Snapdragon is a pasture boarding facility. We do so with the idea that
horses, being a long ranging herd animal by nature, are healthier
and happier in this environment.
Pasture Board– $275/month
Pasture boarded horses are kept in small herds no larger than 7 horses. They receive slow fed hay (in nets), free choice salt with minerals, water and shelter. When conditions permit these herds are turned out to pasture for half days. Grain is not included with board.
Dry Lot Board, no pasture– $300/month
If you have an “Easy Keeper” or laminitis prone horse, this is the proper herd for you. Dry lot horses are kept in a small herd of no more than 6 horses, in a grass free paddock. They receive 24/7 slow fed hay (in nets), free choice salt with minerals, water and shelter. Grain is not included with board.
*available for geldings only, at this time*
Semi-Private Board– $325/month
Our semi-private paddocks hold 2 horses at a time. They have a shelter, slow fed hay (in nets), free choice salt with minerals and water. These horses are grained once daily, if desired. Grain is provided by the owner. Additionally, they have access to pasture turn out, if desired.
Private Board– $345/month
Each private paddock has a shelter, slow fed hay (in nets), free choice salt with minerals and water. These horses are grained once daily, if desired. Grain is provided by the owner. Additionally, they have access to pasture turn out, if desired.
Self Care Board– $215/month
Self Care boarders are charged a reduced monthly fee for doing their own feeding and paddock clean up. This option is ideal for someone who lives close by and stops out almost every day. The self care herd receives slow fed hay (in nets and provided by Snapdragon), free choice salt with minerals, water and shelter. Priority is given to these boarders for next available openings in Full Care herds.
Farrier and Vet
Included with board are the scheduling and holding services for routine farrier trims and twice yearly vaccinations. The cost of the services provided are billed directly to the owner from the farrier and veterinarian.
*This service is not included for Self Care boarders*
Snapdragon uses the Strategic Deworming method for maintaining herd health. A fecal sample for each horse is collected twice a year and tested. Our herds are only dewormed according to those that need it.
Vet Handling- $15/each unscheduled visit: We will hold your horse for the vet and field questions. You will receive the summary of the visit later that evening.
Medication or Treatments- $5/application: If your horse is injured and needs basic ointments applied or bandages redone daily, we can help. Treatments will be tracked and added to your monthly bill.
Draft Horse/Draft-type- $50/month in addition to regular board rate. The decision on this is based on the body habitus of the horse, not the breed alone.
