Dr. Judy Tubman &
Kent Veterinary Center
Welcome to Glasgow Farm, a luxurious retirement home for horses in search of unlimited turnout and big, airy stalls with interior and exterior Dutch doors designed for optimum hanging out. And yes, fans are included.
This 100-acre farm is located on the eastern shore of Maryland, where the climate is temperate and the livin’ is easy. Glasgow is a high-quality, all-inclusive retirement operation run by Dr. Judy Tubman, whose state-of-the-art clinic—Kent Veterinary Center—is conveniently located on the farm. Dr. Tubman lives there as well, making this a 24-7 eyes-on facility for both retirees and patients.
Glasgow is a boutique horse facility, offering twenty-seven retirement stalls, some 12’X13’ and some as big as 12‘X16’. There are a half-dozen 5- to 10-acre fields for social retirees and eight 1-acre paddocks for those who prefer alone time.
Unlike other retirement barns in the Northeast, Glasgow Farm does not treat its tenants as part of an assembly line. Instead, each horse’s unique nutritional and medical needs are assessed on arrival and adjusted as necessary throughout his or her stay. Retirees with special needs are housed in the “upper” barn, contiguous to the clinic, where they are assessed and stabilized by Dr. Tubman and her staff of professional caretakers.
All this at no additional cost! Also included in the monthly board are nutritional consults with Dr. Tubman which assist in the development of a customized feed program, including hay and Buckeye feed. We take great in the bathing and grooming of our horses, not just knocking off. In addition to our medical administration, we provide stall mucking and blanket changing.
And here’s the kicker. Part of the staff’s meticulous grounds maintenance includes the removal of manure from the paddocks, fields and sheds. Every day! This routine mucking decreases the fly and parasite infestation that can be bothersome in turnout.
Nothing at Glasgow is too good for your horse!
