Happy New Year to all at Matchington and friends old and new hope 2016 is a fantastic year for everyone and its stops raining soon!
We have just had a super new CCTV system fitted to replace our older one and we are really happy with it. Ensuring the safety of the horses and their owners on the yard is very important to us.
We also have a visit from a nutritionist from Spillers due on the 6th Feb in which the horses will be weighed and owners given advice on feeding , which I encourage everyone to use .
At the end of Feb we will be having our first worm count of this year.
In other news we are having a lot of new fencing and gates put in for our summer grazing this should be finished by the end of Feb.
