To Do This Month: Check Foals, Hay, and Fencelines

FOAL PREP, HAY CONSUMPTION, FENCE REPAIR

Prep for foaling: Get your foaling stall/area ready. Program your vet’s office/cell numbers into your cell phone. Assemble your foaling kit after searching that term at HorseandRider.com.

Up the hay: On winter’s coldest days, give your horses more hay, not more grain. Digesting the roughage in hay creates body warmth, while too much grain can upset a horse’s digestive system, even leading to colic.

Check fence lines: Winter weather is hard on fences. Make sure yours are still horse-safe and secure.
