Barn of the Month – October Farm

BOTM-October-Farm-thumb

Having all of our horses on SmartPaks made the move just a little easier as we all knew at least this – one of the most important things, our horses health – wouldn’t have to be worried about! We let SmartPak know when and where we would be moving and it was as simple as that. Our horses all settled in nicely and their dinner was ready for them, as well as a package at the door – our SmartPaks!

“My family has owned, operated and lived at Valinor Farm since 1982.

Barn of the Month – Arrowhead Farms

BOTM-Arrowhead-Farms-Thumb

“I have owned and operated Arrowhead Farms, a hunter/jumper boarding facility in Concord, MA for the past 13 years. After first opening my facility in 1999, I soon realized it was becoming a full time job to manage the various supplements for multiple horses. Many owners had horses arriving on supplements that were no longer appropriate for their horse, not to mention my feed room was quickly running out of space…”

Barn of the Month – Evergreen Farms

BOTM-Evergreen-Farm-thumb

My parents built a boarding facility in 1999, Evergreen Farms. We like to think of it as a little piece of heaven. My dad drew up the idea on the back of a placemat at a restaurant. They hired a builder who ended up falling through on the work. My dad and some of the employees of his excavating company ended up finishing the barn and adding the best touches. The small ideas and finishing touches mean more knowing that your dad and brothers had that idea and used their hard working hands to build this little piece of heaven!!

Barn of the Month – Four Winds Farm

FWF2-thumb

“What can you say about a barn that is more like a home to boarders than just a place to shelter a horse? If you were to pose such a question to me, I would happily tell you all about a wonderful Hunter/Jumper barn, Four Winds Farm, in North Oxford, MA. When I arrived for a tour of Four Winds, it was evident that this was a top-notch facility, the horses were fit and happy, the barn and stalls were clean, the people were friendly to me and with one another and the amenities were plentiful!”
