Richard Broad – 1 May 2020
Medwin Broad‘s funeral will be on Wednesday 13th at 1.30pm at Weston-super-Mare Crematorium. Obviously due to the Coronavirus situation we can only have immediate family attending. However we will be having the service videoed and will be on a live link. We will upload the order of service and Live Link address as soon as we have it set up. In the future when we all get through the lock down we will have a Thanksgiving Service for Medwin. Thank you all for your support at this difficult time from myself and all the family
Richard Broad – 30 April 2020
RIP my love, my friend, my rock Medwin Broad. We will all miss you so very much, friends and family alike. You have been such an inspiration to everyone you meet. We have lost a wife, a mother, a grandmother and the boss of the family. The horse/pony world has lost someone with so much knowledge, enthusiasm and a willingness to help everyone. You have left a very big vacuum for us to fill, and we know you will be watching over us. We are so very proud of you, and I will love you for ever.❤️❤️
The Welsh Pony and Cob Society announced today that from tomorrow all DNA profiling of Stallions and Mares, and parentage testing when required, will be provided by Weatherbys Scientific.
This follows the threat of closure to the Animal Health Trust’s Laboratory services and their website statement earlier in March
‘that following a period of dire financial constraints, and with the economic implications of the Covid-19 pandemic in the UK the charity was facing imminent closure.The Trustees and Executive Committee are continuing to seek out emergency funding and a final decision regarding the long-term future of the Trust will now be made towards the end of April 2020.Following recent guidance from the UK Government on tackling the Covid-19 pandemic and in order to make use of the thoseGovernment’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, the AHT has closed its offices until further notice.
During this period the WPCS Office have been in constant communication with the AHT and we are assured that any pending profiles and tests which are held up in their system will either be profiled when they re-open, or sent on directly to the WPCS; who will then forward the samples to Weatherbys Scientific. This will avoid any further costs to breeders whose Vets have harvested those DNA samples.
The data stored by the AHT on behalf of the WPCS is the property of the WPCS, and therefore is not at risk. That data is held on AHT’s behalf by Weatherbys Scientific so it will be possible to access past profiles.
The WPCS would like to thank the staff at the AHT for their helpful attitude during such a difficult time for the Trust and its employees.
Weatherbys Scientific are based in County Kildare, Ireland.
