As you know we purchased Wannalook N Talk from the Grafton horse sale in 2015. She caught our eye the minute we saw your videos promoting her for sale, and she continued to stand out to us. We bought her home to Bollon and our 7 year old daughter was the first to ride her and fell instantly in love. She is very well educated and has proved to be a versatile all rounder, with us drafting her ( making finals at the first draft we went to) and my daughter winning in the shows, pony club and she also is mustering on her. She is always complemented on how kind going she is.
We highly recommend Anna's horses and will definitely buy from Anna again if the opportunity arises.
Thanks for the great work you do with your horses.

We are the proud owners of two Kirkby Stud Rebound mares. Valeravale Reveal and one we purchased from Anna herself, Wannalook Sweet Heart. Both mares have unbeatable natures and both are beautiful types and have fitted in well with our program in that both mares have produced embryos for us this season (2019/2020). We can't wait to see the results of adding these strong performance genetics into our lines.

We first noticed Rebound in the ASH journal ( stallion section) and he caught our eye immediately. Eventually we organised to meet him, and were blown away by his outstanding temperament and athleticism. We put one mare in foal to him that season and we were thrilled with the resulting progeny, so we quickly booked another 2 mares to him for the following season.
During the painfully long wait for the foals, we managed to see Anna and Rebound competing again. It assured us that we were onto a good thing here.
We now have 3 beautiful fillies by Rebound, the oldest of which we are starting to break in now. She is showing the same trainability as her sire and we have high hopes for her.
Anna has been the best stallion owner we could have hoped for in regard to keeping us informed about our mares whilst in her incredible care. We look forward to continued success along side Anna and Rebound.

Just wanted to catch up with you and let you know how thrilled we are with our Rebound gelding. As you know he was only broken in, worked for a month, before winter, and turned out last year (2014). We purchased him in Feb this year ( 2015) and have found him to be the most sensible horse I have ever ridden. Before we even got him all the way home I was riding him while waiting for some chiropractor clients to turn up. He was not fazed in any way, even after all this time off. Since he has been home I cannot fault his temperament, balance and trainability. Without a doubt I would say he is the best young horse I have ever ridden. We are looking forward to breeding to Rebound in 2016. Cheers Karl Dehaen and Hayley Scott
I bought Wannalook Talks The Talk over 12 months ago. He has an exceptional temperament and is a very versatile horse. In the time that I have owned him we have won a cutout at a campdraft. placed in team penning, stockhorse shows, challenges and also cutting. In cutting he won the snaffle bit class and the beginner horse class in his first ever competition on the same day. He is also quiet enough to let the kids ride him around. I plan on letting my daughter also ride him at pony club events as he is also capable of coming right back for different rider abilities. He is truly a wonderful all round competitive competition horse. I thanks Anna for his great foundation training and believe that she has found a pretty special market for her horses, as these type of horses are what we all want but find very hard to breed and train ourselves. thanks Anna we are grateful to have found a horse with the looks, temperament and ability. Keep doing what you do!!!!!!

After watching the years of success Anna has had with her Wannalook Stockhorses, it was a no brainer when i started my breeding program to look her direction. After I saw Rebounds progeny and how lovely they are, the deal was sealed for me and I am thrilled with the progeny that I have by Rebound. I cant wait to breed to him this season and get more fantastic results. Well done Anna.
Thank you so much Anna for letting me draft your amazing mare Wannalook Talk Tactics. This mare has taught me so much about my own riding and drafting. Anna you should be proud of the team of horses you have at Wannalook Stock horse stud. I look forward to seeing your new young horses that you have coming along by your great stallion Rebound.
Thank you Donna Dean
