Stable Management ran a five-part series on why and how horse farms and stables should inventory. Whether you are a one-person horse farm or a large multi-trainer boarding facility, this annual review of your belongings is important for many reasons, not the least of which is for your protection if you have a loss from theft, fire or natural disaster. There also is the need to inventory for accounting if you sell or consume products, such as feed or hay.
Contingency Plans for your Equine Business
Whether you have a one-person staff at your equine facility or you have multiple barns, clients, riding instructors, veterinarians and farriers, you need to have a plan for what to do if a person or service provider cannot perform their normal duties.
