Unlimited good quality hay, feeding 2x daily with Equistages feed, and inspections daily.

 Here at Five Springs Farm, is a very comfortable atmosphere for your beloved loyal equine companion, that has round the clock experienced care. Perfect for retirees and lay-ups with lots of pasture companions!We understand you're equine companions have worked hard for you all their lives, which is why we strive to provide a quiet retirement home for them.

We will send a picture upon arrival and send updated photos and e-mails at least once a month!
 
Retired Pasture Board: $300.00 per month includes: feeding 2x daily up to 6 lbs. of quality grain, 24/7 quality hay which we have checked for a high protein value. In the event that your horse requires more than the normal amount of grain, special grains or hays, such as beet pulp, alfalfa pellets etc. owner will be responsible for extras.

Our new 36' x 60' barn is now completed and has (5) attached paddocks per 1-2 stalls, with (6) 12x12 roomy stalls, individual ceiling fans per stall for hot summer days, mats, wash and grooming stall and insulated tack/feed room with air condition during hot summer months.

.

We feel these prices reflect the individual care of having a small group of horses verses a larger herd, and we try to provide the very best ammenities including:
         - clean and safe environment
         - well structured barns and fencing
         - healthy green pastures
         - and so much more

* We do of all vet and farrier scheduling. Owner will be responsible for all vet and farrier bills. We suggest that new horses coming in, starting  a 5 day Panacur Pak before arriving.

* We also supply "Fly Predators" to help keep the flies to a minimum! Which by the way, works wonderfully!

* We highly recommend all of our horses use "Smart-Bug" made by Smart-Pak, an all natural ingredient made with garlic, which is a fly control that protect horses from flies, gnats, mosquitoes and ticks! This can be purchased by Dover or Smart-Pak and shipped here. This along with the fly predators, practically eliminates fly sheets and fly sprays!

* Some of our horses are also on Smart-Pak suppliments that are supplied by the owners, and served by us!

* If your horse requires a different type of special feed or hay supplement such as beet pulp, alfalfa cubes or any extra amounts of grain, "other than the normal amount of grain fed which is already included in the board" to help maintain weight for hard-keepers, we would be glad to serve any of these items for a reasonable additional cost.




Most of our horses that have come to live with us have been performance horses and have participated in a variety of disciplines. They have competed through Grand Prix dressage, Grand Prix jumping, "A" circuit hunters, upper level eventing, foxhunting and now are living the life a horse deserves after giving so much of themselves. So, it is the love of their owners that gives back to their faithful companions to allow them to live out their remaining golden years in a way that is simple, without stress and lazy days eating grass under shade trees with friends!
These horses become part of our lives, and are here with us till the end!
In the event when the time has come to say goodbye, we have an area on our farm that holds a special place for our horses to rest.
