Welcome to PA Horse Farms & Properties Sign in | Help

As equestrians, many of us also share our homes with other furry friends. Dogs and cats live in our houses alongside us, and when it comes time to sell your PA horse farm, you may be at a loss as to what to do about your pets when getting your home ready for market.

Traditional home staging advice dictates that all evidence of pets should be removed from a home before taking photos or showing. Not everyone is an animal lover, and some people are extremely allergic to pets. Animal odors, pet hair, or chew toys on the floor can be a real turn-off to some buyers, so eliminating signs of dogs or cats that share your home is often a prudent choice.

However, if you are selling a horse property, you may want to advertise the fact that your home and property are animal-friendly. Buyers want to be able to envision themselves and their pets living comfortably in your home and barn.

But this doesn't mean that you can leave the litter box out in the open and dog hair collecting in the corners! Consider these helpful tips to showcase your pet-friendly home in a clean, attractive way:

-Be sure that any pet beds or blankets left out are clean and compliment the décor of your home. A new, clean dog bed is a visually pleasing way to indicate that your home is comfortable for pets as well as people.

-Similarly, clean, attractive water and food bowls that coordinate with the room they are in also send a great message to potential buyers with pets.

-Do remember to clean litter boxes and put them out of sight for showings and photos! Even for cat lovers, the sight and smell of a stinky litter box doesn't say "comfortable and inviting".

-If you hang collars and leashes visibly on a hook or rack, exchange ratty old leads for new ones, presenting a look that is both stylish and pet-friendly.

-Put away pet toys in an attractive box or basket.

-Ask a friend or neighbor if your home has any lingering pet odors. Unpleasant smells can cause buyers to have a very negative impression of your home, and can some times cost you a sale. Have floors and furniture professionally deep-cleaned, and replace any linens that may have a lingering dog or cat odor.

If you are selling your Pennsylvania horse property, there are lots of ways to showcase your home as pet-friendly while still appealing to buyers who may not have furry family members. Just remember to keep it clean, fresh-smelling, and visually appealing.

If you own a horse farm in Pennsylvania, what to do with your manure is a major concern! Furthermore, the state also requires farm owners to formulate a written manure management plan for any property that houses horses or livestock. Farm owners who are new to rural property ownership or those who want to learn more about how to write a manure management plan can attend a free workshop on April 27 at the Monroe County Conservation District in Stroudsburg, PA, held by the Penn State extension program. Proper manure handling is crucial to environmental health and clean water, and it's important that all PA horse farm owners have an understanding of the state requirements.

Seminar participants will learn about current state requirements for manure management, how to construct farm maps, and will receive help in writing a complete manure management plan for their PA horse farm. Those who attend will need to bring an aerial map of their farm, which can be obtained from an online mapping service such as Google or Bing. Participants will get the chance to speak with experts about the state requirements as well as how to handle manure on their own properties.

For more information on this seminar or to register, contact Donna Foulk: dlf5@psu.edu, Heather Stofanak: haf10@psu.edu, or Matt Giambra: mgmccd@psu.edu. Or you can call the Northampton Extension Office: 610-746-1970.

 Winter will soon be over and we'll all be riding again here in Eastern PA! As you anxiously await the start of spring's equestrian activities, now is a great time to take inventory of your tack and equipment. While you're waiting for the snow to melt, take the opportunity to figure out what equipment you need, and what you can stand to get rid of. If you're planning on putting your PA horse farm on the market this year, you have an even better incentive to clean out your tack room! 

Once you've determined what you can keep, what can go, and what you need to buy, be sure to visit the Northampton County 4-H Tack Swap. The event will be held on April 9, 2016 from 11am until 2pm at the Northampton County 4-H Center. If you have a lot of items to sell, you can reserve a table inside the building ahead of time. Outside tables will also be available on the day of the swap. Or, just come and shop for great deals on tack and equipment! Food will be available to purchase, but the club will not allow pets or live animals at the sale. 

The 4-H Tack Swap is sure to be a fun day and a great way to meet your fellow local equestrians! So come on out, clean out your tack room, and come ready with a shopping list! 

For more information on the Tack Swap or to reserve a table, contact Jan Martin: 610-837-7294

As shocking as it may be, not everyone appreciates horses! A big part of owning a PA horse farm is being a good neighbor to surrounding property owners. That means making living next to your equine friends a pleasant thing instead of a headache. Especially if your neighbors are close to your barn, you'll want to take time to make sure that your horses aren't causing any kind of disturbance to others. This kind of consideration goes a long way to helping preserve our equestrian community and open spaces!

Maintaining your fencelines is important not only for the safety of your horses, but also for keeping shared property lines neat and tidy. Keep fences in good repair and be sure to mow and weedwhack along fences, keeping areas that face your neighbors cleanly mowed. Be sure that all of your horse fencing is intact and secure - few things turn people off of horses more than a loose horse in their garden.

