Sold to Noel Day of QLD in 2000.
We selected PAPER MAN for his outstanding nature. He is totally ‘people friendly’ and has been since the day he was born. Always gentle, relaxed and affectionate. As a two year old, he was even ridden in company in only a halter when his rider forgot the bridle.
Paper Man has the true athletic bloodlines to make a significant contribution to the breed. Paper Man's sire Fintona Artist is one of the youngest grandsons of Chan (by Radium) available at stud today. Artist was shown and campdrafted under saddle in the South East of SA by Colin Byron with success. He is one of the youngest grandsons of Chan (by Radium) available at stud today. Artist’s dam was a polo bred Thoroughbred by the well known Dunwell Tudor Tinker (imp). In a short career Artist sired Royal, Futurity, open hack winners and good polo ponies, before moving into the ownership of Col Byron. Artist stood at Chalani for five years and was sold only to make way for Paper Man to stand at stud.

Chalani Paper Lace - Royal Show and eventing winner, Futurity/Maturity winner.
