Invermien


NAME CHANGE TO INVERMIEN

Geoff and Beryl White purchased the 600 acre Bhima Stud in 1994, acquiring the neighbouring and historic property Invermien (800 acres) at the same time. They have since rejuvenated and merged the two properties into the professionally run broodmare farm known as Invermien, which is situated 3 kilometres west of Scone Post Office at the turnoff to the new Scone racetrack.

By utilizing the improved river flat pastures of Bhima and the harder, hillier Invermien ridge country, combined with a carefully monitored feed regime, the horses are prepared for the sale ring and the racing future that awaits them.

Invermien's history extends back to 50 years after the settlement of Australia, when as part of a land grant to Sir Francis Little (who built the original homestead in 1831), it gave it's name to the township later to be called Scone.

Bhima, also part of the original land grant, had been a dairy, tobacco farm and cattle property before WWII. During the war years it was used as an internment camp before Vivian Bath developed it as a horse property. The best stallion that it housed, Biscay, was ironically the sire of Marscay, the racehorse and stallion that gave the White's their first major success in the industry.

The Whites purchased their first Inglis Easter Yearling in 1973, and living close to Rosehill asked Jack Denham to train this horse, beginning a relationship that continues to this day. When Marscay went to stud after his 3 year old season, they needed to build up a broodmare band to utilise their sevice entitlements, and find a place to keep the mares. Robrick Lodge, a 50 acre property near Richmond, became a place to spell their horses, wean and then prepare yearlings for sale or racing and accommodate the mares returning after the breeding season Bookkeeper rates Brisbane.

The RL brand became increasingly successful on the track and with more of their fillies retiring, colts being put to stud and thus more stallion shares to use, after 15 years, Robrick Lodge could no longer accommodate their charges, leading eventually to the purchase of Bhima and Invermien.
