Splendor Farm provides:
Excellent Care: I take care of every horse/pony as if it were mine own. All horses needs change month to month, year to year and
season to season but in older horses/ponies their needs can change even faster and as such need to be managed on a daily basis.
I learn very quickly how much they eat, drink, pee and poop day to day and if anything changes I keep close track to be sure
nothing is wrong. I also have 24/7 Vet coverage if needed. I have had the same Vet for 20 years so there is never any issue
getting an appointment or getting her here in an emergency. I am also less than 1.5 hours from Conrnell Vet Hospital if needed
and I have 2 horse trailers so if I need to haul a horse I can always do it.
All the stalls have Pro Mat Stable Comfort Mattresses!! These are the best MATTRESSES your horse can
stand on! All the horses/ponies LOVE them. These Mattresses are about 3 inches thick, filled with ground up rubber tires and
a cover over the top, see pictures. These mattresses are so healthy for your horses legs and feet. I can not say enough
good about these Mattresses. Every stall has a window too! All the stall doors are half doors so each horse can put his/her
head out too, the horses love it. Stalls are 10'x12' but feel bigger because they can have their heads out. Stalls are cleaned
Pastures : Large Green Pastures for turnout! We offer both group and private turnout.
Horses are out during the day in winter in at night. They are out at night and in during the day in the hot summer months.
The horses always let me know when to flip the turnout from day to night and back again. I turnout as much as possible and
have them inside when the weather is bad.
Hay: We have 70 acres of grass hay fields here on the farm and bale all of our own hay, both 1st and 2nd cutting! This
is so important because you never have to worry about the farm running out of hay or about the quality of the hay your horse
is eating. I do not bale hay until the weather is perfect. Your horse will eat as much hay as they need here, both 1st and
2nd cutting. With all the hay and grass pastures we have your horse will be well fed. We feed grain when needed.
Services: I take care everything for you. I make all your horses's vet and
farrier appointments and hold your horse for each appointment. I will give your horse any medications that you provide. Horses
are groomed. I do a body check daily and tend to any wounds I find, they are horses and things happen. It is hard to list
everything I do because I simply take care of the horses everyday whatever they need.
