Our horses are vital to the success of our organization. We have 23 horses spread throughout our beautiful 40 acre farm. It is through these amazing animals that we are able to offer life changing programs. Therefore, we ensure that our horses are provided with the best possible care.
Our volunteers also play an important role in the daily care of our horses. They help to: feed the horses each morning, keep them clean by grooming and washing, and assist with other daily chores.
Our farriers visit the O.A.T.S. horses every 6 weeks in warm weather and every 8 weeks when the weather is colder. The farriers are responsible for the care of our horses hooves. They keep the hooves trimmed and balanced. Farriers also remove horseshoes, shape new shoes and place them on the horses' hooves. Only two of our horses here at The Farm wear shoes. Katy and Bluff wear horseshoes for medical reasons.
The care of our horses' teeth is critical to their well-being. Dr. Turner visits The Farm on a regular basis to float the horses' teeth and maintain their beautiful smiles.
From routine care of our herd to emergency medical procedures, Hadley Hill Equine Clinic provides our horses with quality medical treatment. Doctors Ryker, DeWitt, Shelden, and Oliai always work hard to ensure our herd is in top nothch shape.
Our hard working heros regularly carry precious cargo on their backs. It is only fitting that they receive the best chiropractic care. Blaine Prieur certainly knows his way around horses and keeps our herd feeling good.
