  • Gone International !!!

    What a day for PET Pastures. We have now gone International!!, this morning at 7am we took delivery of two 24 year old cobs from Guernsey having travelled on the overnight ferry. These two lovely horses, (pictures to follow) will be staying with us for a few days before they move to their new home in Sheffield – Mill Hose Animal sanctuary - http://animalsheltersheffield.co.uk/ . This has all been organised by Sue Vidamour from Guernsey Animal Aid - http://guernseyanimalaid.org.gg/

    • Soil sample for pH (it should be around 6 to 6.5) and nutrient levels to assess what is required

    • Pick up droppings to reduce parasitic burden and prevent selective grazing

    SPRING

    • Chain harrow, aerating and rolling to promote healthy grass growth and level poached areas

    LATE SPRING, SUMMER

    • Fertilise and lime according to soil samples

    • Control weeds such as buttercups, docks, thistles and nettles and first and third ragwort spray

    • Topping to encourage new leaf growth and increased sward density

    LATE SUMMER, EARLY AUTUMN

    • Weed control, as there will be another flush of weeds in August/September

    • Second spray for ragwort

    • Topping, as and where required

    • Harrowing and overseeding. If paddocks are to be closed up over winter, this will prepare them for a good start in spring

    WINTER
