Worming - We deworm based on AAEP Guidelines.
Barn manager handles fecal testing and worming you will see the cost of wormer on your Jan and August bills.
The required worming schedule is as follows:
Fecal Testing - Shows eggs per gram
This is done in March and Sept. Each horse receives a customized report.
If horses test positive on EPG fecal test - owners will be billed for additional wormer to treat.
Vaccines - Dr Cadena will vaccinate spring and fall- these vaccines are required. We will hold horses and bring them in so no need to be present.
Spring split into 3 days
AAEP Guidlines for Vaccinations:
AAEP guidlines for Parasite Control and Worming :
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.
