collecting our poo ready for testing for worms

I would like to say a big thank you to Ronald Bodnar from Pool House vets for coming to give us a talk on our worm count programe that we run here at Court Bank Farm. 

The talk was both informative and enjoyable.

The most important thing that came across was how important the management of our pastures are and how much it contributes to our successful worming programme. The enviroment our horses graze in is the single most important factor. 

As a yard we are very pro active in removing our horses droppings from their grazing which is done regularly and it is certainly the right thing to do. Ronald advised us that ideally the poo should not be on the ground for any longer than three days.

Thank you to everyone who came to support the evening. I think alot of people were suprised by just how much time and effort that Ronald and Court Bank put into our worm count programme. Ronald discusses every single horse that needs worming with Viv asking important questions regarding age and their history so that he can make an informed decision regarding the worming products used for that particular horse.   

 

The cakes went down really well and I would like to say a big thank you to Angela Trawford who made them for us they were delicous.
