Fall Farm Prep

Readying your property now will save you lots of headaches once Old Man Winter comes to visit.

It may still feel like fall to you, but your horses know better! Odds are they’ve started to put on their winter coats in response to the diminishing hours of daylight, and there may already be a chill in the air, a forerunner of the cold weather to come. With winter on the horizon, why not spend a few hours—or days—getting your stable and farm ready? It’s a lot more pleasant to do winter prep work while the weather is still nice, and there are a few jobs that you won’t be able to do once there is snow on the ground. Here are a few things you’ll want to prepare.

BLANKETS: Do you blanket your horse in the winter? Perhaps you have an older horse, or one that is clipped or doesn’t naturally put on a very thick coat. Now is the time to sort through the shelves in the tack room and find these items that haven’t been in use since last March.
