My friends have lived on this farm for just on ten years now. They swapped a boat and a d-media communications company for something much more physical and just as intellectually challenging. They both work very long hours, seven days a week. On the positive side, they network and play hard, too. Together they designed the shape of the farm. Gail had always been enamoured of horses, so they were carving out a horse stud.
Peter carved the paddocks, clearing them, rationalising them, fencing and watering them. Gail studied up on breeding and nutrition, and does all the animal husbandry work. They sell young horses at auction, and race others. They are successful at both. With any sort of luck, I will tag along to the Inglis Thoroughbred sales in Randwick towards the end of winter.
