Memorial Native Garden Bed

Bay Story and Wunderwood have been cremated and laid to rest in the memorial native garden bed, near the horse paddock area at Living Legends, with memorial plaques as a sign of respect. This is especially relevant given the historic links Woodlands Homestead has with international horse racing, especially given that we are based under the flight path of airplanes travelling the world.
