We provide several quality feeds to choose from. Each horses feed program is tailored to each horse’s individual needs. We provide quality Coastal Bermuda as part of standard board. Timothy hay is available at an extra cost. In the winter, hay is provided in pastures. We encourage the owners to help monitor their horses feed requirements because we have found each owner has their preference to their horses’ ideal weight
The farm farriers are Bill Mathis and Casey Sokol. Both are very experienced members of The American Farriers Association and are up to date on various shoeing techniques. If you prefer a different farrier you are welcome to make your own arrangements.
