It’s all about balance…

Although The Green Barn prides itself on natural and holistic horse care, the mantra is EVERYTHING IN BALANCE.  We firmly believe in allowing our horses to enjoy their natural habitat as much as possible, although recognize that many of them require an extra layer of blanketing on cold winter nights and a warm, fluffy bed of pine shavings.  … Continue Reading
