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 often happier in this environment.

Pasture Board– $230/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.  Horses on pasture board are grained once daily.  Grain is not included with board.

Dry Lot Board, no pasture– $245/month   *available for geldings only, at this time*
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.  Horses in this full care board option are grained once daily.  Grain is not included with board.

Semi-Private Board–  $280/month
We have 2 semi-private paddocks. Each paddock has a 2 horse shelter, slow fed hay (in nets), free choice salt with minerals and water.  Semi-privately pastured horses are  grained once daily.  Grain is not included with board.  Additionally, they have access to pasture turn out, if desired.

Private Board–  $300/month
Each private paddock has a shelter, slow fed hay (in nets), free choice salt with minerals and water.  Privately pastured horses may be grained once daily.  Grain is not included with board.  Additionally, they have access to pasture turn out, if desired.

Self Care Board– $180/month
Self Care boarders are charged a reduced monthly fee for doing their own feeding and paddock clean up.  If you are a hands-on owner looking for economical board, this may be the right choice for you.  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.  Next available openings in Full Care herds are first offered to Self Care boarders.


 

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.

Deworming
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.
