WELFARE ALERT FOR HORSES – with cold weather & rain with risk of hail or snow forecast for the next few days here are some guidelines for horse owners. • Ensure that your horse has access to adequate food, water & shelter. The grass at this time of the year is often scarce & may not provide enough nutritional value for horses that are living out all year round. • Some horses will do well living out 24/7 however they must have access to either man made or natural shelter. Others will need to be rugged or stabled at night. • If you are putting a rug on your horse make sure it fits & is waterproof. • Provide fresh hay on a daily basis or put out a large round bale for larger groups of horses. The fibre from the hay will also help keep them warm as heat is generated when it is digested. • Horses can still get dehydrated in cold weather so ensure they have access to fresh, clean water at all times. Like human’s horses don’t like stale water. • Some horses may also need a hard feed (cereal or grain) so feed according to breed, type, age & workload. • Treat each horse as an individual & check their body condition, this will tell you how your horse is coping with the weather. • We would like to remind all horse owners that they have a legal responsibility to provide proper care for their equines
