Baileys Horse Feed Ireland.
In this modern world of big multi-national corporations, Baileys Horse Feeds remains quite unique in being family owned and run since its inception in 1982. This means we care about our products and how they work for our customers and their horses – we take it personally!
We manufacture to a strict code of feed safety and our “drug-free” premises are accredited to the Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS), which means our production methods and conditions are carefully controlled and conform to EU and UK legislation governing animal feedstuff manufacture. Our feeds are also monitored for the presence of specified naturally occurring prohibited substances (NOPS) as defined by the rules of racing and the FEI.
Our web site is a mine of information, check out the advanced Feed Finder tool, or simply email the Nutrition Team direct if you can’t find the answer to your specific question. Or keep in touch on the latest goings on here using all our platforms, or simply call us up! Click HERE to contact Judy Reynolds our agent in Ireland.
Serviced Annacloy – Stephen Duggan
Dr Esther Skelly-Smith BVMedSci (Hons) BVM BVS PCAC MRCVS launched Shanaghan Veterinary Services in 2017 which is Northern Ireland’s first equine veterinary referral service dedicated to providing an integrated approach to the veterinary treatment and care of horses. This includes veterinary Acupuncture, veterinary chiropractic, chronic pain management, rehabilitation and laser therapy.
Esther graduated from the University of Nottingham Vet School and went on to work in the world-renowned Animal Health Trust in Newmarket, working closely with Dr Sue Dyson. She is a published author of veterinary research and her work has been presented at the British Equine Veterinary Association Congress. Since her return to Northern Ireland she has worked as an equine vet for a mixed practice and an equine dental clinic while she was perusing further professional development in Veterinary Acupuncture and Veterinary Chiropractic. She is a professional member of the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncture and the Western Veterinary Acupuncture Group. She is also the Equine Council Representative on the North of Ireland Veterinary Association (NIVA) and the Honorary Secretary of the Association of Veterinary Surgeons Practising in Northern Ireland (AVSPNI).
Esther has been actively involved in the sport horse industry breeding Irish Draughts and Irish Sport Horses from an early age and “Shanaghan Horses” are now internationally recognised. She has also competed at a national level in dressage, working hunter, side-saddle and other equestrian disciplines. In her spare time Esther enjoys spending time on the family farm with her husband, her flock of sheep and her working sheep dog Shep!
The IERFC is a Bespoke purpose built state of the art rehabilitation and fitness centre in Lisburn, Co. Antrim. As we open the first equine water treadmill with optional incline open to the public in Ireland, we hope to revolutionise Irish equine rehabilitation.
Our goal is to provide care to the highest standards and give our tranquil setting as the ideal place for your horse to relax and recover. Our top class care is specialised for horses that require rehabilitation, convalescent care or fitness work.
To ensure every need of your horse is met with excellent care and facilities, we work alongside a team of excellent vets, chiropractor, dentist and farrier as we aim to help aid recovery and maintain soundness and fitness.
