Mares should arrive at Stud with shoes removed and wearing a well fitting head collar. All mares should have been wormed within a few days of arrival.

NES is serious about its bio security here at Cowling hill farm. We require all mares to be tested for the following prior to arriving here.

            CEM (Contagious Equine Metritis)

            EVA (Equine Viral Arteritis)


We understand that should a mare test positive to Strangles then it should be further tested with Guttural pouch swabs to determine whether it is a carrier or just has the antibodies present as is the case where a horse has had the disease and recovered from it previously.

Certificates showing negative results along with the identification passport must accompany the mare upon arrival. No mare will be permitted entry to Cowling Hill Farm without these.

Please use any disinfection mats or sprays where supplied and avoid contact with other yards prior to your visit here so as to take every care not to bring any infection with you
