Even for the healthiest of horses, an annual wellness exam is a key component of health care.

Ensuring the health of your horse starts with regular check-ups from a veterinarian. SmartPak stands for healthy horses and believes in the importance of horses having routine wellness visits, which is why they include it as part of the ColiCare™ Annual Wellness Requirements.

ColiCare is a free, veterinarian-directed wellness program that provides up to $7,500 in colic surgery reimbursement. It brings together SmartPak’s best hindgut supplements with annual wellness care from the veterinarian to help keep horses healthy. If your horse is already receiving annual wellness exams, you’re one step closer to meeting the requirements for SmartPak’s ColiCare Program.

When the 2007 Cedar Fire blew through our San Diego County community I wrote in my Equestrian Newsletter, www.ranchandestatehomes.com, that I wasn’t required to evacuate but was prepared to do so with trailer hooked up and then macaw cages ready.  On the morning of Dec. 7, this 2017 Lilac Fire forced me to run.  From the moment I spotted smoke to the east of our ranch I had less than an hour to load our horses, unload the safe and grab genealogy and treasured family photos on the wall before I threw the power switches on our gates and drove west with our 3 dogs.   The old Vessels Ranch was burning right across the street from our entrance gates and continued, I was to learn later, through our ranch and up over the hill to the San Luis Rey Downs Thoroughbred Training facility causing terrible devastation.
