You may wonder at the prices for our services and think how can they do it?We are just offering you the best horse care at the best price by simply keeping things on a small scale,large farms must hire costly labor ,we are the laborers here,we clean the stalls ,feed,wash water buckets,sweep aisleways,cobweb,ect........
We prefer to use locally grown feeds and beddings much more economical and healthier .We also buy our excellent Alfalfa grass mix Hay locally a perk for living in the heartland, as you can see we can pass the savings on to you.
