Here’s an uplifting story to conclude Women’s month: A group of Afghan girls who have toiled and fought for years to get educated have just been liberated from turmoil in Kabul and offered international robotics scholarships – thanks to the caring work of an American woman with 11 children of her own.


Even amidst difficult times there’s much to give us hope and inspiration. Just switch on the Paralympics; how proud we are of our SA competitors winning 5 medals so far - 3 Gold medals, 1 Silver and 1 Bronze. And how about our majestic Cape mountains royally dusted with snow? Plus it’s the start of spring – a time of blossoming and new growth and a time to sow for the future.


There are plenty of reasons to celebrate Spring - here are a few to entice you:

Accessibility and proximity. Right off the R44 in between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, with all the magic of the Winelands and views of Table Mountain.

Oratorio has started the season with impressive statistics and Talk of the Town (Var’s only son at stud) has shown remarkable first season covering ability. We’ve also just seen the arrival of his first foals. Exciting times are ahead.


Spring is upon us, which means foals are at foot and covering season has started. Don’t miss a covering opportunity to one of these incredible Stallions!
