    Hi, my name is verlynn and I had a dream since I was a little boy that I want a stud farm. I want to know where can I find an investor to help me fund this business. I've find a place where I can board the horses that covers fouling, vet, spelling and pre training. I also know which company to use to insure my horses. I really want my dream to become a reality and I love horse racing. I'm from South Africa, Cape Town and there is a mare and weanling sale coming up in May. I've already gone through the catalog and know which brood mares I want. I think starting with 2 for now will be good. So please if anyone can help I would really appreciate it. This is my dream and my life. Email me
