Hi, we are a small family run farm in Co Tipperary, Ireland and we breed horses for National Hunt racing and have dry stock cattle during the summer. Horses are our first love and we also have two dogs, Obaci and Kiki, and two cats Black Eye and White Eye. I also have a small enterprise and I sell my produce in local Farmers Markets.
