Boarding & Foaling


We board both mares and youngstock, and have a separate farm which is dedicated to rearing and producing strong, well developed individuals. When ready, they are then prepared for the sales or to start their education under the saddle.

Over 60 mares for both disciplines board at Mickley Stud, and we advise owners and breeders on fertility, choice of mating and we will also arrange all necessary paperwork and transport for mares visiting an outside stallion.

We are fortunate to be able to call on the expertise of our expert fertility vet, who visits us several times each week, and who is able to determine the optimum time for a mare to be covered.

We also have a dedicated night staff who observe all the expecting mares in the foaling shed throughout the night, on hand and ready to assist mares during foaling, and Richard is always on call, should a difficult foaling present itself.
