The management philosophy at Willow Oak Ranch is simple. TAKE CARE OF YOUR HORSE AND SHE WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU. This means, LISTEN TO YOUR HORSE AND SHE WILL TELL YOU WHAT SHE NEEDS. Obviously, we employ all of the best techniques including BIG ASS circulation fans to ensure air quality , Foal Alert devices, and foaling stall cameras to ensure mare foaling safety, modern open air designed horse stables, two sided service and entry stalls, specially designed feed for mare, foals, weanlings and yearlings, imported Nevada Desert Alpha Hay and Timothy Grass Hay. (Despite raising over 500 round bales of Alpha and 1500 round bales of grass hay for cattle, we follow Joe Taylor of Gainesway and Taylor Made Fame advice that high quality horse hay cannot be grown in the Southeast. The high humidity makes it very difficult to avoid the threat of hay mold and the subsequent colic attacks) and many other state-of-the-art features. But we never forget our simple management philosophy.
