We came to the realization in 2011 that boarding a horse is difficult, and most people had the same feelings. We boarded horses at numerous barns over the past 20 plus years. So with this experience, we had a vision of how we wanted our horses to be cared for and wanted to open our farm to a small group of boarders. We started looking for a farm in the fall 2011 and finally found the farm in August 2012 and LegacyHillsFarm LLC in Kewaskum was started.
We have been horse boarding in West Bend, Kewaskum area for over 5 years now.
People love their horses and they are entrusting the care to someone else. Too many times this trust breaks down for many reasons, mainly due to the care, or an owner feels they do not have any say in how their horse is cared for. When someone is paying for board for their horse, they are a customer; therefore, they should feel comfortable in discussing the care of their horse with the barn owner.
We understand that horses have different nutritional needs; based on age, work load, special health needs, and metabolism. The mentality of “one size fits all” no longer works. We will consult with owners and will feed the grain or pelleted feed that you prefer. We also feed a high quality hay that has been tested. Hay rations are not based on the size of the horse. A horse may have nervous energy and will start chewing the walls; if they are receiving only 2 flakes of hay in their stall at night. Which leads me to my next set of beliefs.
Too many times horses are out in the winter months in a small paddock with nothing to do after they eat their morning ration of hay. These horses become bored, stressed, and cold; they need forage to keep their system running smoothly. We have multiple hay feeders (slow feeders) in each track, along with automatic waterers, and salt blocks for the horses.
Unfortunately we have some extreme weather to deal with in Wisconsin. The large stalls have slow hay feeder, automatic waterer, and a view. This translates into a calmer horse that does not feel closed in and the slow feeder full of hay keeps them occupied.
We are an advocate for the horse being out if at all possible; if only for a few hours on the bad days. Horses need room to roam. We have a track system for everyday turnout where the horses can move and explore .
We want to share our farm with people who love their horses. The farm should be a place where you can get away from the world, relax, and enjoy your horse.
Legacy Hills Farm LLC in Kewaskum is a small private boarding farm that offers a personal touch when caring for horses. So if your looking for horse boarding in Kewaskum give us a call.
