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.
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.
You have a great facility in a good location, nice pastures, amazing barn help, excellent vets, farriers, trainers and other service providers. With all that going for you, shouldn't word-of-mouth marketing be your best advertising tool?
