Keeping horses cool in the heat

1 08 2006

Right now, the humidex here is hovering around 46C (that’s about 125F). When the weather’s like this, it’s important to make sure that your horse is cool and hydrated. Over about about.com, you’ll find strategies for preventing heat stroke in equines and what to do if it happens, while Equisearch offers a detailed list of heat stress symptoms. If you’re using fans in the barn, please make absolutely sure that wires and cords are kept well away from where animals can get at them; horses are curious critters and one mouthy grab could be fatal.