Manure management is also critical in maintaining good relationships with your neighbors. Even if they are ‘horse people', most neighbors object to a large, smelly, out-of-control manure pile. Not only is a large manure pile unsightly and malodorous, it also attracts flies to the area, which are annoying no matter which side of the fence you're on. Be sure you are composting your manure properly in an out-of-the-way spot, or having it removed by a manure removal company on a regular basis.

As with all relationships, communication with your non-horsey neighbors is key. Keep in touch and be aware of how your horse keeping affects those around you.  Be considerate of your neighbors, and you'll be the most well-liked farm owner in your neighborhood!

Just before Christmas, there were several confirmed cases of the neurological strain of Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1) in a Bucks County, PA boarding barn, resulting in the deaths of four horses so far. The facility has been placed under state-sanctioned quarantine, and both state and local veterinarians are doing their best to contain the outbreak of this deadly virus. EHV-1 is highly contagious and often fatal, but there are steps you can take to keep your horses safe and your Pennsylvania horse farm free of disease.

The most effective and important thing you can do is practice good biosecurity protocol. If there is an outbreak in your immediate area, it is always a good idea to keep your horses home! Do not trailer or ride your horse to other facilities, and do not allow outside horses on your farm. In the case of EHV-1, two weeks is generally a safe time period to be on ‘lockdown', but if you are unsure of anything, call your vet. 

If you must travel to other farms, take care that you are not spreading any unwanted microbes. It's wise to change clothes and shower between barns, and to have separate footwear for each farm you visit. Bleach and heat both do a great job of disinfecting clothing and shoes, and it's simple to prevent the spread of infection just by keeping things clean.

It's also important to monitor your own horses closely, especially if they have been traveling or otherwise in contact with other horses from outside your home barn. Take temperatures frequently, and keep a close eye on your animals so that you can catch any changes in condition or behavior as soon as possible. If EHV-1 is in your area and your horse has a temperature greater than 101, call your vet immediately!

Even if there is no immediate threat of a deadly virus outbreak, good biosecurity protocol can help prevent these types of outbreaks from happening. When new horses arrive at your farm, it's always smart to quarantine them away from other animals for a short period of time. When you are out and about at shows, trail rides, or lessons, don't allow your horse to touch noses with strange equines.  Get your horses vaccinated on a regular schedule, and ask your vet about ways to keep your horses healthy.

Penn Vet's New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, PA is one of the nation's foremost equine veterinary hospitals. From routine exams to cutting-edge surgeries and diagnostics, New Bolton's vets work hard to keep Eastern PA horses healthy.

Among the many veterinary services offered here is care for pregnant mares and their foals. Mares prone to foaling complications are admitted to the hospital before giving birth, and babies born with ‘special needs' receive the treatment they need in the Neonatal ICU. These fragile infants need monitoring around the clock, and to help care for them New Bolton recruits volunteers to act as Foal Sitters during the foaling season. Foal sitters assist hospital staff in meeting the needs of newborn horses. 

If you would like to have a part in taking care of baby horses this winter and spring, you can apply to be a foal sitter at New Bolton Center. Night owls are particularly appreciated, as most mares tend to give birth in the middle of the night.  Foal sitters must be at least 16 years old, and can apply to volunteer by sending an email to: foalsitters@nicuvet.com.  Sitters will be assigned to one of three 8-hour shifts to be able to assist hospital staff 24 hours a day. Shifts begin in February and go through June, when foaling season ends.

As a foal sitter, you can expect to help out with holding foals upright when they lay down, helping staff members stand and turn foals, milking mares, monitoring equipment and alarms, changing bedding, cleaning equipment and facilities, and restocking treatment areas. No matter what duties you end up performing as a volunteer foal sitter, you'll be helping new equine babies get the very best start they can.

Foal sitting is a wonderful experience for students looking to study veterinary medicine, those interested in breeding, and anyone with horse sense and a willingness to stay up all night waiting for the chance to see a foal being born. If foal sitting sounds like a volunteer opportunity you'd like to take advantage of, contact New Bolton and apply today!

After a disappointing cancellation of the Pan American Endurance Championships, local rider Holly Corcoran moved on to compete in the North American Endurance Team Challenge. She rode her horse Poete, with student Emily Stemmler riding veteran endurance horse Faveur. While Holly chose to retire early on in the race due to Poete not feeling 100% sound, Emily and Faveur went on to finish 7th overall and contributed to a gold medal finish for their team! Congratulations to Emily! 

 

After the NAETC, Holly went on to compete Poete in the 50 mile race at the AERC National Championships in Virginia. This time her horse was feeling up to the challenge, and finished 10th overall, handling the rocky terrain with ease.  We wish Holly and Poete all the best for next season!
