  • The only place to take your horse if you need the best care. We live 2 1/2 hours away in Southern Utah and this is our go-to place for all of our horses. Everything from colic issues to corrective shoeing or laminitis. At one of the more recent visits, we took our 2-year-old in for possible colic. There were 4 vets standing around our horse looking at test results and bouncing ideas off each other trying to determine what was going on.I should also mention they all remembered this horse from when she was born. The mom died of colic a week after giving birth. Desert Pines located a surrogate mom to help raise this new filly.
