The stud season at Bombora Downs is always a busy and exciting time of the year with mares coming and going, vet work 3 days a week and around 100 plus foals to be delivered and of course the putting in place of next year's foal crop.The rest of the year used to be known as the off season but with the ever growing need for the other services Bombora offers means we stay busy all year round.
Sale preparation, branding, dna and microchipping, education and weaning of foals and breaking in of older horses keeps us pretty occupied. The handling and growing out of young horses is enormously satisfying and is a role we are playing for more and more local breeders.
Whatever your requirements we are happy to tailor a program to suite.
Apart from being a beautiful part of the world the Mornington Peninsula has some of Australia's most fertile soil a mild climate and reliable rains. Following BIO dynamic farming principles, building soil carbon and biology levels with no synthetic fertilizers used. Capitalizing on the natural strengths of the region pastures on Bombora Downs are enormously productive and are a highly beneficial component of our horses' diets.
