horse in hail storm

my 21yr old qh had a shelter to run into, but chose to stay out in the hail storm. :x We had marble size hail. he is ok. I guess the hail on the tin roof was to loud to his sensitive hearing. smart horse I guess. :?

I'm sure he would have chosen noise over injury if it was hurting him...just have a feel around his body to make sure he doesn't have any sensitive areas.

Whenever it hails here, our mares prefer to stay out also. They just turn to keep their butts into the hail and their heads down to keep the hail from hitting their faces.

I'm glad he's okay. ;) Yeah, a lot of horses just stay out. They are pretty funny that way!

Ride more, worry less.
