2019 BOARDING & FOAL RAISING PROGRAM

We offer an inclusive program to raise your riding horse from weaning until riding age. The program includes all care, housing, feeding, general medical care, and basic handling training. We  request that each horse be covered under a major medical, surgical, and mortality insurance plan (We recommend Jarvis or Markel).

Pasture boarding with dedicated 12x12 stall

  • Stalled for meals twice daily in an open, European-style stall with dutch door to paddock
  • Stalled for inclement weather
  • Pastures and dry lot are fenced with 3 board wood fencing
  • Pastured with a closed herd (other than new foals born each year)
  • Pastures are rotated regularly and manure picked three times a week to minimize parasite load
  • Stalls and paddock cleaned twice daily

Free Choice hay 24/7 and Purina Feed Grains, Uckele supplements

  • Most hay is grown from our own fields and analyzed annually
  • 25% alfalfa, 75% mixed grasses
  • Numerous slow feed NibbleNets® and trough-style slow feeders are topped off twice daily so they always have hay to graze on, even in summer months.
  • Purina feeds to maintain weight as needed (we prefer Ultium Growth for foals, but happy to feed your choice)
  • Electrolytes fed as needed
  • Uckele multivitamin added year round, and Vitamin E in winter months
  • We aim for a BCS of 4-5 with growing horses

Handling training three times a week

  • Basic tying, grooming, leading. Often a walk on and off the trailer or bathing/clipping

 Farrier trims and basic healthcare (included in base cost)

  • Trim every 6 weeks by our farrier
  • Vaccines twice a year by farm (inquire for vax schedule in our area)
  • De-worming as needed. We do fecal testing, but always treat for tapes twice a year regardless
