NOTICE: Barr W Stables utilizes rotational deworming using Equimax, Anthelcide EQ, and Strongid (or their equivalent).  It is extremely important that every horse be timely dewormed according to the rotation.  Owners are required to purchase their own dewormer paste (according to the rotation schedule) and administer the dose to their horse(s) by no later than the end of the month in which rotation is scheduled.  We can provide deworming of your horse using your dewormer for $10.00 per rotation if your horse is calm and fairly cooperative.  However, if your horse has issues with being restrained while wormer is given, you will either have to administer yourself or have your vet administer the required dose.

All horses MUST be kept current on vaccinations/boosters to ensure the health of the herd.  Vet visits are scheduled in the spring and fall - farm call is split between horses.  If owner misses the group visits, it will be their responsibility to have their vet out to do the required vaccinations/boosters, and the owner will be responsibile for the full cost of the farm call charge.  Please note that vets do not bill for services rendered and that owner must be present to pay, or leave payment for services rendered at that time.

Barr W Stables relies on Dr. Amy Jordan of Bear Creek Mobile Veterinary Service, Dr. Robin Smith of Yellowhorse Mobile Veterinary Service, and Drs. Jonathan Featherstone, Bert Parker and Kristi Pierce-Shupe of Rocky River Large Animal Veterinary Clinic at Southridge Veterinary Hospital to keep the horses protected from disease and to provide quick emergency assistance when necessary.

Farrier visits are scheduled every six weeks exclusively through Equine Performance Hoof Care Farrier Tim Worden.  Please note that Tim does not bill for services rendered and that owner must be present or leave payment for services to be rendered, including any charge for retrieving/holding the horse
Barr W Stables suggests that horses receive attention to their feet on the six week visit schedule.
