Our speciality is long term care of retired senior horses. We find that they thrive in small groups with 24 hour turnout in a good pasture with fresh water and access to shelter. Each day, they receive high quality senior feed. In winter, they receive high quality square-bale hay and we put blankets on as needed. In summer, they get fly masks and spray.
The business owner lives in the loft apartment above the three stall barn. The building was constructed in 2019. Space for long term trailer parking is available upon request.
Each stall (~11'X11') has access to the small paddock through a Dutch door as well as through a sliding door to the barn aisle. Pine shavings are used in the stalls. The barn aisle and stalls have rubber mats. There is a separate equipment/feed/bath room with an entrance just off the barn aisle. It has a utility sink with hot and cold running water; plus, a shower and toilet.
Each shelter is 12' X 48' with a secure 12' X 12' hay storage bay. They face southeast or east, away from prevailing winds. They have standing seam metal roofs and board-and-batten siding. They sit on a gravel base topped with bluestone. The fence is three board oak.
Horses have 24 hour access to grass, water and shelter. For herd management, the pasture can be separated into multiple smaller paddocks; each with water and shelter.
