Online forums are a-buzz with the news that Colchester-based online retailer Mile End Supplies has gone into liquidation.

The popular Mile End Supplies website has been replaced by a holding page that says the site is down for maintenance and those living close enough to their Colchester shop say that it is also closed.

It’s so sad to hear of the closure of a company that has supplied horse owners well over the years – and users of the Horse and Hound forums were quick to share their disappointment.

It was nice to see that Pegasus Health was mentioned on some forums as a possible alternative supplier. We don’t currently supply regular wormers – which was one of Mile End Supplies specialities – although we can offer the Verm-X range of herbal wormers.

We also supply garlic granules for horses – a good natural supplement to deter parasites ALONGSIDE (but not instead of) a traditional wormer.

Pegasus Health does offer a growing range of horse supplements and horse care products from top UK and international manufacturers as well as its competitively-priced own-brand everyday essentials and would hope we could help some former Mile End Supplies customers looking for a new supplier.
