Cindy Daigre has been providing nutritional and special needs consulting services for senior equine owners since 2000. She owns and operates Ferrell Hollow Farm, a specialized boarding facility for senior, retired horses located on 70 acres in the peaceful hills of MiddleTennessee.
Consultations focus on the unique nutritional challenges specific to senior horses. Proper nutrition affects nearly every aspect of the senior’s quality of life and can differ greatly from horse to horse.
$50 per hour conducted by phone and/or via email. Checks and Money Orders are accepted.
Who benefits from nutritional consults?
Nutritional consults are especially beneficial for those caring for older horses that
have difficulty maintaining a healthy weight;
are dentally challenged; or
have Cushings Disease
If you are unable to board your senior horse with a specialized facility, a customized nutritional consult will be very helpful as you establish a healthy continuum of care for your retired horse.
Very specific information about your horse and his/her current nutritional program will be needed for an effective consultation. Once you sign up for a consult, Ferrell Hollow Farm will send you an intake form for you to provide the information and set up a time for the initial consult.
