Washing machine riding high
16 October 2013
A prestigious Norfolk stud farm is relying on a Miele Professional washing machine to clean its horse blankets, week after week.
Snarehill Stud was developed as a rehabilitation centre for Sheikh Hamdan’s string of racehorses in England. The team were having issues with their laundry – there was too much to get through every week and it was incredibly dirty, with horse hairs and dirt deeply ingrained into the fabric fibres. The team also struggled with waterproof items which needed re-proofing. They approached local dealer GW Commercial to help.
Stud farm manager Andrea Pykerman said: "We wanted a large capacity washer to clean horse rugs, turnout blankets and saddle cloths. We also wanted the ability to reproof the turnout blankets. The recommendation was a Miele Professional 32kg washer and a Brightwell auto dosing unit – the installation was completed in a day and the team programmed the washer to our requirements.”
