New horses come to Rouse Hill House and Farm


Meet the two latest members of our Rouse Hill House and Farm family, Spirit and Larry.

These beautiful animals are ex-racers who were given to us by a local trainer who wanted to find a good home for them. Both are settling in nicely and are receiving lots of love from our house staff.

Their favourite treats are carrots, chocolate coated muesli bars and the occasional iced vo-vo biscuit from our curator Scott Hill’s secret stash! Rouse Hill House and Farm is open this weekend so please come out and say hi to Spirit and Larry!

For more information and visiting times visit the Rouse Hill House and Farm page today.
