ANY DAMAGE THAT A HORSE DOES TO THE BARN BEYOND NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR IS THE HORSE
OWNER'S RESPONSIBILITY TO REPAIR.  NO SMOKING IN OR ON THE FARM.

SUPPLEMENTS:  IF THE BOARDER’S HORSE IS ON MORE THAN ONE SUPPLEMENT, I DO ASK THAT THE
HORSE’S OWNER SUPPLY ME WITH AT LEAST A WEEKS SUPPLY OF THEIR HORSES SUPPLEMENTS IN LITTLE
ZIPLOC BAGS WITH A DAILY/PER FEED DOSE INSIDE PLACED IN ONE CONTAINER OR A  LARGE ZIPLOC BAG.

BLANKETING:  BO DOES NOT BLANKET ANY BOARDERS HORSE.   DO NOT FLY SPRAY, FLY MASK OR PUT
BOOTS ON BOARDER’S HORSE.

RING LIGHTS PLEASE SHUT THEM OFF AS SOON AS YOUR DONE.

PASTURE:   I DO REQUIRE THE HORSE’S OWNER TO WEAN THEIR HORSE ONTO GRASS IN THE LATE SPRING,
WHEN THE BARN OWNER DECIDES THE FIELDS ARE DRY ENOUGH.  THIS MEANS THE HORSE’S OWNER MUST
COME AND HAND GRAZE THEIR HORSE UNTIL THEY REACH 1 HR+ OF GRAZING.  HORSE OWNER WILL THEN
BE ALLOWED TO TURNOUT AND BRING IN THEIR HORSE IN THE PASTURE.  BO WILL HELP WHEN AVAILABLE.
PLEASE CONSULT THE BARN OWNER AS TO WHEN THIS WILL START AND WHERE TO GRAZE YOUR HORSE.  
OFF SEASON (OCT./NOV. TO THE END OF MAY) PLEASE DON’T HAND GRAZE, WALK YOUR HORSE ON THE
GRASS FIELDS.  PLEASE DON’T RIDE ON THE FIELDS AT ANYTIME OF YEAR.   IT CAUSES DAMAGE TO THE
FIELDS.   THE FIELDS ARE FOR HORSES TO GRAZE ON ONLY.

TARPS:  THERE ARE TARPS ON EACH HORSE’S STALL DOOR THAT ARE USED DURING THE SUMMER TO
KEEP THE BARN COOLER AND HELP KEEP THE BUGS OUT.  THE HORSE’S OWNER NEEDS TO WORK WITH
THEIR HORSE TO GET THEM USE TO WALKING THRU THE TARP.  IF THE BOARDER'S HORSE DESTROYS THE
TARP.  BOARDER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR REPLACING IT OR PAYING THE BO.

FANS ARE ALSO INSTALLED IN EACH STALL AND TURNED ON AT THE BARN OWNER’S DISCRETION ONLY.

FARRIER &VET:  YOU ARE WELCOME TO USE ANY FARRIER OR VET OF YOUR CHOICE.  
MY HUSBAND IS A FARRIER AND MOST FIND IT CONVENIENT TO USE HIM.   THE HORSE’S OWNER MUST BE AT
ALL VET APPOINTMENTS, EXCEPT SPRING SHOTS.  I WILL TRY AND HELP YOU OUT IF ITS NOT POSSIBLE.  I
DO REQUIRE BOARDER’S HORSES TO REMAIN CURRENT ON ALL VACCINES REQUIRED IN OUR AREA AND
WORMING.  I REQUIRE A CURRENT COGGINS AND PROOF OF VACCCINATIONS TO COME TO THE BARN.   I
DO NOT TREAT BOARDER’S HORSES WOUNDS OR APPLY MEDICATION, UNLESS IT’S A MEDICATION THAT IS
PLACED IN THEIR GRAIN.  THE BARN OWNER WILL TREAT THE BOARDER’S HORSES WOUNDS OR WRAP IF
INJURED FOR A FEE.

HELMETS:  ALL BOARDERS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR AN ASTM RATED HELMET AT ALL TIMES WHILE RIDING
AND SUITABLE FOOT WEAR THAT HAS A HEEL FOR THE RIDER’S SAFETY.  

DOGS:  I DO ASK THAT BOARDER’S LEAVE THEIR DOGS AT HOME.  I OWN 6 DOGS AND IT CAN GET QUITE
CRAZY WITH BOARDER’S AND NEIGHBORS DOGS TOO ON THE FARM.  IT’S A SAFETY ISSUE.   IF YOU MUST
BRING YOUR DOG(S).  YOU ARE WELCOME TO KEEP THEM IN YOUR CAR.  I DO HAVE AN AREA THAT IS
SHADY DURING THE SUMMER TO PARK.  IF YOU FEEL YOU NEED TO BRING YOUR DOG FEEL FREE TO WALK
THEM IN “WILD CAT”.   THE TOWN OWNED LAND BEHIND OUR FARM.  IT’S 300 ACRES OF TRAILS, WHICH IS
WHERE WE TRAIL RIDE ON TOO.   IT’S A GREAT PLACE TO WALK.

IF YOUR INTERESTED IN BOARDING HERE.  I DO REQUIRE AT LEAST 2-3 REFERENCES FROM A PREVIOUS
BARN OWNER/MANAGERS OR BOARDERS AND ANYONE ELSE THAT WOULD BE SUITABLE.  I’M MORE THAN
HAPPY TO SUPPLY REFERENCES OF MY SELF TOO.
