and owned by Bryony. She is a double cross of Romeo. Briefly campaigned due to work commitments Secret won her Novice in 2006, ran 2 ladies seconds and was equal 4th in the Landmark Classic Open draft in 2009, before she retired with an injury. Fondly remembered in the finals and picking up a ribbon, Secret is a lovely type and has a trainable temperament passing it onto her foals.

YANDALOO ODEAR (Grace)
Grace was purchased in 2012 from Libby Ingram, and Bryony acquired ownership as she was such a soft natured, easy going, older mare. She was trained and ready to have a bit of fun on whilst Bryony had a baby to consider. Gracie achieved 13 places in 3 years of competition including 4 seconds in big Novice drafts.
