A very sad story, but an important warning. Please fence off your Oak trees at this time of year We have LOTS of acorns this year, and because of the early autumn windy weather we are experiencing they seem to be dropping much earlier too. We know some of our horses have a taste for acorns, but we always fence off a wide area around the trees regardless. Clearing them up just doesn’t work, it’s impossible to know what your horse has eaten in between.
Acorn poisoning – please be vigilant!
Eazigrazer news (and other musings)

It’s well known that high level feeding from haynets can hinder correct respiratory function, but providing loose hay on the floor can mean more hay is trampled into bedding than is eaten. So is a low level hay manger the ideal solution? Not necessarily. Read why!
Wasp Nest Danger – Please Read
Poor horse. And owner. We get wasps in our wooden stables every year. If you see any wasps at all, take a minute to stand still and watch where they go. You will soon see if they are all heading in one direction.
Stabling during the heatwave?
Are you having to stable your horse during the day in this hot weather? We’d love a few more trees in our paddocks for shade, but unfortunately ours are having to make to do with being indoors to escape the heat and the flies.
