What to expect
The day will start off with a foal parade explaining their ages, breeding and futures. Followed by a demonstration on lunging and long reining. Then we will have a specialised talk on how we assess a foal with the farrier and he will demonstrate how and why we trim a foal so regularly. We then have an exciting demonstration with the vet scanning two mares that are in foal. During the afternoon you can go and meet the horses in the stables and view the facilities including our all-weather turnout paddocks. We will close the afternoon with our “Guess the Weight of a foal competition” by weighing them in front of everyone and announce the winner.
There are no entry fees to the afternoon, but we are asking for donations for MND as well as the competition proceeds going towards this charity that is close to our family.
