A somewhat quieter day on the farm today – though, still quite hectic.
This morning we had some visitors from Germany come to the farm, and this afternoon have two prominent trainers scheduled to view the yearlings bound for the Cape Premier Yearling Sale at the end of the month.
As can be seen from the photograph above, SILVANO has quite the most incredible manners – testament to the handling he received by the legendary Monty Roberts who breaks in the Gestüt Fährhof yearlings.
Moving on to the yearlings ….. with our draft for the sale including no less than eight SILVANO (GER) yearlings, and five by JET MASTER, the interest in strong.
Other major stallions represeented in our draft include BLACK MINNALOUSHE (USA) with three, DYNASTY (SAf) with two, VAR (USA), FORT WOOD (USA), HORSE CHESTNUT (SAf), and COUNT DUBOIS (GB) amongst others.
Tomorrow we hope to be able to bring some early morning news and photos of the yearlings being exercised.
