  Frequently Asked Questions

 Do you offer private turn-out? Not as a routine option at this time. We offer boarders        individual turn-out in the event it is veterinary recommended for a  short-term medical need.

 Do you allow stallions? No.

 Can I use my own feed? Sure, but we do not apply a discount as feed  and  hay are  calculated on an average across all horses who eat variable  amounts. 

 My horse has several supplements, is that OK? Absolutely. We just ask you to  have them  combined in a baggie if multiple supplements.

 Multiple containers, extra feedings, syrups, medications, etc. will be charged an additional     fee.

 Can I use my own vet or farrier? Sure. You have the freedom to choose whomever you   like,  or you can coordinate with our farm schedule. Our primary vets are Drs. Ken and   Susan Kimmick /Farmstead Veterinary Clinic. The clinic is 12 minutes from our facility.
