Stalled horses exposed to light 24/7 in the barn
We are boarding our horses and we were lucky enough to be the only boarders for a while, now there is a boarder, so we need try to get along. We live in Ohio where the climate is cold in the winter and they insist on closing up the barn. I have found where that is not necessary and is bad for their lungs if the barn is exteremely dusty, like this one is. What I really have a question on is, they want to leave the barn lights on all night long. I don't. I can't find anything that says that it is harmful to the horses eyesight, but I think they need their natural night time too. I mean horses in the wild don't have a night light, not more than the moon and stars in the sky! What do you think?
