Bowland Celebration

4 year old filly


Sire Caerba Legacy Dam Bowland Double Diamond,


Typical Irish Draught temperament, nothing phases this filly, not even a chicken hopping on board for a quick ride! Henrietta the daredevil chicken is quietly working her way through the whole block one horse at a time.

Early arrival is a lovely surprise for one of our clients

Not one to make a fuss, our clients broodmare produced her first foal within 24 hours of entering the foaling box!!


This surprise arrival for our clients, born a week earlier than expected is a fabulous part-bred filly by Caerba Legacy. 

Congratulations to all concerned.


Eventful Easter sunday at Closes Hall!!

The first pure bred Irish Draught foal of the 2019 season was an exciting easter sunday arrival for us here at Closes Hall Farm. 

Bowland Bracken Breeze has produced us a lovely chunky colt foal by Caerba Legacy.
