High demand for Guy Fawkes brumbies
AFTER 10 years of selling Guy Fawkes brumbies the demand for the horses has almost outstripped supply.
Guy Fawkes Heritage Horse Association founders Erica Jessup and Graeme Baldwin last year sold 100 of the horses caught in the Guy Fawkes National Park, west of Dorrigo.
They now have just three left in their stable and are keen for the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) to begin its 2015 trapping operations.
Ms Jessup said the actual number of horses is not the problem with an estimated 1700 running free in the park.
She said the main issue is the number the NPWS traps each year.
