NJB Hoofcare - Area of Operation for Swindon, Wiltshire

Although many people see Swindon as a huge, sprawlig metropolis, it is surrounded by delightful countryside and villages such as Hinton Parva, blessed with several picturesque thatched cottages and a Saxon church. On the edge of the village is the National Trust's 'The Coombes', where medieval strip lynchets are preserved in a steep-sided valley. These are evidence of the open fields farming practice of the day and were commonplace among the chalky hills of Wessex. The name comes from the Old English word "hilinc", meaning ridge or mound. The most commonly accepted reason for their use was that in the 13th and 14th century, communities were becoming over populated and land hungry, there wasn't enough easily farmed, low lying arable land to go round, so the hills were scarred with ridges to provide viable farming area where there previously was none. Other explanations are available, but we prefer that one. What we also prefer is to have zero lameness in cattle in the Swindon (or any other) area, so very often find ourselves visiting farms there to provide:
