Aurora Farms is a small retirement, rehabilitation, and specialty breeding facility. We take pride in providing quality over quantity, with low numbers for individualized attention. We consult with veterinarians, farrier, and a nutritionist for each horse to make sure we provide for all of their needs. There is no nickel and diming, retirement board includes feed, non-prescription supplements, yearly vaccines, rotational worming, fly treatments, blanketing, minor wound care, etc. We have automatic waterers in the pastures and stalls, fans in the run in sheds so horses can get a break from the heat in the summer without having to be locked in a barn.
Each horse gets what they need here. We have capacity for 15 retirees.
We are in the process of building a new rehabilitation barn, grand opening October 2011. This barn will have 5 stalls with connecting pastures, and 2 climate controlled stalls, one fully padded with a lift system for neurologic cases. We also have a complete lab and run our own CBCs and Chemistries. We follow veterinary instructions to the letter, leading to great success with our rehabilitation cases.
We take up to 2 rehabilitation cases at a time.
Breeding services include artificial insemination, cultures, cytologies, and sensitivities run on site, uterine lavage and treatments on site, short cycling, as well as semen evaluation and stallion collecting.
We foal 10-15 mares per year, foaling stalls are a minimum of 12x 24 with video cameras in each, and we use the foal alert system.
We can keep 5 permanent broodmares on site, others come in to foal and/or be bred.
