Veterinarians

Pre-purchase exams are a good idea, but we don't require them.  We will make sure our horses have Coggins and Health Papers (at our expense) prior to shipping as long as we have 2 weeks of advance warning in order to get those back prior to shipping. 

But most people recommend that buyers have a vet check their horse before they buy it.  It isn't foolproof, but can be helpful.  Pre-purchase exams are at the buyers' expense.

Below is a list of fairly local veterinarians that you can call if you would like to have a pre-purchase exam done.  If you call and discuss the exam and billing arrangements with the vet, just let us know and we'll then call and schedule the appointment.  Most vets in our area only charge about $50 (2010) for a trip charge to visit our farm, and then would charge for the exam (which would vary, depending upon what you request that they do).  Be sure to tell them that we live 3 miles south of Bedford so they can inform you if we are in their service area.

We want you to feel assured that the vet is working for YOUR best interests, and not ours.  That is why we suggest that you call the vet first to discuss your needs, before we make contact with them to set the appointment.  You can discuss anything special that you'd like for the vet to examine in addition to learning what their typical exam includes.

The *'s indicate vets we routinely use.  You can use them, as we trust them, or you can use an impartial vet who we do not use (the ones with no asterisks).  There are advantages both ways, so we wanted to be sure you knew which vets were ours in order to make your choice.
