BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - Water covers some of the roadways around Palm Meadows in Boynton Beach, but its 1,424 stalls are dry and open for horses left stranded in Isaac's flood waters!
David Wagner is taking advantage of the thoroughbred training facility’s generous offer.
"It's just great. It's nice having somebody help you out," Wagner said.
Horses stay free until the water goes down. Wagner has 12 boarded at Palm Meadows. His barn and home in The Acreage were flooded during Isaac.
“I’m one of the places people used to send horses to even though i only had one or two open stalls and this time i couldn't take anybody in," Wagner said.
Lucky for his horses, the favor is being returned.
“We just thought it was a great gesture on our part to be able to help out those people in need,” Palm Meadows General Manager Gary Van Den Broek said.
The horses that compete at Gulfstream Park only stay here between October and May, that's why there is plenty of room!
“We're offering them a nice dry stall they come in and take care of their horses and bring their hay and feed and whatever have you,” Van Den Broek said.
“I'm already way over budget for this month in feed and shavings and stuff that is going to cost me and whatever. I couldn't afford, and neither could any of my clients."
Palm Meadows said they can stay as long as they need and there's plenty of room for more.
If you’d like to board your horses at Palm Meadows, you can call Gary Van Den Broek at 561-248-9036.
