A separate facility, the Equine Park Annex, is also available to house horses. This site includes a 24-stall barn, paddocks, and pastures with run-in sheds. The annex also is the location of a separate USDA-approved quarantine facility, operated by the college's Diagnostic Laboratory, for the testing of imported horses for contagious equine metritis. We are able to perform breeding soundness examinations as well as freeze semen from stallions during their quarantine period.
