FREEZING RAIN & SNOW STORM... Suggestions for temp shelter
I just took in a gelding that had been abandoned and it all happened a lot faster than I thought it was going to. He has been out in a pen by himself until he got use to the new environment and updated on vaccines & wormed. Well... we got hit with a storm today, they have been saying it was coming for 1 1/2 weeks now and we were hoping to make it at least until tomorrow so we could make a shelter. Well... the freezing rain is hitting us tonight, we have already accumulated about 5 inches of snow this morning. He has a blanket, but I will feel terrible if it rains! I need suggestions for a quick, temporary shelter. I was thinking of making an A frame with 2x4's (or something a little bigger) and then covering it with a tarp.... think that would work?? My husband is almost off work and we are getting down to business when he gets home to get my new baby some cover!
Any other suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! It needs to be portable because I just have him in their round pen at the moment.
