Overly Concerned!!!.....lol help! Quick

Good morning all!

I am debating to turn my horses (25) out today. I live in western MD and we are experiencing High winds up to 60mph gusts and between 20 and 40mph steady winds, and I'm not sure I want to turn the horses out due to possible debris in the air. But I also don't want to be a over protective mommy and keep them in.

Now tomorrow the wind is supposed to still be here but not as bad so I will turn them out tomorrow because the gusts are only supposed to get to 40mph with everything else around 25 to 20 mph wind.

Any advice would help!!!
Please respong quikly! Thank thank thank you

Will they have some shelter? Either trees or a run in? How big of an area are they going to be in? What's the temp?

Are they safer out or in? Even brand new barns can catch an odd gust of wind and become damaged.

its about 45 degrees with the wind. The mares (6) are in a field about 8 acres with a run in. And on the other side of trees.

The geldings go out in about a 14 acre field with a bank barn to get under. That they probably won't go under because of the round bale in the middle of the field that I put out yesterday...so

If they have a tree line to help break the wind some, I'd let them out.

I'd also try to check on them mid-day and see what's up. Horses are pretty tough critters.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
