The farm now has 300 acres of grassland, a third of which are permanent pasture fields bordering the river Thames. Just over 80 acres of this grassland is available to be grazed by horses throughout the year. During spring and autumn months, when sadly grass can become too abundant for some horses, we count ourselves lucky to have a suckler herd of cattle which we
make use of to eat off the new growth before horses are rotated to new their new fields.
We try to group horses or ponies into grazing type wherever possible so that those prone to getting too fat don't get too much grass and vice versa. We also allocate small paddocks when necessary to those sick or convalescing.
