Priors Farm has the capability to remotely tranquillise (commonly known as darting) animals that can not be caught.

There are rare occasions when a horse may be unable to be caught. Here at Priors Farm we have the ability to remotely tranquillise any animal using a dart-gun.

This rifle allows us to inject an animal with powerful sedative drugs up to a distance of 70 yards. Once injected the animal will normally become recumbent (lie down) within a few minutes allowing its safe capture.

If you have any questions regarding darting please contact one of the directors, Duncan Harrison, who will be happy to assist.
