Four Oaks Farm Product’s hoof powder

Thrush is just one of those things- totally inevitable. We use Four Oaks Farm Products ‘s hoof powder. It has totally changed the way we handle thrush in the barn, and it’s so easy to use. We use it almost every day to prevent thrush and protect our horses’ feet!


We had super weather and lovely courses at Waredaca this weekend! Congrats to our riders who got to enjoy the weekend. And to our riders who were out last weekend too!

Thank you to the ABBF Team

I just want to take a second and recognize all of the people who are part of our team at ABBF who might not board with us or work every day on the property. First our longtime vet Dr. Engel at Ridgeview Veterinary Practice for the fabulous care, as well as Mythic Landing Enterprises, LLC who handles a lot of the back-end business that gets forgotten between the shuffle of people and horses. When you work in this industry you need to find people you trust to take over what they are best at; and we are so lucky that our team is the best of the best!
