Stop by after lunchtime when the race excitement is over and life returns back to normal here. See you soon!

  • Horse Care 101: Fly Masks

    9/16/21

    Flies can be annoying especially when you don’t have hands to shoo them away. Yes, a tail is great for swatting but these masks work well for the front end.

    Fact: The fly masks are made of mesh which the horses can see through. The mesh provides adequate air flow underneath.

    Fact: The masks keep flies and other insects off their heads, including their ears. Insect bites hurt.

    Fact: Marty sprays their legs to keep flies from biting there, too.

    Fact: Charlies doesn’t like to stand still. He and Trace are given sweet corn to eat to keep them distracted. Works like a charm.

    When you visit our Oswego farm for the Saturday & Sunday Fall Festivities, be sure to say hello to our Thoroughbreds, Charlie and Trace!
