A DAY IN THE LIFE.... A typical day means your horse will be hanging out with their best friends. We believe older horses do best in small numbers and every effort is made to ensure a compatible mix of personalities. The last thing any horse needs is to be chased around by the pasture bully. Full time access to roughage via pasture or hay is ideal for keeping them happy. Contentment reduces anxiety and digestive disorders. Picture your horse standing head to tail napping under the many shade trees each pasture has to offer. Loafing sheds provide shelter when weather dictates. Feed times for supplements or meds are designed to meet the needs of each individual horse. Other aspects of your horses day can be detailed to meet the desires of each horse's owner. Individual box stalls, extra grooming, or even hand walking on the trails in the woods, can be arranged. Horse treats, carrots and apples are a part of every retiree's life here on the farm.
Our "FEATURED FARM FAMILY" Member
“El Gazarr” is a 30 year old Arabian gelding retired from Massachusetts. He was originally foaled in California and was at one time quite a show horse. He was even the Canadian Reserve Champion in English Equitation years ago. He had a beautiful extended trot which warranted him the nickname "trotter" by his new owner, Liz, who purchased him when he was 15 in Washington State. He was a beauty to her! His previous family never sold their horses, so Liz was blessed and sort of lucky to get him. Liz turned him into a trail horse and that was quite a job! They then moved to Massachusetts in 2006. By then he was in his 20's and experiencing more lameness. Liz tried to find a barn near her more suited to Zarr’s needs. With the lameness and a recent colic, Liz decided in the spring of 2011 it was time to retire him. Zarr joined Weber’s “farm family” in June of that year. Zarr has been a joy to care for. He had some special needs to address when he arrived and needed to gain some weight. He showed improvement the very first month he was in Kentucky. His best friend is Mikey, who probably outweighs him by four hundred pounds. Zarr might be little in size, but he thinks he is the biggest in the barn! He is the boss! He is the smallest, but always first at the gate to come in. He loves attention, particularly having his face rubbed. He captures the hearts of many visitors to the farm. Zarr is in good health, Weber’s hope to care for him for some time to come.
Zarr- FIRST at the gate!
