Just as local building codes provide guidelines for overall shed construction, they will also dictate the specifications for adding a ramp to a structure. Here are two basic building considerations to keep in mind:
A cleaning position is exactly as it sounds. You will be cleaning cages and the different areas in the shelter to help keep things looking good and to maintain a healthy place for the animals, staff and visitors. If you have the skills, you may also be tasked with giving the animals baths and possibly even grooming them or handling regular care, like teeth cleaning and nail cutting. However, usually only those with previous experience can provide grooming services because training isnt usually offered.
The largest challenge for those who chose to maintain a holistic barn is vaccinations. Most barn managers have regularly scheduled veterinary visits to vaccinate all their boarders for Equine Flu, Tetanus, Rabies, West Nile, etc. Again, we choose a different approach. We offer immune builder regimens and homeopathic nosodes (oral vaccines) instead. If a boarder chooses to have their horses vaccinated, their horses are given immune boosters before and after along with homeopathic Thuja to help prevent vaccinosis reactions. They are also separated by at least one stall from the rest of the horses, as they may shed live virus after being vaccinated.
