Short blog today as we've had an even busier week than normal down here. Its a good job my nephew Sam has been here to help because there is not only all the work with the rehab horses to be done but lots of fencing.
Its great having the tracks, and in the weather we have had this winter they are even more invaluable as they provide well-drained turnout no matter how much rain we have had. But having horses on them and a huge amount of annual rainfall inevitably takes its toll on timber and we had to replace a whole section of track this week.
I say "we" but have to admit that Andy and Alan did all the work on this, and very smart it looks too. Now all we need is for the fog to lift...!
A diary of whats happening at Rockley, whether its news on rehab horses or on our own horses hunting and competing. All the horses are barefoot, and the blog includes updates on hoof rehabilitation and information about barefoot performance.
You can find out more about research, rehabilitation and our horses on the pages above or at our website: www.rockleyfarm.co.uk.
