 Blanket Service~

Blanket service will be available beginning October 1, 2011. If you sign up for blanket service, CRK staff will manage your horses blanketing needs. CRK Training Stable staff blankets according to the temperature, not according to the clock. Blankets are put on or taken off when the temperature is approximately 60 degrees. Blankets will be left on or off as weather conditions warrant.

Blanket service is billed on a monthly basis only. Partial months will be charged $3.00 per day. To request blanket service for your horse(s), please fill out a blanket service request form and place it, with payment, in the payment mailbox. The appropriate charge will then be added to your next statement.

Full service: $60.00 mo. -Includes putting the horse’s blanket on in the evening and removing it in the morning.($30.00 if the horse is in full training.)

Partial service: $40.00 mo. – Includes removing the blanket in the mornings OR putting it on at night. 

Vacation blanketing: $3.00 per day (am & pm)

Emergency blanketing or removal $5.00 per incident. (You must call to request emergency blanket service.)

            CRK Stable reserves the right to charge extra or deny blanketing service for difficult or uncooperative horses. An extra charge may also apply to train horses to stand to be blanketed.

Vet Schedules~

          Cheryl’s horses are due for their fall shots, are yours? Please be sure your horses are up to date so you don’t get charged a “Late Vaccination Fee”. Please keep in mind that some vaccines must be given twice a year. Some are only once a year. Most people give the 2X a year shots at the same time they give the annual ones, and that’s fine. That’s what I do. However; if you are late with the twice a year ones it doesn’t change the due date for once a year vaccines. Now you must give shots three times a year to keep up to date, since you no longer are giving the annual and semi-annual ones at the same time. Here is an example: Let’s say you give all the shots in June 2010 (West Nile, Rhino, Tetanus, WEE, EEE and Flu). Your semi-annual shots are due in December 2010 (West Nile, Rhino & Flu), but you forgot and didn’t do them until April 2011. Your annual shots(WEE, EEE and Tetanus) are still due in June 2011!! Your semi- annual shots are now due in October 2011. That’s 3 vet calls during 2011(April, June & October) because you forgot. I know we are all trying to save money on vet calls, but please don’t compromise the health of all the horses here at CRK for a few dollars. Plus, the late vaccination fees will cost more than the vet call charge would have been. 

           Now would be a good time to update your worming program as well. Let’s keep them all happy and healthy this fall!

            Doc’s Holly Smoke aka Holly is available for half lease. Riders must be capable of walk, trot and canter as well as complete grooming and saddling in order to lease a CRK horse.

Quotable Quotes~

The horse knows how to be a horse if we will leave him alone… but the riders don’t know how to ride. What we should be doing is creating riders and that takes care of the horse immediately. ~ Charles de Kunffy

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from any direction. ~ Cowboy saying

That’s all folks!
