Worming - We deworm based on AAEP Guidelines.
Fecal testing and worming is included in board cost.
The worming schedule is as follows:
June-Quest combo care
January- Equimax or Zimectrin gold
If horses test positive on EPG fecal test - owners will be billed for additional wormer to treat.
Fecal Testing - Shows eggs per gram
Vaccines - Kern Road will vaccinate spring and fall unless you make other arrangements- these vaccines are required. We will hold horses and bring them in so no need to be present. You may make other arrangements but will be required to vaccinate by these dates and provide proof of vaccination.
March 17th - Tetnus/EEE/WEE/Rabies/West Nile/Strangles/Potomac/
Flu/Rhino - We also do coggins at this time
Sept 1 - Flu/Rhino/Potomac
We currently follow all management practices for reducing intake of sand - feeding hay in stalls rather than run outs, providing hay mangers/feeders for outside hay and do rotational grazing to ensure the grass is not eaten down.
Reminder - board is due the first of the month. There is a $50 late fee if I do not have payment in hand by the 7th of the month. You may pay electronically via the link on your invoice to Inuit or via Paypal (Ruth@stapletonfarm.com) or via check/cash in the box in the barn.
As always if there are any questions or you need something contact Ruth directly.
