They specialize in OTTBs but also offer layup board and stand a stallion, so they’ve at least got stallion experience.
Also try Moser Woods. Sport horse breeders, trainers, boarding, etc.
In regards to the other off-topic thing, this is why most boarding stables do not board stallions. Sorry, but I believe the responsibility of the stallion falls to the person handling the stallion. Assuming that everyone else in the barn should know to take extra care around him is asking for trouble. I would certainly resent not being able to walk by the grooming bays because it might set off some unattended stallion. I’ve worked in a mixed situation (lots of stallions, lots of mares and geldings too) and it was the stallions who were handled differently. We didn’t expect everyone to have to check to make sure a stallion wasn’t out before they proceeded by with their mares/geldings.[/QUOTE]
I wholeheartedy agree with you. If a stallion is being boarded at regular boarding facility, the handler is responsible for the stallion at all times. The whole place should not have to “stop and check”.
That said, I did a bit of boarding years ago, and was standing 3 stallions. There were times that I had to give them priority when it was a collection day in getting them down the aisle without another horse standing in crossties.
My boarders were stellar about that. They knew I was a breeding facility first when they pursued me to board their horses here (I didn’t NOT put my shingle out…I was just asked if I could do boarding). I made it clear if they wanted to board, there might be times they may find themselves inconvenienced for a moment or two.
It was never a problem because that communication was clear and we were all on the same page.
That said, if I boarded as stallion at a non-breeding boarding facility…I would not expect anyone to make concessions, unless specifically asked a time or two in a special situation.
Agree. Get your stallion to a breeding facility. I would not want any of my stallions, no matter how much of a “gentleman” they may be boarded at a place that has no experience whatsoever. You’d regret that, I can almost guarantee it.
