Comments: (6/1/08) - "Scott and Janet were friendly and available. Did a great job offering a large arena for our tired horse. Would recommend.". . . (4/23/13) - "My 2 year old filly was being transported from BC, Canada to PA, USA when the transporter had truck problems. It was a week before another shipping company was able to pick her up. In the interim I feel that Scott kept my filly calm, happy and healthy. When she did finally roll home she was in excellent condition both physically and mentally. Thank you so much Scott for taking the time with my filly and keeping me informed of how she was doing!". . . (8/10/14) - "Easy access from I-80. Scott met us at the intersection near his ranch and lead us in. He gave Dancer fresh water and a large indoor round pen to roll in and stretch his legs. The place was clean, well lit. Scott was friendly and helpful; we parked right next to Dancers door and plugged in. And the rates were very reasonable. We plan on staying there again on our return trip.". . . (9/15/16) - "Very nice facility. Scott met me when I arrived. Very accommodating. Clean & safe stalls. Parked 52 ft. rig in front of the barn with 30 amp electric available. Will use again when traveling. Great place to overnight!!"

Comments: (3/10/13) - "Super nice guy. Made room for me when we were caught in a storm, even though his horses had to go out. Horses were so happy to be out of the trailer and in stalls.

Thanks so much for making my trip out west easier!" (7/29/13) - "Chuck was very helpful and friendly, beautiful grass paddocks and nice clean stalls for our horse and pony. He even turned my spirited half Arab out in the morning to run off some energy before another long day on the road. What a relief to have a great, safe place to keep our horses overnight while traveling cross country! Thanks so much!". . . (9/1/13) - "Our host was very welcoming. We really enjoyed the tv and fan on the porch on a hot night. Nice safe fencing and big paddocks!". . .

I highly recommend this place.". . . (11/12/13) - "Chuck was extremely friendly and accommodating.

(7/17/16) - "My daughter and I were meeting our horse's new owner and turning her over in Des Moines. Due to issues at the border we did not arrive until 3:00 a.m. and Chester was there to meet us. The pictures do not do the place justice. The farm is on the edge of town and is very clean and well kept. At 3:00 a.m. Chester was as pleasant and welcoming as he was when we came back at 11:00 a.m. Our experience could not have been better. My daughter and I feel very lucky to have been able to meet Chester. (Lol, we are not family "plugging" his barn).". . . (10/31/16) - "Very pleased with our over night stalling. Chuck was a super host! Freshly bedded, safe stalls and we were able to plug into electric right by the barn. We will definitely be back!"
