Horsey friends and clients! Please be extra careful in this wicked cold weather! Tips to keep your horses happy and healthy: Adequate shelter from wind and snow, even a run in makes a big difference. Even the hardiest hairiest horses may need a blanket too for the next couple of days. Free choice WARM water is so important. Heated buckets make this so much easier but if you dont have one at least top off buckets with warm water several times a day. Free choice mature hay (if appropriate) will fuel their internal combustion engine. Watch them closely to make sure they are eating, drinking, and passing enough manure and urine, especially horses living in a herd and our older horses. Brr! Stay warm!
We provide all levels of care for the performance horse, family horse, and reproductive work.
