Wish List Items


Abscess Care Kits
Ugh... Abscesses! Our favorite abscess care products come in a kit: The HOOFix Care kit has helped a number of our horses. More traditional abscess care products are also deeply appreciated (epsom salts, diapers, vetwrap, etc).

Fly Sheets
Sizes 76-84 (Thoroughbreds used to being stabled 23 hours a day often have a hard time adjusting to turnout, especially because of flies! Fly sheets help keep them more comfortable while making that transition)

Our big Fall Fundraising Auction is fast approaching! Books, collectibles, artwork, tack (new and used!), and services (lessons, training, braiding & grooming) are all accepted! Contact us for more details.
