The Brooms Head brumbies are safe

THE Brooms Head brumbies have not been lost to the area.

Instead the three horses, a mare with foal and a yearling, have been relocated to the property of Linda Elmir.

The fourth member of the mob, a white stallion, remains free.

Ms Elmir said she was glad to have the horses at her property "to keep them safe" and "together as a family group".

She said the thought of the brumbies leaving Brooms Head had been shattering for the community.

"Over the years the brumbies learned to live with the community and passed this knowledge on thought the generations," she said. "People at Brooms Head loved watching the brumbies grow up around them."

Ms Elmir said the horses were settling in and she planned to release them from their yard when they quietened down.
