Serosun Farms Equestrian Care embraces whole-health programs in keeping our equine friends happy, healthy and sound. Horses are such big, strong animals, but they can be challenging to care for because of their sensitive digestive systems and risk for leg injuries.
At Serosun, we try to look at equine care in a holistic way that is very similar to the comprehensive approach we’ve taken in the creation of our community.
Sometimes the best strategy to improving care is to simplify things to a core foundation of healthy living. Serosun is home to young sport horses just establishing their careers, older experienced jumpers, and some senior citizens in retirement. While there are specific requirements for each of these different age groups, the common threads of care between them are the basics of fresh water, good quality hay and feed, a clean and pest-free environment, and adequate, safe turn out. For the horses in training, good dust-free footing is a must, as is a structured training program appropriate to the level of work expected from the horse.
From a nutritional’ standpoint, Serosun has been growing organic alfalfa grass mix hay for the past eight years. The farmers that produce this hay for Serosun do an outstanding job in making sure hay is baled correctly to be mold and dust free. A low-starch feed created by Kentuck Equine Research is provided, along with whole food products available through Biostar EQ. An individual feed program is created for each horse based on its specific health and nutritional needs.
