Idyllic Retirement Home with Plenty of Pampering

Detailed Description

We are a 16 acre farm catering to every need of the retired horse. We provide a relaxing yet pampered environment for just a few horses to keep it low key and to ensure horses get along together well. Our customized care extends to the following: » Each horse has its own stall but they are allowed to come and go from the barn to the fields as they please. That being said, whenever there is inclement weather or an injury, the horses will be stabled in individual stalls as needed. » We have one large field, as well as 4 large separate paddocks. If all the gates are open, the horses have full rein of all the turnout spaces and access to the barn, but should one paddock be muddy or need rest, they can be closed off. » The barnyard right outside the barn entrance is a small, flat paddock covered with crushed stone. It can be closed off in bad footing / inclement weather so the horses have some access to being outside if otherwise it’s unsafe in the rest of the paddocks. Since their hay is provided in the barnyard, we also pick it twice per day. » The stalls are also cleaned twice per day. Manure is removed from the paddocks and field about every other week. Areas that tend to get more traffic and therefore become more muddy are covered with oak woodchips for better footing. » We feed only chopped hay (Triple Crown Grass Forage and some Lucerne Farms Premium Hay) due to dentation issues of older horses. Horses have unlimited access to hay throughout the day and night. In addition, we feed soaked Timothy hay pellets twice per day as a supplemental snack. » We feed grain (owner’s preference as to brand, quantity) twice per day, either pre-soaked or dry. We will also feed supplements and medication based on the owner’s request. And treats twice a day too! » We do blanket changes twice per day based on weather conditions. During the summer, the horses are out with fly gear and spray– either day and night or just during the day depending on the owner’s preference. We also use Spalding Labs fly predators all season long to try to mitigate the fly population. » We have fans running in the barn during the summer and have heated water buckets in the winter. » We live on-property and we have WiFi cameras in several locations in / on the barn in order to check in on them . The horse’s owners are welcome to come visit their horse when they’d like, but if they aren’t able to visit, we typically groom the horses once per week (and hoof pick every day).
