John Bosley Hunting
John Bosley out with the Old Berkshire Hunt

John Bosley was born into a farming family in Oxfordshire where his father, a successful racehorse trainer, became ‘Leading Amateur Jockey’ in the 1950’s. It was during those years that John developed his own deep love of horses and a competitive spirit in the saddle.

At sixteen, John won his first Point-to-Point on a horse called ‘Rustic Work’ at a race-meeting of the Old Berkshire Hunt.

John graduated from the Berkshire College of Agriculture followed by Oxford Brookes University after which he spent 20 years as a college lecturer in equine land management and agriculture.


Thongsleigh Farm

IMGP0500_250hJohn’s haylage business started in 1999. Based at Thongsleigh Farm in Devon it has been expanding ever since.

John aims to provide his customers with a good old-fashioned service using modern technology. He’s proud of his haylage and guarantees every bale he sells.

Why not give John a call on 01884 250389 or email him on ….info@yeomanhaylage.co.uk for advice. He’ll be happy to help.

I have been feeding all my top event horses on John’s haylage. The bales are a user-friendly size particularly when we are packing and staying away at three day events. The horses thrive on it, look great and are performing well. The haylage gives them the right energy and nutrition.
