Big thanks to all of those who helped us at the Cape Premier Sale when we had a problem with one of our colts. He had a suspected colic during the sale and in those restricted quarters there is not much place you can take a yearling for a walk to settle him down or a sand paddock if he insists on rolling.
Many thanks to Pieter at Klawervlei who spontaneously offered their truck to take him to the vet hospital.
Also many thanks to those at Baker & McVeigh vet hospital that treated him so quickly so that he could return to the sales ring and a special thank you to Michael Sham at New Turf Carriers that send a special transporter in the midst of Friday evening traffic to bring him back to the sales ring. He arrived back in time (almost !-he went in three lots later) where we sold him successfully.
Also many thanks to the purchaser for having the faith to buy him in spite of all of the drama unfolding- he is such a characterful colt that I am sure he will repay you handsomely. Thank you too to all of the other purchasers that supported us so well.
Ian and Nina Robertson
