New Stable Block and Open Day
In 2007 we expanded and improved the stabling and hospitalisation facilities with a new stabling building.
This houses a total of 12 loose boxes of which two are intensive care/ colic boxes and one is a specialised mare and foal box allowing a higher level of foal intensive care. This features a moveable partition allowing the foal, where necessary, to be separated from but still visible by the mare. This allows more intensive treatment of recumbent neo-natal foals such as warmth, padded bedding, oxygen therapy and fluid therapy. In addition the building houses two further examination rooms, increasing our capacity for in clinic investigations such as lameness investigations and dental procedures.
The new building was shown off to our clients in a relaxed informal setting at our recent practice open day. We were blessed with wonderful weather, a Stallion Parade of local Stallions was very well received and the prize draw and other activities raised over £350 for local charities.
