FEED & DEWORMER
As nature intended it to be, the diet of the horses should consist mainly of forage and we do not feed grains to our horses - from easy keeper to hard keeper and even senior horses - everyone is healthy and performing great with our quality multi-mineral supplement, Coolstance, and Organic alfafa - organic whole grains added if needed, but we haven't had the need to since we opened 7 years ago (!). We also resell Certified Organic Feed from New Country Organics - and deliver them locally!
Twice a year, we require fecal samples to customize the deworming program to each horse needs and to minimize the resistance to chemical dewormer. We deworm twice a year (or more if required). To avoid contamination, we pick up fields every day and feed off the grounds (hay nets are available inside and outside - if the grass is not sufficient).
We try to have our horses out as long as possible (8 hours minimum, weather permitting) - they are free to move around and enjoy the 27 acres of the property. We rotate the fields to make sure they are not overgrazed.
We provide (included in the board) an all-natural fly spray and encourage boarder to also use natural feed through fly repellent system. We also use non-toxic fly prevention traps and control techniques.
OTHER GREEN PRACTICES
We do not use pesticides at all on the farm.
We make our own Horse Hair Conditionner that is 100% natural and free of any harmful chemicals.
We try to cut down on our gas/fuel consumption- we do the stall and pick up the fields with our electric golf cart. We drag the rings with it too!
We have 100% natural GGT Arpolith (lava particles) in our footing to minimize the need for watering.
