Incredible to believe we are now at the beginning of July. We have enjoyed some lovely sunshine in late Spring, here’s hoping it returns for the summer holidays. Laminitis has reared its ugly head and we’ve been to multiple cases in the last few weeks, do be vigilant and if you have any concerns please get in touch as soon as possible.
Today Thomas Anderson has started his apprenticeship with us. He is currently out with Nigel – the first day of the next four years! We welcome Tom to the team and wish him every success in the years ahead.
Competition success has continued with the team bringing home plenty of ribbons. Nigel and Alistair were successful at the Royal Welsh Spring Fayre in securing their places in the Welsh Farriery team for the year ahead. They will both compete at the British Farriers and Blacksmiths Association International Team Championships at Stoneleigh in September.
We were incredibly pleased to hear Robbie won the Championship at Devon County Show and Harry, Robbie and Liam were part of a team of four who secured an excellent 2nd place behind a very strong team in a competition at the Royal Bath & West. Harry, Robbie, Liam and Alistair once more secured multiple placings at the Royal Three Counties with Liam securing the Championship whilst Nigel judged the apprentice classes and (hopefully) gave useful feedback to the competitors there. It is so good to see both past and present employees doing so well.
Also good to see is our clients out and about having fun with their equine friends and winning lots of ribbons! We wish you continued success in the months ahead. Finally a welcome to new clients; there have been quite a few recently and we look forward to supporting you and your horses in the future.
