Get Summer Ready

Get Summer Ready!!

 

Thank you to everyone for clearing out your rugs, all un wanted rugs will be donated to a local horse Sanctuary

This time of year is just a great time to have a clear out and a Spring clean. 

We hopefully can look forward to some Summer sunshine, and a lie- in !!!  

Our horses will also be looking forward to being rug free and to feel some summer sunshine on their backs.

 

The bluebells are in full bloom so do take advantage of a warm and relaxing evening hack through the bluebell wood.  We also have a new little path through Badgers Wood keep to the mowed path to guide you through.  Happy evening hacking. 

 

Get Summer ready !!! stock up on your fly spray and plan your competitions if you are going to be competing or just plan your Summer goals.

Most of all we need to enjoy our horses at this wonderful time of year. 

Please see our past post on how to keep your horse cool and happy this Summer.

All wormers will be given out as normal please do make sure that you are giving the correct dose for the weight of your horse.

There is a weight tape left by the British Horse Society for us to use.

Please do put the weight tape back in reception after use so that it is ready for other people to measure their horses weight.   

We have 16 horses that need worming this time. I have spoken to Ronald the Vet from Pool House and he has said the reason for this spike is that we have had a mild winter.

It is very important that we keep up with our poo picking of our fields and ideally 3 days is the maximum number of days for the poo to be on the ground.

The worm count cost is £7.20 including vat. Please put this in an envelope in the hot wash dosh box.

Any stragglers after Thursday – You will need to drop your own sample into Pool House Burntwood.

Can you tick your name off the list please when you put your sample in the fridge.

New horses to the yard will not need testing. You will fall in line with the next worm count in three months time.
