New England Stud has excellent facilities to offer throughout the stud, providing the complete range of boarding facilities for broodmares, yearlings and foals.
Each part of the stud is separated into small units with their own stables, paddocks, veterinary facilities and loading ramps thus minimising movement around the stud. We are fortunate to have our own bore hole which draws water from the underlying limestone basin.
Our established pastures, surrounded by wonderful mature trees, provide excellent grazing for mares, yearlings and foals.
Our night watchman is on full time duty, seven nights a week throughout the stud season; Outside of the season we have regular checks on horses including during the night.
The majority of our boxes include heat lamps in case of sick foals or cold weather.
The management of the mares and foals is of the utmost importance to us and we have TV monitors in many boxes which are viewed regularly. All of our foaling boxes are rubberised on the floor and walls which minimise any chance of injury to the new born foal and mare.
Our vet, Huw Neal M.R.C.V.S. a senior partner at Newmarket Equine Hospital is on call seven days a week and can be present at the stud within five minutes.
All owners are kept regularly updated with news of their foals with photographs and telephone calls.
New foals start life with their mothers in the nursery paddocks where they remain for a few weeks on their own.
As foals age they are gradually introduced to the other mares and end up in pairs until they eventually move into larger groups with other mares and foals where they graze in the stud’s picturesque sheltered paddocks.
Our own horsebox walks mares into local stallions at the likes of Dalham Hall Stud, Cheveley Park Stud, Juddmonte Farms, Newsells Park Stud, Shadwell Stud as well as further trips; this ensures that our own staff oversee this important and stressful activity. Knowing the mares and foals so well makes it a much more straightforward and less stressful experience.
