Lay Up Care

Injured horses take a special level of care. Dragonfly Farms offers thorough, professional attention for the best recuperation possible. Katherine Burke Johnson, DVM is happy to work closely with your veterinarian and the individualized return to work program prescribed for your horse. Large stalls, several paddock sizes and a serene barn offer an excellent opportunity to heal. We find that even the most energetic horse will settle into their stall rest in this environment.

Some of the services we provide include-

  • wound care
  • post surgical rehabilitation
  • medication administration
  • stall rest
  • hand walking
  • small paddock turn out
  • under saddle work or lunging for fitness

Lay up care pricing varies according to amount of stall rest, bandaging, hand walking and medication management that a horse may need. This service runs from $25 - $50.00/ day. Please call or email to discuss the individual needs of your horse.
