Updates – Go My Own Way
November 10th, 2018
She has been renamed and will now be known as “Scoot Over Hogg”.

The Master of My Fate filly arrived at Alysons around lunch time yesterday. She is the filly off the National Yearling Sale that we sent down to Soetendaal, in the Karoo.
She has done well during the frosty winter and still has a winter coat. That is expected and she will shed that in no time, now that she is in Durban. Alyson mentioned that she slept all afternoon yesterday after that long drive and she was already trotting at track this morning.
Almost all of our horses are in now, we just have The Wylie Hall colt (Son Sastre – National 2 Yr Old Sale) and the Irish Flame filly (KZN Yearling Sale) that are both still in Mooi River and should be coming in at the end of this month.

Go My Own Way has spent most of the winter in the Karoo, on the well-known Soetendaal Spelling Farm. Obviously, with the harsh winter associated with the Karoo she is looking very woolly at the moment. Once spring takes hold she will lose her winter coat and look a lot prettier.
She has been broken in and is currently trotting and walking quietly at the moment and Julia Pilbeam has reported that she is a very smart filly, feisty at times, but she goes about her business with plenty of enthusiasm. She has grown into a smart young filly and is ready to go into training.
She will be making her way up to Durban at the end of this month, where she will join up with Kevin and Alyson Wright.
We can’t wait to see her don the Yellow with Purple stars in a few months’ time.

From the National Yearling Sale, we made the decision to send her down to Soetendaal in the Western Cape to be broken in.
This is one of the top spelling farms in the country and horses seem to thrive in harsh winter conditions synonymous with the Karoo.
Due to the time of year, she was forced to spend two weeks in quarantine. As parts of the Western Cape are considered exclusion zones for horse related air borne diseases, horses are sometimes required by law to spend time under quarantine to ensure that they aren’t bringing any contagious conditions with them. Unfortunately, on the day she was due to be released after spending 2 weeks in quarantine, there was an outbreak of African Horse Sickness in the region and she was forced to remain in quarantine for a further 3 weeks.
A slight setback, however she made her way to Soetendaal at the end of June where she has done exceptionally well. We are looking forward to seeing her in the flesh at the end of September, for the first time in 5 months.
