derrinstown stud This morning we received a note from Elliot Bhengu and Michael Ndlovu who are working at Sheikh Hamdan’s Derrinstown Stud in County Kildare, Ireland. Although flying can be tedious, especially over such long distances, our intrepid colleagues report that they enjoyed the flights very much. They have settled in well, are enjoying the people and are impressed with the beauty of the farm itself. In Elliot’s words “we are learning a lot to bring back home”.

This valuable exposure to life and work in foreign climes will set them in good stead for the future. They are due back in South Africa at the beginning of June, and we look forward to hearing more about their experiences.
