Please feel free to contact us if you would like more information on Grand Premium Plus or our experience using it. If you are a trainer, we would be happy to give you contact information for the V.I.P. Program so that you can look into starting your own trial. For those of you with one or two horses, we will be happy to pass along our discount code so that you can try GPP at a discount.
Both farms feature multiple 3-5 acre pastures, each with paddocks and run-in sheds to separately house two horses. Given the climate in Georgia, we feel that this allows our horses the healthiest possible environment, both physically and mentally, where they are out all day, every day (except in inclement weather) and in paddocks at night where they have shelter without being confined to a stall.
Expansion of the facility is an ongoing process. We have completed a 100'x200' covered riding arena and are finishing the buildout of the attached 40'x125' center aisle stable with European stalls, two grooming/wash racks, laundry and formal tack room. We continue to fence additional pastures and paddocks to allow for expansion and rotation. Future plans include an outdoor arena and permanent jump chute.
Originally located on 13-acres in Comer GA, BlackWatch Stables expanded in 2012 to include a 106 acre farm five miles away in Danielsville. It has been/is a slow process, but we are building out the new property with an eye toward providing our horses with a healthy, safe environment with plenty of room to move, and for us, an efficient and attractive layout.
As every horse owner knows, one size does not fit all when it comes to horses and one of the biggest problem areas is nutrition. The trick is to be able to find quality products that allow you to provide exceptional nutrition to a broad range of animals efficiently and at a reasonable cost. We are pleased to say that we have found a feed and supplement combination that does exactly that: Purina Ultium feeds and Grand Meadows Grand Premium Plus supplement.
The crown jewel in our feeding program is a new product by Grand Meadows. Grand Premium Plus is not currently available through retailers and we are grateful for the opportunity to become members of their V.I.P. Program and serve as a test barn for this fantastic product. Grand Premium Plus offers maximum support for our horses, covering joint, hoof, tendon/ ligament, digestive/immune, skin/coat as well as vitamins and minerals, all at high concentrations.
Purina Ultium Growth has worked out incredibly well for our youngsters and pregnant mares. Ultium Competition has provided ample cool calories to our working horses and has been very useful in adding and maintaining weight in horses that have a problem keeping weight on. Add in Purina Senior for our grand dames, and we have an effective and efficient feeding program.
We have been feeding Grand Premium Plus at half-strength for 3 years now and the changes in our horses have been noticeable. Their hooves are in better condition than they have ever been, they are utilizing their food more efficiently, moving better, looking better. . . The list goes on and on. The added bonus is that we have stopped feeding separate joint supplements, hoof supplements, etc. and no longer have to add oil to grain to make sure supplements are consumed - the horses lick it up! We couldn't be happier with Grand Premium Plus. It has had a noticeably positive impact on our horses, while saving us time, money and eliminating waste.
