Blue Chip Farms recognizes the importance for young horses to receive plenty of turnout, socialization with others their age, and the importance of properly managing their first few years of life.
Weanlings and yearlings are shed-raised, separated by age and sex, and grouped into 12-15 depending on the size of the field (minimum of 20 acres). These groups will have 24-hour turnout in fields with large run-in straw-bedded sheds for feeding and shelter.
The staff closely monitors the health, weight, and developmental needs of each individual. High quality hay and grain is fed each day. The fields are tested yearly for nutrients. Blue Chip’s staff provide physical updates for owners who can’t visit regularly.
