Horses and severe weather?
I board my gelding at a pasture board facility. He is in a pasture around 100-125 acres. It is one giant pasture with wooded parts, open fields, streams, etc. There is no physical "shelter" the owner has put up, but it has so many large trees and coverage I feel he will be okay during most thunderstorms.
However, the mid-south is supposed to get very bad weather tonight and tomorrow. Straight-line winds, tornadoes, and large hail. I board him a little further north than where a majority of the severe weather is.. but I'm still worried for him.
What do you guys think? There isn't an option to put him up in a stall or take him anywhere, so I guess I'm worrying for no reason because I don't have a choice to do anything about it. I still want some two-cents though!
