DC Freeze Branding Services was established in 1986 and is the Freeze Branding Business of choice for many of Australia’s leading thoroughbred studs. Some of these studs include:
Amarina, Arrowfield, Bowness, Coolmore, Canning Downs, Darley, Eliza Park, Highgrove, Goodwood Farm, Kitchwin Hills, Milburn Creek, Rheinwood Pastoral and Vinery.
DC Freeze Branding not only services the thoroughbred industry but carries out branding for all breeds of horses. We travel throughout NSW and QLD and no travelling fees are charged. We will come to your property to brand if you have one or two hundred horses. We carry all freeze branding requirements as well as numerical numbers in two sizes (1½ inch and 1 inch). DC Freeze Branding Services brand up to 4000 horses per year. Our professional services and knowledge allows for efficient and safe handling of your horses.
DC Freeze Branding Services specialise in manufacturing quality branding irons. We will make your stud or personalised branding irons to order and are very happy to help with your design. The branding irons can be made to cater for horses as small as a miniature to as big as a Clydesdale.

Kathy was a former top pony club rider winning many rider and hack classes at local shows and competed successfully at Sydney Royal. She now enjoys riding and training her own horses and competing at team penning.
Tim and Kathy founded Clovelly Australian Stock Horse Stud in 1993. Our horses are now bred and trained on our 100 acre property ‘Warrigundi’ which is situated at Currabubula 30km south of Tamworth in NSW. Over 100 horses have been registered carrying the Clovelly prefix.
