We've been busy so lets see what's been happening ........
All mobs have now been weaned. Handling continues for the latest mob as they get used not having mum around. Still a couple of youngsters to go but they will be done separately and then introduced into the groups as they get older. The cold weather has brought on their winter coats.
Bombora Downs caters for a number of spelling options.
Larger single paddocks are available that allows for the kick up of heels, specific feeding regime or just a laze and pick at the green grass. The paddocks are surround by well grown trees to cut down the cold winds in winter plus rugging is available.
We also have several smaller paddocks for spellers that might need that extra care for injury or rehab.
Bombora Downs can group horses together as a small mob if a longer spell is required. Contact Christoph if you would like to discuss your spelling requirements.
Sad to say that Sally has departed Bombora Downs to pursue non-horse related pursuits. Sally has been involved in every facet of Bombora Downs life from feeding, foaling down, weaning, sales preparation and attendance, etc. etc. etc. Before joining Bombora Downs, she also did track work and stable hand duties for Mornington trainers. We wish Sal all the very best in her new vocation and guarantee a warm welcome whenever she drops in.
Work has started on the new layout for the paddocks at the Beds For Tails property. The old pine trees needed to be removed and now that has been done, work begins on mapping out the laneways and fencing the new paddocks. Trees and bushes native to the Mornington Peninsula have been ordered and will be planted as the new layout takes shape. The property will be developed to “house” the weanlings growing into yearlings in the coming years.
