All livestock are boarded at our facility starting the day you purchase. It's $25 a day storage charge until pick up. Board starts the day you make a deposit or pay in full and ends the day you pick up. The first day payment is made, and the day of pick up are included in your board.
Under no circumstances is board to be waived unless you have a written and signed contract with Tara that states your board was waived. Unless that is present upon pick up you will be expected to pay $25 a day board with no discounted rate.
Board includes turnout storage, free choice hay, and water. Horses that need extra will be grained.
Board does not include any supplements, medication, or treats. You can purchase those, and we can accommodate giving them while boarded here.
Board is charged when the pickup appointment is scheduled. If your livestock will be staying longer than 30 days, we will bill you for board at the end of each month. Please see our hauling page for pick up hours and rules. No horse will be released until board, vet bills, and farrier work paid in full.

When purchasing a kill pen horse, you assume the risk associated with them.
Kill Pen horses that are bought often have little to no truthful information about their history.
We will not be able to provide you with any history other than what comes with them from the sale barn.
These horses are often stressed, and THEY WILL LOOSE WEIGHT. You will need to assess them once home for ulcers, sickness, under lying conditions, and behavioral issues.
We do our best to give you an assessment of the horse's demeanor, however horses can change once the environment changes. Some settle down and become more docile, and some get fat and sassy.
The reward to saving a life is totally worth the risk, associated with kill pen horses. But, please be realistic regarding live animals that we have limited truthful history of, that are exposed to sickness, and are stressed. The can loose weight standing depressed, and this isn't neglect on our part. They can get injured. They can be difficult to load, and handle when they are stressed. All of this can be addressed and fixed once they're removed from the kill pen and taken to quarantine or your horse to decompress.
PLEASE BE REALISTIC AND KIND WHEN SAVING A LIFE, DO NOT BE RUDE OR JUDGEMENTAL. That behavior is really a waste of time and energy.
