Urgently needed for 15.2 gelding herd turnout or retirement livery, owners family circumstances have changed and she needs to find herd turnout or retirement livery for healthy 14 year old gelding. Currently on livery with grass turnout but about to change to winter livery which is stable and no grass meaning owner would need to exercise horse which she can't do with all the other commitments (commitments are likely to increase over next couple years sadly) gelding can be stressy if left on own or stabled and she needs to know he will be happy.

All suggestions in south west welcome, urgent situation.

Merlot for all suggestions

Not sure where you are but Newbrook Farm Equestrian near Dursley do retirement livery and are absolutely fab. The horses are cared for as if they were their own by wonderful people in a wonderful setting. Highly recommended.

I have asked another user who does,

now there used to be an ex user in devon who had a small stud and did retirement livery. I can't remember who or if they will still do though, I shall see if someone else knows ;)

Is that C? If so I won't ask her if you have!

Try Monshall retirement livery. It's near Dolton/Winkleigh. Very good by all accounts. Set in 500 acres, fields rotated regularly, rugs changed if necessary. They do have a Facebook page x

Its is horsey heaven! It's run by some friends of mine who treat all the horses as if they were their own. It's set in beautiful countryside with lovely big fields for turnout.

Henry Horn Is at Narramore Stud, Lustleigh, devon. The house is up for sale, but is still accepting liveries as she intends to move to a place and take the retirement herd with her.

I saw a post on the livery yard devon page on Facebook yesterday advertising a space for one retirement livery in Chudleigh Knighton.

Just a quick update, big thank you for all the suggestions which I passed onto friend. Horse is happily installed at Newbrook farm, she has been up a couple of times to check he has settled in and i dropped her off last week, she took him out for a little walk while I went to work then she took me to visit him in his beautiful big field. Field had loads of natural shelter and area is stunning.

From what I have seen I would highly recommend it (and it's not extortionate).
