  • MILLENNIUM FARMS Raising Horses Right from Day One
    03/12/2021

     There is no better place in the country—maybe the world—to raise a horse than the Bluegrass. That’s not only due to the hue of our famed mineral-rich forage. The best stallions, veterinary hospitals, auction houses, and horsemen call Central Kentucky home, and Millennium Farms is in the heart of it all, putting those resources to good use and raising horses right from day one.

    “Raising a healthy, sound, competitive athlete is at the core of our entire program. From what they eat to how they’re cared for and handled, we take very seriously the decision that was made by each of our customers to place their horses in our care,” said J. Ted Neel, general manager of Millennium Farms.

    Farm management continually assesses each horse’s weight and condition, making incremental adjustments as needed to its diet, exercise, and daily routine. Nutrition is integral to raising a sound, healthy horse, so Neel and his team source the best hay available and regularly assess the mineral content of their pastures, then work with their feed provider to blend a feed that balances the nutrients and minerals available through forage. The result is an optimized nutrition plan for horses at every stage of their life, whether it be a gestating or nursing mare, weanling, yearling, breeding stallion, or a horse on layup or transitioning away from the racetrack. Just as no two horses are the same, no two customers are either.

    The team at Millennium Farms takes pride in getting to know its customers on a personal level, offering each of them the services and types of communication that suits best. “We tailor our services and approach to each horse to ensure they are afforded every possible opportunity to meet their potential,” said Neel. “The same goes for our clients. Whether it’s how often and in what format they prefer to receive updates on their horses to working with them to define, refine, and meet their goals, we work hard to provide the same level of individualized attention to our customers that we do for their horses.”
