It’s that exciting time of year again! The first foal of 2018 has arrived, a filly out of Tibesti by Muhaarar born at 5-45 last night. As as we prepare for a new season we are delighted to report that both mother and foal are doing well. It’s wonderful to have four new hooves on the ground as our busiest time of the year begins. We will keep you upto date as the new arrivals appear.
The foaling season is approaching and some of the mares at Norton Grove look big! There could be some foals on the ground very shortly so we are all on stand-by and ready. We will bring you the news as it happens!!
