Feedlot/killpen horses typically come off the lots with an assortment of respiratory illness'. From non-contagious shipping fevers to contagious virus & bacterial infections including several strains of strep & even strangles, we see simple allergic reactions from changes in hay to pneumonia. Stress related issues like stomach ulcers seem to be common. Additionally, they also come with various issues with their feet, from simple neglect and lack of trimming to thrush, white-line, and occasionally founder. The hardest part is that these horses have been thru so many changes from the simple expedient of being torn away from their homes, their families and their herds, run thru multiple auctions, passed from hand to hand, only to be turned into small dry lots with large numbers of strange herd mates which changes constantly and creates a daily shift in herd hierarchy. The antipathy of everything that a herd minded & socially domesticated companion animal like the horse stands for. More than once I have found myself paralleling the process to survivors of concentrations camps, that these wonderful animals typically come thru the experience still looking to bond with human partners, craving the gentle touch of a hand, the softly spoken reassurance, and a willingness to partner with us, is a testimony to how forgiving and strong of heart they truly are.
For these reasons, we strongly recommend a minimum of 30 days quarantine. By preference, we believe its in the best interest of recovery if you can qt them at home from day one, building new bonds and allowing them to heal mentally & emotionally, as well as physically. QT protocol is necessary to maintain the biosecurity for the various illness', but its also a time of let down to rebuild the security and trust they so richly deserve.
But we also understand that it isn't always possible for new adopters to provide that at home, so we have lists of people, facilities & business' who can provide these services. We dont endorse any of the service providers listed. We suggest that you call and get several quotes, and make sure to interview the people you chose to hire. There are many options, such as fill rates, clean hauls vs dirty loads, etc. so please check with your provider and make certain of their requirements, also. Choosing those responsible for the care of your new horse can be a difficult process, never hesitate to ask questions, and make certain that you are comfortable with the answers. Stay in touch with your new hauler/QT provider while your horse is in their care. Visiting is not always possible, but its acceptable to ask for updates & even photos. Please forgive the list, its a work in progress, we are attempting to set it up alphabetically and by state/killpen for convenience. Thank you for your patience.
