Vale: Barbara Thomson
It is with the greatest of sadness that ApHANZ informs it’s members of the tragic passing of Barbara Thomson of Thomson Photography. Barbara was an icon of Equine Photography here in New Zealand and over the years she has photographed many of our Appaloosa National Shows and so very many of our special horses. I am sure that many of you will remember her personally and join with us in offering our sincerest condolences to her husband, Tom and their Family.

Please check out our lovely Tender Horse HERE, he might just be the horse that you have been looking for. Tender closing dates have been extended – have a look, then go and have a look at him. He is a lovely Appaloosa gelding, fully registered and kindly donated to the Association as a fundraiser. Is he YOUR next Appaloosa????
