Frequently Asked Questions: CEM 10

Horses under CEM Quarantine at our facility stay in 16x16 ft. box stalls with rubber mats bedded in kiln-dried wood shavings. Stalls have front and back doors, and stall fronts have small mesh steel grid barriers for both observation and ventilation. Walls between adjacent stalls are solid floor-to-ceiling concrete to prevent any contact between horses. We are not a high traffic farm, thus once your horse settles in, we intend to provide as much as possible a peaceful and stress-free environment. Each stall has individual fan(s) to provide added ventilation in warm weather. All horses are managed with in-stall water buckets, fresh water provided multiple times per day, to encourage drinking and re-hydration following his or her long trip. Free-choice good quality grass hay is fed. We do not provide grain unless specifically requested, and prefer that if grain or supplements are fed that they be provided as a wet mash. You can transition your horse to grain once they are released from Quarantine and transported to your home farm. This is not a cost-cutting effort. Dr. Ley believes the stress of transport and transition to multiple new environments during the import process is significant enough without compounding it with a high carbohydrate load to the gastro-intestinal system.
