Breeders > Moutonshoek Stud


Moutonshoek has large paddocks on limestone-rich soil.  The equine athletes play, run and grow up strong with good bone.  Oats, lucerne and teff for own consumption is produced on the farm.  Table grapes and citrus for export, as well as beef are also produced here. Their first horses were sold at the National Yearling Sale in 2006.  Each of their first two tiny crops to race produced a STAKES PERFORMER (14% stakes performers to foals born).

Moutonshoek now stand two magnificent stallions – Mambo In Seattle (USA) in his 6th season  and Marchfield (CAN) in his 3rd season. There are currently 127 broodmares on the farm.


MOUTONSHOEK is the passion of Chris Gerber, a Johannesburg businessman, and Dr Bennie van der Merwe, veterinarian.  Chris is a dyed-in-the-wool racing man and a director of the Racing Association.  Bennie has worked with thoroughbreds for his entire professional life.

Horse manager Karel Skirmaans has been involved with breeding thoroughbreds his whole life, cutting his teeth under the tutelage of the legendary John Kramer.  Pieter Odendaal is the General Manager and is assisted by twenty staff in the horse section.

Moutonshoek welcomes visitors to this most beautiful valley.
