CHILLS AND EQUESTRIAN THRILLS

Warming up for Winter!

With a sudden gust and very little warning we seem to be well into autumn and heading for winter!

The days have been considerably cooler and all our horse blankets have been hastily taken out of their mothballs!

With winter almost upon us, now is also the time to reassess your feeding programme and make sure that you have stocked up on hay and Lucerne for the winter as, within another 6 weeks, pasture grazing will be greatly reduced as the first frosts hit us.

Bear in mind that horses use energy to keep warm, so if they sleep out, they will require more feed, preferably in the form of good quality roughage to maintain their body-weight.

Moving from chills to thrills, the Nissan Easter Festival is on at the Kyalami Equestrian Park and we wish all our Vuma clients a great weekend's competition.

The end of the month sees the Midfeeds-sponsored show at Maple Ridge and Vuma will be there too, to support our competitors.

Over the same weekend, from the 27th - 29th of April, the Bloodstock South Africa National Yearling Sales will be held at the TBA Sales Complex in Germiston. Most of the horses will start arriving around the 19th to settle in and will be ready for viewing. The catalogue is made up of some very nice individuals, so is well worth some close inspection.

Saturday the 28th of April sees the culmination of the Highveld Autumn season with the running of the SA Derby and SA Oaks on Champion's Day at Turffontein racecourse. This is always a great day out with some very exciting racing, including the President's Champions Challenge, the Computaform Sprint and the Gold Bowl.

So although winter is on the way, April holds a lot in store for us to keep the chills at bay!

Midfeeds goes Green!

The Midfeeds Sales Team

Midfeeds, stockists of Vuma feed and our biggest retailer, was awash with green instead of their usual orange.

Quite by coincidence Marquerite Oberholzer, Jacqui Wood and the sales team arrived in their Vuma T-shirts. We love to know that we are top of mind when they get up in the morning!

Midfeeds is based in Kyalami on the R55, near Crowthorne and are stockists of the full range of Vuma products. They can be contacted on 011 468 1824.
