Stud/ Foaling Services
Here at Willowsway Stud & Rehabilitation we offer a variety of different stud services, these include stallions at Stud, AI services, visiting Mares and foaling services.
Stallions at Stud
We have a variety of different stallions at stud all of which come from proven bloodlines on both side of their pedigree. When choosing stallions, we always ensure they have the best qualities and attributes of their breed combined with top class pedigrees, and proven competition records. All our stallions are graded with their relevant breed societies. They are all tested free from CEM & EVA each year. Please check out each stallion’s individual page for their full details and stud fees.
Here at Willowsway we have state of the art foaling facilities, combined with years of on hand experience from our dedicated staff team. Our foaling facilities include large double foaling stables, a foaling barn for those mares that require even more space, and an outdoor foaling paddock for mares that don’t cope well with being stabled or prefer to foal outside. We understand that every mare is different and therefore try to provide a range of foaling options to suit every mare. All our foaling areas are covered by CCTV and are monitored closely day and night. We also have an on-site foal watch room so staff are able to stay metres away from your mares to ensure they can be out in seconds to assist with foaling if necessary. During the day your mares are able to be turned out on paddocks close to the yard to ensure they are always in view of staff as well as being closely monitored and checked regularly.
Your mare will have the very best care whilst at Willowsway, being looked after by our experienced staff team and also our excellent veterinary specialists. North West Equine Vets, are specialist equine only vets who offer full stud services and are highly experienced in breeding. Although we test the quality of mares colostrum after foaling It is recommended that once born all foals have IGG blood test to ensure they have received enough quality colostrum from their mother.
Once foaled your mare can return home once we are happy that both foal and mother are doing well and they are fit for transport.
