Horses are turned out for up to 12 hours per day in small groups of the same sex. We group horses with similar activity levels to provide easy social interaction and limit the anxiety of jockeying for rank in a large, varied herd. Day or night turnout is available. Horses are turned out in all weather, rain or shine, with very few exceptions (ice, sleet, unsafe heat or cold, etc.). It is recommended that each horse have a waterproof turnout blanket during the winter months.
Horses are fed what they need to maintain a body condition score of 6 unless the owner requests something different. There are no charges for additional hay or grain for hard keepers or large horses.
We stock both grass hay and alfalfa/grass hay. When grass in the fields becomes sparse, horses are fed unlimited grass hay outside. Unless they have a weight issue, hay is kept available at all times to all horses while in their stalls as well.
Years of experience caring for a variety of horses has helped the MCE team develop a consistent and successful nutrition and lifestyle regimen that leads to happy, healthy horses. Our philosophies are tried and true and we always put the happiness of the horse first. Every horse is an individual with specific lifestyle and dietary needs, and it is our passion to get to know each horse and establish the best possible care and feeding regimen for them. MCE is a full care facility only, we do not offer partial care.
