THE TROUBLE WITH RESOLUTIONS!

Healthy Horse

Happy New Year!

2012 has already kicked off at a cracking pace...

The trouble with New Year's resolutions is that by the time one has made them and thought about implementing them, the year is already ticking along into February and onwards.

Some people don't belive that the new year is any different to the old, yet the difference of that second hand on the big clock ticking away the old year and heralding in the new has a pshycologically refreshing benefit for most of us.

It allows some wiping of the slates to allow us to start anew, whether within our physical or mental selves, work and ambitions, aspirations and goals. Whatever we are looking to change or improve, the new year certainly provides a renewed opportunity to focus on those things.

2012 has already kicked off at a cracking pace, particularly for Justin Snaith and the connections of Gimmethegreenlight who won the L'Ormarins Queen's Plate in a very exciting race. Our congratulations to all.

This month also sees the running of the J&B Met and the CTS Cape Premier Yearling Sale to be held for two days before, on the 26th and 27th January. We wish all our Vuma customers the very best as they show off their horses to the world.

This year will also see a number of South African riders competing at the London Olympics and we look forward to watching their progress!

Speaking of refreshing; we have refreshed our bags, to a shiny, recyclable BOPP version. While keeping your feed fresher, they are very striking and hard to miss, so keep an eye out for the green and gold, as you will see them coming into your feed store.

To all our Vuma clients, we wish you the most successful and rewarding year ahead, knowing that Vuma will be there when it matters most.

"Will you be where it's all at?"

The place to be for the next five days is the Mother City!

Cape Town is always full of exciting things to do but never more so than the next five days as the inaugural Cape Premier Yearling Sale gets underway at the International Convention Centre near the Waterfront. Wednesday 26th January is the first viewing day at the sales ground, with the sale itself kicking off on Thursday 27th at 4pm, until 9pm and continuing at the same times the following day.

Saturday sees the 129th running of the R2,5 Million J&B Met Grade 1 which promises to be a cracker, with the stalwart Pocket Power in his swansong appearance, against, among the field, his three stable mates as well as a strong hand from Mike de Kock, including Mother Russia, winner of the recent L'Ormarins Queen's Plate.

This new sale is bound to be very interesting with a strong catalogue, well represented by most of the top Cape Studs and a sprinkling from KZN. With the massive international interest in our SA bred horses, generated by the performances abroad of the likes of J J the Jet Plane, River Jetez, Jay Peg, Imbongi and Zanzamar, we can look forward to more than a few bids from international buyers!

Added to the reputation of our South African horses is the sheer value that they offer when compared to the purchase prices of yearlings bought at sales across the globe. Training costs are also less than elsewhere and no one really needs an excuse to visit our magnificent country!

We wish all of our Vuma clients  well and look forward to their continued successes! The Vuma team will be there in support, proudly South African and proud to feed your Champions!
