Blakeney is a small, thriving village on the eastern edge of the Forest of Dean, on the main A48 road between Gloucester and Chepstow. It was at a house called Hawfield that Thomas Stenhold was born. He was Groom of the Robes to Henry VIII and his son, but is renowned (along with John Hopkins of Awre) for publishing the first metrical version of the Psalms. The house where he was born still exists in the village. Thomas Sternhold died in 1549.
Apart from the many attractions of Blakeney, there is a flourishing agricultural economy in the surrounding areas. Beef and dairy cattle are kept on farms of all sizes, from small family units with just a few head, to larger commercialised dairy herds.
Whatever the size of your herd, the risk of cattle lameness affecting their yield and well being is the same. That is why many farmers in the Blakeney area call in NJB Hoofcare for:Photo from Featured Project near Blakeney
