Fresh Water On Demand 24/7/365 in Stainless Steel, Not Plastic
Nelson Auto Waterers
Each pasture and/or paddock has an all Stainless Steel Heated Automatic Nelson Mfg 700 Series Waterer that provides fresh well water on demand for your retired horse.
Nelson Waterers have a patented balance beam actuated float that maintains the drinking water in the stainless steel bowl as the horse drinks. Your horse only has to drink for the bowl to fill. There is no paddles to push or troublesome floats.
Stainless Steel versus Plastic - Fifty years of experience has shown me time and again horses who refuse to drink from plastic buckets. These horses will leave their water untouched, however when given access to steel will immediately drink. As managers the last thing we want to see is a horse restricting their water intake.
Orchard Equine Retirement has backup generators that powers our well pump and all of our heating elements for automatic waterers, buckets, and of course the Duck Pond!
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.
