I completely agree and that is the way I'd go about it myself. I wouldn't want to associate with people who don't properly care for their animals.
The vaccine thing - just something small to add. I give my own as my family has for the last 50 years. As far as records go, I keep the label from the vaccines (most have a peel off sticker with a date/shot expiration and place to write when it was given) as well as the receipts with date purchased and delivery confirmation from the fedex man that gets put in each horse's records.
