Equipment and Storage

An on-farm storage shed houses our log books, a three-day supply of hay to avoid numerous trips to our hay storage barn, horse care supplies, and basic lawn maintenance equipment. Our hay storage shed is a 26' x 36' ClearSpan storage structure adjacent to our research barn at our Equine Research Unit . 

For maintaining our pastures, we use a John Deere tractor with various attachments for mowing, overseeding, and fertilization. For mowing, we use an 8’ rotary mower. For application of commercially available herbicides we use a 2 gallon sprayer that has wheels for ease of use.
