    Horses & tornado

    This may not be the right forum for this question but... We just had a tornado watch. Luckily it stayed away from us. Having had my 2 geldings for just 3 months I had no idea what to do with them when the warning was issued. The dogs & cats I can throw in the closet with me but what do you do with a 16.5 Thoroughbred and 11.4 Arabian??? I have a 140 year old barn they go in and out of at will and 3 acres of pasture.

    The only thing you can do is let them loose and hope for the best. This works only if you have sufficient time to get to them. I lived in tornado alley for 10 years so I know that unless they are literally in your backyard you won't have the time. All you can really do is make sure you can get them back if they have to run away. Have proof of ownership in your tornado safe room and make sure you have other places to store copies. Also give copies to friends and family. Put tags on your horses if you keep them haltered. Or better yet, get them microchipped. All you can really do is prepare and hope nothing comes your way.
