High quality feed products put a healthy glow on every horse, in conjunction with the highest quality worming and vaccination program. All horses also utilize the Smartpak supplement system for their specific needs. SmartPak guarantees accurate dosing every time. We feed 4 times a day which facilitates the horses's digestive process, and our ability to know early if a horse is not eating normally. Our hay is straight Timothy, from Washington State, that is fed 4 times a day, the bulk hay feedings are in the mornings and evenings.
There are accomplished blacksmiths that serve the West Coast Morgans horses, Sean Norris, and equine podiatry veterniary specialist, Dr. Brent Barrett. Depending upon your horse's needs, you may utilize one of them. We are proud to offer veterinary services from Dr .Ross Russell, Russsell Equine Sports Medicine. We follow the medical guidelines from the State of Florida Agriculture Department. Worming and vaccinating our horses at the appropriate level has proven to diminish illness at the facility, given that we have so many horses coming and going during throughout the year to and from facilities throughout the country. As we learn more about the cutting edge of veterinary medicine and farm management, we adapt our practices to provide a combination of tried-and-true systems as well as new and more efficient systems for better health and handling.
We encourage questions and input from our clients to continue growing and making improvements to our facility. With a team approach and shared communication, we all work to maintain our high quality care.
