Wimpole's Shire horse project

Wimpole shire horses coming in from the paddock

Our heavy horses are going to get some new stabling that will allow the horses to be housed together for the first time and provide a better viewing area for our visitors.

If you like to see the Shires at Wimpole you might have noticed there is a limited view of the horses whilst they stand in their stalls, you usually see a horses backside.  The Shire horse team also work in three areas of the farm as there is no dedicated area to run daily events and demonstrations for visitors to watch.

What's the plan?

Building works and stabling will provide six new much larger stables, two stalls, a hot water wash box and more chances for people to learn about and meet the shires.

What happens next?

You may notice fencing up around the shire stables as we've started the building works to create the stabling within the old barns.  

The major building work is now finished. The next steps are painting the barns, installation of the new stables and fitting the special rubber crumb flooring. The work should be completed by Spring 2019 so make a note to come and see Murphy and his friends in their new home.
