So many of us have one of these among our pets, no more so than with our horses. The older horse who has been a part of someone’s life for 20+ years is a blessing and a treasure. I count myself lucky every time I get to be a part of one of these special […]
There has been a lot of discussion lately on this topic. Most horse owners prefer to have veterinarians vaccinate their horses, but many are comfortable doing it themselves and have done so for years without any complications. This can save some money and can be more convenient for those people who have been trained to […]
On February 16, I went with a team from Building Goodness Foundation to Haiti to build an incentive kay. An incentive kay is a small house that is built for a family as a reward for their efforts to restore Haiti’s habitat. Much of Haiti has suffered massive deforestation so one project trying to fix this […]
It seems like every year, once we get past all the holiday rush, people’s minds turn back to their horses with a sudden intensity. I begin to receive all kinds of questions about breeding mares. The biggest factor for preparing for breeding is recognizing your mare’s cycling patterns. In Virginia many mares will continue to […]
It is important to all who attend shows with their horses that they check in frequently with the show grounds for their requirements. Any show can have increased their requirements above and beyond state requirements. Attached is an example where a particular show is taking extra precautions due to a recent positive testing in Ocala, […]
It is no surprise to anyone, we are sure, that the way we purchase just about everything has changed in the last few years. Veterinary drugs are no different. We know that many of our clients struggle to make sure they are getting the best possible price on the prescriptions they need for their horses. […]
THANKS to all of you who kept me and my horse Joe ( I'm Cotton-Eyed Joe) in your thoughts and prayers after his recent colic. Joe received EXCELLENT care and life-saving surgery from Blue Ridge Equine and Dr. Trostle. I am grateful for the experience of Dr. Trostle, the interns, the great care and frequent communication.
Thank you so much for your excellent care and compassion shown to Zack and me during our visits to the clinic over the past few months. He is such a sensitive guy, and I love him so much – you made a scary and difficult time so much easier to bear. I always know my animals are safe in your hands! I hope you all know how grateful I am.
A heartfelt thank you for the tremendous work your team performed on Sprout and Lulu. The past 2 weeks have been an education for me on the vast medical resources available at BREC. I truly realized the extent and depth of veterinary talents within your organization. I feel totally blessed knowing you are there for me and my equines.
Thank you, Anne, Dr. Hecking, Dr. Moore, and Courtney for being so helpful through this whole journey, and for being respectful and compassionate to the end. I would recommend you all highly to anyone who is in need of a professional and caring veterinary clinic.
Thank you so much, Anne, for your speedy reply and your consideration for giving me a little education in the process. This, along with the wonderful Dr. Hecking is the reason I want to be your customer! You all have a wonderful day.
Just thought you might like to see pictures of Willie and me checking out the ACTHA trail at the Horse Center. Willie and I are also back to taking dressage lessons, and hope to enter Dressage With a View at the Horse Center on June 30th! Just Intro A and B, but not too shabby for all he has been through. None of this would be possible without all of your hard work, expert care and belief in us. Thank you so much!
