Cushings, Insulin Resistance, Laminitis, & EPSM Diets
At Orchard Equine Retirement each horse's diet is customized to meet their dietary requirements as determined by consultation with our veterinarian, nutritionists from Blue Seal Feeds, and individual horse's owners who have extensive experience with their horse's personal dietary requirements.
Since we already feed a line of premium extruded feeds designed to address various metabolic and digestive issues often seen in retired horses, there is no need for additional charges above and beyond our Full Care Retirement Board rates.
Pasture turnout times are restricted for horses with dietary restrictions. We have successfully managed horses with a history of laminitis by limiting their pasture time to the time of day with the lowest grass sugar levels thus allowing the horse the pleasure of grazing at the same time significantly reducing their risk of recurrence.
Grazing muzzles are an option if needed.
Reserve Your Horse's Retirement Today
Peace of Mind is Priceless.
At Orchard Equine Retirement we have been providing Full Care Horse Retirement since 1988. We know that retiring horses is so much more than turning a horse out in a pasture.
Much more. We understand and respect the special relationship owners have with their horses. We understand how difficult it is to separate from your partner and friend.
We've been there. Lying awake at night wondering if they are being fed properly. If they are standing out in the weather, or are they comfortable inside their box stall or run in shed with their buddies.
It is that very relationship with a horse named Prince and the failed search for a horse retirement farm where he could safely retire, that inspires us to this day.
We look forward to discussing the retirement you want for your horse. Please include your horse's name in your message!
We offer flat rate and itemized billing. Clients choose which method best suits their horse's needs and their preferences. Call or send a message to reserve your horse's retirement at the farm that continues to set the standard in horse retirement.
