Horses are herding animals that need social contacts. Our horses are pretty even-tempered because their stall attached privat turn outs allow them to decide wether to stay in or go out and they give them more social contact than the common standard stalls. On top of that we make sure our horses get their turn out times as often as possible.
Finding the perfect stall neighbor and a good pasture buddy is sometimes tricky, but we are trying our best.
A horse’s stomach is compared to his body pretty small and designed to take in small amounts of feed over a long period of time. In nature horses eat up to 18 hours a day. Their natural eating position is with the head on the ground which ensures the feed is salivated. This is important to keep the stomach acid under control and prevent ulcers.
Everybody likes a nice round butt on his horse, but we need to keep in mind, that grain is colic reason number one in horses. This is why we feed grain three times a day to keep the rations small, prevent boredom and misbehavior. We make sure our horses get their hay first. Feeding the forage first is important for the sensitive digestion system of horses. Our automatic waterers are not next to the feed bin to keep the horses from swallowing the grain with water instead of chewing properly.
Every horse gets his personal feed ration depending on his weight, his breed and the amount of work. We offer soaked alfalfa pellets and beet pulp and we promise your horse gets all his supplements and medicine as vet prescribed.
We tried other feeds, but came to the conclusion that Seminole is currently the best feed availabe on the market and nothing else is good enough for our horses. Basic feed is Seminole Profecta, but a lot of our horses enjoy the Seminole Wellness feeds like Dyna Sport, Calm and Cool, Senior and Perform Safe.
