Baileys Horse Feeds
Baileys Horse Feeds is a family owned and run business, founded in 1982, with two generations working to progress equine nutrition in the 21st century. So many of the people behind the Baileys brand is that they are true horse men and women, with many of them not just owning horses but actively competing, racing and breeding them. This means that we’re familiar with the practicalities of keeping and feeding horses, we know the challenges our customers face and we understand their needs.
Our nutrition team constantly review the latest scientific research into feed technology and equine nutrition. All the ingredients we use are chosen because we believe they are the best for the horse and all are carefully selected for their quality and suitability. This, along with our meticulous production techniques, means that a bag of Baileys really is different from a bag of feed from another manufacturer; the digestibility is outstanding, so your horse gets more per scoop, with a balance of nutrients that means a Baileys-fed horse stands out with a glossy coat and superb muscle tone.
Our team of nutritionists is also available to offer no obligation, practical advice and to help you explore all your feeding options. They can be contacted during office hours by phone or email, certainly won’t advocate change for the sake of it and may simply reassure you that you are doing the right thing. For friendly, practical advice, the Baileys team are hard to beat.
The Kilmannan Stud was formed in 1992 by Bill Ireland at Kilmannan Farm, near Glasgow. The Stud began when Bill purchased an unregistered Dales-type gelding who he drove in Private Driving & In Hand classes with some success. As the pony was ageing, Bill decided to purchase a replacement in the form of Dales stallion Slaypits Black Magic.
He was primarily bought to drive but soon after he arrived it was decided that he should be shown under saddle. Since Magic arrived, mares were purchased and youngsters arrived and the stud now has in excess of 25 Dales Ponies. The Kilmannan ponies' successes in the show ring are too numerous to mention, but include numerous appearances at HOYS and Olympia.
By sponsoring the “NPS Scotland M&M working hunter championship” Kingfisher hopes to support the aims of the society in promoting awareness of our wonderful native ponies and providing a first class calendar of classes which show-case their unique beauty, rugged character and versatility. We wish everyone the very best of luck in the coming season and look forward to seeing you.
In addition the monthly Scottish Horse supplement – which was launched seven years ago after a gap in the market was spotted – is packed with advice from Scotland’s leading experts from veterinary care, feeding, a topical showing column as well as up-to-date news and independent features from award winning writers.
The weekly news, shows, and results service within the Scottish Horse pages of The Scottish Farmer magazine is a must read for all horse owners and riders with extensive coverage across all disciplines each week.
Our website www.scottishhorse.co.uk is updated daily with breaking news and show reports, has a look at it for more information and to be kept up-to-date with what’s happening in the equestrian world.
