at fairhill farm, we pride ourselves on providing top quality service.
It is important to us that your horse is given the superior care it deserves, and we have a number of agistment and on farm services available to suit your needs. We are located just an hour and a half from Sydney, allowing you to see your charge without the long drive to the Hunter. Our location also allows us access and proximity to top stud farms to ensure the safe cover of mares, with most being less than an hour and a half away. We offer an exclusive number of places to outside horses per year, and we welcome enquiries.
We provide agistment for mares on long term or seasonal stays. During the season special care is given to arriving foals. Legs and feet are checked regularly by our farrier to ensure any problems are treated as early as possible. Every care is taken to ensure that the mare is happy with her paddock mates.
We offer spelling for racehorses, and our facilities can accomodate your horse in a paddock of its' own, or with others. We also offer a choice of terrain, without compromising the pasture that your precious ones can feed on.
We welcome colts, and can accomodate for their needs in a paddock of their own or with others, without fear of fillies spoiling their play!
weanlings + yearlings
We provide agistment for weanlings and yearlings, and can accomodate them with others of their own age to ensure they are well socialised and happy.
On Farm Services
We are committed to ensuring that your mare has the best chance of conceiving. Mares that are difficult are of special interest to us. We have 24 hour on call vet service provided by Hunter River Veterinary Services. Peter Tabak, principal, is available to us at anytime of day.
mares under lights
We put dry mares under lights to assist them in cycling early at the beginning of the season. This is an optional service we can provide to you upon request.
Debbie and I have personally foaled down all mares on the farm for the last 10 years, and are committed to safely delivering happy and healthy foals. You can know within 30 minutes what your mare has foaled for you if you so wish, no matter the time of day.
Weaning is done in blocks of around 6 at a time, ensuring first class attention for each foal.
Standard feeds include morning and evening feeds with hay provided. Improved pasture ensures the horses ample intake of fresh nourishment also.
We are more than happy to accomodate any special feeding requirements for your horse. Get in touch to see what we can do for you.
