HORSE BOARDING

The F-Bar-J Stable includes a run in shelter and large paddock area for each horse and includes a complete nutrition ration of brome hay from the valley and grain (optional) fed in two feedings daily. If your horse requires additional hay or supplements, it falls on the responsibility of the owner. There is additional storage available to accommodate your feed if required.

In addition, there are two large arenas plus two round pens, several turnout areas and a small grazing meadow area available to those who stable their horses here. The horses seem to like the meadow area a lot, but then again, so do some of the owners.

WORKING TOGETHER AS A SUSTAINABLE BARN

Our barn provides all the necessities for our boarders from the food the horses eat, where they live, where they exercise and where to ride them. 


Each horse parent who boards with us is responsible in keeping their horse's stall and paddock area clear and manure free – daily. We believe this is essential as it provides opportunities for daily interaction and strengthens the bond between horse and horse parent. The barn provides empty carts for waste and used bedding. 

What happens to the waste and manure?


The barn crew will haul the manure to a designated waste holding area where it is composted. We keep it as high and dry as possible until after winter. 


When spring arrives, we then mound it up and turn it over every few days and it eventually heats up due to bacterial action and becomes compost. Once it is finished it is screened and mixed with topsoil to make a very fertile soil. Nothing is wasted. All that fertile soil allows our garden to grow some of the best, freshest veggies on the planet!

 

OWNER RESPONSIBILITIES

It is the responsibility of each horse parent who boards with us to keep your stall and paddock area clear and  manure free – daily. The barn provides empty carts for waste and used bedding.


If you are unable to clean your paddock and stall daily, the responsibility falls on you to find someone to fill in for you. You must let the barn manager know when you are going to be away, and if someone else will be caring for your horse in your absence. The barn crew will haul the manure to a designated waste holding area where it is composted. We then keep it as high and dry as possible until after winter. 


Winter: When the snow falls, the barn provides large hand plows for you to push clean snow out of your paddock. Pushing snow is optional, but encouraged to cut down on ice build up. The clean snow is piled in the alley in front of your paddock and our equipment scoops it up and holds it until the spring melts.
