We understand that your horse/pony has probably been a great companion, servant and friend over the years, and you owe them the best possible care and supervision. We work closely with our owners to ensure that whilst with us they receive the attention they deserve.
Our aim at Fedw is to provide a safe and caring equine home. We feel it is important that we not only keep our guests fit and well bodily, but mentally too.
Each horse/pony will have its own permanent stable and year-round grazing. All our stables are 15’ x 12’ internal boxes. We pride ourselves on our proper old-fashioned beds of straw on top of rubber matting.
Mostly horses are grazed in pairs, on large meadow fields around the farm. The fields are rotated at least once a month for the benefit of the horses and the land. We also have smaller paddocks for the guests who do ‘too well’ on grass. Restrictive grazing is also available for guests prone to laminitis or have EMS.
We have an internal Monarch four-horse Exerciser installed for use with our retired guests. We also have an equine hot shower area with full solarium.
We realise the importance to treat each horse/pony as an individual. Every horse will receive its own feeding plan including extra supplements, namely NAF Vitamin and Mineral supplement, Cider Vinegar, Garlic and Omega Oil. Pro-biotics are fed after worming etc. Additional supplements such as Devils claw, Cortaflex, Glucosamine, Farriers Formula, MSM etc are also available extras.
Although we harvest our own Hay and Haylage on the farm we only feed our horses haylage. We have this tested for Dry matter content and pH levels.
Along with our regular worming program Equine Dentist- Justin Pugh attends Fedw frequently throughout the year.
We obviously have a 24-hour call out Veterinary centre with a specialist equine vet on call to deal with both routine and emergency visits. Our eldest son Rhodri is a registered farrier so is always on hand for both routine and remedial shoeing and advice.
We have the full backing of the British Horse Society and initially became a British Horse Society 'Approved Livery Yard' way back in January 2003.
