Merriment

"It's always a relief when the last foal of the season is born"

last foal of the season rssIt is always a relief when the last foal of the season is born, where Miss Unimac delivered a beautiful A.P. Answer colt.

Even more exciting for the foals, was our first full sunny day in what seems like months. Here in a nursery paddock are 4 of the month old foals!! Merriment and her colt bonding, Fancy Flutter hiding behind mother, Collection Prive’s a bit pensive, and Ramp Model’s showing off her blaze!

This season Merriment is visiting King’s Chapel, Fancy Flutter and Collection Prive are visiting A.P. Answer, and Ramp Model will be making the trip to Mauritzfontein in Kimberley to visit Ideal World.

“All I want for Christmas…”

The ‘grandeur’ of the festive season has come and gone with many of us indulging in just a little ‘too much fun’. With a buzz of visitors to the farm over the past month, do you think our guests got what they wanted for Christmas?
