Blackstone Stables, located at Hoffman Farms and Winery, is a full service boarding facility with both outdoor and indoor board available. Our facility consists of 50 indoor stalls located in our main barn for indoor boarding, as well as 5 pastures with run-in sheds available for those whose equine companions prefer to live outside.
Stall dimensions are based on whether you have a horse or a pony. Pony stalls are a standard 8 by 10 feet and horse stalls are a standard, and spacious, 12 by 12 feet. All horses (regardless of boarding outside or inside) are fed twice daily (once in the morning and once in the evening), along with hay and water being replenished 3-4 times a day, as needed. Stalled horses at our facility are turned-out in one of our 9 available pastures, daily, from 8 am to 2 pm. Each pasture provides access to 3+ acres of luxurious grassed space for your equine companion. Stalls are also cleaned and bedded daily (typically while horses are turned out) and water buckets are cleaned weekly.
Pasture with hay when needed
$450 per month
The diet of the horses that are boarded at our facility consists of a 12% protein-based pellet that is manufactured by Patriot. Special feeds are indeed available upon request and at expense of the individual boarder, but our staff will be happy to make sure that your horse has what it needs! Since we are located on such a vast majority of space, we have the privilege of having our own hay grown and cut from over 200 acres of our own fields.
There is also staff that reside on the property to look after the horses, and this makes it so someone is always available for assistance, if needed. All horses are cared for daily by our amazing grooms, no matter the environmental conditions. Blankets are also checked and changed to accommodate the ever changing weather conditions in Michigan, with no additional cost to the boarder. Our staff is also very observant, knowledgeable, and capable to provide the necessary care for any horse. They will also contact the trainer(s), owner(s), and vet (if needed) if they think it is necessary to do so.
