At Cotton Meadows Farm, our primary goal is to maintain the physical and mental well-being of our horses. Our stalls are designed with steel railings on the inside walls between the horses allowing for good ventilation and to allow the horses to see other. The rubber mats, fans, and skylights in each stall also contribute to the comfort of the horse. We strongly believe in keeping their environment as natural as possible so our horses get turned out at night in the summer and during the day in the winter, usually in small groups.
