The yearlings have gone … well, not all of them – we still have around fifty more on the farm – with them now starting to be prepared for the Cape Yearling Sale (Book 2) in early March, and the National Sales at the end of April, etc.
The first half of our 24 yearling draft for the Cape Premier Yearling Sale (Book 1) left the farm early this morning and arrived at the Cape Town International Convention Centre about three hours later.
This afternoon, in very windy conditions – not at all conducive to loading yearlings into a transporter, the second group of yearlings were, thankfully, safely loaded and headed for the ‘Mother City’. 8 SILVANO’s, 3 JET MASTER’s, 2 DYNASTY’s, a VAR, a FORT WOOD, etc. ….. sounds like ‘and a partridge in a pear tree‘!
