Views from The Royal Queensland Show

Mick‘s trip to Australia is going well and he’s managed to visit Plaintree Farm and Glenlogan Stud, as well as judging at the “EkkA” (alias the Royal Queensland Show) in Brisbane.

As usual, he’s been in regular contact with the office and we await his phone calls eagerly for the next installment of the life of a traveling “judge”. His views on the Australian Thoroughbred classes should be particularly interesting, especially as this aspect of equestrian sport is far removed from our usual breeding and racing operation.

Mick’s trips abroad are never complete unless he receives the latest news from the farm, and at this time of the year the momentum is picking up as the early foals arrive. Of course local racing news is also of great importance, so he gets his daily update on this too.

The “team” will be meeting up with Mick in Johannesburg for the annual Equus Awards, where Summerhill will take the accolade for South African Champion Breeder, for the fourth consecutive year.
