Why might I need more field shelters for winter?
When cold weather kicks in, it’s natural to consider cost-effective ways to keep your beloved horses warm. During winter, many horse owners require additional field shelters to safeguard their horses from the harsh weather conditions. These shelters offer essential protection against cold temperatures, rain, snow, and biting winds, ensuring that the horses remain warm and dry.
In winter, natural forage becomes scarce, making it necessary for owners to provide supplementary feed. Field shelters serve as a dry space for horses to consume their food, preventing exposure to the elements. Moreover, these shelters prevent horses from standing in muddy areas, which can lead to hoof problems and skin issues due to the wet and muddy conditions prevalent in winter. Additionally, having a sheltered area facilitates regular monitoring of the horses’ health, enabling owners to detect and address any illnesses or injuries promptly.
Furthermore, during cold spells, field shelters play a vital role in reducing stress among horses. Constant exposure to cold and wet conditions can lead to heightened stress levels, adversely impacting their well-being. Having access to a sheltered space provides horses with a safe and stress-free environment, promoting their overall mental and physical health. Additionally, these shelters are crucial for pregnant mares and young foals, who are especially vulnerable to cold weather. The shelters offer a secure space for foaling and rearing, ensuring the safety and comfort of both the mares and their offspring.
