Turnout And Lay-Up
As a service to clients, we provide care for horses needing a rest from the racetrack or other performance events. This could range from only a few days to a few months. The same quality care is provided for temporary horses as for our own horses.
With our many years in the horse business, and level of success that we have been fortunate enough to attain, we feel that we are qualified to assist our clients with decisions concerning stallion selection, broodmare purchases and matings, yearling selection, conformation advise, and health maintenance advice. We are eager to answer all questions and concerns about the horse business. If we don't know the answer, we will make every effort to assist you in getting the correct answer. WE WANT YOU TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE HORSE BUSINESS.
