One of the great things about having a stud farm is people come and visit to talk about horses :-). We've had some lovely people to see Noggin and his babies and to discuss their mares. Considering we haven't advertised the stud this year apart from on this website its great that they have still managed to find us.
We recently had the farms residential status certified which is fantastic news and will now allow us to plan for the future a little easier.
The end of last week saw the end of the lambing for 2015. All ewes foot trimmed, wormed and then moved with their lambs into the bowl which has far too much grass. Trying to check that the lambs are with their mothers is hard work. If the lambs lay down, they cant be seen until you are on top of them. At least we won't be having to move them for a while.
Alan has been away at School. He is thoroughly enjoying life and I don't think will want to come home. He is a horse with a heart of gold but he has been a lot easier than I thought he would be. He just loves learning. He is on a mixed yard (stallions, geldings and mares) with daily turnout and has been great.
