Care & Nursing home
At De Lindehoeve we think it is important that horses can enjoy their retirement in a healthy way.
The stables are spacious and have a fresh stable climate. New single boxes have been made at the retirement home. At the moment we are still working on an paddock for the horses.
Resting and repairing your injured horse is also possible at De Lindehoeve. Your horse shall be placed in a group. However, the condition applies that your horse is not too sick or injured for joining a group. We also have separate boxes where the horses can recuperate, and they get enough exercise in the paddock.
The horses in the resting home have a free entrance and exit from the stable. In winter months (October to May) the horses have a run from the stable to the paddock. In summer months (May to October) there is the extension to the meadows. As a result, the horses stay fit, which means stable faults are less likely to occur.
Complete grazing is also an option in our resting home. We have a group of horses that is grazing day and night. When your horse is healthy and can handle unlimited grass, your horse can be added to this group. If your horse does not function in the group, it can also be set completely apart. All decisions will be only made in consultation with you, of course.
Daily care and medication
The horses have unlimited access to silage. This silage comes from our own soil, so that we can guarantee the quality. We also pay a lot of attention to the medical care of your horse. We have the horses trimmed four times a year. We also give a suitable deworming 4 times a year, where we do a manure study 1 time in april. We also take care of the annual influenza vaccination.
If your horse is injured and needs extra treatment or needs to be connected, we can arrange this of course.
In general, the horses have sufficient hay and haylage, The group with the oldest horses is standardly fed with maize/corn from October. This is to prevent them from deteriorating in condition. If desired, we can feed chunk, but then your horse must be placed separately in a single box to prevent feeding envy
