In summer, the extensive marsh pastures located on the fresh North Sea coast and safely fenced in with wood offer the best air conditions for a species-appropriate and healthy grazing season. Of course, we check our pastures carefully every day with regard to the health of the horses, electricity and water supply.
During the stable season, we have two exercise halls integrated into the courtyard, as well as outdoor paddocks with joint-friendly mud flats, through which we ensure daily exercise. During this time, our broodmares are housed directly on the farm in our modern and well-kept stables. In addition to individual boxes, we have very spacious, video-monitored foaling boxes. Due to the advancing digitalization in our stable, we have also the 24-hour birth announcement. Combined with the almost daily presence of our long-term farm veterinarian Dr. Toralf Didik, we make an important contribution to minimizing risks for mares and foals.
Of course, regular hoof, coat and mane care is also part of our day-to-day routine to ensure that our horses have a good start in life and are permanently in the best of physical and mental health.
A sufficient supply of top quality feed also plays an important role here. First-class feed is therefore a matter of course for us. That is why we only supply our broodmares in the Krohn stable with oats, concentrated feed, roots and high-quality hay and straw that we have produced ourselves.
