We are a very private family barn that on occasion will accept 1 to 4 horses for board, including stallions and BLM mustangs. Because this is still our home, we are very particular as to who we allow to board with us. We want to maintain the family home atmosphere, so any boarder will be treated like family and we expect the same courtesy in return. Drama, theft, lying, rudeness, etc. will NOT be tolerated, and violators will be asked to leave immediately and are to have their horse and tack removed from the property within 48 hours. Exceptions will not be made.
We offer three (3) types of board; rough, outdoor, and stall board. The definition of three are as followed.
Rough Board: pasture turnout during summer months and fed hay twice a day year-round. NO grain or supplements are fed. Fly mask and blanket put on and/or removed as needed. $250
Outdoor Board: pasture turnout during summer months and fed hay, grain, and supplements twice a day year-round. Fly mask and blanket put on and/or removed as needed. $550
Stall Board: stalled at night and in bad weather, turned out daily, pasture turnout during summer months, hay, grain, and supplements fed twice a day year-round. Fly mask and blanket put on and/or removed as needed. $740
We feed a high protein grass & alfalfa mixed hay. We proudly feed Progressive Nutrition® feeds, supplements, and diet balancers. Boarders must provide their own feed, supplements, and/or diet balancer IF they want their horses fed something other than Progressive Nutrition®. Our pastures are seeded with Pasture Perfect® Show Horse Mix and are fertilized every fall. Pasture weeds are kept down by our goats. Horses are put out on pasture in May and the pastures are closed for the year in September. The rest of the year the are turned out in the dry lot.
All horses are weighed monthly and their hay amounts are adjusted accordingly. All horses are feed 1.75% - 2% of their body weight in forage daily for maintenance. Breeding stallions and horses with a light workload (1 – 3 hours / week i.e. training, recreational riding, light showing) are feed maintenance x 1.2 of forage daily. Horses with a medium workload (3 – 5 hours / week i.e. ranching, polo, school horses, frequent showing) will be feed maintenance x 1.4 of forage daily. Late lactating mares and horses with a heavy workload (4 – 5 hours / week i.e. ranching, polo, low-level eventing, limited-distance endurance, racing) will be fed maintenance x 1.6 of forage daily. Early lactating mares and horses with a very heavy workload (6 – 12 hours / week i.e. elite level racing, endurance, three-day eventing) will be fed maintenance x 1.9 of forage daily.
Our barn offers a 60-foot round pen, a 73 ft x 135 ft outdoor arena, indoor wash stall, locked feed room, locked tack room, and 8 European style 10x12 stalls. The center wall can be removed from some of the stalls creating 10 ft x 24 ft foaling stalls. We plan to add hot water in the shower stall and heat in the barn soon.
