JUDGE ALAN MAGID

Megan RomeynWe have many regular and devoted readers of our Summerhill Blog from all the corners of the world. Each day they log in to our Blog to read our scribblings, and catch up on what is happening on the farm and with the horses. Our readers are what make our blog, and without their continued input and support, we would certainly not be one of the most visited stud farm websites in the world!

One of the most avid of these readers is none other than retired High Court Judge Alan Magid. It seems that even during his retirement, he still likes to wield his pen and keep us on our toes with his comments about our various postings. Over the years that our blog has been going, the Judge has always found the time to comment and give his opinion on our blogs.

Here are some of his comments on our blogs over the years:

THE NATIONAL RACING AWARDS (August 13 2009)

“Bravo again to the whole team! Well deserved. And nary a spelling or grammatical error for me to correct.”

ROYAL VINTAGE AND HONOUR (March 7 2008)

“Really!! Thoroughbreds & “CINEMA”. Whatever will they think of next? And entertainment duty nogal. Whoever thought of taxing a horse’s “cinema”? I don’t think it’ll catch on.After all, it’s going to cost an awful lot to collect & won’t raise much for the fiscus.”

CURLIN CANTERS AT NAD AL SHEBA (February 21 2008)

“Does he have 4 whitsocks or are some of those white legs actually bandages? He looks flashy enough to be a Magid type horse.Ask Annet & Tarryn.Unfortunately out of my range.”

KENYA : NOT SO SURE ABOUT “WHITE MISCHIEF” BUT CERTAINLY A CASE OF DEJA VU (October 10 2007)

“Do you do it on purpose to make me practise my one-finger typing? The phrase is deja vu,not whatever you’ve put in your headline. However, I’m delighted to have something else to read other than all that stuff about Mr. Muir.Surely his first name is spelt “GREG”& not “GREIG”.Congrats to whoever (or whomever,whichever is correct) is responsible for today’s blogs- great stuff. Regards,Alan.”

SCHOOL IS OUT (December 4 2007)

“What a great story!!!!!! Does the school need a new, but old, teacher. I could teach English if mick had the time to teach me isiZulu.”
