We are delighted to announce that after a full guttural pouch examination of all the horses at Stockley Farm we are clear of strangles and able to resume busniess as usual.
The last few weeks have been a worrying time and we are incredibly grateful for all of the support that we have received from friends, clients, neighbours and the whole equestrian community.
It is a credit to the staff on the yard, Sarah Ebsworth, Kirstie Johnson, Tonya Hawkins, Abbey Plaice-Queen, Karen Carrell and Daniel Norris that we confined it to just the one horse. They have worked tirelessly over the past three weeks, maintaining very high bio security standards and keeping a very careful eye on all the horses to ensure no others became infected. Kerry Emms has also worked tirelessly in the office , keeping everyone informed of what has been happening and giving valuable support every step of the way.
A huge thank you to VT Vets, Helen Van Tuyll and her team have been a true support and we are hugely thankful that they were able to help us through it. They have spent some VERY long days at the yard and we really do appreciate their tremendous effort! Thank you also to neighbouring vets, Willesley and The George for offering valuable support and advice.
We are now very much looking forward to cracking on with our 2017 season and can’t wait to get out eventing next weekend 🙂
Thank you again to everyone for their support. Best wishes Helen and the whole team at Stockley Farm.
