Wednesday 12th February, our sheltered valley was hit by fierce winds that were battering most of South Wales – and the ‘old barn’ bore the brunt. The roof was torn off and most of the back walls collapsed. There were 4 horses in there at the time, including one of our stallions McCoy, and three pregnant mares – unfortunately one of them, Flyer, escaped with a superficial wound on her neck, but the vet has reassured us that it’s only a surface cut and has stitched her up nicely. None of the other horses were hurt. They had a lucky escape really!
